After a few weeks of chasing an electrical demon, we were finally able to get the car stable enough to take it out and play. The car is a 1985 Shelby Charger with an upgraded A555 Transaxle. 10 pounds of Boost. Special thanks go to the guys at turbododge.com and a special thanks to NAJ from turbododge.com for all the help.
Dodge Shelby Charger Rally Video
We rally a 86' Shelby Charger turbo that
we bought for 5 hay bails. This is the *first gen* charger before we
jumped it, cut the roof off, removed all the windows and re-painted it. Go

Omni GLH TII first drive
This is the first time I've gotten to drive it since the engine swap and
startup. Engine is a from a 1988 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z. Upgraded to a 2.5"
swingvalve housing. 3" turbo back Exhaust. Nothing vacuum wise hooked up so
computer doesn't run the Boost. Just
basic engine running.
This is a tribute video I made about the 1980's turbo Dodges. The video is also under my
StreetFire account (85CharGLHS) if you'd rather watch it there. I hope you

GLHS Shelby Charger #742 of 1000 made
I drove this car today, and let me tell you, this is one of the most
under-rated cars every made. What a blast it was winding 2nd and 3rd gear
out! Make you wonder why they only made 1000.
