Normally, when a powertrain swap occurs, the displacement becomes larger. Not with the Chevrolet Performance 1967 Nova build, however.
Chevrolet surprised the 2014 SEMA Show with an LTG crate motor, sitting in its 2.0-liter turbocharged glory. And what better way to strut how capable the LTG crate engine is than stuffing it into an iconic car like the Chevy Nova?
Chevrolet Performance took one 1967 Nova and did just that, and they’ve provided a nifty timelapse of the work being done for everyone to enjoy.
The car recently made its rounds at each 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour stop, and we already took a closer look at the build previously. We’re sure it caught more than a few people’s eyes when they saw the pint-sized LTG engine sitting in place of a burly V8.
After days, and many hours, the team had a working 1967 Nova with the performance, and fuel economy, of a modern day four-cylinder. Sacrilegious? We don’t think so. It’s pretty darn cool. Check it out below.
