I kind of want to hate this car. It has all the trademarks of a loathesome redneck-sets-upon-import-with-cubic-inches project: bad flames, bad wheels, NASCAR decals and ridiculous power claims. But really, once that engine bay opens up, it’s clear these guys aren’t f&*$ing around (much). Additionally, there’s a screen shot of it a dyno curve running right off the top of a 1,000hp graph. Nothing on the torque curve adds up to the claimed 2,200hp, but there’s no doubt this setup (four snails on a Dart 565ci block) is capable of roasting those Goodyear all-seasons to nothing in a glorious, whistling burnout. To resist is to WHARRGARBL.
We’d tweak the stance, get some proper wheels and tires (not sure what constitutes “proper” here…), and find some way to hide that plumbing under the hood for greater sleeper effect. Your cageless arse would be thrown off the drag strip after one 11 second pass, but the sleeper effect would be well worth it. Also, bonus points to the eBayer for including all the relevant info in a sort of stream-of-consciousness list:
tested with open wastegates and closed/boost starts at 2800rpm/in a loaded state.
rear axle 373/first gear 308/700r4 tci/straight up boost. dyno run off. chained it down.
