Chris' 1986 GLHS L4 Bodies page

Owner: Angelo Taylor
Stats: The Matchbox! - 11.89 @ 118 mph
Here's the real animal...You can see the remote oil filter, the NOS lines, the old style Mopar intercooler, the ram air tubing going from left of radiator to throttle body, & the original Turbo I motor with it's original head. Not so noticable is the J E forged pistons that came from Forward Motion. The car still has it's original radio to boot! Transaxle is none other than an automatic - set to shift at 5600 rpm when flat out. Engine monitoring is via a custom set of Autometer gauges to the right of the dash-to-floor console. Check out the following victories: NHRA Track Class Points Champion: 1985, 86, 87, 88, 89, 91, 92, 92, 93, and 96. (In 1992 I was the track champ at two tracks in two classes)
