Jason,

That is the new Supercharged motor going into the Ford Shelby Cobra right? :thumbsup:

Looks like the 2.0 L Ecotec supercharged engine used in the Cobalt SS. You making a turbo kit for that? That'd be very cool! Would make an awesome daily driver, my Lightning sucks as far as mileage!

A 9,000 rpm tach on a diesel? Ha, now I've seen everything. Whatís the operating range of the engine thatís going in there? I'm guessing way above stock. All in all a pretty insane project. I'm looking forward to seeing some shots of the street version.

Hey Jason,
Are you planing on a system for the ecotec motors?? My next daily driver will be a HHR. Id love to have a little more for that little four.Would it be for the 2.2 and the 2.4 ?

Behind the twin turbo engine is a Chrysler air cooled tank engine like Leno has in a big roadster. What is the story on that one ?

I was thinking the same thing. I have heard the engine is gonna spin 6000-6500 rpm.

I am hearing a complete engine package will be available much like our 366" SBC. We have a 2.0, 2.2 & a 2.4 on the premisis. Hopefully we don't have to worry about the power levels being similar to our 366". ;)


OMG
I'm speechless.

The truck was pulled completely apart after the pics & vids above were taken. Some major issues were found with the engine so it came completely apart. I hear it has to be running by the end of this month for some Bosch get together at Irwindale. :thumbsup:
