Hi everyone!

Just registred as a member. I live in Sweden and have a big passion for old american cars. I currently own a 72 Chevelle and a 65 Impala wagon, both are going to get more powerful engines, i removed and sold the supercharged 350 i built for the chevelle to make room for a supercharged bigblock. I am currently installing a turbocharged 350 i built in the Impala wagon.

Just to make you feel a little better about gas prices in the US, here gas is going for a little more than 8 dollars a gallon.

Welcome to the Team Filip!

Out of curiosity about those European model turbo charged Porsche Carreras and Volvo S60 Polestars I see on Top Gear (I watch on BBC America years after they were filmed) and your eight US dollar a gallon. Does the gas have enough octane to meet your performance needs. I see all of these Ferraris and Lamborghinis and other thousand horse powered V-12, and V16 powered cars with turbos wondering how or were they by gasoline. Are there special gas stations reserved for the ultra rich that only sells race gas?
