July 12th, 2018

This is the story of Rich and his friend Bill. The two buddies are into cars – bigtime. Rich loves the Pontiac GTO and Bill had a thing for the Ford Fairlane 500. Both car enthusiasts selected a model from the sixties and transformed their respective steeds into a muscle-bound masterpiece. Rich chose a 1965 Poncho (Hurst Package) as his canvas. He built this beast around a 517 cubic-inch Pontiac engine being force fed by a 94-millimeter turbocharger.The combination is capable of producing 1,500hp and has made a best pass of 9.7-seconds @ 147 mph.

Mustang Boss 302 vs. Vette Z06 – Street Hits

June 26th, 2018

What’s better than street racing on the wide open interstates (of Mexico)? Why, roll racing 3-wide down the interstate into the cool night air of course. Theses competitive drivers know how to get down where the rubber meets the road. Their cars have been purpose-built for roll racing and the pilots are ready to put it all on the line. All that’s left is to fuel up and roll out. Our first contest is a triple play between a 620hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a 635hp Cadillac CTS-V sedan, and a 570hp turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am. ZL1 FTW! Next, we have Read More

Sweet Pea – 10-Second Nova Sleeper

June 21st, 2018

In a perfect demonstration of “It ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under the hood” theology; this rusted-out and uglied-up Nova sedan can flat get down the quarter-mile in a hurry. The dominant theme of this clip is that this below average (looking) Nova is virtually indistinguishable from any other oil dripping, brake squealing, gas guzzling grocery getter going about its daily grind. Here’s what makes this Chevy so special: A 6.0-liter Chevy truck engine has been outfitted with a VS Racing 80-millimeter turbocharger and a Coleman Performance (you’ll get that when you watch the video) ice Read More

Unlike a lot of fly-by-night operations, RPM digs down deep into the engine, transmission, and suspension and delivers a high-quality build to push the envelope of power and traction to new heights. Starting with a Chevrolet (C6) Corvette Z06 is a smart bet, The Z06 is built around a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. Of torque. RPM adds a quality engine build along with an F1A Procharger and a trunk-mounted ice water bath. A Holley EFI system delivers plenty of fuel Read More

Blackhawk Trans Am – Drag Radial Class

June 15th, 2018

Baby-faced Joe Hunt must take on a field of twenty-five racers to pick up his first win in the Blackhawk Pontiac WS6 Trans Am. Racing is of the No Prep, drag variety and this is the hottest ticket on the market. The Blackhawk has undergone a dramatic rebirth. It has been transformed from a nitrous car that had little success keeping the front tires on the pavement to a more controllable beast of a twin turbo car. In the past, Joe has gotten close to the prize but just couldn’t quite bring it home. So, will he be able to Read More

Heads Up No Prep – Turbo Acura TL

June 14th, 2018

One of the great things about racing cars is that each competitor has the ability to express themselves through their vehicle. What might seem the farthest from a viable racing solution to most may be a vision in horsepower to another. Such could be said of this pretty blue Acura sedan. Did it begin life as a performance or sports car? Most certainly not. However, it did roll off the assembly line with a Honda VTEC 3.2-liter V6 engine. Can it handle turbocharged horsepower over extended periods of time? Probably not; so car owner Alden built the engine and sleeved Read More

7-Second Dragonfly – 2000HP Fox Body

June 13th, 2018

There are street cars and then there are street cars but this awesome Fox Body Mustang is head and shoulders above the rest. It all begins with a brand-new 7.0-liter big block (LS) Dart Racing engine – prepared by OCHS Performance. Throw on a set of Frankenstein Engine Dynamics (FED) All Pro cylinder heads and a FED intake manifold package with a massive Precision 102-millimeter turbocharger and you are ready for some racing (an undisclosed Nitrous Outlet kit is riding along too). A Strange Engineering rear end helps put all 2,000 of those ponies to the pavement. The intercooler has Read More

World’s Fastest – 201 MPH – Integra

June 12th, 2018

While this clip features the World’s Fastest Acura Integra, it also showcases the best-of-the-best from TX2K18. There has been a ton of coverage for this event but there were so many amazing race cars on hand that it was unbelievable. First, the Acura; it is called Gringotegra, built and prepared by Extreme Turbo System (ETS) and English Racing. If these names sound familiar; it’s because their collaborative efforts have put them on the cutting edge in quarter-mile and half-mile racing in turbocharged cars (especially Nissan GT-Rs). In the front-wheel drive Gringotegra we find an inline four-cylinder engine. This differs greatly Read More

Mystery Solved – Beater Bomb Pops Hood

June 12th, 2018

So, this video is a little different. It documents the guys from 1320 as they saddle up and take a ride (by way of Mexico) over to an Omaha (NE) cruise-in car show. More importantly, the man, the myth, the legend – Beater Bomb – open his hood to finally let the world see what’s under there. Of course, when you get a group of gearheads on the asphalt, they can’t help but stomp the accelerator with frequency. That is especially true when you have outstanding examples like the Unicorn C5 Corvette ZR1 with a Huron Speed twin turbo kit Read More
