Turbo Dodge Caravan in the 1/4 mile
1989 dodge caravan turbo





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





Sleeper minivan beats riced Honda Civic on track
Because I get it a lot, yes, this was at PIR. Just shows that a sleeper car can still put a Honda in it's place. This Plymouth minivan was one of the fastest cars on the track finishing a quarter mile at 123.42 MPH. Definitely not an easy task! Either way, it's always fun to watch some fancy Honda get his ass handed to him on a platter.
