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.
