    i don't understand how that is supposed to work with the muffler on there instead of the airbox.

    It's ghetto as hell, but it prolly works just fine.

    And some V8's are hard enough to get the proper exhaust mani for, much less a turbo plumbed one.

    Eh, it works and it looks like it cost about $100.

    the only thing I don't get about the setup is with the muffler on there, wouldn't you lose boost because the air would gather up in there?

    That's right...who needs an expensive Skunk2 intake manifold? Just slap an old Flowmaster on there and call it a day...

    I'll bet it runs like a raped ape. Homemade ghetto fabrication is amazing... I would bet there isnt more than 400 bucks in the entire car and with the blow through and what I think that motor/carb setup is... itll be good for 9s.
