New GT-R Half-Mile World Record

November 30th, 2015

The place is Texas and the event is WannaGoFast2015. The Nissan GT-R is a familiar one. It is campaigned by T1 Racing Development and the contest in question is the standing half-mile. You don’t want to miss this clip because it includes a world record setting pass (half-mile GT-R) at 235.6 mph. This shatters the previous record and narrowly misses the overall record held by Underground Racing. Propulsion for the current record holding coupe comes from a 3.8-liter stock displacement V6 engine with a custom billet crankshaft, custom billet pistons, and aluminum connecting rods. Forced air induction is achieved using Read More

America’s Fastest Scion

November 25th, 2015

Get a load of Pure Automotive Performance’s lime green FR-S campaigning at the World Cup Finals in Maryland. This is one artfully crafted drag car. It ends up with a North America record setting 9.2-second quarter-mile run at 150 mph. Under the hood of this FR-S you’ll find a turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ (Toyota) engine being force fed copious amounts of air via a Precision 67-millimeter turbocharger. The custom crafted intercooler and piping are immaculate on this ride and so is the interior. Pure Automotive certainly knows how to put the nuts and bolts together. Power for this fantastic looking ride Read More

Turbo 2JZ-GTE Equipped Mustang

November 23rd, 2015

What the …? This great looking Ford Mustang doesn’t have a built 429 Cobra Jet and there’s no turbocharged 5.3-liter LS motor. Instead, this little American beauty has a junkyard Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE thrashing about under the hood. What’s even more interesting is that this thing made it all the way to the semi-final round of the Kansas City F-Body Event. The 2JZ-GTE is an inline 6-cylinder and the one in this pony car is bone stock. A massive 76-millimeter turbocharger does most of the work. It is accompanied by a Pro EFI controller and power is transferred to the Read More

Drag Race – Porsche 918 vs Stunt Plane

November 20th, 2015

Have you ever seen a car that could whip a plane in a race? Well, this video shows you a Porsche that has everything it takes to gut it out against a plane and win by a nose. This is a close contest that showcases this revolutionary little stunt plane (called the Christen Eagle II) performing a handful of aerobatic stunts, then getting spanked by a ground-bound craft.

Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

November 19th, 2015

Momma always said, “Nobody likes a whiner” but Mom, there are times when a good whine can be quite pleasant. For instance, when this killer white Lamborghini Huracan rounds the bend and you hear a startling whine as he jams on the accelerator and plants the rubber to the pavement. That whine is from a Eaton TVS2300 roots type supercharger sitting atop a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The entire package is produced by VF Engineering from Anaheim, California. This Lambo is also equipped with a 6061 aluminum intake manifold with an internal bypass and high-flow dual throttle bodies with high-flow MAF Read More

Check out Mad Mike’s four-rotor Mazda Miata at the 2015 SEMA Show. This unique roadster is setup for drift racing and it is on display in the Garrett Turbochargers booth. Mad Mike is a native of New Zealand but he makes frequent trips to the U.S. to compete in Formula Drift events. With its four rotor engine configuration and a pair of Garrett GTX 40 turbos, this car sounds awesome. Sure, you could build a high-powered V8 for a fraction of the cost but there is something to be said for originality. This specially designed rotary Mazda engine certainly has Read More

Turbo Supra Takes On a Yamaha R1M in a Street Race

November 13th, 2015

It hasn’t been all that many years ago that jumping on a street bike in a four-wheeler was considered absurd. With the development of today’s turbochargers, nitrous systems, and superchargers (or the combination thereof), it is nothing for a car to walk the dog on even a highly modified motorcycle. The question is: Can this Real Street built Toyota Supra get the bulge on an enhanced Yamaha R1M? Take a look at this video and find out for yourself. The sport bike has undergone some cylinder head work. It has adjustable camshaft sprockets, an Akrapovic exhaust, and a custom tuner. Read More
