JDM Supercar Shootout – Nissan vs. Toyota

April 5th, 2018

In the spirit of transparency, there are actually a pair of JDM Nissans on this clip. One is setup more for circuit racing than street racing but still has some bite. Both are similarly outstanding to look at and both are right-hand drive but there are differences. The 1996 (R34) Nissan Skyline GT-R has been equipped with a Precision 6266 turbocharger, oversize fuel injectors, Haltech stand-alone controller, and it’s running E85 fuel. It is capable of producing approximately 750whp. It will have the opportunity to take on some “old school” V8 (supercharged) horsepower in the form of a Cadillac CTS-V Read More

8-Second LS Swapped Lexus

March 2nd, 2018

Competing in the True Street Class, this Lexus IS 300 takes the term Performance Compact Sedan in a whole new direction. Noticeably absent is the factory 6-cylinder engine. A big old (5.3-liter) Chevrolet LS V8 (all-aluminum) engine has taken its place. Also present is a massive Garrett (88-millimeter) turbocharger with minimal piping and accessories. Shifting duties are handled via a powerglide transmission. The crew from Dedicated Motorsports (Round Rock, Texas) has worked tirelessly to get this crazy creation to hook up and blast through the trap in a semi-straight line. They have showed up at Street Car Takeover Oklahoma with Read More

Crazy Twin Turbo LS Powered Lexus IS300

November 10th, 2016

Like most drag racing fans, the prospect of a big engine in a really small and lightweight car is intriguing to me. It all began for me way back when with a built (four-bolt mains of course) small block Chevy engine in a Chevrolet Vega, nicknamed “Cherry Bomb” because it exploded through the 1320. Unfortunately, those Vegas are getting pretty difficult to find at a reasonable price. The good news is that lightweight import shells are out there and they’re a dime a dozen. If you have some mechanical aptitude and a few fabrication (cutting and welding) skills, you can Read More

9-Second Turbo Lexus

January 18th, 2016

Now you can have it all! This video brings us a luxurious Lexus LS300 that can dart through the 1320 in only 9.32-seconds at 149 mph. This thing smokes tires like they’re going out of style and you have to see the parking lot burnouts (with a trailer attached, no less). It all begins with a built 3.0-liter 2JZ engine with upgraded pistons from Combustion Technologies; now add a mammoth Precision 7675 turbocharger. As if that weren’t enough, toss in a 125 shot of nitrous oxide and presto – you’ve got 1,000whp. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Read More

500HP Mercedes-Benz GTS vs 480HP Lexus RCF

October 12th, 2015

If you are wild about street racing (as I am), then you have to see this head-to-head battle between a stodgy European coupe and a luxurious Japanese coupe. Both have significant upgrades under the hood. The GTS is running a twin turbo setup that yields approximately 500hp. The Lexus is also well heeled with the latest bolt-ons and he claims to be running 480hp. This race is run in three segments; a dig race, a 15 mph take-of, and a 40 mph take-off. In the dig race the Lexus actually gets a slight advantage out of the hole but the Read More

Street Racing Southern Style

September 29th, 2015

Come experience some southern hospitality in the A-T-L. Hot nights are in store and some even hotter street racing action. When the temperatures rise these southern boys (and girls) love to take to the streets in their souped up chariots and ice the competition. You have to see this collection of highly modified top-tier sports cars as they do battle for bragging rights down in Georgia. Roll racing rules apply – with 60 mph starts. First, there is a 650hp Porsche 911 going against a 650hp Nissan Gt-R. This is a closely contested race, then the Porsche tangles with a Read More
