try to get turbo from GMC Savana
Saw some really nice turbo cars recently...T/A w/Grand National aluminum block motor, ball bearing turbo, intercooler, methanol injection, etc ... he figured 550 - 650 hp. Camaro with tuned port small block, twin turbo's, intercooler
That TA with the GN driveline must have really stepped it up in the last couple of years, I watched him dyno 275hp at the rear wheels 3 years ago
& that was on a Dynojet.
... he just got it back from the shop a couple weeks ago. not sure if he dyno'ed it yet, but he say's it's got tons of power, revs pretty high. Super nice car ! ...I saw you're camaro go at race city a couple/ 3 weeks a go... fast... !!!
Yup, it goes pretty good, LOL.
Going to have a second car out there in 3-4 weeks, I'll be driving it at first & then the GF will take over as soon as I'm sure it'll track straight & clean.
...from what i saw, it goes like greased lightning, but is'nt very loud, like you'd expect from a 10 sec car ! ... how's that ?
The Buick Grand National and Turbo T were the badest turbo car's from any usa company ever. The turbo's have been getting alot of talk in the last 5 years or so but the Buicks were kicking ass in the 80's. Here is a short movie of my car when it still had a v6 in it
Here are some pics of it now with a V8
this a friend of mine that races with me
I hope these pics work
"Droooooooool" ! ... cripes, 1970ss350, those are "bad azz" lookin cars. Any more pics / info on the motors, hp, and turbo's etc. What are the 1/4 mile time's, etc. How does the (intercooler ? ) mounted inside the interior of the top pic cool ?
my old V6 was 274 cubes and made 1350hp with one turbo. it ran 7:70's in the 1/4 mile @ mid to high 170 mph. Now the V8 is not tuned just right (as far as car and motor working together) to put down a good time yet. So far it's made 1500hp to the tires with the v8 and I have about 6 more psi to go and 5deg's of timing. I have had engine problems 4 or 5 times now and the new combo only has like 30 1/8 mile runs on it. It's been 5.0's in the 1/8 so far but should go 4.8's-4.9's in the 150 range. 1/4 mile not sure I race all 1/8 same as the V6 it's just once or twice I will run it out the back door but have never tuned the car to run all 1/4 mile stuff. I would think the v8 shoould run in the 180's around 7.4's -.5's .
The intercooler is inside to get the weight off the nose
here are some more pics of cars that run with me
this is mine
Any more youtube video or pic's ? ...awesome !
