1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan at the Mission street legals racing an STi, Oct 14/11.

Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head. At the last Street Legals of the year, trying to run a 12 again but she's not cooperating, had computer issues all week and died this morning, managed to get her fixed but was cutting out as you can hear. Would die at the line then catch, 2.4 60 ft and ran a shitty 14.1 to his 13.7. Figured out my rev limiter was only set at 6K, not sure how when I set them to 8K. Never got a chance to go back out, dew set in and game over. Has been a frustrating year to say the least, sigh, here's hoping 2012 will be kinder.

The Junkyard runs 11.99@117 on a 140hp $90 Dodge Caravan motor from the junkyard. First pass.
Add turbo system to a motor that makes 140hp at the crankshaft. E85 fuel. PT6765 turbo. 16 pounds of Boost. stock heads, stock cams, stock headgasket, stock shortblock, stock naturally aspirated ECU. No tune. Rising Rate regulator for fuel and Methanol injection. Car was finished the night before racing and the junkyard water pump locked up on the freeway and had to be changed in the Home Depot Parking lot so we could make it to the race track. Got booted because the junk motor had a camshaft seal oil leak. Instead of fixing the oil leak. I built an oil catch pan (required for 11 second cars at our track in the next race season anyways) so i would not have to repair the oil leak. I was not going to spend money fixing this cheap junk motor. Great Depression Racing





7 second minivan - no kidding
This plain looking Dodge Caravan pulled up at the local drag strip tonight and we all laughed - but we didn't laugh for long!
