She’s packing a serious punch from a 564 cubic-inch Brad Anderson Enterprises (BAE) mill, topped off with a pair of 98-millimeter Precision turbochargers. Major power output capacity is the result – to the tune of approximately 3,000hp!

Scott Chevy II – More Blower than Engine

April 30th, 2019

Running in the True Street Class, the Carl Scott Honey Badger Chevy II is equipped with a 632-cube Troy Scott Racing engine. The “small shaft” motor was initially installed in a sand crawler but made too much torque. Sounds like the perfect fit for a No-Prep monster! The true eye-catcher is a blower that has more cubic inches poking out of the hood than most cars have under the hood. The Honey Badger features a Whipple 8.3-liter supercharger bolted to the massive engine. After a successful Round 1, the Honey Badger galded a snout-bearing in the Whipple. In this environment, Read More

Only Cadillac CTS-V3 in the Eights

April 26th, 2019

Yee-Haw! You folks like Mexico? How about lightning fast Cadillacs? The Caddy featured in this clip is being hailed as the first and only CTS-Version 3 (CTS-V, produced after 2016) to ever dip into an 8-second quarter-mile.

With a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 640hp, Brembo Brakes, and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the V3 is no slouch – even in stock trim. Houston Street Monsters does away with the Lingenfelter blower and replaces it with an improved F1A-94 ProCharger. The exhaust Read More

April 24th, 2019

Hello race fans. Meet Bruce, with Hawks Motorsports and (customer) Brad’s unique 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. With less than 10k on the odometer, Brad decided to do something special with his slug of a Gen III Camaro. He dropped it by Hawks Motorsports (Easley, S.C.) for a huge dose of TLC. Hawks decided to integrate the slo-poke IROC-Z with a much faster 2015 Gen VI Chevrolet Camaro Z28. After the engine bay was spruced up with a little clear-coat (Kolorworks); out came the meager 5.0-liter “pollution solution” V8 and the mighty LS7 (7.0-liter) all-aluminum V8 took its place. Wizard Cooling Read More
