Under the hood of the Camaro ZL1 is a supercharged (Lingenfelter) 6.2-liter V8 engine that Read More

1500HP Mustang Fox Body Turbo LS Build – First Street Hits

May 5th, 2020

Meet Streetcarjohn. John used to drive a souped-up Trans Am, but he found it too bulky and unsafe. Despite being a great car, it only had a 10-point roll cage (good only down to 8.5-seconds in the quarter mile). So, Streetcarjohn searched in earnest for a lightweight substitute – a Fox Body with a 24/3 roll cage was his target. When he found it, the Mustang was a rolling chassis only and it looked pretty rough. John quickly sold his Pontiac (to a fellow who had been after it for months) and he purchased the ugly duckling. You can see Read More

American Track Battle – Redeye vs ZL1 1LT vs GT500

February 6th, 2020

Never mind this short video – the battle between the Detroit Big 3 has been raging since the 1960s. Early muscle cars terrorized the tracks and savaged the streets as massive motors with crazy carb setups rolled right off the assembly line and onto dealership floors. These days, big engines and carbs have given way to superchargers and electronic fuel injection, but muscle cars are even more potent than they were the first time around. With the recent introduction of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 we couldn’t help but bring the Big 3 back out for another run at Read More

Salvage Title Mustang Runs 9s

January 31st, 2020

I can’t help but love these junkyard to winner’s circle stories – especially when the transformation takes only four-days. That’s right, these guys grabbed this salvage title 2016 Mustang GT from the junkyard and with their Mustang Lifestyle supercharger kit ($16,450) in hand, they turned this pony car around in just four-days. Take a gander at this thing. Looks like this Mustang was stolen and damaged. Maybe even some interior damage. After all that was repaired, these gearheads wanted to add a little go-fast. They needed look no farther than Mustang Lifestyle and their VMP Gen 3 Supercharger Kit. In Read More
