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.
Home built electric utility vehicle update
Its the nerdiest thing I have ever built but its for taking to the campgrounds with the wife because we are too lazy to walk everywhere. If it being electric helps the enviornment one bit let it be known that I will sneak up and run over a spotted owl if I ever see one.
I have seats and a cargo box that mounts on the vehicle and the front will tinned up in aluminum before it gets painted
1975 Vega walk around and 57 Chevy stock car
This is a walk around of one of my Vegas. It no longer has the cragar wheels because I could not get new tires for them..sadly they had to go.I installed a set of Chrome Spider rims and 205 60 13 Yokahama tires. I have since blacked out the grill and headlight bezels and installed a three piece rear spoiler. This car is now for sale. I want $3200.00 for it.
The 57 Chevy stock car is for sale turn key for 10K

1972 Vega Wagon 1st Drive
Just got my 1972 Vega Wagon going after a lot of work. Currently running open headers. It has a small block 350 and a TH350 Transmission. 12-bolt rear-end and 5 lug front end conversion.
1974 Chevy Vega Hatchback Wht
In remarkable condition! Surprisingly, it has A/C too...it has escaped the rust demons. The engine on these cars gave the car a bad start...most problems were corrected by 1974 except the tendency to rust badly. The direct competition would be the Ford Pinto.
