Dang Mikey. Lol. Just watched the video. Car is equipped with centrifugal superchargers. Carbuzz editor just doesn't know that they don't produce full hp until way late in the power band
Quinn Conner May 17, 2012
But then it wouldn't send that much power at a moments notice like explained
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
It could be a centrifugal supercharger.
Phillip Greene May 16, 2012
Tecnicly turbos are called turbine superchargers so yeah
Ashy Larry May 16, 2012
I thought this car was Twin Turbocharged? Hot Rod done an article, pretty sure it's a Nelson Racing Engines twin turbo motor.
Phillip Greene May 16, 2012
Hell yeah we more stuff like this on carbuz
Clint Edwards May 16, 2012
It could do more, too
Micah Lau May 16, 2012
It can do that with a twin supercharged LS2 engine.
Axel Cousins May 16, 2012
Jeez!!!! That is amazing how it can do that.
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
Super Sleeper haha good one.

Wish they would shut up and just drive the crap out of it
Nick Steiger May 21, 2012
The definition of American Muscle
prodrag May 17, 2012
Best body style of the Nova.
Mikey Jimenez May 17, 2012
With that extra money you can bore it and make more HP. Forged internals would also do the job and you still have a little cash left over.
Mikey Jimenez May 17, 2012
They were underrated so they made closer to 385HP and 400 ft/lb Torque.
Devin Babyn May 17, 2012
How do you get 30 HP when a LS1 puts outs 350 and a LS3 is 430? And that extra cash is buying some way better tech
Mikey Jimenez May 17, 2012
Try 30HP difference and about 6-7 grand cheaper.
Devin Babyn May 16, 2012
I just watched an entire show dedicated to how much better then LS3 is to the LS1. The improvements in the heads alone would make me buy the LS3. They also said it has 60 or 80 more HP so how's that about the same?
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
Not really lol, you don't know much about the LS series do you? the LS1 is cheaper, it's lighter, and makes around the same power. Besides I didn't even bring up the LS1 so what's your point?
Devin Babyn May 16, 2012
Mikey I get the whole I'm in love with LS thing but why the LS1? If you're gonna do it, do it right and put in a LS3 They shit on LS1's so why wouldn't you rather have that. In guessing price but it can't be to steep
Doug True May 16, 2012
I just saw this car twenty minutes ago at cruise nights in libertyville Illinois.
David Griego May 16, 2012
My uncle has the same year nova with a 327 that makes a decent 460 HP at the wheels. It's a beast, imagine this thing with over twice that amount! Insane!!
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
Yes, tears are coming down my face. If you don't like my posts then why even bother commenting about them? Good to know that I'm famous on here. I say put an LS1 on cars that have good suspensions and chassis but don't have the HP and TQ
rahp May 16, 2012
hey guys pull your panties out ... I know an ls2 is an ls motor hence the ls identifier ... I was refering to the fact that every other post by you is put an ls1 in everything with wheels. I wasn't really surprised. sorry I made you cry.
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
@rahp you should read dumba**.
Clint Edwards May 16, 2012
That thing is freakin awesome. I like these cars, they're built for car guys, not some millionaire collector
Lou Guerrero May 16, 2012
Must be nice to know you can own anything at a stop light. Beast indeed.
Micah Lau May 16, 2012
Hats off to Dru, because he built a Super Sweet (SS) Nova right there.
Vince DeMasi May 16, 2012
Wow that thing was badass
Patrick Schalk May 16, 2012
Yeah boi. That Nova is saweet.
Dillon Dixon May 16, 2012
Gotta love all the play in the steering. Cars like this are the very reason why I am such a huge muscle car person. I would take this over so many supercars. I love this so much.
wfdowns May 16, 2012
it already has an ls engine
rahp May 16, 2012
WHAT??? Mickey doesn't want to put a ls1 in it??? lol. this thing is awesome. I would still have to put in some harnesses .... can't do the no seat belt thing.
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
This is how a real car should sound!
Mikey Jimenez May 16, 2012
Damn this thing is BA!!
Jake Trumbull May 17, 2012
This car is pure testosterone-forced fed fun. Nothin better than a beastly sleeper
Harpreet Ahluwalia May 17, 2012
I'm going to build a sleeper with two sets of exhaust pipes and a butterfly valve, one way way sleeper mode and the other being a straight pipe
Clint Edwards May 16, 2012
@Henz if you have to ask, you wouldn't understand
James Patrick Delaney May 16, 2012
I love sleepers, I think this thing would have to be parked to be unassuming. If its running I doubt a lot of cars would pull up to that rumble at a red light.
wfdowns May 16, 2012
cause when u can own alot of things on the street its funny, when they call ur car junk and then there face when u own them is priceless
Henz Herrero May 16, 2012
Whats the point of a sleeper.. If he restored it a lil bit, thn the car wud look and run amazingly.
Patrick Schalk May 16, 2012
I'd race this mofo just to see how bad he beats me haha.
Micah Lau May 16, 2012
Yeah, read tires and traction bars are a giveaway - also its stance. I wouldn't race this thing with my 1992 Nissan KingKab 2WD.
Dillon Dixon May 16, 2012
That looks like so much fun. What a car!
quadrophine May 16, 2012
I'm still partial to the 66 67 chevelles. but I'd still rock a this 72 nova
Zach Hill May 16, 2012
I would have this over anything else..
Will Peters May 16, 2012
Who knew that a 1,200hp engine is hiding under that
gammo66 May 16, 2012
true sleeper would love to have it
Ben Norton May 16, 2012
Wow they did a really good job. Only give away are the rear tires
