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

Underground Racing Huracan Gapped by Corvette C7Z – Street Hits

May 15th, 2020

This street racing video has it all – street hustlers, outright liars, and loveable losers. It also has domestics, imports, and supercars, all locked in head-to-head roll racing competition. Capable cars from all over the country meet up in Texas and drop down south of the border where the action quickly heats up. Take a gander for yourself. The cameraman first climbs into a Corvette ZR1 with a Kong ported blower, full bolt-ons, and a methanol injection. Maximum output is estimated at 800whp. The ‘Vette gets jumped by a rear-wheel drive Acura Integra straightaway. The Integra comes out hard but Read More

Supercar Street Hits – McLaren 720S vs 1000HP R32 GTR

May 12th, 2020

Lessons learned include the fact that anything wearing the McLaren nameplate is pretty difficult to get the jump on. Even if you have a ton more horsepower, it seems like anything in the McLaren lineup – with their above-average power-to-weight ratio – has the potential to jump out on you and take it to the stripe pretty hard. That being said, this primo (JDM) Nissan GTR ain’t conceding the victory. Not by a long shot. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill Nissan GTR. The engine has been upgraded with a stroker kit that bumps it up (from a 2.6-liter) to Read More

Exotic Airstrip Attack – Lamborghini vs. McLaren vs. Pagani vs. Porsche

April 28th, 2020

All the heavy hitters are lined up for this one. The course is a half-mile abandoned airstrip and the scenery is nothing short of amazing. Competitors are flowing into the venue via some of the curviest roads on the planet and the exotics are piling up – each one eager to test his mettle in the standing half-mile. The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV (complete with a very loud Akrapovic racing exhaust) has a 750hp 6.5-liter V12 screeching under the bonnet. A 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 that can produce 789hp is working away in the McLaren Senna and the McLaren 720S Read More

PROSPEED 1000+HP Viper vs. GTR, BMW, Vette – Street Hits

April 16th, 2020

Hours old, this impressive Gen V Dodge Viper build has come to tame the Texas streets. With a massive 8.4-liter V10 engine and a PROSPEED 750 package (with an F1X ProCharger), this snake is recoiled to strike. Add a 300hp shot of go-go juice from Nitrous Outlet and it almost doesn’t seem fair to the other guys (and girls). Oh, he’s on race gas. Let’s go racing! As we ease across the border and into Mexico, the camera guy jumps into the passenger seat of the Viper for a wild night of street racing. First up is a Chevy C6Z Read More

Unbeaten 2000HP GTR vs. Turbo Lamborghini Performante – TX2K20

April 14th, 2020

AMS Performance is at it again. Building big power, 7-second imports is a practice that this firm has down to a science. These AMS cars are always in the running for fastest Nissan GTR on the planet and that’s just the beginning. Let’s have a look at the lineup for TX2K20. There’s George Martin in a GTR with a 76-millimeter turbocharger and Dave Roerschetter in his GTR3 with a 68-millimeter turbo. Both of these cars have run consistent low 7-second passes and they seek the elusive 6-second pass in this event. Then there is the Prime Cuts Chop Shop GTR, Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Lamborghini Huracan and Dodge Viper – TX2K20 Roll and Dig

April 7th, 2020

In addition to a beast of a Porsche 911 Turbo S, Cicio Performance brought a fleet of Nissan GT-R entries out to compete in TX2K20, earlier this year. Whether it was roll racing or dig racing, no one was safe as Jan Buhler campaigned his underdog 1,650whp GT-R against the likes of Calvo Vipers and Underground Lamborghinis in the rolls. Winning the GTR3 Class (drag racing) was another Cicio entry owned and operated by Jessie Frymyer. He took home the trophy with a 7.80-second dig pass @ 179 mph. Jan was a tremendous underdog in his class because there were Read More

Pure Turbo McLaren vs. Underground Racing Lambo – Street Hits  

April 4th, 2020

This night of street racing (in Mexico) features some of the most impressive exotics that we have seen (on the street) in a while. This McLaren clique is determined to work their British muscle into competition with the Underground Racing (UR) contingent. Careful what you ask for… Cameraman Fred climbs onboard a Battleship Gray McLaren 570GT that has been upgraded with a Pure Turbo Stage 1 Kit, a Soul Performance 3.5-inch catless downpipe assembly and a DME custom tune. Output is estimated to be somewhere in the 750-850hp range. As fate would have it, the guy in the gray McLaren Read More

Hellcat Redeye vs. Camaro ZL1 Corvette and Godzilla – Street Hits

April 2nd, 2020

Treat yourself to this rareified video that documents an extraordinarily diverse group of street racing machines racing during daylight hours. Most street races take place during cover of darkness but with public thoroughfares (in Mexico) basically deserted, this large group of heavy hitters decided to hookup in the sunshine. No social distancing laws were violated during the making of this clip. Enjoy. The cameraman posts up in the passenger seat of the Indigo Blue Hellcat Redeye. It doesn’t take long to line up a race with a supercharged Camaro ZL1. It has been modified with a set of headers, a Read More
