Best Engines from SEMA Las Vegas 2010 – LS Chevelle

SEMA Car Show – Our Favorite Engines

SEMA 2010, Custom Chevelle, LS swap, SEMA  Las Vegas

This is the kind of engine that stops you in your tracks at SEMA. Among all the great rides making the SEMA car show, standing out is tough, so hats off to the “Be Cool” Bomber project 1972 Chevelle. From their show card, this is an LS1 motor punched to 388 cubic inches and built by Terry Rosebush Performance for owner Kiet Pham. Pictured right up front you’ll see the ProCharger blower force feeding the custom made Hilborn fuel injection setup. It’s said, “Injection is nice but I’d rather be blown.”  Why not have both?!

So this is how it started. Hilborn supplied the fuel injection setup, but from there, it was all custom. The guys from the facebook page said, “The mandrel bender will be hot on Monday!”

No sweat! Eight tubes all merged to one inlet, then moving backwards, you’ll go through the throttle body, to the intercooler, around to the ProCharger blower and to the air cleaner. All that fits neatly under the hood. Wish I coulda stayed around to hear this baby run! Videos out there?

Congrats to what looks like a big team of vendors and builders, especially the Gordon Aram “A-Team Racing”, to get this blown and injected Chevelle to SEMA.
