April 15th, 2021

You cant’ help but love the Chevy El Camino. After all, it’s half car, half-truck and all fun. Nicknamed the Mullet. the El Camino that Cleetus and crew have built is a particularly prime example. Purpose built for drag racing, this eighties “caruck” is nearing the end stages of an exemplary build. Today, we get to drop in at the shop as they fire it up and take it to the street. Buckle up. Making the Mullet go is a professionally built 7.0-liter all-aluminum LS motor. It has the best of everything that it takes to go fast, including a Read More

E85 Jeep Trackhawk vs. Acura NSX – Street Dig Pass

April 13th, 2021

This clip just goes to show that you never know what you will roll up against on the street. You can’t blame a guy (or gal) for wanting to push the limits of their new sports car. How else are you going to know what it will do? However, a spoonful of discretion may save you a truck load of embarrassment if you call out the wrong sled. First, ask what modifications have been performed on your potential victim. Most hot-rodders and gearheads will tell you all about what has been done to their precious ride. Next, just listen.

Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel. This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. Read More

Big Turbo Little Motor Mustang

April 1st, 2021

So, this video is a little different than the normal huge cubic inch, massive power adder, gas guzzling monster machine chronicle. This clip features a Mustang EcoBoost with a big turbo upgrade. It’s a daily driver, weekend warrior and general street sleeper. The car belongs to Ariel and he’s going to tell us all about it. First, we need to set the foundation. The EcoBoost is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that makes 310hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory. In a Mustang, it’s a fun little motor with adequate power for everyday driving. That is especially true Read More

Ultimate Resto Mod – 1987 Buick Grand National

March 17th, 2021

Regarded by enthusiasts as one of the premier performance vehicles of the late 1980s, the Buick Grand National featured a 3.8-liter turbocharged (intercooled) V6 engine, a blacked out paint scheme and a menacing stance. Fortunately for us, that just wasn’t enough for the owner (Frank) of this particular G-Body. Let’s have a look under the hood and see what Frank has going on. This is a beautiful example of a 1987 Buick Grand National. It has been passed down to Frank from his uncle. Frank plans to give it to his son – one day. For the Grand National, 1987 Read More

463WHP All Motor Fox Body Mustang – Dyno and Street

January 28th, 2021

What red-blooded gearhead doesn’t relish the thought of upgrading a classic or vintage vehicle with a potent late model powertrain? It’s even better when all the components remain true to the manufacturer and model line. That’s just what 1992 Ford Mustang owner Mac Guido has accomplished with his stunning Fox Body project. Better yet – Mac did all the work himself. Have a gander for yourself. Certainly not a Mustang purist, Mac previously had a Toyota 2JZ setup in this blue beauty. After he was bitten by the V8 bug, Mac decided to go with a naturally aspirated Gen III Read More

Ride Along – 450HP Supercharged Cop Car

December 24th, 2020

Time to hit the streets for a ride along in a modified Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor called Casper the Ghost. Barney Fife ain’t got nothing on this guy. He’s rocking a stock 4.6-liter modular motor with a Vortech supercharger and intercooler setup. Even though the blower is only set to produce 8 psi of boost, this big sedan is getting the ponies to the ground via a Tremec T-56 6-speed manual transmission (Center Force dual-friction clutch), and the lower gear ratio helps to come off the line like a bullet. Maximum output is estimated at 450hp. That’s double the Read More

Beer Money Mustang – Extreme Turbo LS No Prep Monster

December 12th, 2020

You may remember the Beer Money Mustang from the cable television shows Horsepower Wars and Fastest Car – where it won all the marbles en route to fame and fortune. After taking the 1986 Fox Body pony car out on the No Prep circuit, the hard charging Bigun Crew blew the engine and rendered the car immobile. Months later, the Beer Money Ford is back on the dragstrip with a lighter and faster turbocharged LS3 (Chevrolet) motor. With the new setup dialed in, the guys take to the track. Time to see how they fare. Built by Harrell Engine and Read More
