Good luck Harry....time to get that beast back on the road.

Us Camaro guys have been pretty easy on these Nova guys lately.

Time to show them who is really the King of the road..... :thumb:

This coming from a guy that hasn't even run his car one time this year :smt005 :smt005
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

Hey bud...

Looking at replacement blower options. We think it happened when the distributor gear let go at speed, under boost. The resulting boom likely distorted the blower casing momentarily, bring the impellers in contact with the housing. Bad juju. :(

Everybody should own a blower car during their lifetime.
