8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

Those in the street racing and No-Prep world are very familiar with Casey, but this is his first attempt at taking on the clock. Casey is quite a competitor and we can count on him to give it his all – regardless of the venue. Under the hood, this Nissan is a Chevrolet LS (Texas Speed built) with four-bolt mains.

Thirty-Car Roll Racing Bracket

April 10th, 2019

Taking it to the streets of California (Mexico) for this video. Want to know what happens when thirty purpose-built automobiles roll onto the streets for some serious roll racing? This clip answers all your questions. The vehicles are far-flung. There is everything from an all-wheel drive turbo Honda CRV to an LS swapped Mazda Miata on hand – and then it starts getting weird. How about a twin turbo Viper and a 300M with a Kenne Bell (3.6-liter) supercharger? It’s crazy out here! The night begins with a Roush Mustang (ported blower and high-performance exhaust) and a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Read More

The Minion is capable of producing approximately Read More

Mustang GT500 Kenne Bell vs. GT-R and McLaren – Street Hits

February 19th, 2019

Driving your friend’s GT500 on the streets of Mexico is the absolute best time to encounter a couple of brass ring supercars out trolling for a victim. Even in the darkest of night, the Ford seems outmatched by these top tier sports cars. This is easily seen by all on hand. What is unforeseen is the fact that this (daily driven) Shelby GT500 Mustang has been favorably modified for just such a scenario as this. Take a look. The stock engine and transmission are easy prey for the exotics but a Kenne Bell 2.8-liter blower changes the odds. Power was Read More

Terminator Swapped Fox Body – Street and Strip

February 7th, 2019

The most memorable words in film are uttered by the most memorable characters. When Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator character said, “I’ll be back”, the phrase was etched in the memories of people all over the world. Featured in this video is a slick Fox Body Mustang that is dedicated to bringing the Terminator (engine) back, single handedly. First introduced under the hood of the 2003 and 2004 Mustang SVT Cobra, the Terminator was an iron block supercharged (Eaton 112 Roots) 4.6-liter V8. Forged Manley pistons and twin H-beam connecting rods (with special wrist pin lubrication ports) were added to the bottom Read More

Nasty Nitrous Fox Body vs. Procharged Camaro SS

January 5th, 2019

Buckle up racing fans! It’s time to take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some 45/50 mph roll racing hits. Featured in this clip are a trio of purpose-built muscle cars dedicated to interstate dominance. The oddball is a Fox Body Mustang. No shortage of curb appeal here, but what makes this ride truly unique is hidden beneath the bonnet. It’s packing a big punch from a 6.0-liter (LQ9) GM truck engine. The big truck mill has been upgraded with high-performance internals (fully-built), Texas Speed cylinder heads, and a 175hp shot of laughing gas. The Chevy motor is carbureted Read More

$8K Street Race – GT-R vs. Roush Mustang

January 4th, 2019

Frankly, I haven’t got a clue if these guys are street racers who gamble or gamblers who street race. Either way, I’m sure somebody will take exception to it and that’s okay. One thing is for sure – these guys have built some fast cars and they are willing to throw fat stacks of cash down to get a race. Our first car is a Ford Mustang that has been heavily modified. The upper (supercharger) pulley has been upgraded, the exhaust system has been replaced with a less restrictive system, the fuel system has been upgraded, a performance tune has Read More

LS Swapped Mustang – No Prep Nightmare

December 20th, 2018

Oh no – say it ain’t so – is that a 1967 Ford Mustang doing a burnout in the bleach box? Rumor is that it has been retromodded with a turbocharged Chevrolet engine. That’s going to get under the skin of many Mustang purists; many of whom bleed Ford Blue. Motivation for this pony car comes in the form of a salvaged GM LQ9 (6.0-liter) V8 engine (from a 2003 Cadillac Escalade SUV). After only a camshaft upgrade and some cylinder head porting and polishing; the Caddy motor was outfitted with a Borg Warner S475 turbocharger and an intercooler setup. Read More
