The Jet – 1027HP Lexus IS300 Street Sleeper Sedan

January 17th, 2019

This is a must see street sleeper sedan that is loaded with up-side. It is a 2003 Lexus IS 300 and it is built to move – it’s for sale, too (see the links below the video). With ice cold a/c, navigation, stereo, and factory leather seating, this sedan is as comfortable as it is shockingly fast. Take a look. First of all, the owner (Jerry) bought this car brand new and immediately (6-miles) brought it over to Toyomoto where Lance treated it to the full treatment. From there, it has been built stronger and faster in stages, until it Read More

1000HP Turbo 2JZ Toyota Pickup – Ride Along Street Hits

January 12th, 2019

After picking-up this 1993 Toyota pickup for only $800, Ralphy set out to use his knowledge and experience to build a fun vehicle that was both a good daily driver and a beast on the street and strip. Today, we get a chance to crawl into the passenger seat and ride-along as Ralphy shows-off the fruit of his labors and tells us a little about the journey – up until now. First of all; this rough looking little pickup is powered by a 2JZ inline 6-cylinder engine (Diamond pistons with powder forged connecting rods) with a Precision 7675 turbocharger. All Read More

Supercharged Camaro vs. Turbo Mark 3 Supra – Street Hits

January 4th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a night of roll racing on the streets of Mexico. Featured in this video is a top-of-the-line Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (bolt-ons) rolling out against a heavily modified Toyota Supra Turbo. After the cameraman crawls into the ZL1, it’s on like hotcakes. The driver immediately spills the goods on mods. It has been upgraded with an oversize supercharger pulley, cold air intake, and exhaust headers. He’s running 15-inch rear wheels and E85 fuel. Along comes a Corvette ZR1 to warm up the Camaro, before the Toyota boys roll out. The ‘Vette proves to be a Read More

Import vs. Domestic Street Hits – Supra Vette Mustang

December 1st, 2018

What’s better than some roll racing on a crisp fall night in Mexico? How about 3-wide roll racing on a deserted highway? If that don’t light your fire – your wood must be wet. What we have tonight is a battle royale between a turbocharged Toyota Supra (900 – 950whp), a Procharged C7 Chevrolet Corvette (930whp) from Advanced Modern Performance, a twin turbocharged Ford Mustang (850whp), and a second C7 ‘Vette with full bolt-ons and a kit of nitrous. Mustang is the camera car. Rolling out first is the pony car against the Toyota. The Mustang takes the hit; pulls Read More

8-Second Honda Swapped Toyota Tacoma

November 27th, 2018

By now it has been established that the Haltech World Cup Finals (Import vs. Domestic) draws some of the baddest and most unique rides in racing. The focus-vehicle vehicle for this clip is nothing if not capable and unique. Running in the eights, this street truck has to be considered among the upper echelon at any event. The Toyota chassis and Honda/domestic drivetrain certainly stand out from the crowd. The vehicle is a 2003 Toyota Tacoma. It is equipped with a Honda K24 engine. Nearly stock, the Honda bottom end is gently massaged with Manley connecting rods and JE Pistons. Read More

2JZ Swapped Classic Pontiac – 10-Second Sleeper

November 25th, 2018

Talk about a budget build; this 1966 Pontiac Tempest is like a cross between Dragnet and The Jetsons. It reminds me of Bizarro World in the old Superman comics. Typically, racers purchase a small import coupe and install a massive V8 with a power-adder (or two). Not this time – this little creampuff has four-doors and plenty of ballast. The big V8 engine has been tossed aside for a more economical Toyota 2JZ, inline 6-cylinder (from a Lexus SUV). The turbo installation kit, turbocharger, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and aluminum racing radiator are all e-bay items. A Microsquirt ECU controls Read More

Today’s contest is all about top speed and these guys can really make it.

The tiny car now has a K20 gasoline engine and a small turbocharger (instead Read More

1000+HP Supra – Street Hits Ride Along

November 1st, 2018

This clip enables us to ride along with Toyota Supra owner/operator Yosdany in his 1,019whp creation. So, climb into the passenger seat, buckle in, and enjoy this POV perspective. This beast of a Supra is about to rip up the streets (of Mexico). Yosdany’a Supra has a stock bottom-end 2JZ inline 6-cylinder Toyota engine. A full ensemble of bolt-ons, performance exhaust, a Precision 7685 turbocharger, and tuning by Lance Toyomoto give this import a major bump in horsepower. Yosdany gives a nod to Larry at Drag International for helping him clear some of the parts hurdles associated with a build Read More

750HP Toyota Cressida – Tackles Drag Week

October 26th, 2018

It’s time for Hot Rod Drag Week (1,000-miles roundtrip, four dragstrips, five-days) again. The Mighty Car Mods (MCM) YouTube show has turned up to campaign their Toyota Cresta (that’s Cressida in the U.S.). That is a four-door touring car not often associated with drag racing but MCM is known for their Japanese vehicle transformations. Let’s see what they have done with this sleeper. Although the Toyota seems like a great candidate for a 2JZ, this sedan is rolling with an inline 6-cylinder of a different breed. Ever heard of a Ford Barra engine? Well, this one is a 4.0-liter inline Read More
