With regard to the latest projects in the past few months, I feel confident about where we are headed with regard to the economy. These small businesses are making investments toward high $$$ projects, and, from what it looks like, there are customers to buy them.

Also, I am sure that there are also a bunch of people like me with a single income who can continue to dream, which is also a good thing!

The Nickey Chevrolet dealership goes back to the 1920s and many of the people who created the Icon have since passed and are unfortunately no longer with us.

However, we do have some very significant members of the team still working with us. If you would like to learn more about their past involvement and history then just Google their names.

Don Swiatek; The one and only original Hi-Performance Cars and Parts Manager for Nickey Chevrolet.

Ronnie Kaplan; The Crew Chief for all of the Dealer sponsored road race cars.

Bill Thomas & Family; Bill Thomas Race cars was a covert, back door engineer and promoter for GM racing. They developed some of the technology and parts used back in the day, just like they did for our 2002 1,200 hp tt.

There are many other significant contributors from back in the day as well.

I am truly blessed to be able to work shoulder to shoulder with some Great people.

A couple years ago I was looking them up for research on a '68 Cam and I beleive it was still the Nickey family then.

1,200 HP is Drivaeable, but DAMN! the idea you can smoke the tires from 0-100 is something that would be hard to fight. Not to mention, the fact you can accelerate so damn fast, that Johnny Law would miss you.

I admit, it would be fun, but take work to control your urges.

1,200 rwhp on a 4th Gen or most any car is tough to handle without serious chassis mods and/or tubs. The Nitto drag radials are still breaking loose at over 100mph. The car is very steetable untill your on max boost!

Jim, the CEO of FLP has an Impala SS LT-1 daily driver with over 1,000rwhp!

no that would be a offset sequintial setup...most people wont bother withit because of the tuning and fabrication it would take to make that work , and the one car ive seen with it done was a waste ...the power output wasnt anybetter and often caused the computer to crash at high boost and caused problems with the smaller turbo...and this being a v8 lag isnt a big problem due to the tourque

i believe thats how the stock supra twin turbo setup works, but otherwise its just 1 turbo per bank of cylinders spooling half the total boost as to drop spool time

So I am confused. You mentioned that you did not get your Camaro completed for Sema. So whose Camaro you are showing went to the Optima Challenge?

I think they look great. $145 a set for satin and $160 for polished. They thread to the top of the strut. It requires no modifications to the underhood and clears everything without leaving a mark. Please let me know if anyone is interested.





Polished



Satin

I like satin although in these pictures the polished looks better
NICE STRUT CAPS!!! Looks killer
Please start another thread for the turbos. PLEASE!!!

I've seen that 1000hp Nickey car go down the track many times...and man oh man does it *hate* tires! Wheel spin on demand doesn't even begin to describe that thing...all seems well, then the boost hits, and it's Katy bar the door!
