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.

1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun
in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is
always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or
actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily
recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl
sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality
was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad
reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank
and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car,
but the Vega was real junk.

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
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
