1965 Mercury Comet – 10-Second Junkyard Build

December 31st, 2019

It ain’t how you look. It’s what you have under the hood! Well, this 1965 Mercury Comet Coupe is packing a load under there. Nope. She ain’t gonna win any beauty prize. Her sheet metal is far from straight and her paint hasn’t been shiny in many moons. Nevertheless, there’s a certain charm to this old girl. Could it be the massive chunk of iron under the hood? This is the biggest of the Ford big block engines – a 460 cubic-inch monster. This is the kind of mill that only came in huge station wagons and pickup trucks, but Read More

Restomod Mustang – Best of Old and New

December 20th, 2019

What do you get when you take the very best aesthetic details of a 1970 Mustang Fastback – then add the very best modern performance parts (including a Chevy engine) of today? Take a look at this video for the answer. This is one beautiful classic muscle car that performs like a late model race car. It’s called the Ruffian Mustang. Check it out. Believe it or not, it all began with a rusted out daily driver Mustang. Nothing special here; just a run-of-the-mill powertrain, stock chassis and porous sheet metal. After the body is separated from the frame, the Read More

CTS-V Kong Blower Swap – Dyno, Street and Strip

November 22nd, 2019

Joey and the crew at Race Proven Motorsports (RPM) have built a Cadillac that kills on the street and strip. Despite being modified with some of the best performance goodies available, this video takes us through the process of a supercharger upgrade. This 2011 Cadillac CTS-V will be shedding the factory blower for a brand-new Kong 2650 blower. There is a lot to love about this product. Let’s take a look. This cruiser already has a Texas Speed and Performance 416 cubic-inch engine with a set of LS9 cylinder heads by Advanced Induction. The camshaft is an RPM custom grind. Read More

Brown Sugar – Turbo LS Swapped Olds Cutlass

November 19th, 2019

Wanna see what ‘off the beaten path’ looks like? In this video it looks like a 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (with a landau top). It sounds more like a Camaro or a Corvette. Could be the LS swap. Hmmm. Let’s have a closer look. This G-Body has got a lot under the hood. It all begins with a built 6.0-liter LS (Chevy) engine. Internals include aftermarket racing pistons, connecting rods and valvetrain components. It also has a generic turbocharger (a big one) with an air-to-air intercooler (also huge). The combo is good for 1000hp. Shifting is handled via a powerglide Read More

Sweet Ford F-150 – Turbo Coyote Masterpiece

November 13th, 2019

You won’t hear me say it often, but this truck is a work of art. The owner has built a real showstopper of an F-150 using a Ford powertrain and a combination of OEM and aftermarket performance parts. The exterior is outstanding with Recon lighting and tastefully modified OEM badging, this thing is sleek and low. Slicks out back are on 17-inch wheels and the fronts are 20s. The interior is a pilot’s dream. Seriously comfortable racing seats and harnesses round out the look that says, “all business”. The engine is a modular Coyote 5.0-liter with a BOSS factory intake.

Step by Step – 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner-Hellcat

October 25th, 2019

The HELLRUNNER is a full blown, body off restomod performed expertly by Fast Freddie’s Rod Shop in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Fast Freddie takes us in a step-by-step journey to unite style and speed. The 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner is a snapshot of muscle car heyday. The Chrysler Hellcat drivetrain achieved legendary status the instant it rolled off the assembly line in 2015. Marrying these two icons was more a matter of “when” than “if”. Believe it or not, this entire project begins with a barn find (I must be looking in the wrong barns). The Mopar was discovered sitting under a Read More

Turbo GMC Sierra – Double the Output

October 14th, 2019

Greetings drag racing fans and speed freaks of every ilk. So, you want to go fast but just can’t shake the appeal of your full-size pickup? I can relate. What if you could retain the stock appearance of your GMC/Chevrolet Sierra/Silverado and double the horsepower? I say, heck yeah. Just sell me the recipe. Well, here it is for free. This video takes us on a journey – from stock to totally outrageous. It all begins with a bone stock 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 2WD with a 5.3-liter V8 engine and an automatic transmission. From the factory, this tough truck Read More

Low Rider – Twin Turbo Galaxie 500

August 27th, 2019

Call them whatever you like; gearheads, hot-rodders, a speed shop, performance shop or a racing station – fact is that Bones Fab is creating art. All it takes is a little time, a lot of know-how and a big pile of cash. Bones took this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 and turned into an absolute restomod monster. First impression? This car is huge! It’s 19-feet long and (even with significant weight reduction strategy in play) weighs in at approximately two-tons. Luckily, these guys have off set the girth with raw horsepower. Under the hood is a Robert Pond Motorsports SOHC 7.0-liter, Read More

10-Second Chevrolet Camaro Z28 – Track Digs

August 23rd, 2019

Nothing complicated about building a 10-second car. Not according to these guys, anyway. No turbochargers, no superchargers, not even any nitrous; just good, old-fashioned, bottom-end grunt and a great deal of consistency. Can you say truck motor? How about 5.3-liters of naturally aspirated V8 LS1? This stunner has stock cylinder heads, an Ed Curtis camshaft, a Fast 92/92 (Texas Speed) intake manifold/throttle body combo and it’s tuned by Nishan (New Jersey). The transmission is a 4L60E automatic (Yank SS4000 torque converter) and the rear end is a stock 10-bolt with a 3.42:1 final drive gear ratio. Right off the trailer, Read More

Black Beauty – 900WHP Buick Regal V6

July 18th, 2019

In 1987, the fastest American made production car was not powered by a V8 engine. The car was the Buick Grand National GNX and the engine was a 3.8-liter V6 with a turbocharger. Nothing spectacular but enough push to put them on top of the heap. Meet Jerry. He loves Grand Nationals and owns three. Today, Jerry has agreed to walk us through his pride and joy. It’s a 1987 GN with only 36k miles on the chassis. The running gear has even less. It’s still a V6 but it has been fortified with all the best internal components. Jerry Read More
