Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack – 1500HP VW Golf

July 2nd, 2019

This 1995 Volkswagen Golf GTi gives terms like “sequentially-shifted” and “all-wheel drive” new meaning. You see, this wild-looking VW manufactures 1,500hp with a pair of VR6 turbocharged engines (mated with a pair of sequentially-shifted manual transmissions) – one on each end! First, the engines. They are matching VR6 mills built with powder-forged connecting rods and JE pistons. Up top are Techtonics (solid lift) camshafts. Intake and exhaust manifolds are full custom with a pair of Garrett 67-millimeter turbochargers (air-to-water intercoolers) furnishing the air. The gearboxes are both from KAPS Sequential. Each engine makes approximately 750hp. The car is owned, built Read More

735HP 2JZ Lexus SE430 – Street Hits and Dyno

May 6th, 2019

So, one beautiful summer evening you are out trolling the streets (of Mexico) when you come across a Lexus coupe. The driver is giving you the stink eye. You know the one – like he wants to take your cookies. You tell yourself that he wants none, but realize that his little Lexus started life with a V8. The two of you roll onto the freeway for some racing. He pulls alongside and gives you the signal. Before you know it, he’s blown by and all you can see are taillights. Thing is, the car looked stock and you never Read More

World Record Setting Toyota Supra –TX2K19

April 3rd, 2019

I hope you will understand that Joel Grannas is an exceptional race car driver. One need to look no further than the 9-second testing and tuning rounds to see that. Every quarter-mile pass in this rambunctious, manually shifted Toyota Supra seems more like a series of four or five passes. Each one shooting – crazy and uncontrollable – in a slightly different direction. That’s what racing is like when you have built a manually shifted car equipped with a 1,650hp 2JZ (inline 6-cylinder) engine with a massive turbocharger (50 psi of boost). Under the hood you’ll find a Bullet Race Engineering Read More

They are all set to surprise friend and long-time customer Chuck beyond his wildest dreams. With about 2-years on his Novi 2200 and 7.0-liter LSX setup, Chuck brought his Corvette in needing a refresh on the engine with some more potent upgrades to follow (when the Read More

1500HP ETS Nissan GT-R Street Monster

March 5th, 2019

Prepared by Top Speed Motorsports, this pavement eating monster of a 2017 Nissan GT-R is ravenous on the track and respectable on the street. In breaking with the Godzilla moniker, Andrew’s GT-R more closely resembles the Hulk. Calm and cordial David Banner by day, but you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. This car is running a prototypical stock turbo manifold kit from ETS. The engine is a 3.8-liter V6 with a billet crankshaft. The intake manifold is a dual-injector unit from AMS with some ID fuel injectors. The controller is a MoTec unit tuned by Taylor Lear and the Read More
