Default Boosted Engine Pictures.

We need to have a thread showing Pictures of the Boosted Engines that have worked on in the past or are currently working on. This can be Turbocharged or Supercharged Engines: (Roots, Paxton, Procharger, or Vortech belt driven or crank driven Superchargers).

I know that Brian H. has some cool pictures of both his Belt driven Procharger engine or his Crank Driven Procharger engine (car runs 7.50s).

Then we have the Boss Bird engine. Tom McQueen has both Pontiac and Chrysler Boosted engines he is playing with.

Post them up. (this does not need to be just Bodies vehicles/Pontiac Engines as some have fast Boosted cars or even Jeeps from other brands.)

Tom V.

if you don't include the other stuff, you would basically have about 5 pictures total.

A Vortech Supercharger set-up with a Water to Air Intercooler and Procharger bonnet

Notice how clean the plumbing is. 862 HP at only 5300 rpm

These pictures probably should be before the Vortech post.

You are basically saying they should not be on the board, or Rusty 4 cylinder, or your pals the KRE Boys, George. Pontiac did not build Dragsters on the assembly line in Pontiac. No Pontiac VIN Number.

Hi Tom,


The Raven is and always was a Firebird.

Whatever you say, ED.

Maybe it was just the Chassis with the three different ways you could set up the car that was Camaro based. I believe you posted about that capability at one time, but might be thinking of a different car.

Nice pictures, John W.
Ed I made a mistake. You are a real professional with the simple statement:
"The Raven is and always was a Firebird."
Others could learn from your professionalism.

I had not talked to Brian in a while.
Does not surprise me that he sold the car.
He always liked the Jersey Shore with Family more than the 7.50s ETs
in the quarter he was running with the car. Thanks for the update.
Tom V.

ps Eddie Hill raced his dual engine dragster back in the 60s but it was boosted.
He has a couple of pictures in this thread. Pontiac Powered.
Even though Brain Hedrick sold his car to someone else, what bearing does it have
on posting up some of Brian Hedrick's pictures of his Boosted Firebird in this thread?

Here is Marty Palbykin's Pro Mod Pontiac (beautiful car) still being campaigned by Justin (Big Chief) as every one knows. In this case we are posting about the Car (which is currently running a Pontiac engine again obviously).
The show film does not show the beauty of this Pontiac Race Car.
