1980 Malibu with a turbo 6.0 L LSx V8 for $2,000

Can you build a vehicle capable of running 9’s for only $2,000? Dario from Infamous Automotive is going to find out. The project starts with a 6.0 L LSx he purchased for $226 ($236 with starter) out of a junkyard on half-price day. The engine will be upgraded with a reground LS1 camshaft for $165 and a 7875 turbocharger for $250. Dario is keeping track of every single penny spent on this project including the small stuff like an oil filter.
