Car Feature: Josh’s 1991 Turbo Cavalier RS Wagon

1991_chevrolet_cavalier_wagon_c

When we stop by car meets, shows/events, or just in a random grocery store parking lot, we’re always on the look out for interesting builds… Like this 1991 V6 Turbo Chevy Cavalier Wagon. From a distance I mistakes the wheels for ENKEI92’s, which is what first grabbed me, only to find out from Josh they are actually old Barreta wheels he found in a junkyard for a bank breaking price of $27! Josh tells us his Chevy Cavalier wagon was an AT&T Service vehicle but now this “service car” is equipped with a turbocharged 3.2 V6 pushing 385whp. Josh pointed out the car, according to the state of Texas, is valued at $670 which is less than the passenger Recaro seat. It was definitely the most interesting car at Lee’s Sandwiches car meet in Garland Texas! Thanks for letting us shoot the car man! What Monsters Do! More pics and a few more specs after the jump!

    That wagon is awesome. I’m attempting to build my 91′ Z24 to out run my girls turbo Honda. Could I get and pics of the engine bay to go by? Any info would be great.

    Josh, this is one of the best projects I’ve seen period. You took a totally random car and made it one of a kind with a unique set-up, 5 stars. I like the fact that you took it upon yourself to customize this whole set up and not simply buy already existing bolt on parts . Great job! I too swapped a 3.1 V6 TGP Mclaren engine into my Beretta. I had a few question about the BOV valve you used. I also noticed you did away with the stock TGP wastegate solenoid. In general I had a few questions for you on how you did this project so I can complete mine. A reply in my email or facebook would be great. I hope you have continued success with your Cavalier wagon, it’s awesome!

    Definitely a 3.1 liter, not 3.2.

      Definitely a 3.2 liter, it is an over-bored 3.1 liter.
