Blown Pro Street Nova
Saw this amazing nova at the 2010 Goodguys @ the Puyallup Fairgrounds in Washington
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown. I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why, I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
Nova's blown 383
This is a blown 383 (706 hp) in a '67 Chevy Nova. This little video was taken the first time it was cranked. Still not drivable yet, because it's in the process of being tubbed right now. Gonna be a blast!!
UPDATE AS OF 11-14-07: All chrome, windshields, interior, etc. has been stripped and the car is in the paint shop. We should have it back soon and then it's on to upholstery shop. I took a couple pics of it yesterday and it's lookin' good. It's a metallic tangerine/orange candy. GRAB YOUR SUNGLASSES !!
My excuse for the picture quality of the video is that I had a new digital camera and didn't know much about how to work it yet.
