    While moving I found an old issue of "popular hot rodding" and there's an article in there about Mike Morgan and John Meany with a quad turbo 442 BBC, pushing 2200HP that they were going to drop into a '95 camaro. some things that stood out about the engine was that it didn't use gaskets, reved to close to 10,000 RPM, used an intake designed from exhaust headers, and a few other innovative ideas (at the time). there was supposed to be a follow up to the article with some hard numbers, but I can't find it anywhere. anyone have a clue what the hell I'm talking about?

    I know what he is talking about, I remember that, the entire engine was o-ringed instead of using gaskets and yes the intake manifold was made of headers. I believe it was supposed to be "Pro Street" Camaro, I never heard anything else about it either

    yep, that's it. seems like everyone I've mentioned this to hasn't heard anything else about it either.

    It never made a decent pass and may not even have made a good dyno pull. Basically it was an enormous failure and waste of money and it's been shelved.
