2JZ Swapped Nissan 370Z – 248MPH Quarter-Mile

January 18th, 2020

This race car is called Blue Thunder, but what is it? Is it a Toyota? Is it a Nissan? Nobody knows! What we do know is that it is extremely fast. About one year ago, Jorge Juarbe (and crew) built this wild import. Opting out of the Nissan motor and saying “heck no” to a big V8; Jorge instead selected a steady-ready 2JZ Toyota (Inline 6) mill for his Nissan 370z. After building the Toyota engine with the best internals available and bolting on a PRO-JAY Bully (billet) intake manifold, Jorge added a 106-millimeter Precision turbocharger. This guy rolls off Read More

World’s Fastest Stick Shift Supra

January 3rd, 2020

Gear jamming, rowing or banging; no matter how you describe it, a manually shifted drag car poses its own unique set of challenges. It takes a special car and an even more special driver to achieve any success working a clutch and a shifter. Joel Grannas (Grannas Racing) is just such a driver and he has built a Toyota Supra drag car that is taking the country by storm. He started by grabbing the World Record for a stick shift Toyota Supra in the quarter-mile. Next, he took the record for fastest rear-wheel drive stick shift car. Turns out that Read More

December 13th, 2019

Greetings race fans and welcome to Budd’s Creek, Maryland for the Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs Domestic. Featured in this clip are Fred and his turbocharged Toyota Tacoma pickup that runs some pretty consistent 8-second passes. Like most drag racers, Fred would ordinarily be laser focused on breaking out of the eights and posting that elusive 7-second pass. Will this be “that” kind of day? Let’s have a look. The truck has a 2JZ inline six-cylinder with aluminum connecting rods and a ported stock cylinder head. The turbocharger is a Precision 6785 and the transmission is a Powerglide with Read More

Twin Turbo Viper vs Procharged Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

November 20th, 2019

Wow! This about as elite a degree of street racing as you will ever encounter. When you see firms like Calvo Motorsports represented; put your big boy (or girl) pants, fill the nitrous bottle, top off the fuel cell and check the racing harness – ‘cause it’s time to go racing. This is going to be a good one. Our cameraman starts off in an 850hp Ford Mustang with a stock 5.0 and twin turbochargers. Tonight, the Mustang will roll out against a yellow Chevy Corvette Z06 with an LSX and a Vortech YSi supercharger. It is making 1073hp on Read More

Crazy Classic Camaro – Supercharged Monster

November 18th, 2019

This crazy classic Camaro definitely falls into the category of ‘ground-pounders’. What began as a 1972 Chevrolet Camaro now looks like a shiny new Hot Wheels car with a giant blower poking through the hood. This burnt orange masterpiece sounds just like rolling thunder. We’ll find the owner and see what’s going on under the hood. Bobby says he’s running a 540 cubic-inch big block with a 14-71 blower strapped to it – “nothing fancy”, he goes on to say. The crew is still trying to get the bugs worked out. So, they ain’t making but about 2000hp. Ground pounder! Read More

Violent All-Wheel Drive Street Launches

November 5th, 2019

One thing that all these race cars have in common is that they get the heck outta’ Dodge in one quick hurry. Despite being equipped with “all paw crawl”, these radically modified monsters are bucking, flexing, twisting and spinning as they cut loose in an effort to exhibit maximum power output in minimum time and distance. Hold on to your hats for this one. The action begins with a “shoebox” Audi 200 Turbo laying it all on the line in a brutal launch. This car looks to be in the ultimate sleeper category. Next up is an AWD Mitsubishi EVO. Read More

7-Second Four-Cylinder DSM

October 28th, 2019

This is nothing short of amazing. For your viewing pleasure, we offer a Mitsubishi Eclipse that cannot simply rip a (low) 7-second quarter-mile and churn out 1800hp – but gets it done using a four-cylinder engine. I’m no genius, but if my math is correct, that is more than 400hp per cylinder! As I said: Amazing. Campaigning in the Extreme Stick Shift Class, this DSM is powered by a billet aluminum (4G63 platform) four-cylinder engine with a factory aluminum DOHC cylinder head. Block and head are loaded with the best components that money can buy. The turbocharger is an 86-millimeter Read More
