Electric SuperChargers Mythbusted
Will you make power with an eBay Supercharger? In this episode Marty and Moog install a system to see if the claims on the box actually turn into real world power. But they need a new car to work on and only have $100 to spend...

Turbo TPI Iroc - Modded ZZ3 350 13 psi - First day at drag strip runs 7.71 at 92.2 mph on radials
Best run of the day and it was on a 1.84 60 foot, so easily could have ran a 7.5x on sticky tires. I was just about the only person on regular radials today. Soon I need to get a bigger turbo and it should open the doors to some low 7's. All in all I'm pretty pleased although I had expected my mph to be closer to 94-95. Engine is a ZZ3 crate motor modded to forged internals. See my other vids for more specs
Datsun Megasquirt Turbo
First drive with the new fuel spark system. MS-II on an L28ET in a 76 280Z.
1989 Corvette Z51 TPI 268 XFI Comp Cam, Magnaflow idle and holeshot
My dad's 1989 6 speed Corvette. It had a bent rod, so I rebuilt it with .030 over forged flat tops, eagle rods(5.7) and a balanced rotating assembly with the stock dual mass flywheel. I put in a Comp 268xfi cam, stainless roller rockers, hardened pushrods, and new GM roller lifters. The car had 60cc Edelbrock heads so I lightly ported them and an Edelbrock Hi Flow base, matched up the accel runners and ported the stock plenum. Bolted on a 52mm throttle body, 24lb/hr design 3 injectors and Hooker headers with a Magnaflow Exhaust. Ordered a custom chip from PCMforLess. It's plenty fast for my dad- for now. Maybe add some Nitrous and drag radials and drop into the 11's.
