Dyno Pulls – ProCharged LSX Corvette Z06

November 1st, 2022

The dyno room is where bull-smack comes to die. Luckily for bull-smack, Real Street Performance has one of the cleanest and most sophisticated dyno rooms in the country. Without further ado, let’s strap this beast down and get ready to rumble. This C6 Chevy Corvette Z06 has been upgraded with a 441 cubic-inch (7.0-liter stroker) LSX V8 engine with forged internals (crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons). The cylinder heads are factory LS7s with CNC porting.  Up top there are Manton Pushrods and a CHE rocker arm/trunnion kit. A Holley EFI Hi-Ram intake manifold acts as liaison between the blower and Read More

Roush Supercharged F-100 – Dyno Pull

September 15th, 2022

What’s better than a hotrod pickup? An old school pickup retrofitted with a modern supercharged mill. With minimal cosmetic work, this truck owner has built himself a pretty fast 1968 Ford F-100 pickup truck. The guys from Brenspeed are set to install a set of Detroit Rocker camshafts and an upgraded supercharger pulley before getting this truck on the dyno. Let’s take a look. Under the hood is a neatly installed 3V setup. The running-gear, electronics and instrumentation are from a 2010 Mustang. The Roush M90 supercharger is from a 2005-2009 Mustang. The 4.6-liter 3V engine is basically stock with Read More

Palm Beach Dyno has become a leading name in speed – especially as it pertains to forced air induction. Today, we have Ken (from PBD) paying some serious attention to research and development. He will be experimenting with a pair of modified Shelby Mustang GT500s. The venue is the Indiana Half Mile sponsored by SHIFT S3CTOR.

The Patriot – 2500+WHP Nitrous Camaro Hits the Dyno

August 19th, 2022

Today, we get a chance to sit in on Fuel Tech’s Advanced Dyno Training Session with the 1968 Patriot Camaro and the Robert Hayes Motorsports (RHM) crew. After a major crash during a Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings small-tire race, the Patriot Camaro spent the summer months getting a chassis upgrade at the Hayes Motorsports facility. Just for good measure, they also jerked the 632 cubic-inch big block mill out and installed a Pat Musi 959 cubic-inch motor. To add insult to injury, the guys also went with a four-stage nitrous kit. Can you say KABOOM?! As anyone can see Read More

Small Tire Gen III Camaro is Small Block Ford Powered

August 5th, 2022

Now and again, you run across something so perplexing that you just can’t figure it out. A question arises, like why would a prominent No Prep Drag Racer build a straight Gen III Camaro Z28 with perfect paint and a scary stance – then drop in an engine that is unreliable, temperamental and more expensive than most anything else? For the answer to that question, you’ll have to consult car owner Kye Kelley. Just a word of warning, Kye has been known to march to the beat of his own drummer. This Gen III Chevrolet Camaro fits right in with Read More

Kye Kelley’s 1987 Buick Regal Daily Driver

July 26th, 2022

Affectionately named Claude Banks, the 1987 Buick Regal of No Prep drag racer Kye Kelley is everything that you might expect. Built in just six weeks, this restomod is ready to hit the dyno and move to the street. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 scavenged from the Summit Racing catalog. Kye says that the engine is built to handle massive amounts of nitrous so you can bet that it has some premium internals. The transmission, rear end and brakes have all been upgraded but the suspension is mostly stock (with the exception of some lowering springs). Read More

3300HP Ram Diesel Runs 4-Second Eighth-Mile at Ultimate Callout

June 14th, 2022

Ziegler Diesel Performance (ZDP) was on-hand at the Ultimate Callout Challenge in Idaho Falls, Idaho. They were rolling some serious coal! After running an eighth-mile pass of 4.99-seconds @ 148.51 mph, the Ziegler crew strapped the mighty Ram onto the dyno. With the bleachers and infield positioned safely away from the machinery, the ZDP monster posted an unbelievable 3336hp and 3642 lb.-ft. of torque (at approximately 185 psi of boost). It was quite a moment for everyone in attendance. The ZDP Ram is equipped with a 5.9-liter Cummins diesel, a compound turbo setup and a healthy dose of nitrous. It Read More

Cleetus’ Big Block Swapped Crown Vic – Dyno and First Burnout

May 12th, 2022

Cleetus McFarland and his crew at Freedom Garage are known for building some wild rides. None is wilder than the Twisted Tea Ford Crown Victoria. Saying this car has undergone weight reduction treatment is like saying a pig’s behind is pork. This car has been decapitated and stripped down to the bare necessities. As if that weren’t enough, these guys trashed the old modular 4.6-liter engine and replaced it with a massive 632 cubic-inch big block. This is an all-aluminum, dry sump behemoth of a motor that is capable of producing 1,000 naturally aspirated horsepower (on race gas). Running pump Read More

This vs. That LS Swapped Subaru vs. 600HP Honda Civic Hatch

April 19th, 2022

We have a wild one tonight! Like two angry bumblebees fighting over a ripe honeysuckle, these two modified imports are planning to let it all hang out for the win. In the left lane, we have an LS swapped Subaru. In an effort to realize supreme domination by cubic inches, the factory boxter motor was scrapped for an LS V8 setup. After several V8 options were exhausted, the owner settled on an LS3 7.0-liter all-aluminum engine. He then added a kit of nitrous for good measure. A 6-speed manual transmission and a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end complete the drivetrain. Read More
