1995 Geo Tracker with a Twin-Turbo V8

Vinnie Barbone’s 1995 Geo Tracker called “Project Samsquanch” is probably the fastest mini SUV on earth. Power comes from a BluePrint Engines Chevy 454 ci small-block V8 with a full Holley EFI system and two BorgWarner 6676 turbochargers. The engine produces 900 horsepower to the wheels on conservative 10 psi of boost. Behind the engine sits a Rossler 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and Ford 9″ rear end. Vinnie knew the suspension would need a lot of work to stand a change on the track. In the front you find a Chris Alston Chassisworks Mustang II suspension, Mustang Fox body four-link in the rear, and the wheelbase increased four inches. Inside the cab is a 7.50-rated roll cage which should give you an idea of where Vinnie is going with this creation.

    Vinnie,
    Super impressed with your build. I have a 93 Tracker. Bought a 96 Vortec 5.7/ 4L60E. Thinking about putting ot in.

    Will the stock suspension work(at least for now)?
    Rear end hold 4-500hp?

    Trying to get an idea of what I’m getting myself into. Daily driver/ toy. Hang with the new muscle cars on the road today.
