That is the biggest turbo I've ever seen. That must have come off a really big boat.

I used to have a pic of a powerstroke Ford set up like that Camaro and now I can't find it

I think that Camaro is Sprio Papst's. He has that one and a single turboed 69.. just beautiful cars. He runs them in Super Street Outlaw. I think he's somewhere in the 6's and over 200 mph.


YouTube - spiro pappas


I took a tour of a natural gas transfer station some years ago and the turboes they had there were the size of a small car.... not to mention the size of the two stroke natural gas powered engines.

Engine set up on OP "TURBO" engine does not look right.

Turbos are exhaust driven and are being fed from the right bank only.

Each bank should feed one turbo only and the pipes conbined after the turbo to flow directly into the air intake what ever it's supposed to be. Does not show any connection or completion.

These two turbos are way toooo big for that size engine.

Proper size turbos for the engine would depend on the cyls output of exhaust gas to create boost.

Exhaust pipes are too big for what exhaust gas that size engine would put out.

With that little exhaust gas the impellers would not reach any RPM to create boost.

Pipe from turbo to intake? on left bank and not to the air intake Flow custom box.

No sign of fuel injection or Carbs.

Lot of weight on the front end for those street tires.

Engine shows thought but not complete to function with those two large TURBOS.

A 18 wheeler diesel has a turbo (one) that is 1/2 the size of the ones shown in the picture for maximum 10 lbs of boost with a waste gate.

Doubt that it will ever get any boost. Steve

Exhaust pressure enters through the turbine housing inlet on the bottom at where the flange meets the exhaust manifold, not the rear, that's called a downpipe.

Each bank should feed one turbo only and the pipes conbined after the turbo to flow directly into the air intake what ever it's supposed to be. Does not show any connection or completion.

That's called the hot side charge pipe, they're flowing into a water to air heat exchanger located in the passenger compartment.

These two turbos are way toooo big for that size engine.

That engine must be at least 500CID, plenty of CFM generated to spool those bad boys.

Proper size turbos for the engine would depend on the cyls output of exhaust gas to create boost.

Proper size is a relative term, this application is quite apparent for drag racing thus necessitating a peak performance top end powerhouse.


Exhaust pipes are too big for what exhaust gas that size engine would put out.

A single common downpipe that appears to be 6-7" diameter is not overkill for a pair of what appears to be GT-55s, the less restriction the better.


With that little exhaust gas the impellers would not reach any RPM to create boost.

Plenty of displacement, to generate the necessary CFM, as per above.

Pipe from turbo to intake? on left bank and not to the air intake Flow custom box.

See above.

No sign of fuel injection or Carbs.

There are fuel rails on each side of the plenum above the intake runners. Judging from the still packaged radiator lying against the wheel, missing doors, front body panels, ignition components, and being in a shop, I think this car is not yet complete.

Lot of weight on the front end for those street tires.

Those are 15x3-4 wheels, not well suited for street driving period, pretty sure this car is not being built to go grocery shopping.

I wasn't aware Peterbuilt, Mack, Volvo, Mercedes, and ERF were built to using identical F/I specifications.

Doubt that it will ever get any boost.

Pro Line Racing | Customers Updates (http://www.prolineraceengines.com/updates.html - broken link)

Pro Line Racing is one of many companies dedicated to preparing cars much similar as the black Camaro demonstrates. With majority of Pro Line's customers achieving mid 4 second 1/8th mile and sub 7 second 1/4 mile ETs with 200mph+ trap speeds, I imagine they'll get all the boost needed.

MONSTER SNAILS! ACK!

LOL! Love to hear the whistle when/if that motor ever fired up.

Could this be an awesome PhotoShop job?

What's with the Ford turbo diesels being so noisy, compared to my Cummins turbo diesel? Hmmmmm....

Sorry Steve,
Turbo's in a race application vs a street car are completely different. Not doubting your knowledge .. just the knowledge on this particular subject. Here is a link to the car and some of the details.

The new Spiro Pappas Camaro... the most insane Camaro ever? Nick Scavo

Just warming the motor up on the dyno..with only 2 lbs of boost it made 1000hp... thier goal with 22lbs of boost is 2800hp...
