  • Zip Van With 3.8 Pontiac GTP Supercharged Engine


    Says it has 4 wheel disc brakes. That's probably a good thing with that engine

          This young guy is getting 374 hp at the wheels with a 3.8 supercharged Buick Regal. Put together a pretty good video (some movie clips with language - just fast forward through that part...) but just goes to show that car modifying is far from disappearing...

              Well,
              I have a straight and complete Arizona Zip Van and a (separate) legit JTS R2 with a Powershift that I will sell cheap to fund 'The Black Car'...

                You are just teasing with the 'puzzled' smiley, right? Because I know we definitely discussed why I passed on it.

                    I love sleepers! I have a 1983 Mustang GT thats kinda a sleeper. It looks totally stock, even the engine has the original ram air system and the factory valve covers so when the hood is open it looks original at first glance. In stock form I believe the car made 180 hp which isnt much compared to the 360 hp it pushes now. What I like most is the engine is naturally aspirated and no NOS either (although it is setup for it), just straight engine. Ive raced against vettes, Camaros, a 71 Cuda, other Mustangs and won.
                    Now, I would like to build another. Maybe Ill turbo charge the Hawk or dump a 3.8 turbo in my Cavalier..
