1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan at MRP, firstname.lastname@example.org racing against a Toyota pickup with a 1J swap.
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3620 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head. 27 psi, email@example.com to my friends 90's Toyota pickup with a 1J swap, around 450 whp, which ran a firstname.lastname@example.org. Had trouble making Boost at the line all night, this was our 2nd race. First race, I blew the Map line off, ran a 13.5@81 to his 13.4@113ish.
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
Dynoing my Turbo Dodge Caravan
This motor has 250k miles on it, it's done. I wanted to get a baseline Dyno of what it was making when I pulled it out, to compare to the turbo DOHC 2.0 I'll be putting in it's place.
1st pull was 5psi, 2nd was 10psi, 3rd was 14psi.

Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3620 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head.
Playing at the Street Legals, just fixed the trans, no tuning, so trying to tune tonight. Ran a 14.0@96 mph.
Viper guy was NOT happy, almost got to race him again but he dodged the bullet. Later on, wouldn't even look at my direction, lol.
1987 Toyota Pick-up Turbo (cold start)
This is my 87' Toyota Pick-up 4 cylinder turbo.... Super Rare. Fully Restored and on 33x12.50 Mud Terrain Tires and 17 inch Rims. This is my 2nd Video. The 1st video was when I first got it back in April 2010, this is an update 1 year later. The engine is making a squeaking noise because its a cold start. It goes away when the engine warms up. Tell be what you think. :)
1987 Toyota Pick-up EFI with a Turbo
This is my 1987 Toyota Pick-up EFI with a turbo, this is a rare truck there is not very many out there anymore. What makes it it rare is that it has a Manual transmisson which most of them have an automatic transmisson, and also has a turbo.
