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

3-Wide Street Racing – GT500 vs Corvette vs Honda

April 21st, 2016

This is straight-up, 3-wide street racing action between a couple of power house sports cars and a Honda. First, the big dogs line-up for some 60mph roll racing. After the GT500 gets through skinning the ‘Vette, the Chevy takes out his pent-up aggression on the Honda in progress. This black beauty Mustang GT500 has a built engine with the camshaft and cylinder heads upgraded; plus there’s a giant 4.2-liter (that’s almost as big as the 5.0-liter engine) Kenne Belle supercharger bolted on top. Horsepower is estimated at 1,000. The Corvette C6Z is equipped with a 100-shot of laughing gas and Read More

Import Street Shootout – Mitsubishi Evo vs. Honda Civic

April 7th, 2016

Import aficionados will really appreciate this video. Roll racing is the order of the day and there’s a well put together Mitsubishi that’s beating the brakes off everything. There is also several bonus runs with various imports making a Mustang Cobra look pretty weak. The main event is between a 500hp Civic and the aforementioned Evolution. The Honda is trying to get dialed-in (and the Mitsubishi is giving him ample opportunity) but the Evo is quite a hand-full. The Mitsubishi is running a built 2.0-liter engine block (stock cylinder head) with upgraded camshafts and a twin-scroll Precision 6070 dual ball-bearing Read More

800HP Turbo Civic Takes on All Challengers

January 14th, 2016

This video shows a seriously tricked out Honda Civic with a built and sleeved GSR engine, a 67/72 turbocharger, and a Javi tuner in some competitive heads-up roll racing on the streets. He is taking on all challengers. There is a GTR that locks horns with the little Honda only to find out that he paid way too much to be getting whooped by a lowly Civic. Then there’s a couple of bad bikes and a Honda S2000 that gets left in the lurch. After that, it’s off to the track where the roll racing continues. If you like roll Read More

World’s Fastest S2000 Runs 7.17 @ 192 MPH

December 8th, 2015

This clip brings us the world record setting 1/4-mile run of a Honda S2000. This coupe is built, tuned, and campaigned by the gang at Real St. It is sporting a set of 10.5-inch wide racing slicks and this thing really hooks up and blasts down the track. I know it is Real St. but you really don’t want to go up against this import on the street – or do you? Believe it or not, this Honda is still equipped with a 2.2-liter inline four-cylinder (F22C) engine built by Inline PRO. It has also been upgraded with an 82-millimeter Precision turbocharger. The Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Powered Honda Civic

October 29th, 2015

After four-years Jeff Lutz Jr. finally got to campaign his CRAZY 1989 Honda Civic during Drag Week 2015. This highly modified import has garnered some degree of internet fame during the last few years. Weighing only 2,300-pounds, this car can already sprint through the 1320 in the 7-second range and we expect some really special things once Jeff gets the boost tuned in. No more v-tec for this Civic. A tube chassis supports a massive 434-cubic-inch-diameter V8 Vinson Race engine with a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbos (good for 1,000hp!). Jeff and the crew fought some headaches during Drag Week Read More
