Jason Musu’s ‘built not bought’ turbo Centura at the Calder Park Nostalgia Drags


JASON Musu has owned his Chrysler Centura for 20 years, and in that time it has gone from a factory six-powered daily running on LPG to a 10-second strip stormer. Under the bonnet is a 318-cube Chrysler V8 boosted by a GT47 turbo. The set-up is good for 600rwhp running 19psi on 98-octane pump juice, but the forged-internals motor has been built to handle up to 30psi.

Jason – a diehard Mopar fan – did all the work himself and spent years figuring out how to get the set-up running to his liking. “It wasn’t like doing an LS swap, where all the info readily available – I had to do all the R&D myself,” he says.

We caught up with Jason and the boosted Centura at Calder Park earlier this month; check out the video to see his car in action.
