Chevy Vega engine Turbocharged

This is a schnieder cammed,ported Vega engine on 12 PSI Boost. It uses a Corvair Corsa turbo in a "draw through" design. The rubber hose you see expanding and contracting is just a radiator hose we used to fire it up. That is being replaced with hard tubing. The nasty idle is the cam..I am going to have to run it at about 1000 rmp idle. Boost comes on at 1200rpm. Any questions,just email me. I have been keeping Vega engines in vegas for years.

Auto Mechanics: Water Cooled Engines: "Water Boy" 1936 Chevrolet 11min
more at http://auto-parts.quickfound.net/ "A DRAMATIZATION OF THE COOLING SYSTEM OF THE AUTOMOBILE, SHOWING HOW THE WATER CIRCULATES AROUND THE CYLINDERS, COOLING THEM AND IN TURN BEING COOLED BY THE AIR DRAWN IN THROUGH THE RADIATOR." Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine_cooling ...Cars and trucks using direct air cooling (without an intermediate liquid) were built over a long period from the very beginning and ending with a small and generally unrecognized technical change. Before World War II, water-cooled cars and trucks routinely overheated while climbing mountain roads, creating geysers of boiling cooling water. This was considered normal, and at the time, most noted mountain roads had auto repair shops to minister to overheating engines.... ... The subject of boiling engines was addressed, researched, and a solution found. Previous radiators and engine blocks were properly designed and survived durability tests, but used water pumps with a leaky graphite-lubricated "rope" seal (gland) on the pump shaft. The seal was inherited from steam engines, where water loss is accepted, since steam engines already expend large volumes of water. Because the pump seal leaked mainly when the pump was running and the engine was hot, the water loss evaporated inconspicuously, leaving at best a small rusty trace when the engine stopped and cooled, thereby not revealing significant water loss. Automobile radiators (or heat exchangers) have an outlet that feeds cooled water to the engine and the engine has an outlet that feeds heated water to the top of the radiator. Water circulation is aided by a rotary pump that has only a slight effect, having to work over such a wide range of speeds that its impeller has only a minimal effect as a pump. While running, the leaking pump seal drained cooling water to a level where the pump could no longer return water to the top of the radiator, so water circulation ceased and water in the engine boiled. However, since water loss led to overheat and further water loss from boil-over, the original water loss was hidden. After isolating the pump problem, cars and trucks built for the war effort (no civilian cars were built during that time) were equipped with carbon-seal water pumps that did not leak and caused no more geysers. Meanwhile, air cooling advanced in memory of boiling engines... even though boil-over was no longer a common problem. Air-cooled engines became popular throughout Europe. After the war, Volkswagen advertised in the USA as not boiling over, even though new water-cooled cars no longer boiled over, but these cars sold well, and without question. But as air quality awareness rose in the 1960s, and laws governing Exhaust emissions were passed, unleaded gas replaced leaded gas and leaner fuel mixtures became the norm. These reductions in the cooling effects of both the lead and the formerly rich fuel mixture, led to overheating in the air-cooled engines. Valve failures and other engine damage was the result. Volkswagen responded by abandoning their (flat) horizontally opposed air-cooled engines, while Subaru took a different course and chose liquid-cooling for their (flat) engines. Today practically no air-cooled automotive engines are built, air cooling being fraught with manufacturing expense and maintenance problems. Motorcycles had an additional problem in that a water leak presented a greater threat to reliability, their engines having small cooling water volume, so they were loath to change; today most larger motorcycles are water-cooled with many relying on convection circulation with no pump...

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.

132702 / 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7ls72l8 This all original 1975 Cosworth is one of 2,061 cars produced for the '75 model year, has only 291 actual miles, and has all of the rare and difficult to find Cosworth Vega parts right where the factory installed them. Assembled at GMs historic Lordstown, Ohio manufacturing facility, and finished in standard issue 1975 Cosworth Vega code 19 black acrylic lacquer, CV number 1094 is every bit as clean today as when it left the showroom floor. The car has remained in all original, non-repaired condition thanks in small part to GMs anti-rust improvements, and in large part to immaculate maintenance and care given by loving owners throughout its life. Today, it features an old school factory appeal that you just can't find in its restored peers. With 110 horsepower and a 6,500 RPM redline, the Cosworth Vega was one of the hottest performing cars available in 1975 and featured a hand-built mill from GM's Tonawanda engine plant that was individually signed by its builder on a sticker that occupies the cam cover. Measuring in at 122 cubic inches, and wearing a correct partial VIN of 40392, this Vegas DOHC inline-four features sturdy forged aluminum pistons, a heat-treated forged steel crankshaft and forged connecting rods that both reveal the engines racing ancestry and assure high performance durability. To meet ever increasing US emissions standards, a custom designed stainless steel Exhaust header and Bendix electronic fuel injection with pulse-time manifold injection, four injector valves, an electronic control unit (ECU), five independent sensors and two fuel pumps were installed. Thanks to this revolutionary engine, the Vega was the first Chevrolet car to feature electronic fuel injection which warranted an HEI distributor for increased spark and a heavy duty radiator for increased cooling. At the bottom of this sophisticated Chevrolet, an original Saginaw 4-speed manual transmission, which wears a correct 338835 casting number and a correct 15U240392 partial VIN, sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end that's packed full of stout 3.73 gears. Holding that sports car drivetrain off the ground is an original F41 heavy duty suspension which includes a 'torque arm' rear end for optimum rear axle power control, larger rear stabilizer bars, Vega GT springs and shocks, provisions for the Vega's "fast Steer" option and front disc brakes. At the center of the car, an original single pipe Exhaust system snakes spent gases along the floorpan to a factory replacement muffler which barks an exotic four cylinder growl through two polished stainless tips. And at the corners of the car, 13 inch British-made, gold-painted cast aluminum wheels spin correct BR70-13 Goodyear Custom Steelgard Radials around chrome lug nuts and satin finished Chevrolet center caps. Take a look inside this pristine Cosworth Vega and you'll find the typical all business/no compromises black interior that these cars have built a reputation for. The custom bucket seats, which are completely fresh and display no signs of wear at all, nicely complement a 100% straight and crack-free dash. Inside that dash, an engine-turned gold bezel houses a Cosworth exclusive 8,000 RPM tachometer between a 120 MPH speedometer, gauges for the engines vitals and a gold-plated plaque which is branded with the cars 1094 build sequence number. Below those gauges, a correct radio delete sits next to the cars original heater/defroster; and in front of those gauges, a familiar black steering wheel is centered behind a blue Cosworth Vega horn button emblem. At the floor, the booted shifter for the Borg Warner T10 transmission springs up from like-new black carpet which is protected by color-keyed floor mats. And at the roof, the cars original mouse fur headliner stretches tightly around vinyl sun visors and a bright courtesy lamp. The door panels, which look as good as new, are decorated with attractive stainless trim and chrome handles for both the doors and windows. And the hatch, which is lined with the same black carpet as the floor boards, appears to have never been used. If you're a serious collector who's been searching for something rare and unique, here's your opportunity to own one of the nicest and most underappreciated cars on the planet!
