When you have the urge to build something that is bigger and just plain badass, sometimes the results can be scary. Case in point: this 1963 Chevy Impala with a 540-cubic-inch Hemi and Whipple Screw Blower!
At 19 and a half feet long with over 2,500 horsepower (!), this is a true beast of a muscle car. The car, owned by Norwegians Jamon Haug and his brother, boasts all-original steel and real glass – no carbon or fiberglass here boys. This monster is fast too. Watch it take on Vettes, Camaros and other sports cars without breaking a sweat. Even using Nitrous, these cars have a hard time matching the pure power of the monster ’63 Impala.
So, how does the Impala get so much speed and power? Its supercharger. The screw type supercharger provides the Impala with enough power and speed to make it a contender against the fastest of the fast on any day of the week.
According to Super Chargers Online, the screw type supercharger offered by manufacturers like Whipple and Vortech is perfect for street use and drag racing, as you get excellent power at low RPMs. You’ll lose a lot of that extra power in the high revs, so keep your races short!
Screw type superchargers do take quite an effort to install, but when fitted, they look great – as “The Gudfar” in this video shows. Check out the video below, and SHARE if you like it!
