All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More

Real Street Racing – South Georgia Cash Days

August 28th, 2018

Yep, this is South Georgia (Mexico) alright. The dragstrip is no wider than a pig trail. There are more pickups entered in the cash days than cars. There’s a PT Cruiser running a 350hp shot of nitrous and if Colonel Sanders stepped out of the bushes (which are very close to the pavement) with a bucket of chicken, no one would be surprised. Right off the trailer, we got a heavily modified Nissan 300z against a V8 Chevy S10 pickup. Both racers leave the line clean but the S10 drags the import for the win. Race two of round one; Read More

These things are crazy-fast and ripping through the streets of Old Mexico like a hot knife through butter. Come on and have a gander. You know it’s going to be a great night when your camera car is a (black) Corvette ZR1 with a camshaft and cylinder head upgrade. Oh, and don’t forget a Kong ported blower treatment with an ice water intercooler. Opening up these blowers is yielding some amazing gains in horsepower and torque. Climb in Read More
