Classic Nova Sleeper Packs Huge Punch

January 19th, 2019

This is just the kind of car that makes auto mechanics – with big forearms and grease under their nails – giggle like teenage girls. It’s the kind of car that street racers (young and old) desire to build. They talk about building and think about building, but almost never get around to building. Well, feast your eyes upon this: While I was busy thinking about building the ultimate street sleeper; Drew was busy buying it. He found a very ordinary looking 1972 Chevrolet Nova which Kurt Urban Performance has transformed it into something otherworldly and wisely snapped it up. Read More

Turbo Silverado vs. Supercharged Mustang – Street Hits

January 9th, 2019

Roll racing is frowned upon by some. Usually those who haven’t tried it. My heart will always be in the dig, but there is something exhilarating about hitting the interstate for some high-speed shenanigans. Boosted vehicles are ideal for roll racing because they have ample opportunity to spool-up before the racing begins at 40, 50, or 60 mph. From there, it’s pure power through 140 or 150 mph – what’s not to love? This clip features street (roll) racing between a diverse group of vehicles. There’s a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck with a 5.3-liter engine and Garrett S480 turbocharger. Read More

The shop is Race Proven Motorsports (RPM) in New Castle, Delaware and they are turning out some of the most impressive street racing GM vehicles on the planet. Production begins with a 2017 Camaro ZL1 with a manual transmission. It will undergo a dyno test to obtain stock horsepower before getting some serious modification in Read More

1956 Chevy Coupe – 6-Second Monster

January 6th, 2019

That’s correct – all metal (with the exception of the hood and trunk) – with factory glass and trim. Known as The Creamsickle, this orange Chevrolet economy coupe has posted a best quarter-mile elapsed time of 6.80-seconds @ 210 mph! Any way you slice it – that’s a whole lot of pickin’em up and puttin’em down. As previously mentioned, this is a complete car in factory trim. The fenders, doors, and even the bumpers, grille, and trim are stock GM. Translate that into HEAVY. It’s going to take a ton of horsepower to get this big body moving. Wheels are Read More

January 5th, 2019

Buckle up racing fans! It’s time to take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some 45/50 mph roll racing hits. Featured in this clip are a trio of purpose-built muscle cars dedicated to interstate dominance. The oddball is a Fox Body Mustang. No shortage of curb appeal here, but what makes this ride truly unique is hidden beneath the bonnet. It’s packing a big punch from a 6.0-liter (LQ9) GM truck engine. The big truck mill has been upgraded with high-performance internals (fully-built), Texas Speed cylinder heads, and a 175hp shot of laughing gas. The Chevy motor is carbureted Read More

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a night of roll racing on the streets of Mexico.

LS Swapped Mustang – No Prep Nightmare

December 20th, 2018

Oh no – say it ain’t so – is that a 1967 Ford Mustang doing a burnout in the bleach box? Rumor is that it has been retromodded with a turbocharged Chevrolet engine. That’s going to get under the skin of many Mustang purists; many of whom bleed Ford Blue. Motivation for this pony car comes in the form of a salvaged GM LQ9 (6.0-liter) V8 engine (from a 2003 Cadillac Escalade SUV). After only a camshaft upgrade and some cylinder head porting and polishing; the Caddy motor was outfitted with a Borg Warner S475 turbocharger and an intercooler setup. Read More
