Shelby Dodge Tribute
This is a short video dedicated to the forgotten Shelby cars and their turbocharged Mopar siblings.
The photos were taken by me at the annual SDAC convention, that was held in
Chicagoland this year.

Note: The beginning dialogue is Shelby talking about a Supercharged
Charger; I couldn't seem to find some useable audio that pertained to the
use of the turbochargers in the numbered
cars that followed... But it still has its merits.
Thanks for watching!
This is a tribute video I made about the 1980's turbo Dodges. The video is also under my
StreetFire account (85CharGLHS) if you'd rather watch it there. I hope you

How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.
GLH Turbo vs. Mustang LX 5.0 and Golf GTI
1985 Dodge Omni GLH turbo racing a Ford
Mustang LX 5.0L and a
Volkwagen Golf GTi. The race with the Mustang is one of my favourites
because the the guy in the Mustang challenged me to a race. He
didn't believe that the 2.2 turbo's were
really that fast. I'm not sure if you can see it or not but I was taping
the brakes before the end of the 1/4 mile just to rub a little salt into
the fresh wound.
The only modifications to my GLH turbo
at the time was the Mopar Performance computer and I believe that I had a
K&N drop in replacement filter. Tires were Michelin XGTV's in a 205/50/15.
The video was shot in 1997 with an 8mm Sanyo Camcorder.
