Step by Step – 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner-Hellcat

October 25th, 2019

The HELLRUNNER is a full blown, body off restomod performed expertly by Fast Freddie’s Rod Shop in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Fast Freddie takes us in a step-by-step journey to unite style and speed. The 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner is a snapshot of muscle car heyday. The Chrysler Hellcat drivetrain achieved legendary status the instant it rolled off the assembly line in 2015. Marrying these two icons was more a matter of “when” than “if”. Believe it or not, this entire project begins with a barn find (I must be looking in the wrong barns). The Mopar was discovered sitting under a Read More

New GMC Syclone – 10-Second Full-Size Pickup

September 27th, 2019

You gotta love a pickup truck that will absolutely smoke all four tires on a whim. Strictly Performance Motorsports (Kalamazoo, Michigan) has created a one-off GMC Syclone that does exactly that. Let’s have a look. It all started with a ruddy old mud truck from the hills of Kentucky. When Strictly Performance got hold of this Cowboy Cadillac, it was riding on a set of 33-inch stump jumpers and the undercarriage was caked in a thick sheet of mud. After chiseling the mud off, a big turbocharger was added. Despite having a stock 5.3-liter engine and stock cylinder heads, the Read More

900HP Subaru – Journey to the 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 19th, 2019

I got mad respect for this father/son team representing Cuba. Pops has been a technician for more than sixty-years. He got junior started early in the engine building game and it’s finally paying off. The two have combined their resources on this 900hp Subaru with outstanding results. Like most of us, they are looking to shave time from their next pass down the strip. Today, these guys are looking for that elusive 8-second pass in the quarter-mile. Their 2005 Subaru WRX STi is a work of art. With hundreds of passes in the books, this Fuji Heavy Industries stud comes Read More

Hellcat Swapped Mazda Miata – Dyno and Street Hits

July 24th, 2019

There’s just nothing better than a big old domestic V8 crammed into the engine bay of a tiny sports car. If you do it right, it’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Well, there is no smaller sports car than a Mazda Miata and no bigger (from a horsepower standpoint) V8 than a Dodge SRT Hellcat Supercharged. Today, we join VMP Performance in the Sunshine State as they tweak and tune this orange creation using the dyno. Looks like the little roadster has been stripped to the gills. All the passenger comforts have been removed in lieu of performance. Read More
