Dyno Nova Twin Turbo
This is another 417 car that spent some time on my Dyno. With the right fuel pump it made the top HP on the power tour! Mostly part throttle in these videos. You can spot the issue on the Dyno screen.

The old beater Fairmont is back and BAD. V8 swap plus a little more. If all goes well it'll end up on Pinks.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's 1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
