Making a Four-Wheeled Honda Fast

April 28th, 2017

The owner of the Honda S2000 featured in this video has a desire to help his fellow import owners. He wants to show us all how to make our import street and strip cars get down the track a lot faster. He accomplishes his mission within the first 30-seconds of the clip but you will want to stay for the hot drag racing action. This post is coming at you from beautiful, sunny Orlando, Florida (east coast home of Mickey Mouse) and the Street Car Takeover. As soon as the hood on the bright red Honda is opened, anyone can Read More

Raw Roll Racing – Import vs. Domestic

March 28th, 2017

Fans of roll racing on the streets will love this video like a fat man loves apple pie (ala mode). It has it all – procharged, turbocharged, and even naturally aspirated (N/A) cars. This night of roll racing action is taking place on the streets of San Antonio, Mexico (of course). Only a few minutes into this one and I could tell that there were some pretty heavy-hitters on hand. It also seemed like most of the cars were evenly matched (according to power) for a competitive night of racing. Let’s take a look! First up is a Corvette Z06 Read More

8-Second Honda Civic

October 21st, 2016

Help me out here – this don’t sound like any Honda Civic that I ever heard. No wonder, this thing is running some big cubic inches and a pair of turbos. Lil’ Lutz was turning heads and making tongues wag, during Drag Week 2016, as he produced consistent 8-second passes (at around 160 mph) in this seriously modified Honda Civic. How did he do that? Well, you basically pull off the hood emblem and drive a race car in under it. Seriously, this is only a shell of an ’89 Honda Civic – it ain’t even front wheel drive anymore Read More

Honda S2000 Street Hammer

October 17th, 2016

By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More

Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More

Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016

The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

880HP Turbo Toyota Corolla Trueno

June 16th, 2016

This is one crazy fabrication. It’s a Toyota Corolla Trueno outfitted with a turbocharged Honda 2.0-liter F22 engine and a stock S2 transmission. The F22 is standard equipment in the Honda S2000 sports car but this one comes with a long list of embellishments. First, there’s a Garrett 6765 turbocharger with a HiBoost manifold taking care of the forced air induction. The engine has been upgraded with custom connecting rods and stock pistons, as well as a camshaft (DOHC) and valvetrain upgrade. It’s got a MagnaFuel fuel pump, an AEM fuel rail and a set of 2150 fuel injectors providing Read More

Money Race – Tesla P85DL vs Dodge Viper SRT10

June 2nd, 2016

Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily. Next, we have roll racing from 20 to 120 mph and the Dodge wins. After that, they begin at 45 mph and the Viper bests the Tesla again. Dig racing is next and Read More

Shocker – Honda Civic vs. Lamborghini Gallardo

May 16th, 2016

If someone told me that a Honda Civic beat a Lamborghini Gallardo on the street or strip, I’d think they were being less than honest. If I saw this unlikely sight on a local interstate, I’d believe that I needed to drink less or have my eyes checked. However, there just is no arguing with video. The Civic coupe weighs in at 2,100-pounds and is equipped with a sleeved K20 2.0-liter Honda VTEC engine with a 6262 Precision turbocharger. It’s making around 700hp. The hatchback has a similar setup, except it has an ERL block and a 66-millimeter turbocharger. The Read More
