Well, I caught the hybrid bug. No, not a VW. I am building a carb'd turbo (without computer) 3.8L and I think I have finally come up with something original to put it into. One of my customers thinks that his cousin is getting rid of a vehicle that the motor is T.U. in. I am going to build up the motor and drop it into


A Postal Jeep.

I am going to keep it right hand drive and have the slider doors and all.

The engine has dynoed at 520RWHP. The car weighs in at 2600lbs. I have worked hard at reducing weight. Anything that doesn't need to be there isn't.

Chyke, could you send me an email or give me your email address? I'd like to ask about your gears and tire size if you don't mind.

Thanks,

Roger

I saw a hybrid on E-bay about a year ago. I don't know who ended up with it but it was a DeLorean. Was hot air powered. headbang

Oh and last year at a huge car show about 70 miles from me I saw a 1948 Anglia that was powered by an 86 GN drivetrain.

Don't forget my buddy Steve in Vegas.

He Has a GN powered Porsche 944. Orginally hot air and is converting it to 86 setup.

He helped me a bunch!

..and my previous build up:
http://personal.inet.fi/private/tapi
and there click "Manta GN"

Unfortunately I had to get rid of the engine after some dull finnish regulations which are limiting the power/weight-ratio. Now the engine is in another hybrid: Olds Cuttlas STW.

I drove about 3000 miles with my Manta GN and that was fun!

Tapi,
Very cool car! I'm curious how you mounted the second turbo. Any thoughts or suggestions on how to get this done similar to yours? Do you have a template for the bracket? I was thinking of doing a twin Chevy small block for my one T but the extra time of swapping motors doesn't make me smile. My Monte should have the twin Chevy done by early summer. So, I may put an additional turbo on the existing LC2 motor and I was amazed to see that you accomplished this. It has been done before by a recognized Buick vendor but he never released specific details regarding how he did it. Thanks in advance! headbang powersix

Hi John.

I still have the first headers I did, but I don't think they are worth anything. The next pair was much better in flow and sealing. I think the best way to do them is that you place the turbo where it fits and then route the headers one bend at the time. I used two outlet hoses for oil and they ran directly to oil pan. I used only one MAF and the air flow had to be divided after that.

I updated my e-mail in my profile today. If you have any questions, please contact me.
