History repeats itself.
Your comment made me think of Bill Jenkins' Vega and the Gapp/Roush Tijuana Taxi. It would be awesome to see a turbo V6 doing battle, wouldn't it?

Rumor was current production V-8's.

Remember Buddy Ingersol's Turbo Buick and a Turbo Pinto in Comp? Later Buddy ran IHRA Pro Stock with the Buick.

Would probably have to do a turbo 4 cylinder (130 cubes has gone 6.57 at 233 in australia pro stock form) to be competitive with current prostocks. there is a 187 cubes 6 cylinder prostock style car that has gone 6.04
