America’s Fastest Scion

Get a load of Pure Automotive Performance’s lime green FR-S campaigning at the World Cup Finals in Maryland. This is one artfully crafted drag car. It ends up with a North America record setting 9.2-second quarter-mile run at 150 mph. Under the hood of this FR-S you’ll find a turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ (Toyota) engine being force fed copious amounts of air via a Precision 67-millimeter turbocharger. The custom crafted intercooler and piping are immaculate on this ride and so is the interior. Pure Automotive certainly knows how to put the nuts and bolts together. Power for this fantastic looking ride Read More

Twin-Turbo 5.3-liter Nova Runs 8-Second Quarter-Mile

Nathan Shaw of Lakeville, Minnesota has built himself a great little street/strip car. It has a dandy paint job that appears black under certain light conditions and green in others. The car is a 1971 Chevrolet Nova and it was on display during One Guy’s Garage Drag Week; more importantly, he laid down an 8.63 1/4-mile pass @ 157.91 mph. Nathan’s Nova is well equipped with an all-aluminum 2008 5.3-liter Chevy block with Wiseco pistons, Callie’s connecting rods, a stock crankshaft, ARP hardware, and TFS 220 cylinder heads. Air induction is of the forced variety and features a pair of Read More

Turbo 2JZ-GTE Equipped Mustang

What the …? This great looking Ford Mustang doesn’t have a built 429 Cobra Jet and there’s no turbocharged 5.3-liter LS motor. Instead, this little American beauty has a junkyard Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE thrashing about under the hood. What’s even more interesting is that this thing made it all the way to the semi-final round of the Kansas City F-Body Event. The 2JZ-GTE is an inline 6-cylinder and the one in this pony car is bone stock. A massive 76-millimeter turbocharger does most of the work. It is accompanied by a Pro EFI controller and power is transferred to the Read More

Drag Race – Porsche 918 vs Stunt Plane

Have you ever seen a car that could whip a plane in a race? Well, this video shows you a Porsche that has everything it takes to gut it out against a plane and win by a nose. This is a close contest that showcases this revolutionary little stunt plane (called the Christen Eagle II) performing a handful of aerobatic stunts, then getting spanked by a ground-bound craft. The Porsche 918 is an innovative supercar in its own right. It features a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 608hp and a pair of electric motors that make an additional 279hp and Read More

Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

Momma always said, “Nobody likes a whiner” but Mom, there are times when a good whine can be quite pleasant. For instance, when this killer white Lamborghini Huracan rounds the bend and you hear a startling whine as he jams on the accelerator and plants the rubber to the pavement. That whine is from a Eaton TVS2300 roots type supercharger sitting atop a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The entire package is produced by VF Engineering from Anaheim, California. This Lambo is also equipped with a 6061 aluminum intake manifold with an internal bypass and high-flow dual throttle bodies with high-flow MAF Read More

2300HP TT Lambo Huracan Breaks Half-Mile Record 238 MPH

Underground Racing is on the cutting edge in turbocharged high-performance technology and they proved it again at the WannaGOFAST Texas 1/2-mile event in Sulpher Springs, Texas. This awesome looking twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan (driven by KC Howeth) posted a world record-setting speed of 238.6 mph; besting the old record by nearly 4 mph! The previous record holder was Gidi Chamdi and he was also piloting an Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini when he set it. Gidi’s car is a Superlegarra and we know that he’ll be back shortly to carry out his next move in this high-speed battle of one-ups-manship. The Lime Read More

1200HP Rotary Powered Miata

Check out Mad Mike’s four-rotor Mazda Miata at the 2015 SEMA Show. This unique roadster is setup for drift racing and it is on display in the Garrett Turbochargers booth. Mad Mike is a native of New Zealand but he makes frequent trips to the U.S. to compete in Formula Drift events. With its four rotor engine configuration and a pair of Garrett GTX 40 turbos, this car sounds awesome. Sure, you could build a high-powered V8 for a fraction of the cost but there is something to be said for originality. This specially designed rotary Mazda engine certainly has Read More

Mutant Unicorn ‘Vette Makes 2400HP

Hold on to your hats fellas! This Chevrolet Corvette mutation is gobbling up the competition like a pig eats corn. Originally built for street racing, this beast is still trying to gain some traction in the roll racing game but once he gets the handling issues sorted, we look for 200 mph+ closed airstrip passes at will. The guys at D3 Performance Engineering have really outdone themselves with this monster. It features a LME (Late Model Engines) built 414-cubic-inch LS based engine with a pair of 88-millimeter turbochargers sticking out of the hood. With Pro Fuel Injection, C127 MoTech instrumentation, a Read More
