9-Second C7 ZR1 – Stock Motor Bolt-On Record Holder

May 2nd, 2019

At the risk of dating myself, I will tell you that the release of the movie “Corvette Summer” found a teenage version of myself in the local cinema; popcorn and soft drink in hand. The fact that actors played parts in the cult classic was of no consequence to me. The radically customized Corvette was the star and I shall never forget her. The ZR1 featured in this clip, while lacking the insane body mods, makes me think of a modernized version of the Corvette Summer car. Coming at you from Street Car Takeover and being touted as the World Read More

LS Swapped Mustang – No Prep Nightmare

December 20th, 2018

Oh no – say it ain’t so – is that a 1967 Ford Mustang doing a burnout in the bleach box? Rumor is that it has been retromodded with a turbocharged Chevrolet engine. That’s going to get under the skin of many Mustang purists; many of whom bleed Ford Blue. Motivation for this pony car comes in the form of a salvaged GM LQ9 (6.0-liter) V8 engine (from a 2003 Cadillac Escalade SUV). After only a camshaft upgrade and some cylinder head porting and polishing; the Caddy motor was outfitted with a Borg Warner S475 turbocharger and an intercooler setup. Read More

1953 Chevy Bel Air – 10-Second Sleeper

June 7th, 2018

This is one of the most entertaining videos that I have seen in quite a while. If features a true street sleeper in the form of a beat up 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air. Never mind the rust and look past the patina – this thing is big and heavy but that don’t keep it from being fast! Of course, it all starts under the hood where a 6.0-liter LS (Chevy) V8 with an Isky camshaft and mild porting and polishing on the cylinder heads is working away. It’s also running a Precision turbocharger with Holley electronic fuel injection/engine management. The Read More

Street Car Takeover – 660HP TT Rail Job

January 29th, 2018

What could be more entertaining than a little Willis Jeep with a big old (twin) turbocharged V8 engine? With most of the cumbersome body eliminated, the vehicle is not only lighter but also much easier to work on. Although not the prettiest car in the lot, it does have a certain Mad Max meets Speed Racer quality that is very interesting. Let’s take a closer look. At the heart of this creation (that has been named Deathtrap) is a salvage engine that drives some other rudimentary but key components. The driving force is a 5.3-liter LM7 (GM) engine with steel Read More
