V6 Turbo Swapped Nissan 240sx – Build Tips and Street Hits

May 29th, 2020

Greetings speed enthusiasts and other gearheads. Allow me to introduce Andre Cargrill and his Ugly Duckling. Andrew has been 15-years building the version of the Ugly Duckling that hits the streets (of Mexico) today. Last time we saw Andrew’s car, a 1995 Nissan S14 240sx, it was equipped with a turbocharged Nissan KA four-cylinder engine. The four-banger was more than adequate – and Andrew builds a really nice ride – but he wanted a little more. Now, the duck is powered by an Infiniti (Nissan) VQ35HR V6 motor with a massive turbo. Numerous modifications were necessary for the chassis of Read More

Supercar Street Hits – McLaren 720S vs 1000HP R32 GTR

May 12th, 2020

Lessons learned include the fact that anything wearing the McLaren nameplate is pretty difficult to get the jump on. Even if you have a ton more horsepower, it seems like anything in the McLaren lineup – with their above-average power-to-weight ratio – has the potential to jump out on you and take it to the stripe pretty hard. That being said, this primo (JDM) Nissan GTR ain’t conceding the victory. Not by a long shot. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill Nissan GTR. The engine has been upgraded with a stroker kit that bumps it up (from a 2.6-liter) to Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Lamborghini Huracan and Dodge Viper – TX2K20 Roll and Dig

April 7th, 2020

In addition to a beast of a Porsche 911 Turbo S, Cicio Performance brought a fleet of Nissan GT-R entries out to compete in TX2K20, earlier this year. Whether it was roll racing or dig racing, no one was safe as Jan Buhler campaigned his underdog 1,650whp GT-R against the likes of Calvo Vipers and Underground Lamborghinis in the rolls. Winning the GTR3 Class (drag racing) was another Cicio entry owned and operated by Jessie Frymyer. He took home the trophy with a 7.80-second dig pass @ 179 mph. Jan was a tremendous underdog in his class because there were Read More

Cicio Nissan GT-R – Low 9-Second Pass @ 146 MPH

February 12th, 2020

What’s that they say about the passion of youth? You can’t help but admire the way this kid loves to go down the track. I wonder if he loves it because he’s good at it or if he’s good at it because he loves it? Either way – this child of a pair of racers has been officially stamped as “gifted” after posting a .000 reaction time in his near stock Nissan GT-R. Have a look. 1320 Video caught up with Coy Christmas, Jr. during a Phoenix, Arizona event where he was campaigning his Cicio Performance (750hp) Nissan GT-R in Read More

Extreme Drag Racing – New GT-R World Record

November 2nd, 2019

That’s right! They did it again! Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing have teamed up to bring the Nissan GT-R (Quarter-mile) World Record home to the United States. Maryland International Raceway (Budds Creek, Maryland) is the sight of 2019 Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals. This spectacular event suddenly morphs into a world record busting bonanza when the ETS GT-R scampers down the track in 6.56-seconds @ 225.15 mph. That knocks 2/100ths of a second off the time set by the Alpha Logic GT-R on February 15, 2019 in Dubai, U.A.E. The ETS Nissan is obviously radically modified with Read More

Infiniti vs. GT-R – Street Hits

October 5th, 2019

by: Julianna Baron So, here’s the sit rep: We have an Infiniti G35 that looks (inside and out) like it just came from the junk yard. The interior (and wiring) is torn up and the exterior looks like it has been in a demolition derby. It is rough. Thing is, it has undergone an engine upgrade and it has a big turbo strapped to it. Sure, it ain’t the neatest job but it’s getting 1,000hp to the wheels. That’s according to the owner. In an effort to quiet the naysayers, he has called out a modified Nissan R35 GT-R. Unlike the Read More
