Brother to Andy. Maybe Andy built it? Ive got a old, old, HotRod or CarCraft with the turbine Camaro in it. Thought it was Vince that built it, although thinking back, it may have been Andy who built the car but it was an AMAZING car! Just was wondering what ever happened to it? Im sure one of them built it, Im old not senile , now all Ive got to do is find that damn magazine with it in it. (LOL)

DEI Turbo blankets...It is not a one off, but will not be offered as a kit either. Nickey customers will be able to add it as an option to their Stage II and Stage III packages. Plug access is easy, all of them can be easily changed from the bottom of the car with no issues what so ever.

I am assuming you mean this one, our 2010 Yenko/SC 427 Camaro.

Z0-6 Vette Wegner Motorsports engine, RPM higher stall convertor & reworked auto trans, HD axles, and getting Pedderized as we speak. That will include Pedders "drag package", coil overs, new busings, drag race alignment, etc.

All of the cosmetics and much of the other installation work was done by the crew at Nickey Chicago.

The car should be done this week, then to Alton, MO to enjoy.

Please excuse the quality of the picture, but here is Don Yenko's daughter Lynn in the car.

Justice Pete of Pedders USA was here at the Nickey shop helping out with the Special Drag racing package we installed on the Clary's Yenko, YS10001.

Stay tunned for a full feature tech-article, by Bob McClurg coming out soon.

This set up will be tested and tuned on the track after the holidays.

Lynn is thinking she wants her car to be Hugger Orange.

Andy never built anything - Andy does the talking but Joe and Vince did all the working on projects. The Cover of Hotrod you refer to is the twin turbo Camaro (not turbine) the Turbine CORVETTE was on the cover of Popular Hotrodding and Motor Trend. Not calling you senile but there is no Granatelli Biult TURBINE Camaro - that is a fact. I am as Granatelli as you get and I would know

I do not have the exact numbers handy, but in the 450 range, both HP and torque.

The numbers could have easily been higher, but I wanted something my wife, who is not a car person, could drive and enjoy, yet something I could put my foot in and it would feel like a musclecar. The car, with the upgrades, idles at 650 RPM, has a nice smooth musclecar sound, has a ton of torque, and is not a PITA in traffic.
At the recent MCACN show I started it several times to move it, and not only did the wife and I like the sound, but several others commented on the quite rumble. IMO, sort of sounds like our '69, nothing harsh, but you know there is something extra under the hood.

So, it's pretty much a basic crate LS-7 engine?

Yes and no. The engine builder started with a bare ZO-6 block, then built and blueprinted it using the best internals. According to him, the motor is basically bullit proof, capable of handling a supercharger, turbo, nitrous, what ever we might want to throw at it.

No! The only thing left mostly as GM built it are the Intake and the block.

Almost every other component is custom and has been upgraded!

It makes a bunch more HP and TQ than a ZO6 Crate motor and like Tom mentioned we can up the power level in many ways without issue!
