Roadster Shop co-owner Jeremy Gerber treats us to a test-drive and walk-around of this 1970 Camaro known as Split Second. At the heart of this build is a Nelson Racing Engines Street Warrior 7.0-liter motor with a pair of 73-millimeter Nelson turbochargers. Read More

Knowing that the SS version of the latest Chevrolet Camaro lineup is the most track worthy, we couldn’t help but ask ourselves, “How do we make it even better?” Before we could answer that question, the owner of the Circuit Board Camaro SS showed up and gave us an illustration.

December 23rd, 2021

This video can help put you on the right track for a low budget turbo build in most any type of vehicle. This case involves a 1999 GMC Sierra (Chevrolet Silverado) 1500 extended cab pickup.
