1952 Willys Jeep with a Supercharged Vortec

1952 Willys Jeep with supercharged and nitrous 4.8L Vortec V8

I have been wanting to post something on this death machine for a while but all the video footage was of it racing on the streets. I am sure a lot have seen the videos but if you haven’t just search for “LSx Willys Jeep” on Youtube. This video shows the death Jeep on a dyno testing its 4.8 L iron-block Vortec motor running a D1 ProCharger supercharger and nitrous system. Running a 100 shot of nitrous produced 729 horsepower and 689 ft-lb of torque. Normally for the street the motor is setup to run 250-300 shot, which is probably good for close to 1,000 horsepower. So picture that much horsepower in a little metal shell with no doors or roll bar and only lap belts to secure yourself to the flat seats.

Update 6/1/15 – New video at the track
