Turbo Cutlass Tears Up the Oklahoma City Street Car Takeover

October 27th, 2015

CuttyIf you haven’t seen this sliver, Hurst edition, 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass (affectionately dubbed “The Cutty”) blistering the 1/4-mile over the past six-months, then you must have your head under a rock. After a mishap last season that took him out of the running in the Street Outlaws championship and a revamp that saw the car go from nitrous to a turbocharger, Cutty owner/operator Andrade revealed (at the beginning of the 2015 season) that his Olds is making around 1,400hp and 1,190 lb.-ft. of torque.

Under the hood, a Texas Speed built (LS based) 408-cubic inch engine with Wiseco internals and a set of PRC225 cylinder heads, is force fed by a massive 94-millimeter Forced Inductions turbocharger.  Mike Murillo handles the tuning on the new turbocharged power plant and a lightweight GlassTek front clip (from American Street Rods) helps to lighten the load on those close heads up races.
