ChevyII Nova SS TT LS

I let my brother drive my LS Single Turbo Mustang. He found out pretty quick that his 875whp Mitsubishi Evo VIII was just not going to cut it. So about 2.5 years ago we drove up north where he bought a 1964 Chevy II Nova SS. Solid car for sure. Came with damn near every single oringinal part, a lot of the oem parts that were removed the guy saved in storage. SCORE! 12003416_10152996646927105_7160903274862375898_n.jpeg11227042_10152996647962105_7011306886535285303_n.jpeg11988525_10152996648002105_8520552121206730401_n.jpeg

Nothing about the car he bought was screaming 9, 8 second 1/4 miles. So a couple weeks of getting bored with a worn out sbc, the teardow had begun...12309508_10153118384367105_8861473978315062531_o.jpeg12509499_10153182941677105_9140114907912998797_n.jpeg12507451_10153182941822105_8133536414548457161_n.jpeg13900218_10153621319882105_4468474196392523122_n.jpeg13938479_10153621319897105_2790068239295185353_n.jpeg

To catch everyone up to its current stage and skip all of the boring stuff. 2 years later and moved into a new house, the Nova is now at the stage where even though its on stands and not running, your jaw still drops. A lot of time has went into his build. Already the car has been recognized by some of the bigger names in performance industry. MAVEN Performance, 417 Motorsports, Motion Raceworks and Precision Turbo Engineering to name a few. This weekend is fabbing the turbo downpipes and wastegate dump tubes. I am sooo glad i talked him into the bullhorns.FB_IMG_1526684017901.jpegFB_IMG_1526684027532.jpegFB_IMG_1526684038205.jpegFB_IMG_1526684043728.jpegFB_IMG_1526684048846.jpegFB_IMG_1526683724770.jpegreceived_10155147385177105.jpegreceived_10155147433887105.jpegreceived_10155147434502105.jpeg4704.jpeg

BILLET TEASER

I will post the pics sometime before June. I will just say i was amazed at the machine/fab work that went into the intercooler, lower intake and sheet metal upper. Some amazing work by 417 Motorsports, I believe this was their "prototype" sheet-metal upper intake that replaced the Holley High Ram upper. Possibly a prototype lower as well. I will have to get the scoop from my brother. Ill get the photos up soon

Here is a batch to start your day. I cannot get over how sweet this intake/intercooler setup is! For comparison, the fuel rails have -10AN fittings and hose while the A2W Intercooler uses -16AN. I dont want to know what the bill on fittings alone will be for his Nova The machine work that went into it is next to art, in my honest opinion. I love the tooling marks on the lower intake runnners and how they have a "melted" look to them where they meet the flanges. Let me know what ya think! The Intake billet lower, sheet-metal upper and billet A2W Intercooler is all from 417 Motorsports, out of Springfield, MO
