    Default 1953 Chevy Belair

    My buddy's rig in Brazil.

    Running 18 psi of boost on ethanol, with 24 degrees of total timming.
    The car dynoed 360hp on 11psi of boost.
    The way it acelerates with 18 psi of boost, I would estimate at least 400 hp.
    I am running a 3.90 welded rear end with 275/60/15.
    You will notice I had to let go the gas for a split of a sec on second gear, that was to bring the car back to tragetory and hit the gas strong on 3rd and let go the gas on 4th gear. I shifted 2nd and 3rd @ 6000 rpm, and just hit the 4th gear till 4000rpm, that should be something around 110mph, I figured that was enougth to test the car on the street.




    His old setup..

    Having a turbo is a creates a vicious cycle.

    Starts out most times something like this: "I am only going to boost a little bit."

    Then before you know it you have been threw a few sets of pistons, if you're lucky, and a revamped fuel and ignition system.

    Then before you know it you are talking about race gas and 30 psi of boost.

    I heard the story a million times and have seen many buddies repeatedly blow their engine and money.

    I just want a small block and a 7 psi of boost blower and I would be happy.

    My boy Henrique has a badazz wagon though!

    That car is beautiful.
