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

240 MPH Half-Mile World Record

June 20th, 2016

The world record for top speed in the standing half-mile has fallen. The driver who shattered the 238.6 mph mark (set last year by K.C. Howeth in Texas) Saturday is no rookie. Gidi Chamdi is the man-of-the-hour. He once held the record at 234 mph and I’ll give you odds that he won’t let his new “high-water” mark stand very long. Gidi’s car is a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. It has a built 5.2-liter V10 engine and an Underground Racing X twin turbo package. The setup is good for more than 2,300hp. Despite the massive power, this Lambo remains very streetable Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

June 17th, 2016

Southern California has the perfect weather for almost any outdoor activity; that certainly includes street racing. This outstanding assortment of street beasts has gathered on this deserted country road to see who can claim bragging rights for the Golden State. There’s a 650hp second generation Camaro with a 383-cubic inch stroker and a 250hp shot of nitrous, a Canary Yellow Trans Am with a built 408-small block and an F1 supercharger making 800hp, a 400hp Vega, several impressive Gen I Camaros, a 500hp Dodge Demon, a 600hp Nissan GT-R, and lots more. Check it out for yourself; it’s a full Read More

205 MPH 1.4 Mile Huracan

June 14th, 2016

I love these ride-along videos. This is one such video in which an exquisite Lamborghini Huracan takes on a Ferrari 488GTB and posts a top speed of 205 mph in the 1.4 mile Hypermax IV event. This clip comes to us from the historic Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in the United Kingdom and features one of the most iconic supercars of the modern era. The “affordable” Huracan sells for around $200K and is equipped with a (mid-mounted) high-revving 5.2-liter V10 engine. It is offered in all-wheel (602hp) and rear-wheel (571hp) drive configurations. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (no manual offered 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

Aussie Street Racing – R32 & R35 GT-Rs

June 11th, 2016

This video begins with a heart-stopping ride-along in an 1,150hp GT-R. You get a hint that this is street racing from “down-under” by the right-hand drive and peculiar accents. The R35 is running a 3.5-liter V6 engine and making 42-pounds of boost. The R32 is equipped with a 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine, a giant ProMod 88-millimeter turbocharger, and a TH400 automatic GM transmission. The combo is producing between 1,200 and 1,300hp. This bit of action took place in a closed parking lot. The R35 comes out of the hole quicker but the R32 seems to have a distinct advantage on the top-end, Read More
