Turbo Four-Cylinder vs. All-Motor V8 – 60 MPH Street Hits

December 2nd, 2022

Tonight, these brave competitors risk shame, humiliation and hurt feelings as they stroll onto the interstate (in Mexico). Allegedly, the owner of a modified V8 Ford Mustang 5.0 has been overheard talking a load of smack about a certain four-cylinder Mopar/DSM turbo car. True or not, they are about to lay it all on the line in a head-to-head grudge race. It’ll be a rolling start initiated at 60 mph. The Dodge Neon SRT-4 is a bit of a sleeper. In fact, with four doors and an unassuming exhaust note, this grocery getter is almost comatose. Don’t get it twisted, Read More

As any gearhead will tell you, increasing horsepower and improving performance can be an addictive scenario. Unfortunately, it can also become very expensive.

Emelia’s Supercharged 10-Liter V8 Mustang Hits the Street

November 15th, 2022

So, we had the privilege of joining pretty Emelia Hartford as she built her massive 10-liter V8 supercharged Ford engine. Now, she has the engine back in the car and she’s ripping to burn up some tires. Here’s a brief review of the engine build. Emelia started with a bare cast iron block and a set of pre-assembled heads. She began by stuffing the bottom end with tons of go-fast goodies. Everything from Tron pistons to I-beam connecting rods to ARP fasteners went into the belly of this beast. The aluminum cylinder heads are Kaase P51, and they are ported Read More

November 12th, 2022

Tonight, we are taking this show south of the border for some roll racing action. About fifty of our closest friends have gathered to go all out on the asphalt.
