unknown # of 4 spd made
unknown # of Early 71' 401's made
this car started life as a base model rs,nothing except power locks,ac and power trunk,it has been converted over to a full 1LE suspension and brake swap,with added stb and wonderbar.also swaped over were 16 inch iroc rims,iroc gauge cluster with 145 mph speedo,iroc tailights and steering wheel
the entire turbo system and some other parts like the stainless turbo headers/custom intake manifold etc were all hand made by me. so far the car is about 2 years in the making,and still a long way off from being done.
the last motor put down 412 hp @ 18 psi,the new motor going in in the next week or so has heads that flow around 40-50 cfm better then the old heads,and a more aggressive turbo cam,not to mention the addition of a much larger turbocharger,and direct port ethanol injection system, looking to put down around 550 hp,and put the car into the low 11's/high 10's
