Default CV1 Turbo Video

Finally was able to get the video of my engine start up for you guys to see.

Since then I have changed a few simple things.

The first few second it is black screen.

Good job on the video, thing sounds real good, nice idle. Also real good job on the installation, sure looks good. Sounds like it's making some serious power.

Thanks for the comments guys.

If you want videos of it going down the street...you will have to get me a hookup on studded snow tires!lol

Jeff the car does idle real well, for a carb. Thanks to Brent Davis.

No doubt summer will be a blast. Going to try the sleeper aspect for a short while. Got a buddy with an 80 TA with a monster BBcheby I gotta a call out. Think I can get into the 8's...and then some.

I did get to take the car around the block a few times. This is going to be a loong winter
