Radical 1991 GMC Syclone V8 Turbo Swap – Drag Racing

While trolling the pits at H-Town Throwdown, the 1320 Video crew happened across this unique all-wheel drive mini-pickup truck. The GMC Syclone was offered for the 1991 and (technically) 1992 model years. This pickup featured a turbocharged 4.3-liter V6 engine with an automatic transmission. The Syclone came with a sinister blacked out paint scheme, specialty wheels and flashy badging. That was until the twins got hold of it. You’ve got to see it now. After bumping the turbo up to a 98-millimeter, the boys pretty much gutted the V6. Heavy-duty seemed to be the order of the day so, they Read More

1972 Chevrolet C10 Pro Touring Build

Thanks to Shawn (Autotopia LA) for another stunning build from the left coast. This time we have a Chevy C10 smoke machine built to tackle the curves or run all out in a straight line. Whatever kind of racing you have in mind; this truck is up to the task. Check it out. It all starts under the hood. A naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS3 V8 is pushed back in the engine bay nearly 10-inches. This helps with weight distribution and handling. Nothing radical with the engine, just a performance camshaft, some light porting and exhaust headers (2-inch stainless exhaust front Read More

OutlAWD Honda Civic Six-Second Monster

The name James Kempf is synonymous with front-wheel drive stick shift Honda speed. This time he knocked it out of the park, at the Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals 2022, when he crushed the World Record for a Honda (manual trans with an H-pattern shifter) in the quarter-mile. He reeled off an elapsed time of 6.91-seconds @ 198 mph. By any standard, that is really picking them up and putting them down. James can tell you about the car. Believe it or not, the engine is a four-cylinder 2.0 V-Series. Of course, it is built and sleeved. The turbocharger Read More

394WHP Turbo Budget Built Lincoln Mk VIII

As any gearhead will tell you, increasing horsepower and improving performance can be an addictive scenario. Unfortunately, it can also become very expensive. This video, from the Stay Tuned Crew, documents how these guys bought a cheap car (rear-engine V8) and inexpensively built it up into an 11-second quarter-mile street sleeper. Check it out. The car, a 1998 Lincoln Mk VIII, was discovered online. After a bit of recreational haggling, the rear-wheel drive coupe (118k miles) was purchased for just over $1000. That’s a good start since the Mk VIII came equipped with a 4.6-liter 32-valve V8 motor, an automatic Read More
