What do you get when you combine Armor All, Tony Stewart, and Stacey David with an iconic vehicle like the Corvette? You get a really cool car called "Ol' Smoke" . That's right, on this project Stacey takes a brand-new 'Vette and shows you how to create your own 180+ MPH Supercar for a fraction of the cost of a ZR-1, using some aftermarket parts. How is that possible?... turbos baby! That’s right…..plural…..because on this project Stacey decided to slap a PAIR of 'em on the Corvette, to run the horsepower numbers to over 600! If you have ever wondered about turbo charging and if its right for your vehicle, this is the project you definitely want to see. But, that’s not all…… there are also some serious brake upgrades, a custom hood and wheels, and even some unique “smoke” airbrushing that make this a definite, one-of-a-kind car. Gentlemen, start your engines!
