Twin Turbo Chevy Powered Mustang

June 29th, 2016

You read it right – this great looking blue Ford Mustang Boss is now the CEO. After replacing the meager Ford mill with a massive 568-cubic-inch monster Chevrolet big block, this Mustang commands respect on any track. In addition to the built big block, this blue beauty has a pair of Garrett GT 4788 turbos and a 2-speed TH400 transmission. Running 26-inch tires, in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets (Chicago), this Ford made its way all the way from Arkansas despite losing a back glass in the previous weekend’s racing. He takes out a pair of Mustangs Read More

Single Elimination Street Racing

June 27th, 2016

Take a gander at some old school, single elimination-style street racing, on a deserted 2-lane country road (the bales of hay were my only clue). The preliminary round features a Corvette and a first-generation Mustang. The potent Ford gets the hole-shot but can’t seem to get hooked up on the gear changes. The ‘Vette claims the victory and moves on. Next, we have a Cadillac CTS-V vs. a GenV Mustang. The Caddy pulls the Ford throughout and takes a first round win. Now, we’re on to a contest between a nitrous C6 Corvette and a nitrous Fox body Mustang – Read More

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More

No Prep Gangster – Fox Body Mustang

June 22nd, 2016

You have probably heard of Boosted Solutions (out of Chestertown, Indiana). They campaign The Fugitive. It is a 3,500hp Chevy powered Mustang that kills at major No Prep events. This video brings us the newest project that the guys at Boosted Solutions are campaigning in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets in Chicago. No Prep is the hottest ticket in drag racing right now. This Fox Body Mustang is equipped with a 118-millimeter turbocharger. It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Old School Turbo Nova

June 21st, 2016

This clip shows us a classic battle between a Gen III Nova and a late model Corvette Z06. Besting a Z06 in the 1/4-mile is a monumental task for any overweight muscle car and serious bolt-on modifications (to the ‘Vette) just serve to make matters worse. To even up the competition, the ’73 Nova is equipped with a late model Chevy LS engine and a turbocharger. It looks awesome with that low slung stance that is so typical of this era of Novas. It also has a full roll cage and a TH400 automatic transmission. There’s another close race between the Read More

Tesla Model X P90D is more powerful than the Model S P90D

June 20th, 2016

When we first tested the new Model X P90D with Ludicrous mode at the drag strip running an amazing 11.6 @ 116 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway we were quite surprised how quick and fast it was compared with the Model S P90D Ludicrous running 11.3 @ 116 MPH in a direct heads up race. Given the extra 600+ pounds the Model X has to carry around over the Model S combined with Tesla’s own spec that both have the same motors, same battery and make the same power (532 HP motor power), the numbers just didn’t add up.  While Read More

Street Racing – Mustang vs. CTS-V vs. Z06 Vette

June 16th, 2016

This is some top-tier street racing action between three domestic power houses. The Mustang has an awesome looking USMC paint scheme, an Aluminator Ford Racing engine, and a 76-millimeter CPR turbo kit. Hoo-Rah! This Ford is making 740whp on 93-octane fuel. The supercharged Caddy is making 630whp with a camshaft upgrade, a cold air intake, a crank pulley upgrade, and a methanol injection. Finally, we have the naturally-aspirated Chevrolet Corvette Z06 producing 600whp, the old fashioned way. The ‘Vette is also the camera car. Check it out – this is classic roll racing between three mean mothers. NOTE: We neither Read More

Monster 800HP No Prep Trans Am

June 13th, 2016

What shade of orange paint is that? It’s orange-you-jealous of that 7-year old paint job. Seriously, it’s Tangerine from House of Kolor and it (like most of their shades) is stunning and durable. So, it looks good but it ain’t just how you look – it’s what you got under the hood. Well, this orange F-Body has been known to blaze through the 1/8-mile in the mid-5s, with the front wheels in the air nearly halfway down the track. Under the hood, it has an L33 Chevy 5.3-liter engine and an S480 turbocharger with a TH400 automatic transmission behind that. Read More

3000HP Second-Gen Camaro Street Car

June 9th, 2016

First of all, this Camaro is a street car. It is an all steel car (prepared by BrandoSpeed) with all of the factory glass intact. Despite weighing in at more than 3,500-pounds, this car whipped every other car in its class – at the Outlaw Chaos Event in Cedar Falls, Iowa – to take home the cash. A massive 540-cubic-inch ProLine racing engine and a pair of turbochargers get this fantastic looking muscle car down the 1/8-mile post-haste. This is a no prep event but the best 1/8-mile ET for this Mustang killer is 4.38-seconds. Take a gander for yourself; Read More

Dig Race – Evo 9 vs. Viper

June 8th, 2016

What’s better than a parking lot dig race? A parking lot dig race with beautiful women. What’s better than that? – when one of the beauties is driving a really fast car. Stunning Sky Espinoza owns two impressive Mitsubishi Evos and she does most of her own high-performance work and maintenance. She’s a real knockout – behind the wheel and in front of the camera. This clip shows her racing her ‘MisterJ’ Evo against a mighty Dodge Viper. The Mitsubishi rolls off the factory floor with a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 4-banger. It makes 286hp in factory trim; safe to Read More
