check out these very fast chevrolet nova on the 1/8 mile at racelegal.com drag strip. The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova is a compact automobile manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors produced in four generations for the 1962 through 1979 model years. Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968. The Chevy II nameplate was dropped, Nova becoming the nameplate for the 1969 through 1979 models. Built on the X-body platform, the Nova was replaced by the 1980 Chevrolet Citation introduced in the spring of 1979. For 1974, The 1974 Chevrolet Nova got larger parking lights and new bow-tie grille emblems, as well as modified bumpers that added two inches to length and helped cushion minor impacts. The Powerglide was replaced by a lightweight version of the three-speed turbo-Hydramatic 350 ( THM 250 ) already offered with the 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8, which was the only V8 offered for 1974. Nova sales continued the surge they had enjoyed since 1972 and approached 400,000 cars for 1974. Six-cylinder Novas were the fastest gainers, as sales of V-8 Novas declined. These were the years of the first energy crisis as Middle Eastern countries cut back on oil exports. After waiting for hours in gas lines and fretting about the prospect of fuel rationing, thrifty compacts looked pretty good to plenty of Americans. Nova fit the bill. The 'Spirit of America' Nova was introduced in 1974. In anticipation of the US bicentennial in 1976, the limited edition Nova Coupes were painted white and featured blue and red accent stripes as well as red and blue interior carpets and fabrics. Oldsmobile and Buick entered the compact car market; both the Apollo and Omega debuted, using the same bodystyles from the Nova lineup. Additional options were included on these Nova-like models, such as lighting under the dashboard and in the glove compartment. Pontiac's final GTO of this era was based on a facelifted 1974 Ventura coupe, itself based on the Nova, but fitted with a shaker hoodscoop from the Trans Am.

Tested: FAST'S EZ-EFI 2.0 is Dyno and Track Tested on a 600 HP Chevy Nova
The new FAST EZ-EFI 2 system boasts many improvements and new features over the first-generation model EZ-EFI. The kit is still designed not only to ease the anxiety of tuning an electronic fuel injection system but also to offer potential for more power. The new ECU is more powerful and features a sleek appearance with new L-E-D indicator lights for on-board diagnostics. It can control fuel to either first- or second-generation EZ-EFI throttle bodies, or the user can upgrade to multi-port fuel injection. With optional equipment, the ECU can also control the ignition timing. With a full-color touchscreen, EZ EFI 2 looks better, performs better, and can support up to 1,000 horsepower. We tested a full installation on a 600+ HP 1970 Nova.
