Funny Business: Scott Pareso’s Twin Turbo Funny Car

The Funny Car Chaos (FCC) series is one of the most exciting things happening in drag racing right now, as each event brings out a wild mixture of Funny Cars from different eras of drag racing, and the result is some great action for the fans. Scott Pareso’s very unique Funny Car adds some extra spice to each show with its unique twin-turbo setup.

Pareso originally campaigned his ride originally as an altered that ran well into the 4-second zone in the 1/8-mile. The 1990 model, 125-inch Rowe chassis was updated in 2007 by JD2 Chassis and has worn its altered body for many years. Pareso recently decided it was time to mix it up with the racers in the FCC series, so he added a Camaro Funny Car body to make the car legal.

The Funny Car is powered by a 540 cubic-inch big-block Chevy from McCabe Racing Engines that uses a Dart Big M iron block as its base. The top end features a set of Profiler cylinder heads and T&D rocker arms. Boost is funneled into the big Chevy thanks to a set of Stainless Works headers and generated by a par of BorgWarner s475 turbos. A Holley Dominator EFI system controls the 550-pound Precision Turbo & Engine fuel injectors that are fed by the Enderle fuel pump. Transferring the horsepower to the Mark Williams Enterprises rearend is a BTE Powerglide transmission and PTC torque converter.

Pareso is still trying to work the bugs out of the car with the new setup and managed to run a best of 4.99 at his first FCC race in Texas. Check out this footage from Living Nitro that shows Pareso’s Funny Car in action.
