2JZ Swapped Nissan 370Z – 248MPH Quarter-Mile

January 18th, 2020

This race car is called Blue Thunder, but what is it? Is it a Toyota? Is it a Nissan? Nobody knows! What we do know is that it is extremely fast. About one year ago, Jorge Juarbe (and crew) built this wild import. Opting out of the Nissan motor and saying “heck no” to a big V8; Jorge instead selected a steady-ready 2JZ Toyota (Inline 6) mill for his Nissan 370z. After building the Toyota engine with the best internals available and bolting on a PRO-JAY Bully (billet) intake manifold, Jorge added a 106-millimeter Precision turbocharger. This guy rolls off Read More

She is owner and driver of what will likely be the fastest eighth-mile stock block drag car in the world, one day. As a racer, I could continue her statement with “break it again and repeat the whole process.” It’s what we do, and Tess has been doing it well for nearly a decade.

1965 Mercury Comet – 10-Second Junkyard Build

December 31st, 2019

It ain’t how you look. It’s what you have under the hood! Well, this 1965 Mercury Comet Coupe is packing a load under there. Nope. She ain’t gonna win any beauty prize. Her sheet metal is far from straight and her paint hasn’t been shiny in many moons. Nevertheless, there’s a certain charm to this old girl. Could it be the massive chunk of iron under the hood? This is the biggest of the Ford big block engines – a 460 cubic-inch monster. This is the kind of mill that only came in huge station wagons and pickup trucks, but Read More
