3200HP Fox Body Mustang

May 14th, 2016

Some folks say that we do things a little different in the Deep South and I reckon that is true for the most part. However, when it comes to Lights Out 7 events at the South Georgia Motorsports Park, ‘different’ just might mean some of the baddest cars on the planet. Here’s an example: Mustang Mike is campaigning a beautiful Fox Body Mustang with a massive 670-cubic-inch LS7 billet engine and a pair (yes, I said a pair) of ProCharger F1X superchargers making 43-pounds of boost at 7,000 RPM. This car has one of the most unique supercharger setups that Read More

Ferrari 488 GTB Dyno Test

May 11th, 2016

Sure, they look and sound impressive, but did you ever wonder what kind of numbers a high-performance supercar would put up on the dyno? Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, or Ferrari; they all draw our attention and spark our imagination but few of us can dream of owning one. Nevertheless, my curiosity is aroused whenever I consider interjecting such an automobile into a street racing scenario. Anyways, check out the dyno test. This is a stock Ferrari 488 GTB with a 3.9-liter V8 with a dual-clutch 7-speed automated manual transmission. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3-seconds flat and Read More

Porsche Carrera 911 991.2 Dyno Comparison – The Power of the Turbo

April 2nd, 2016

Porsche’s latest line up of 2017 model year 911 Carreras have gone from naturally aspirated engines to forced induction adding a set of turbochargers to their boxer 6 cylinder engine.  So what does that mean for power and torque?  A lot of it with big increases over the previous non-turbo engines. Cobb Tuning recently put a brand new 2017 Carrera S on their dyno to see just what was happening and the new engine delivered making 380HP and 373 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels on their DynoJet Dyno.  They also did a direct comparison of a Carrera with the previous non-turbo motor Read More

930HP Shop Truck Dyno and Drag

March 16th, 2016

The crew at Ultra Blue Traction Compound has put together a shop truck that has been letting them down as of late. First, there was the ‘incident’ at the dyno. It seems that the guys were expecting to put up a four-digit number and they could only irk out 930hp. That’s still pretty impressive considering that we’re talking about a Chevrolet Silverado. Next, they rolled into Street Car Takeover Phoenix looking to put down a few 9-second passes and the best they could manage was a 10.07-second pass @ 134 mph. Look for bigger and better things from this crew Read More

900HP General Lee Viper T/A Rocks Street Car Takeover

February 29th, 2016

Roll racing, dig racing, dyno testing – heck there’s even an inadvertent lane change in this clip captured during the Street Car Takeover Event in Dallas, Texas. Calvo Motorsports (Austin, Texas) is tearing up the Lone Star State with its rendition of the General Lee (Dukes of Hazard) except their version has replaced the confederate battle flag with a Texas State flag. The Generation V Snake has been modified with a Powerhouse Racing turbo setup that includes a pair of Garret 3794 turbochargers and a CM MoTec M150 ECU. This car has posted a 1/4-mile ET of 9.2 @ 150.6 Read More

2000HP TT 1964 Chevy Malibu SS

December 24th, 2015

Here’s one awesome looking resto-mod muscle car beefed up with a pair of turbochargers and a built big block engine. It’s dyno day for this fresh build, so the boost pressure is only turned up to about 9psi but this beast still makes 933hp. With a projected boost limit of 24psi – who knows? – possibly over 2,000hp! Key modifications include a built 572-cubic-inch big block, twin Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers, and a custom built pro-glide transmission. It is also tubbed out to house a set of M&H Racemaster 390s on the rear. The owner says that he built the car Read More

Tri-Turbo Mazda RX-8

December 4th, 2015

They say that good things come in threes and I guess this car owner took it to heart. This car has a three-rotor engine and three turbochargers. This unique combination of rotary power and triple forced air induction gives this car one of the most intense exhaust notes that you will ever hear. Wilbert Performance put this car together and helps to campaign it. It has been dyno certified at 1,670hp and routinely makes sub-seven-second quarter-mile passes. This fire-breathing monster looks like a million bucks and sounds like a pissed-off bumble bee on steroids. You simply must see this import Read More

Head-to Head – 2015 Camaro Z28 vs. 2016 Shelby GT350R

November 27th, 2015

For as long as the term “Muscle Car” has been a part of the English language, Camaros and Mustangs have been squaring off on the black-top. Ford loyalists will quickly make you aware that the Mustang started it all in 1965. The original pony car smashed sales records and became an instant classic. Chevrolet quickly answered with a tremendously popular sports coupe (called the Camaro) for the 1967 model year. When asked what the name “Camaro” meant GM designers said, “It’s a beast that eats Mustangs” – and so the battle ensued and continues until this day. Check it out Read More

Quarter-Mile Record Holding 617HP AWD Taurus

November 13th, 2015

So you want to rip up the track in a sedan? Try this one on for size. How about an all-wheel drive 2010 Ford Taurus SHO? This bad boy holds the world’s record for the EcoBoost platform (in the 1/4-mile drag racing segment). It laid down an 11.5-second pass at 119.49 mph in November 2015. This video shows us the professionals at Livernois Motorsports as they go about their business putting together a bulletproof 3.5-liter EcoBoost with proprietary four bolt main caps and cylinder head studs. This thing is line bored, balanced, and blue printed to be extremely smooth and Read More

Twin Turbo Viper Runs 8.39-Second Quarter-Mile

October 16th, 2015

This video begins with a no B.S. dyno run that offers proof of this Viper’s horsepower availability. This thing turned out 1,724-horsepower at the rear-wheels with the boost dialed down to 30 psi (maximum boost capacity is estimated at 35 to 36 psi). After pushing the dyno to its utter limits, the guys at D3 take the Snake out to the track for some electronically timed 1/4-mile passes. D3 has a reputation for producing 8-second cars and this clip certainly doesn’t tarnish it. This Mopar is equipped with a Greg Good racing engine, upgraded cylinder head fasteners, Pro EFI fuel Read More
