Have you ever had a muscle car pull up to you at a stop light and you immediately wonder what is under the hood? Whether it be the in the weeds stance or the whine of a centrifugal blower that got your attention you will most likely never get a chance to find out what is really lurking beneath the hood. Luckily for you, today we bring you a video of an awesome Chevelle that will be lurking the streets of Tennessee looking for unsuspecting victims.
Steve Morris Racing Engines is based out of Muskegon, Michigan, and is well known for building some serious horsepower for many types of applications. One of the most recent cars to hit his dyno was a 1971 Chevelle with a 496 cubic inch big block propelled by a ProCharger F1R blow through set up.
With the Chevelle primarily being used for street driving it has an air to air intercooler as well as retaining some creature comforts like air conditioning. As a profound whine of the ProCharger fills the dyno room, the Chevelle cranks out a very impressive 800 plus horsepower and nearly equal numbers on the torque side of things.
All joking aside the fact that this street driven machine cranks out over 800 horsepower on 93 octane and low boost levels is pretty impressive. Boost levels remained low due to a restrictive intercooler so maybe we will get to see this beast back on the dyno again soon with some even higher horsepower numbers.
