.05 miles per gallon
@Percy Jackson, it would run out of gas before reaching the mustang
@Percy Jackson, a smooth 45 gallons to the mile.
I love old muscle cars but I cannot stand it when people do this to them
@Al Mal, I know. It doesn't even look good, and it ruins the whole purpose. A giant lawn ornament basically. I'd prefer a Cuda, a Daytona Charger, or an El Camino with a standard small/big block that I can drive almost all the time and go fast as hell when I need to and still look damn good. Or just a normal GTO. This would look damn fine without the ridiculous superchargers. Plus, I've seen more from a setup with a lot less done to it
@Al Mal, dude... this is a drag car. For drag racing only...
@ProfessorStrangelove, el caminos are literally so gay
@Bonersaurus, while you could very well be right, something tells me this is more of a show, rather than drag car. I'm usually at my local strip about once a month ( my best friend drags a 69 z28 camaro) and I have yet to see a drag car twin supercharged with two roots style superchargers like this one is, the power gain would be marginal compared to the major pain in the @ss it would be to fabricate a manifold to handle that set up where as at a car show that set up would earn extra points for style or fabrication. I may be wrong but that's just the feeling I get at first glance.
@Kingair983, possibly but I just see dragster written all over it
@ProfessorStrangelove, also this is WAY over built. It has 2 weiand blowers on it, one is more than enough, so whoever did this is compensating. I have a 67 Cuda fastback that I built kinda heavily, but I still get 18mpg city because I built it right, not like this.
@Kingair983, it wouldn't work properly as is while drag racing. I think that it would strain the motor mounts and everything else considering how high the center of gravity is on that engine.
@Wenis Prinkle, which would explain why I've never seen one set up like this at a drag strip lol. Pretty sweet on the Cuda btw, my dream car is a 71' with a 440
@Kingair983, that'd be a sweet package.
@Bonersaurus, with the bottom super charger having the smaller pully it would be making more boost than the top one if they were independently set up but with the way they are here, just looking at the picture I'm pretty sure all the top one would do is limit the amount of boost the bottom one could get. Instead of being able to pull as much air as it can from the atmosphere all it would be able to get is what already went through the first one. The way to twin supercharge something and make it practical is to mount them on top of one intake manifold and each have their own air intake, that way they compress air independently but still put all of it to the motor, which would make a ridiculous amount of boost and probably snap dang near any crank lol
@Kingair983, My dream car's a 70 AAR with a 340 six pack. Plum crazy. I will own one some day
@Wenis Prinkle, I've got a 74 Duster that i'll putter around with. Wish i had some money so i could do more, but it's damn near impossible to get a job as a 16 year old without knowing anyone
@ProfessorStrangelove, yeah I'm 18 and on a really tight budget, so all of my money went into an engine. I just bought the 5.9l V8 out of a 98 Ram and I'm using that. Unfortunately I couldn't afford rear seats or headliner or a few other things, but I'm still driving it as a work in progress.
@Wenis Prinkle, My car is all sorts of colors inside. White door panels amd back seats, black dash and aftermarket bucket seats, all sorts of holey rusted out areas. It's no award winner but it's cooler than most cars on the road. Has the 225, but you'd be surprised what you can get out of the slant six
@ProfessorStrangelove, totally. My dad had a 67 Cuda fastback when he was in high school, and it had the slant six in it. You can get a lot of power out of them too, he built his to 300hp with a little machining and parts available at the time. What color is your duster?
@Jg20, honestly if I was going to twin supercharge anything, I'd say screw using roots, or twin screw and just go with a pair of centrifugals no stacking required!
@Wenis Prinkle, It came maroon but i sanded it down and now it's a gray primer. Looks like the one in Dazed and Confused. It has a 4 barrel, Offenhauser manifold, and headers. I love it. Mega reliable and very unique. There's not 50 of em at every car show like Mustangs and Camaros. I need to get a better camshaft for it too, but I have no idea what kind to get and no one me or my parents know are good with Mopars enough to know the info
@ProfessorStrangelove, I feel your pain, being in college sucks all the money right outta you. I actually have a 74 road runner that's been sitting with a blown head gasket for six months and no money to fix it...:(
@Kingair983, Well at least you have the classic Road Runner horn, so ya got that goin for ya, which is nice
@ProfessorStrangelove, that sounds like a sweet ride though. If you look into the Mopar forums you'll be able to find a good cam for your engine, based off of other people's engines. Mopars are more rare because they're generally very light, and most people turned them into drag cars. There's only like 10,000 '67 cudas still on the road, so it's really rare. It makes Mopars more special.
