Turbo Maverick Sleeper Outruns Drag Car
Josh Dillon's '73 Maverick Grabber doesn't look like it should run mid 6's
in the eighth mile, but it does! And outruns lots of full on drag cars.
Josh has driven this car on several road trips, and constantly beats on it.
The car looks rough, and even sounds sort of rough, but has a 75mm turbo that makes all the difference. On this
pass, the car made 12 pounds of Boost and runs a 6.62 at 105 miles per hour in
the eighth mile. The rough exterior and stock steel wheels make this
Maverick a killer sleeper!
The car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock block and stock crank. The
heads are stock castings that Josh ported at home. turbo is a Borg Warner S475, and Josh built every
piece of the turbo setup on a budget.
Transmission is a C6 automatic with stock hard parts and a Dacco torque
converter. Rear end is still the stock 8-inch!!!!

Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
