1970 Camaro SS Restomod – The Build

March 17th, 2018

It requires but a glance to see that this is no ordinary Gen II Camaro SS. Thanks to the Roadster Shop, what was once a dirty, greasy, rusted, and forgotten muscle car is transformed into the masterpiece which is the focus of this video. It begins with a total teardown of the unibody car and fashioning a fully-boxed, chrome moly chassis and custom Roadster Shop Fast Track suspension. The factory sheet metal was reasonably straight but is now flawless and a fully functional wide body kit makes this a Camaro that you will never forget. Under the hood, there was Read More

Quickest Stock (Bottom End) Pickup

January 24th, 2018

This video takes us through a world record quarter-mile pass (stock bottom end LS engine) and the ensuing tear down to prove it so. Horsepower Solutions – Team North – and friends have gone to great lengths to squeeze every bit of horsepower possible from a turbocharged (Garrett 91-millimeter) LS motor with a factory crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons.    After making a record breaking quarter-mile pass of 7.16-seconds @ 190 mph, the LS motor was removed from the pro mod style chassis and torn down to the short block (intake and exhaust manifolds removed, cylinder heads removed, and oil Read More

TT 1964 Dodge Polara Rat Rod

November 29th, 2017

This video takes us (step-by-step) through the drastic rebuild of a rusted out 1964 Dodge Polara. Proving that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, the crew at Roadster Shop (Mundelein, IL) transformed this eyesore into a radical racing machine. Check it out. This car belongs to Jesse James – custom motorcycle magnate from Huntington Beach, CA – and not the legendary outlaw or the tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jesse is widely known for building custom bikes, cars, knives, and almost anything else that can be crafted with a little skill and a lot of elbow grease. Whether Read More

2.000HP 1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

July 21st, 2017

This fantastic looking 1965 Chevy C10 is being purpose-built to rule the street racing scene in the hometown of a guy named Chris Red – something or other. At the heart of this beast is a 400 cubic-inch, LS based, Dart Racing block. In order to make the LS durable enough to withstand this massive amount (2,187hp @ 6,900 RPM)) of horsepower, Steve Morris Engines has recently gone through the engine and they are currently in the process of tuning it (with owner, Chris R.) in their state-of-the-art dyno facility. It has a specially ground hydraulic roller camshaft with a Read More

426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

June 21st, 2017

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

Cowboy Corvette – 650HP Silverado

May 25th, 2017

What’s an old saddle tramp to do when he has a Corvette heart and a Pickup life? That’s exactly where Bruce Lethco was at in his own life. What made matters even worse is that Bruce’s wife was dead set against him having a high-powered sports car. Along about there is when he discovered Armageddon. No, not the bloody end-of-times battle but Armageddon Turbo Systems. Bruce’s 2014 Chevy Silverado was pretty powerful, according to pickup truck standards, but keep in mind that old Bruce has a Corvette heart. Luckily for him, Armageddon hooked him up with a twin turbo system Read More

Making a Four-Wheeled Honda Fast

April 28th, 2017

The owner of the Honda S2000 featured in this video has a desire to help his fellow import owners. He wants to show us all how to make our import street and strip cars get down the track a lot faster. He accomplishes his mission within the first 30-seconds of the clip but you will want to stay for the hot drag racing action. This post is coming at you from beautiful, sunny Orlando, Florida (east coast home of Mickey Mouse) and the Street Car Takeover. As soon as the hood on the bright red Honda is opened, anyone can Read More

Speed Guide – Building a TT 2017 Mustang GT

April 21st, 2017

This clip does a great job of walking you through the making of a 675hp, twin turbocharged street beast. What makes it even better is that the car’s cute owner leads the way. Stephanie, who makes a wonderful tour guide, was not happy with her 400hp Mustang GT. Unlike most car owners, who just belly-ache and drive on, Steph decided to make some powerful changes. This video takes you through some of these changes – step-by-step. There is even a dyno comparison at the end. The 2017 Mustang GT was subjected to a set of airbags to achieve just the right Read More

No Prep Turbo V8 Nissan 240sx

March 25th, 2017

This video features exactly the type of vehicle that gets my blood pumping. I love taking a small and lightweight, rear-wheel drive car and putting in a big, V8 engine with at least one power adder. If you do it right – and this guy has apparently done it just right – you can win a lot of races (cash) on the street and strip. For this type of hybrid build, the Nissan 240 has long been a favorite of amateur and street racers. There are four major reasons for this: The sharp looking little import bodies are readily available Read More

Budget Built Twin Turbo Corvette Street Mauler

January 3rd, 2017

Who needs a Z06 or a ZR1? This industrious street racer has taken what was a bare bones C6 and turned it into a street mauler – without breaking the bank. The secret is – as you have ascertained from the title – forced air induction from a pair of massive turbochargers. The Corvette C6 begins life as an interesting enough naturally aspirated sports car. The factory engine was a 6.0-liter LS2 that could catapult the ‘Vette from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2-seconds but it didn’t have the durability that this racer was after. Out comes the car engine Read More
