I remember seeing this thing parked in a lot downtown for years but didn't get a chance to see it up close until last night at a car show. That's a 6L Chevy twin turbo

Man that is a mess but great at the same time. I wonder if stuff like this will be looked at like how we look at 70's "street machines" today?

Cutlass seats, dash and rear window trim

Whats with the dual catch cans?
1 pulling air from post filter side pre turbo going to valve cover- Ok I get that
Other one pulling air from TB to vale cover- OK I got that

But why 2? One under boost and one for normal cruising????
