|The 1 to 1 Club is a special recognition program aimed at recognizing those Pontiac enthusiasts who have achieved one horsepower per cubic inch of engine displacement (or more) in their traditional Pontiac V8 engines. By definition, traditional Pontiac engines are those V8 blocks of similar design manufactured between 1955 through 1981.
The focus of The 1 to 1 Club is engine power. While a car’s ability to fly down the quarter mile may be evidence of an engine’s power, the real focus is on the Pontiac engine.

WHAT IS THE BEST EVIDENCE TO PROVE ENGINE POWER?
DOES THE SUBJECT ENGINE HAVE TO BE DYNOED TO PROVE POWER?
2. Weight slips showing weight of the car in which the traditional Pontiac V8 powers. The weight of a car relates to power. The heavier the mass the more torque must be delivered to make it move quickly. Weight is clearly a factor to be considered in determing power.
3. Chassis dyno report(s) reflecting power delivered to the rear wheels. The report must show the date of runs and the name, location, and phone number of the facility. Providing a copy of the paid bill for dyno services rendered will help substantiate the truth of the documentation. Rear wheel power may vary between testing machines, yet the data provided is another indicator of just how powerful a particular engine is. Loss of power from the flywheel to the rear tires also varies depending upon the engine and testing procedures. A twenty (20%) or more loss due to driveline friction is not uncommon.
4. Three (3) photos (standard or digital) of the car and subject engine. Example: 1) a photo of the engine in the engine bay (frontal), 2) a photo of car launching from green light, 3) a photo of your car passing through the traps with time and mph being displayed, 4) a video tape showing the engine, the car staging, making a pass, and showing ET and MPH on the track’s display.
WHAT ELSE MUST BE PROVIDED?
Block: year, casting number, and original cubic inch displacement
Bore and stroke: provide over bore dimensions and change in stroke from stock
Heads: provide the casting number found on the center exhaust or elsewhere when applicable; provide details on springs, installed height, valve sizes and oil control. Porting: provide details on the nature and extent of porting, if any.
Intake: provide intake type (iron or aluminum), OEM (with casting numbers) or after market manufacturer. Include any modifications to the ports and plenum as well as spacers, if any.
Carb(s): Make, type and any special jetting and tuning performed. If a fuel injected system, provide all relevant details, plus a close up *photo of the engine’s intake and fuel injection system.
