Maltitude

Who hasn't heard about Mark Stielow in the pro-touring scene?? the best "private" street machine builder in America as he doesn't build "customer" cars.

This Malibu called "Malitude" is obviously far bigger than any car he had built. It has an automatic transmission. It has twin turbochargers, making for the most powerful combination that he had installed in any of his top Chevys built in the past 12 years.

 

 

The engine is a Tom Nelson-built 372 small-block with :

-a Dart Little M block,

-Pro Topline 228cc cylinder heads,

-Oliver 6.125 inch rods made from 4340 steel,

-JE pistons with a 28cc dish,

-COMP valvetrain,

-a Vintage Air FrontRunner accessory drive 

-a stock-stroke crank.

-A Holley Stealth manifold

-a pair of Holley's 58mm throttle bodies 

-Electromotive fuel injection  

 On the dyno the 8.5:1 compression engine makes over 1,000hp and more than 700 lb.-ft. of torque with 10 pounds of boost in pump gas configuration with a pair of T-60 turbos from Innovative Turbo Systems.  

With race fuel, this combo made 1,000hp with 18 pounds of boost!

 

 

 

Chassis and suspension :

-Hotchkis Performance supplied springs,

-a B-body spindle conversion,

-tubular control arms, 

-hollow sway bars 

-Baer's 13-inch Grand Touring Plus system 

-minitub job for the rear wheels
