Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More

Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016

The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

880HP Turbo Toyota Corolla Trueno

June 16th, 2016

This is one crazy fabrication. It’s a Toyota Corolla Trueno outfitted with a turbocharged Honda 2.0-liter F22 engine and a stock S2 transmission. The F22 is standard equipment in the Honda S2000 sports car but this one comes with a long list of embellishments. First, there’s a Garrett 6765 turbocharger with a HiBoost manifold taking care of the forced air induction. The engine has been upgraded with custom connecting rods and stock pistons, as well as a camshaft (DOHC) and valvetrain upgrade. It’s got a MagnaFuel fuel pump, an AEM fuel rail and a set of 2150 fuel injectors providing Read More

Money Race – Tesla P85DL vs Dodge Viper SRT10

June 2nd, 2016

Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily. Next, we have roll racing from 20 to 120 mph and the Dodge wins. After that, they begin at 45 mph and the Viper bests the Tesla again. Dig racing is next and Read More

Shocker – Honda Civic vs. Lamborghini Gallardo

May 16th, 2016

If someone told me that a Honda Civic beat a Lamborghini Gallardo on the street or strip, I’d think they were being less than honest. If I saw this unlikely sight on a local interstate, I’d believe that I needed to drink less or have my eyes checked. However, there just is no arguing with video. The Civic coupe weighs in at 2,100-pounds and is equipped with a sleeved K20 2.0-liter Honda VTEC engine with a 6262 Precision turbocharger. It’s making around 700hp. The hatchback has a similar setup, except it has an ERL block and a 66-millimeter turbocharger. The Read More

900HP MR2 Tames the Arizona Streets

April 22nd, 2016

Now, get this! This Toyota MR2 (mid-engine setup) is equipped with a Honda drivetrain. That includes a K20 2.0-liter engine that has been fitted with dart racing sleeves, JE Pistons, Manley valve train components, a stock cylinder head (camshaft upgrade), and a 66-millimeter turbo making between 25 and 36-pounds of boost. The combination is capable of churning out over 900hp and it is shifted using a sequential transmission. Right out of the gate, this Toyota dusts a 700hp Evo, then rubs up against a GXR1000 sportbike. The Suzuki ain’t having none of it and whips the MR2 handily. Then he Read More

3-Wide Street Racing – GT500 vs Corvette vs Honda

April 21st, 2016

This is straight-up, 3-wide street racing action between a couple of power house sports cars and a Honda. First, the big dogs line-up for some 60mph roll racing. After the GT500 gets through skinning the ‘Vette, the Chevy takes out his pent-up aggression on the Honda in progress. This black beauty Mustang GT500 has a built engine with the camshaft and cylinder heads upgraded; plus there’s a giant 4.2-liter (that’s almost as big as the 5.0-liter engine) Kenne Belle supercharger bolted on top. Horsepower is estimated at 1,000. The Corvette C6Z is equipped with a 100-shot of laughing gas and Read More

Import Street Shootout – Mitsubishi Evo vs. Honda Civic

April 7th, 2016

Import aficionados will really appreciate this video. Roll racing is the order of the day and there’s a well put together Mitsubishi that’s beating the brakes off everything. There is also several bonus runs with various imports making a Mustang Cobra look pretty weak. The main event is between a 500hp Civic and the aforementioned Evolution. The Honda is trying to get dialed-in (and the Mitsubishi is giving him ample opportunity) but the Evo is quite a hand-full. The Mitsubishi is running a built 2.0-liter engine block (stock cylinder head) with upgraded camshafts and a twin-scroll Precision 6070 dual ball-bearing Read More

Roll Racing – Acura vs Audi

March 18th, 2016

I don’t know about you, but when I see any Acura (short of possibly an NSX) line up against a twin turbocharged Audi R8, the last thing that I expect is for the Acura to emerge victorious. After all the TT R8 (in factory trim) has built a sterling reputation as a high performance contender and this particular car has been modified to produce 1,000hp. So, what’s a poor little Integra left to do? Fret not; this is no ordinary Acura. It’s running a Precision 6466 turbocharger, a Motec ECU, and is shifting through a Dogbox transmission. Since the Acura Read More
