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

2000HP Texas Mile Corvette Z06

October 7th, 2015

This video is brought to us courtesy of KP Racing in Houston, Texas. It features Kelly Bise’s Chevrolet Corvette Z06 during dyno testing. In factory trim the Z06 is legendary by any standard but this little cream-puff is extraordinary in its own right. With a 427-cubic-inch Chevrolet LS engine, twin Pro-Mod 88-millimeter turbochargers, a 300-shot of nitrous, and a highly modified T56 transmission (with a custom-built 4-disc carbon-fiber clutch), Kelly has ambitions of claiming the Corvette record later this year during the Texas Mile event. If everything goes as planned, this car that is built specifically for the standing mile, could Read More

1600WHP Supra Street and Dyno

September 23rd, 2015

Get a load of the Real Street built Toyota Supra, custom tuned by Jay Meagher. Despite having cold a/c and being very well behaved on the street, this Toy had quite a successful year at the strip. He even deflowered an Underground Lambo during TX2K. Today it racks up 1,603whp on the dyno! Check out the setup below. It all begins with a RS1600 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine (with 10/1 compression), a Brian Crower 94mm billet stroker crank, Real Street Max Effort CP pistons, DLC coated wrist pins, Manley Tuff connecting rods, Real Street billet main bearing caps with ARP Read More

Viper TA Takes On 1000HP Nissan GT-R

September 17th, 2015

The DriverMod Viper TA is unleashed! That’s right – it is not chained to a dyno this time – it’s taking it to the streets against another radically modified beast of an automobile. Aptly named “Godzilla”, the Nissan GT-R is one of the most feared machines on the street. As a bonus, they are running against a stock Honda CBR1000 motorcycle. As seen a few days ago on DragTimes, the Viper TA engine is stock with an intake manifold upgrade, exhaust headers, and a 250 shot of Nitrous Outlet giggling gas. It is riding on CCW C12 racing wheels and Read More

1200HP Shelby GT500 Dyno Run

September 16th, 2015

Check out the heavily modified KP Performance Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as it gets put through the paces on the dynamometer. The Big Blue Oval may not be known for mind-numbing power but this is one mean ‘Stang. The first dyno pass nets 1,012hp and 1.047 lb.-ft. of torque. After a few tweaks, it manages 1.027hp and 1,176 lb.-ft. of torque. By the way, it is running on E85 fuel. This pony has a Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger, L&M built 5.0-liter small block Ford engine (bored and Darden sleeved to 5.4-liters) with Diamond pistons, and a 200 shot of nitrous. Read More

Dodge Viper TA with 250 Shot of Nitrous on the Dyno

September 12th, 2015

Check out this Dodge Viper TA with a 250 shot of nitrous making some pulls on a DynoJet Dyno.   Before adding Nitrous the Viper already had some mild modifications (headers, exhaust, tune) and put down 623 horsepower and 589 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels. After adding the Nitrous Outlet 250 shot the Viper put down 879 horsepower and 903 ft-lbs of torque, an impressive 256 horsepower pickup.  Since traction would be an obvious  issue, they added a set of CCW wheels with Mickey Thompason tires to keep the power down. A few races are already waiting for the Read More