@Kingair983, I know that feel, bro. :)
@Wenis Prinkle, :) good to know there are some fellow mopar muscle enthusiasts in here with me XD . Actually what makes my matters worse is my best friend with the 69 camaro has an 8-71 blower that he's willing to give me when I fix my ride, school tuition willing, that's where my income tax is going :)
@Wenis Prinkle, My parents said that they always thought Mopar drivers were weird in their high school days which i never quite understood. But since they didn't sell as much then they're a lot more in demand today. Means i'll have to save up a lot more to achieve all of my dream Mopars
@ProfessorStrangelove, Mopar drivers are generally the "bad boys", the trouble makers, because the cars are so light and the engines have very high power potential and were incredibly built. This all means the cars were extremely quick. Back in high school when my dad had his Cuda he almost got arrested once or twice for drag racing, so he wired a switch on the inside that shut off all the lights. Mopars are the rule-breakers, my dad's buddy has a roadrunner that he races with a 383, and with a totally stock bottom end he revved it accidentally to 8,000 rpm and the engine was totally fine.
@Wenis Prinkle, My parents and their friends are all GM people. They always wonder how they raised such a huge Mopar fan. They've got a 442, but no one i know is a big Mopar fan. The kids at my school don't even know cars let alone Mopars. I haven't even met one that knew what it meant. Too bad because I find they have more attitude to them compared to the other cars of the era
@ProfessorStrangelove, SOMEONE I IDENTIFY WITH!! :) Yeah, my parents are GM fans, I think GMs are boring because they sold a lot and the parts are dirt cheap and easy to get a hold of. I've also noticed that people just recognize mopars as cooler, my buddy was shocked at how many people talk to me at stoplights. Funny story: I have glass packs on mine, and the principal of my school pulled me into the office because apparently numerous parents filed complaints about the noise
@Wenis Prinkle, Haha I've got some Cherry Bombs I hope to put on mine which are illegal in CT but since we're classics we don't have to go through emissions. I could've bought a 76 Camaro or a Monte Carlo but I just got sick of seeing so many of them at car shows and decided I wanted something more unique. So when I saw the Duster I ignored it's many large flaws and just saw it as something different and awsome, and I don't regret it one bit. Although it is a bit angering trying to figure out where to get all the parts. I had to wait for quite a while to get the intake and headers
@ProfessorStrangelove, yeah, I don't know what I'd do without Craigslist.
@Wenis Prinkle, I actually got my parts off of the instagram page classics daily. The guy who runs it has a Scamp and was selling the parts. I really lucked out. Got em all for $700
@ProfessorStrangelove, that's awesome, thanks for the tip! I'll have to go follow them.
@Wenis Prinkle, It's a great page. The dude that runs it is a really nice guy. He said he'd give me a shoutout for buying the parts so when i get the new rear installed you may see my car on there!
@Jg20, double supercharging doesn't make sense. It's more practical to twin charge it with a singe super and a turbo. The super would give off the line boost while the turbo would be able to produce more boost than a super. The turbo also wouldn't take any power from the engine as a second supercharger would.
@ProfessorStrangelove, I've got a 2000 diesel pickup and I can do whatever the hell I want to it and not worry because here in Florida we don't have to worry about emissions. Btw my truck would probably fail since the turbo doesn't push more than 1/6 of the air the engine was designed to run off of. I get about 10mpg when I should be seeing between 18-23.
Hey now, i drive a mustang
@Obito Uchiha, same here! What year? Mines an 07
@Obito Uchiha, c'mon.... You know you'd be eaten by that pontiac.
@Obito Uchiha, not for long
@Ron Friggin Swanson, 08
@Obito Uchiha, hey now you're an all star
Bro, do you even engine?
Fire the cannon!
That's not even a mustang lol it's a Plymouth
@Azuro, no... it's a GTO
guys, I've been having a thought on my mind lately. so my friend and I have been sending each other photoshopped pictures of Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) back and forth to each other and I was wondering....whynaut make this a community thing. I know it sounds dumb, but Steven could be the community's Nicholas cage and be sort of an inside joke. anyone in?
@Mega Absol, *wynaut
Miles per gallon? This is probably gallons per mile
Is that like two superchargers?

Yo Dawg, I heard you like superchargers
The driver needs to be colonel mustang
