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.
For more information on these 80's pocket rockets head over to www.turbo-mopar.com
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!
SLANT 6 Mopar or No Car!
Mopars and very attractive women.....Mopars Kicking ASS! What more can you ask for?!
If you like what you hear, come and visit me at CDBaby! In case anyone is curious, yes, I've owned tons of Mopar products! There is a SRT4 in my driveway right now. I've had Coronet R/T's, Challenger RT, Demon's, 300's, SRT8's, I love em all! And I have no problem with other cool Musclecars. I even own a Buick with a V6 that is fairly quick......
However....I loves me Mother Mopar!
2007 Charger srt8 Super Bee Vs 5.0 Mustang
Super Bee vs 5.0, he got me off the line but I think his engine was a little off or something because I ended up smoking him in the end and he never even broke 90 mph.
How NOT to remove your engine.

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.
