Mike Genovese may have been formerly known as a part of the ProCharger club, but in an effort to shave some numbers off that time slip, Genovese is moving on up to a monster set of Pro Mod 94mm Garrett turbochargers. Already having gone 4.81 to the eighth-mile marker with the old set up, Genovese hopes to push his super clean Fox body further into the eliminations rounds. Take a look over at Yellowbullet to see the new work progressing on his ride.
Bringing the ProCharger to twin-turbo conversion from the drawing board to the engine bay is Randy Westmoreland at Sherwood Performance/Leash Electronics in Sherwood, Arkansas. As of today, the car is just awaiting some finishing fiberglass touches to cover where the ProCharger used to reside. Even with two giant turbocharger inlets cut into the nose, they were able to retain the good old blue oval. Matt Parker, who painted the car’s cage, will also mold the turbos.
Genovese has been modifying and racing his mustang since he was 18 (15 short years ago). Undergoing plenty of changes, the car is currently powered by a 598-inch BBF with C460 heads and a custom camshaft backed by a Keith Neal powerglide transmission. Mike Duffy built the car with his own custom 9-inch Ford rear end setup with provisions to run stock suspension or an aftermarket ladder bar setup. Even though it’s been painted seven times, Genovese may have found a setup for the long haul.
If testing goes well, the car will be ready for a strong showing at SGMP in October, along with some local races in Tulsa, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas and elsewhere in the region. Look for this proven runner to put up some good numbers when all 598 cubic inches are let loose on the quarter-mile.
