Honda Powered MR-2 Runs First 8-Second Quarter-Mile

October 23rd, 2020

This video answers the decade old question of “what can I do to make my tiny mid-engine sports car faster”? The answer for Toyota MR-2 owner Kyle Wade and his BoostedBoiz crew was to scrap the Toyota mill and replace it with a Honda unit. Just add a pair of massive turbochargers and – kaboom! – you are ready to dominate the competition. No matter who you are – quarter-mile passes in the 8-second range are pretty impressive in most circles. Kyle says that this Toyota is running a built and sleeved K24 (2.4-liter) Honda engine with a cylinder head Read More

Record Breaking Honda S2000 – Half-Mile Airstrip Attack

October 9th, 2020

The standing half-mile is an excellent test of top speed and durability. The 2020 Indy Airstrip Attack attracted some of the most capable half-mile machines in the country.

Car owner Stuart Leiby and T1 Race Development have built a record shattering Honda S2000 without even swapping the engine. Under the hood is the stock F22C1 DOHC Vortec motor (block and crankshaft) with a 68-millimeter Xona Rotor turbocharger.

1000HP Turbo Charger Hellcat – Street Hits

June 2nd, 2020

No, your eyes have not failed you – this Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat sedan is rocking a turbocharger and a supercharger. Whoa! Wait a minute. While there is a supercharger bolted between the cylinder heads, it is only being used as an intake manifold. It has a belt but no guts inside. A turbocharger has taken its place as the sole source of forced air induction. The stock (6.2-liter HEMI) engine block has been upgraded with performance pistons and connecting rods. The crankshaft is factory, but the camshaft has also been upgraded. The turbocharger is a Borg Warner S488 SX-E Read More
