In this week is a C5 Corvette getting ready to accept a brand new Magnuson supercharger. In the tear down phase as shown here; but looking forward to reassembly and making some respectable numbers soon.
Cobras always turn heads; in this great blue and white combo it really brings out the curves. It is a replica; however it is a very accurate one even down to the period correct gauges. Its got a modern, warmed up 5.0 powerplant with an electronic engine management system with a 5-speed manual behind it. Awaiting a Stage II clutch and upgraded flywheel.
In came this very rare factory D-Dart; which was a little know go-fast package right from Dodge.The owner of this one has had it since brand new in 1965! It has fully redone engine; and was converted to a dual carb setup – but when they were rebuilt by another individual; the jets and calibrations were all completely off – making this car run so rich it was smoking even at idle. We have the dual 4’s calibrated and running substantially better now.
A project we just took in is this 2007 Ford Mustang GT that the customer is having us install a Whipple supercharger on. We are currently acquiring the rest of the pieces to the build. Here you can see pics of the blower, new spark plugs, and higher flow fuel injectors. Stay tuned for the completion.
Recently finishing restoration; this beautiful ’69 Camaro came to us with issues involving hot starting. Ice cold it fired right up like a brand new car. Investigating the cause we found there was no spacer between the intake and carb; allowing the heat to transfer directly to the carb and essentially boiling the fuel. Some insulated lines and a spacer will have this beauty ready for the cruise in season.
If you are going to install a supercharger or turbocharger on your vehicle; you need more fuel. Kenne Bell makes a reliable boost a pump that can be easily mounted in an out of sight location and once properly set may never need to be adjusted or fussed with again; just quietly working away in the background. This one was installed behind a trunk trim panel in an ’07 Mustang.
