Little project I have been working on.

This is the owners car of the shop I do freelance work for. Its a 70 Camaro with a small block with twins. I am in the process of bringing the 4" charge pipes through the firewall into the back seat to the air to water intercooler and back to the motor. The project is only as far as you see here because its a back burner car. I have to finish a single turbo mustang a build a turbo Pacer before I can get back on the Camaro.

This car will go in the 8's all day through the mufflers. It makes 4 digit power.






I will update it when I get back at it.

I always like your pictures!

They bring back memories of a past life.
I am glad that I had the opportunity to build that kind of stuff but I don't miss it at all.

That and I discovered that there really is such a thing as "To Much Power", it is fun for a while and then... it just becomes ordinary. I mean having 700+BHP (Corrected) under the hood lets you get into trouble to be sure, but it also lets you power out of trouble, rather then drive out... I guarantee that my driving skills are much improved since I left that arena. That and on the street shutting down a 500-hp ride with 1/5th the power will paste a grin on your face! And if you lose? WTF you didn't have a chance anyway... Right?


Please keep posting pictures of your work, it's fun to see what is going on in an area that I don't play in anymore.

The instant that "you" can not connect your power to the ground...

Or perhaps when it hooks up so good that it either jumps 2 feet straight up in the air or flips over backwards
