Turbo Maverick Sleeper Outruns Drag Car
Josh Dillon's '73 Maverick Grabber doesn't look like it should run mid 6's
in the eighth mile, but it does! And outruns lots of full on drag cars.
Josh has driven this car on several road trips, and constantly beats on it.
The car looks rough, and even sounds sort of rough, but has a 75mm turbo that makes all the difference. On this
pass, the car made 12 pounds of Boost and runs a 6.62 at 105 miles per hour in
the eighth mile. The rough exterior and stock steel wheels make this
Maverick a killer sleeper!
The car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock block and stock crank. The
heads are stock castings that Josh ported at home. turbo is a Borg Warner S475, and Josh built every
piece of the turbo setup on a budget.
Transmission is a C6 automatic with stock hard parts and a Dacco torque
converter. Rear end is still the stock 8-inch!!!!
