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.

1976 Chevy Vega Kammback
Here's a rare treat! The 1975 Chevrolet Vega Kammback! Only 53,012 miles on
this thing! It boasts a 70hp 2.3L in-line 4 cylinder and a 3 speed
automatic transmission. It's a rear wheel drive car that is perfect for a
V8 swap! It also has disc brakes, bucket seats, fold down rear seats, a
roof rack, and a forward tilting hood. The car is very straight, starts
and drives good, and gets great gas mileage!
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
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! Call, click or visit

1975 Chevy Cosworth Vega Blk Lakel090312
John DeLorean at work again! Cosworth helped design the twin cam head, and
the block was slightly smaller (122 c.i.) than the stock block for Vega
(140 c.i.). The car was made for the 1975 and 1976 model years. It was a
first for electronic fuel injection for Chevy...and got good reviews for
balanced performance. The car produced around 140 h.p. but a prototype
produced 170 h.p. with twin carbs. The total production for two years was
3508. Probably the Achilles heel of the car was rust...Vegas were known
