VIDEO: Street Outlaw’s 1969 Chevy ‘Murder Nova’ Insane Triple Wheelie

Shawn Ellington’s 1969 Nova is one of the most well-known cars in the country. His fame is brought about by the hit Discovery Channel TV show: Street Outlaws. Ellington (aka Murder Nova) is one of the biggest personalities on the show along with his friend Justin Shearer (aka Big Chief). The two opened up a speed shop called Midwest Street Cars several years back and devoted their lives to speed. Ellington recently upgraded this beast from a carbureted and supercharged Chevy big-block, to one with electronic fuel injection and a pair of 88mm Pro Mod turbochargers. The engine is a 572 built with a Lunati crank, Oliver connecting rods, Diamond pistons, Dart Pro 2 cylinder heads, and Comp roller cam, lifters and pushrods.



The Murder Nova touts a mighty big block Chevy Engine. Big blocks have larger intake and exhaust valves than small blocks. This leads to better performance as it allows for a more efficient fuel-to-air ratio during the combustion process. Better ratios allow the car to take in air and spit it out much faster. Also, big block engines are about 30% heavier than small blocks, which usually handle high rpms much better than it’s smaller aluminum block counterparts.




The Murder Nova has an F3 Pro Charger which provides a boost up to 50psi and kicks out somewhere around 2,000 horsepower. The F3 Pro Charger is built to push air into the engine at a faster rate leading to superior performance.


The Nova has a 210 Turbo 400 transmission. Launched in 1964, the GM Turbo 400 series has been used in many classics including Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles and Chevys. It’s rugged, highly durable and can take a serious beating.


The Nova has a fuel injected carburetor allowing Shawn to put the pedal to the metal without flooding the motor. With the fuel-injected system, the motor should now stay dry and run at peak performance.

    What happened to the good old days of you raced what you drove there with. Not what you towed or flat bedded to the race with. These Okies claim to have the fastest street legal cars in the nation. But to the contrary, the only car they have that is legally registered and insured, and is driven all the time around town on a daily basis is the Farm Truck.
