1600HP MK3 Supra – Taking it to the Streets

January 30th, 2017

They call me Ishmael – not really – but this is a whale story. Moby Dick it ain’t but a great white whale of a 1987 Toyota Supra is the star of this story. It’s not perfectly clear but I would guess that the moniker “Smiley’s White Whale” is derived from the pale paint color and the whale tail spoiler on the rear. It is perfectly clear, however, that this is no slow moving fish. It is equipped with what is often called a 1.5JZ engine (a 1JZ cylinder head on a 2JZ bottom end). It is a 3.2-liter, in-line Read More

May 5th, 2016

With some recent performance upgrades this fantastic looking Supra showed up in Orlando, Florida, at Street Car Takeover. You may remember this car from the Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws television series. It got drug by the Farm Truck – but that was several hundred-horsepower ago. This hot rod is running a 3.4-liter 2JZ motor with a Real Street RSP1600 package installed. It has a fresh Precision 8385 turbocharger, a 100+ shot direct port nitrous injection, and a heavy-duty TH400 automatic transmission.

March 14th, 2016

This is No Prep racing with some of the biggest names in the Midwest in attendance. The Big Baller Mustang rolled in ready to do battle during Redemption No Prep 4.0 down in Texas and ran into a proverbial buzz saw of competition. Kye Kelley, the Birdman, and Flaco (Skinny) in his twin turbocharged Chevrolet S10, known as ‘Corn Fed’ were all revved up and waiting to run. The Big Baller Cobra Mustang wears a tag plate that reads ‘Boost12’ because it’s boosted and on a scale of one-to-ten – it’s a twelve. It’s running a 380-cubic-inch small block Ford Read More

9-Second Turbo Lexus

January 18th, 2016

Now you can have it all! This video brings us a luxurious Lexus LS300 that can dart through the 1320 in only 9.32-seconds at 149 mph. This thing smokes tires like they’re going out of style and you have to see the parking lot burnouts (with a trailer attached, no less). It all begins with a built 3.0-liter 2JZ engine with upgraded pistons from Combustion Technologies; now add a mammoth Precision 7675 turbocharger. As if that weren’t enough, toss in a 125 shot of nitrous oxide and presto – you’ve got 1,000whp. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 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

1000HP EVO X Runs 198 MPH

October 19th, 2015

In the game of 9-ball, if you want a cue ball to spin fast, reach the brink of chaos, and yield lots of return, then you put a little “English” on it. In half-mile racing, on a closed airstrip, if you want a Mitsubishi Evolution to run like a bat out of Hades, then you better put a little English on it, as well. English Racing that is, where real boost doesn’t start until 30 psi. This video comes to you from the ShiftS3ctor Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2015. This thing is managing 1,034hp from a built 4B11T 2.0-liter inline Read More
