    The Nova seems more current in thinking. Recent cars have smaller turbo engines for emissions and economy, plus better handling with less weight in the nose. The old school way was more displacement and don't worry about the understeer!biggrin image Would anyone put a turbo 4 into a classic musclecar?wink image

    SEMA Nova 2.0T

    e12 LS7 V8

    e12 3.5L

    Gremlin 401-XR

    The 2ltr turbo motor in a light car like the Nova is ok scratchchin image ...but not in a true muscle car. My HHR SS has this engine and is faster then my '89 Vette and the HHR has more HP. 290 Vs 245.


    Anyone can restore a car, but it takes a real hotrodder to cut one up and make it cool.
