Turbo Acura V8 Killer

December 11th, 2017

You can imagine our surprise. After all, it isn’t everyday that we pull up to an event like Street Car Takeover Phoenix (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park) and find a front-wheel drive Acura Integra going on about quenching some V8 dreams. Even more to our amazement was the tiny four-cylinder engine underneath the hood. Before the day was done in Wild Horse Pass, we would discover that the fella’ with the biggest gun doesn’t always have the fastest bullet. The car was setup to campaign in the Front-Wheel Drive Class but a lack of FWD competitors resulted in a move Read More

1100HP TTLSX 350Z – Street Rolls

December 11th, 2017

Looking like something from a science fiction film, this Nissan 350Z dominates on the highways (of Mexico) in a fashion that is seldom captured on video. With its wide stance and beefy rubber, this Z-Car has power to burn. It is equipped with a twin turbocharged (pair of Precision 6266s) 5.3-liter LSX (Chevrolet V8 small block) engine. Boost is currently set at 30 psi and the car is running a stock GM manual transmission. Climb into the passenger seat and see what it is like to take make a few roll racing passes in this rocket. You won’t be disappointed. Read More

Twin Turbo HEMI 300 Street Hits

December 4th, 2017

Welcome aboard Mopar Airways Flight 160 (mph that is). Place your luggage in the overhead storage bins and buckle your safety belts. You are about to be treated to some low altitude passes in a Chrysler 300C luxury liner. The Texas (Mexico) streets are hot tonight and this Chrysler sedan is a big reason why. It is trolling for some roll racing action and finding it in droves. This Chrysler 300C has been treated to an engine upgrade. The new mill is a 404 cubic-inch stroker HEMI. It has a pair of bottom-mounted Precision 6766 turbochargers that are being water Read More

Spoolio – 8-Second TT Camaro

November 23rd, 2017

This video treats us to a long weekend of speed from Arizona. Get ready for some high flying (almost) dyno action, electrifying quarter-mile passes, and a ride along for some bone jarring half-mile hits. Our feature ride for this well produced flick is a Gen IV Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It has been upgraded with a built 376 cubic-inch LS3 engine block and a set of LSA cylinder heads. Engine performance is amplified with a Huron twin turbocharger kit. Power is dyno certified at 1,050hp (21 psi of boost) on this day and the twin turbo V8 sounds amazing. The action Read More

World’s Quickest Shelby GT500

November 15th, 2017

Welcome to Budds Creek, Maryland and the Maryland International Raceway. Allow me to introduce to you the Devil’s Reject Shelby GT500. It is capable of producing approximately 2,200hp. This video documents a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang (highly modified) that has laid claim to the title of World’s Quickest (and Fastest) X275 modular engine Shelby GT500. During the 22nd Annual Haltech World Cup Finals, this pretty Cobra Mustang set in to laying down some consistent six and seven-second elapsed times (at around 200 mph) before dipping down into the sixes to stay. The most dramatic moment came when the Devil’s Read More

Corvette Crazy – Insane Street Hits

November 14th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a well organized night of roll racing action on the streets (of Mexico – obviously). This group of competitors is serious about roll racing and it shows in their machinery. The action kicks-off with a little red Corvette (baby you’re much too fast … but I digress …) Z06 that’s packing 434 cubic-inches of LS motor with a 250 shot of nitrous. It is rubbing door handles with a Blue C6 ‘Vette. The blue Chevy  has a 7.0- liter LSX engine with an F1A Procharger. These two cars make multiple passes with the blue Read More

1300HP Aussie UTE Sleeper 

November 11th, 2017

This Aussie UTE (Australian for Sport Utility Vehicle) is perfect for building a sleeper. It is compact and lightweight and it even has a place to haul your cargo. In keeping with the sleeper scenario, this pair of fun-loving Australian race fans crammed a 400-cubic inch LS engine between the fender wells of this right-hand-drive UTE before shipping it over here to compete in Hot Rod Drag Week 2017. As if the motor swap wasn’t dramatic enough, there’s also a pair of 69-millimeter turbochargers in the bed. The vehicle is a 1997 Ford Falcon XH, which weighs in at about Read More

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

November 8th, 2017

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More

Ball of Smoke – 850WHP 13B RX7

November 4th, 2017

The Mazda RX7 featured in this video brings to mind an old saying. It says that it ain’t the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog. The displacement of the engine (76-millimeter) that propels this car down the 1320 (in under eight-seconds), is actually smaller than its turbocharger (88-millimeter). Nevertheless, the combination of the 1.3-liter semi peripheral rotary engine and a single Precision turbocharger produced 850whp during dyno testing. That is good enough to post consistent 7-second elapsed times in the 175 mph range (quarter-mile). Most Mazdas at the drag Read More

Street Pulls – 800WHP EVO

November 3rd, 2017

What could be sweeter than an 800whp DSM? How about a warm night of roll racing on the highways of Mexico? The feature car is a 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution (8) that has been radically modified to enhance performance. It is powered by an EVO 9 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been built by AG Autosport (with steel connecting rods). The bottom end is rated at 1,000hp. It also uses a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger. A pair of Walbro 450 pumps keep the E85 fuel flowing. A Haltech ECU (tuned by CriSpeed) keeps all the ponies running in the same direction. The Read More
