Hell of a hood ornament, especially when you have no hood. I'm betting she blows off in the wind though.

Second thought.. how did she get up there? Awfully understanding car owner to let a model climb your blower stack and perch on top of it.

What a terrible fate for a beautiful old Pontiac GTO.

Stackin a heat pumpin, power robbin blower on top of another heat pumpin power robbin blower is a great exercise in futility, not to mention a phenomenal waste of cash. Until someone creates a blower that somehow manages to make boost without addin tons of heat into the intake charge, with no way to even cool it they'll never even come close to what a turbo system can do in terms of overall efficiency which is what performance is all about winking

Agreed but building a monstrosity like this isn't about real power, it's all about looks. Kinda like 22" chrome wheels on a Honda. smiling

I've often wondered what kinda HP could be achieved with a turbo set up coupled with a top fuel budget. I figure the 6000-8000hp they're gettin these days would be blown into the weeds. 'Course they'd have to come up with even heftier drive trains to be able to hold the huge increases in HP they'd be gettin.

F-1 used to get 1000+hp from turboed 1.5L engines (w 80+psi of boost even before the advent of computer controlled engine management!!!) before they eventually banned 'em as too powerful eye popping
