N/A Vette Z06 Takes on Ninja ZX14 – Street Hits

December 18th, 2019

Once in a while, it’s refreshing to see a car that is built without power-adders. Turbochargers, superchargers and nitrous are great, but nothing accelerates quite like an engine built with the sole purpose of producing horsepower. In today’s environment of economical turbo and super chargers, this all-motor ‘Vette is making his mark. The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 has a (LS7) 7.0-liter engine. Internals are stock except for Diamond (14:1) pistons. Cylinder heads, camshaft, intake manifold and fuel rail are all Frankenstein. Fuel injectors are by FIC and the cold air intake is a Vararam. Exhaust headers are Kooks 2-inch Read More

Sweet Ford F-150 – Turbo Coyote Masterpiece

November 13th, 2019

You won’t hear me say it often, but this truck is a work of art. The owner has built a real showstopper of an F-150 using a Ford powertrain and a combination of OEM and aftermarket performance parts. The exterior is outstanding with Recon lighting and tastefully modified OEM badging, this thing is sleek and low. Slicks out back are on 17-inch wheels and the fronts are 20s. The interior is a pilot’s dream. Seriously comfortable racing seats and harnesses round out the look that says, “all business”. The engine is a modular Coyote 5.0-liter with a BOSS factory intake.

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

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.
