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

1300HP Diamond in the Rough

September 1st, 2015

This clip introduces us to an all-wheel drive 1300hp Diamond Star Motors car prepared by Holland Performance out of Spokane, Washington. The event is the 1/8th-mile Outlaw Armageddon No-Prep Invitational weekend and there are some major competitors in attendance. This little Mitsubishi will have to be “on like hotcakes” to put forth a decent showing in this elite crowd. Under the hood, you will find a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with aluminum connecting rods and a stock cylinder head. It also has a massive Precision 8685 turbocharger (running somewhere between 60 and 70-pounds of boost) and a skillfully crafted custom-fabricated intercooler setup. Custom made Read More

9,000 RPM Rotary Powered Mazda Belches Flames

August 27th, 2015

It seems that every time you see a Mazda RX7 racing on the streets these days, there is a Chevrolet LS engine under the hood. Despite the rugged reliability of the 1.3-liter rotary power plant, most racers opt for the added cubic inches of a V8. Honestly, I would be tempted to do the same. So, it is sort of refreshing (and rare) when you run across an RX7 that sports the original (albeit radically modified) rotary engine. This little import features a ball bearing T6 turbocharger (turned way down). It is making 700hp and it is yet to be Read More

Dyno Testing a Blown Methanol Monster

August 26th, 2015

Everyone knows that the guys at Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) are pushing the envelope to the very edge with regards to maximum performance. This video shows you just how far these professionals are willing to go to extrapolate every ounce of horsepower from the last cubic inch of their popular handcrafted, custom built crate motors. Running a dynamometer is a risky proposition, even when the engine is bolted into a chassis, but when you are talking about testing loose supercharged engines anything can happen. Now add in copious amounts of a volatile and highly combustible fuel known as methanol-alcohol and Read More

Ultimate Street Race Upset! Supra vs Lamborghini

August 24th, 2015

This is a “must see” and hear video. These cars look great and sound even better. In lane one, we have a 2011 TT Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggarra, dyno tested at over 1,700hp. In lane two, a 1,500hp turbocharged Toyota Supra with a Powerglide transmission. It sounds like disaster for the Supra but what happens next is why they actually run the races. The Lambo is equipped with an RS2 twin turbo package and actually delivers 1,775 horsepower to the wheels. All-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission make sure that traction is never an issue. Meanwhile, the Read More

August 20th, 2015

So, you like things a little abnormal? You having pains for something strange? This Chevrolet powered BMW should be good for what ails you. You will be hard pressed to find another European sports coupe that is “hitting a lick” like this. Check out all the fun, as this well heeled Beamer gets better and better as the day wears on and turns the best times of the day in the cool temps that darkness brings to the New Mexico night. There is a 355-cubic-inch Chevrolet V8 crammed under that hood, with a huge roots-style supercharger mounted on top. Power Read More
