Chevy Chevette with a 1,500 HP BBC V8

Published in

Small cars and big motors always make for an interesting and fun combination. Don Foess brought his very powerful 1985 Chevrolet Chevette to Drag Week. The Chevette is powered by a 555 ci big-block Chevy V8 with twin BorgWarner 82 mm turbochargers. Don has never had the car on a dyno but estimates it produces around 1,500 horsepower. The best run was 7.89 sec at 177 mph and had several high-7s and low-8 runs.
