Dodge Caravan Turbocharged Drag Racing Racelegal.com 4-6-2012

Race your ride at qualcomm stadium at racelegal.com how about a dodge caravan turbocharged drag racing and very fast. Generation I Caravans used the Chrysler S platform, which was closely related to the K-cars, Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant. There were three trim levels on the Generation I Caravan: base, mainstream SE, and upscale LE. The Caravan was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1985. All trim levels were also available in a slightly longer body, called the Grand Caravan, which allowed significantly more cargo space behind the rear seat. Most of the interior trim, controls, and instrumentation were borrowed from the K-car, leading to a very "car-like" interior look and feel. Coupled with the lower floor that the front-wheel-drive design allowed, this helped to make the Caravan seem more like a large station wagon than a van, enticing many buyers who would not have otherwise been comfortable driving a van. The vans came equipped for seven passengers in three rows of seating, putting it between a typical twelve-passenger/four-row full-size van and a six-passenger/two-row large sedan. 2 bucket seats with attached armrests and open floor space between them in the front, a 2 person bench seat in the second row, and a 3 person bench seat in the back row. The two bench seats in the rear were independently removable, and the large 3 person bench could also be installed in the 2nd row location via a second set of attachment points on the van's floor, ordinarily hidden with snap-in plastic covers. This configuration allowed for conventional 5 person seating with a sizable cargo area in the rear. The latching mechanisms for the benches were very intuitive and easy to operate. The act of moving the seats, however, typically required 2 adults, and lifting them back into the van was a very awkward procedure. An 8-passenger model with a bench front seat accommodating a middle front passenger was offered in the SE trim level in 1985 only, and was not repeated due to poor sales. Safety features were typical of vans of the era, and consisted of 3-point seat belts for the front two passengers, with simple lap belts for the rear 5. The rear seats had no headrests, while front seats with non-adjustable headrests came only on the LE and in conjunction with vinyl upholstery on the SE. Base models and cloth-trimmed SEs did without front headrests which were not mandated due to the van's "light truck" legal status. Side-impact reinforcements were, and were at all seating positions front and rear. Airbags or ABS were not available. Access to the rear rows of seating was by a large sliding door on the passenger side. The sliding door allowed easier access in a confined suburban garage, compared to the double doors found on most full-size vans of the era. Because only one sliding door was offered, the smaller 2nd row bench seat was installed off center, shifted to the drivers side of the van, to allow easy passenger access to the 3rd row seat. The cargo area behind the rear seat was very limited on the standard short body model, however, the seat could be adjusted forward in 2 increments, the first of which removed roughly 6 inches (150 mm) of legroom from the back row passengers, and the second of which would push the bench all the way to the back of the 2nd row, making the seats unusable. The seatback of the rear bench could also be folded forward, providing a flat cargo shelf. The smaller 2nd row bench was not adjustable, nor foldable; it could only be removed entirely. Cargo access to the rear was via a hatchback, similar to the one on the K-Car station wagons. The hatch was hinged at the top and held open by gas struts, and it was the source of much confusion among Caravan owners. It could only be released by the key, or by a button on the driver's control panel; it did not have a traditional door handle. Once the hatch had been "popped", the key could be removed, and the hatch lifted by a handhold above the license plate holder. However, many owners did not identify the handhold area, and instead used the turned key as a handle to lift the hatch, resulting in many broken keys.

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

Trims: Base, SE, LE Competitors: Ford Windstar, Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Chevrolet Venture What I have to say about the 1999 Caravan: No wonder why it was the most popular minivan about 20 years ago, it's list of many different configurations and aggressive styling made it a top seller and contender in the minivan market. It's ability to be the most fun to drive minivan compared to other minivans also made it sell. The seats were really comfortable even for being cloth, this van is excellent for hauling around a family. If you need way more room step up to the Grand Caravan. This minivan isn't perfect though, less than stellar reliability was an issue and the room for the third row bench seat is very cramped in the Caravan, like I said I would step up to a Grand Caravan. Models Range from the Base Model to the mid level equipped SE and to the top level LE. All in all great Minivan a new model should be introduced in 2001.
