V6 Turbo Swapped Nissan 240sx – Build Tips and Street Hits

May 29th, 2020

Greetings speed enthusiasts and other gearheads. Allow me to introduce Andre Cargrill and his Ugly Duckling. Andrew has been 15-years building the version of the Ugly Duckling that hits the streets (of Mexico) today. Last time we saw Andrew’s car, a 1995 Nissan S14 240sx, it was equipped with a turbocharged Nissan KA four-cylinder engine. The four-banger was more than adequate – and Andrew builds a really nice ride – but he wanted a little more. Now, the duck is powered by an Infiniti (Nissan) VQ35HR V6 motor with a massive turbo. Numerous modifications were necessary for the chassis of Read More

Infiniti vs. GT-R – Street Hits

October 5th, 2019

by: Julianna Baron So, here’s the sit rep: We have an Infiniti G35 that looks (inside and out) like it just came from the junk yard. The interior (and wiring) is torn up and the exterior looks like it has been in a demolition derby. It is rough. Thing is, it has undergone an engine upgrade and it has a big turbo strapped to it. Sure, it ain’t the neatest job but it’s getting 1,000hp to the wheels. That’s according to the owner. In an effort to quiet the naysayers, he has called out a modified Nissan R35 GT-R. Unlike the Read More

Junkyard Dog – Pontiac Firebird on AWD GT-R Chassis

July 10th, 2019

When Gregg (lead technician for the Hoonigan Racing Division) decided to build a retromod of his own, you just knew that it would be something unique and awesome. Well, it does not disappoint. First, Gregg spotted a rusted-out hull from a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am. It had been sitting in a desert (just outside Vegas) for more than a decade. Full of tumbleweeds and sand, the body actually had a river running through it at one time. Gregg pulled the forgotten Thunder Chicken out of the cactus den and took it home to begin its rebirth. Never wanting to blend Read More

Battle for Germany – Mercedes-Benz vs. Porsche

August 28th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to be tasked with determining which of these two high-performance German sports cars is the absolute best? A road test, a track run, and finally an all out drag race will provide the data used to arrive at which of these awesome rides is superior. The first entry is the stunning Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. With its long front end and sleek lines, the AMG GT is truly a menacing sports coupe. Under the hood, a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 is capable of producing 510hp. The other entry is the Porsche 911 GTS. In typical Porsche fashion, this Read More

Crazy 900HP Hellcat – Street Rolls

July 27th, 2017

This kitty has dangerously sharp claws. The Dodge Hellcat Charger is the most potent sedan ever produced (in stock trim). Our feature car is not only wrapped in a wild paint scheme, it has undergone some major enhancements under the hood. The Tar Heel State (of Mexico) is home to some seriously competitive street racing. This time, we are taking to the highway for elite roll racing action and there are some heavy hitters in attendance. Of course, the star of this video is the 900hp Hellcat but there are also a set of impressive Nissan GT-Rs, some quality Corvettes, Read More

Is FWD Faster? 950HP Civic

July 7th, 2017

With a built 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, engine  and a 6785 twin-scroll turbocharger, this Honda Civic is taking on V8 powered Mustangs and Camaros with reckless abandonment. Not only is he taking them on – he’s whipping them in the majority of his races. Helping the underdog import to surprise all those V8 jockeys is a wild looking custom intake manifold from KS Tuned in Kennewick, WA and dual (2 per cylinder) 2000cc ID fuel injectors. Today the little Honda that could is running in the Banger Class at Chi-Town’s King of the Streets. This is a class set up for cars with Read More

Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

March 22nd, 2017

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

Mongoose – 680WHP Nissan 240SX

July 6th, 2016

The featured car in this video has the uncommon ability to tear up the drag strip and stick to the curves like a mouse to a glue-trap. The owner campaigns this beauty on the local 1/4-mile one weekend and runs the heck out of the regional road course the next. This thing is scary fast with neck-snapping torque. This rear-wheel drive coupe is equipped with a 2JZ-GTE Toyota engine, a transmission from an Infiniti G35,  and a rear differential from an Infiniti Q45. It has been treated to an extensive porting and polishing job (intake manifold, exhaust headers, and cylinder Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a Read More

Street Envy – 750hp TT Green Camaro

August 18th, 2015

Check out this fantastic looking emerald green fifth-generation Camaro. This thing will have you green with envy – street envy, that is. A Hellion twin turbo kit with an AMS 2000 boost controller, a Psycho performance tuner, a camshaft upgrade, and a 3600 RPM stall converter are among the highlighted modifications on this bad Bowtie. The engine is a stock 6.2-liter. The Camaro makes short work of the first two competitors; a souped-up TT Infiniti G35 and a 685hp supercharged Ford Lightning F150 pickup. The final matchup proved to be a bit more of a challenge, though. The 750hp Mitsubishi Read More
