View Full Version : Turbocharging a javelin

01-24-2005, 04:56 PM
Has anyone ever seen a single or twin turbocharged javelin or amx? I'm looking into first designing and building a custom crossram fuel injection setup for my 360. I want to leave room for 2 turbochargers and the plumbing. I have a good idea of how I'm going to fit everything in but I'd like to see someone elses work ahead of time.

Never seen or heard of anybody trying to Tubocharge a AMC before. I guess it can be done and if you do it, let everyone know. Sounds intriguing and what fun you would have blowing the doors off of a vette.

There was an AMC proto-type built to pace the Indy 500 back in '81. The AMX had a turbo-charged fuel-injected 258 6-cylinder that was rated at 450 horsepower. The car was not used as a pace car for the Indy but does still exist.
As far as V-8 Turbo charged AMCs I can't think of any, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me if a few are out there.

There's a twin-turbo 390 in a 1969 AMX up in Idaho. Custom done by the owner. Very nicely done, the car looks stock until you open the hood.

I believe someone was working on a turbo inline six Jav at a website I used to go to, but they shut down. :mad:

I haven't seen a turbo charged amc but I have an injected, novi supercharger on my amc 360. I have it for sale for $18,000.
