Check out that regimentation beneath the cowl. Why a turbo motor? They produce hideous power at much lower rpm than a nitrous air-sucker and are much kinder to the engine. Doug put in all the pipe, built the exhaust manifolds/turbo stands, and segued the discharge ducting. Those salami-sized 311/42-inch exhaust pipes are remarkably linear, made possible by simply removing the inner fenderwells. You know, it's not like Doug pedals this thing in the rain. The other thing that captivates us is the configuration of the rear suspension. Beaucoup power but no four-link, no coilovers. A simple bundle of leaves, adjustable shock absorbers, traction bars, and tall, sticky tires launch the Camaro to consistent 1.40 short times.
Doug produced paper from Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, as well as from Memphis Motorsports Park, where he ran the Hot Rod Magazine Pump Gas Drags last year. Seems his car is as consistent as day following night, no matter what the barometer, humidity, track conditions, or where he flattens the pedal. Now, if this sucker only had air conditioning...
What, you expected a chewed-out rat hole? This is a street car, so it must at least have such an appearance. A custom wiring harness is in there. Plush, full interior is justly foiled by a stark aluminum dash panel filled with Auto Meter gauges and a wink light in the periphery. Mr. Nelson directs the orchestra from Kirkey aluminum seats, a Grant steering wheel, and a Hurst Quarter Stick ratchet shifter. No air conditioning...yet.
