Alberta’s Dean Branham who’s super radical 1967 Barracuda is one of Canada’s most popular and creative Outlaw 10.5 cars has received a significant engine upgrade for 2014.
Now nestled within the frame rails is a massive Brad Anderson engine (BAE) that will be equipped with a Precision Pro Mod 88 turbocharging system.
Dean, who has been steadily refining his Barracuda for a number of seasons, has coaxed his homebuilt machine to a 6.69 secs at 210 mph run so far using a more conventional Mopar-wedge head engine program in the past.
