JJ Da Boss Zip Tie Chevy II Gets ProCharger Upgrade

April 22nd, 2021

Almost anyone who follows (amateur) drag racing will recognize the Zip Tie Chevrolet owned and operated by JJ Da Boss of the Memphis Street Outlaws group. Zip Tie became an instant fan favorite when JJ left the street during a race and took a brief detour on the sidewalk. In typical Boss fashion, JJ carried out the harrowing maneuver as if sidewalk surfing was a daily activity. Once the episode of Street Outlaws aired, JJ and Zip Tie were drag racing celebrities.

That brings us to the video. Zip Tie – like most of the Memphis Street Outlaws’ rides – was a nitrous car. Looking to get away from the stress that nitrous puts on an engine, JJ is in the process of converting his extensive fleet of No Prep/Street Racers over to ProCharged power adders. This clip delivers a first glance at the new mods and a taste of what the improved Zip Tie can do when the rubber meets the road.

Zip tie is now powered by a big block HEMI racing engine with a 3.0-liter ProCharger mounted out front. The new transmission is courtesy of Rossler.

To quote JJ Da Boss, “If you think this b*tch was bad before, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
