The Pure Vision built Hammer does a power pull on the Dyno at WesTech Performance. The EFI all aluminum 528 Hemi still needed a few more tweaks but they were getting close with this pull. Final output AT THE WHEEL from this "MILD" Ray Barton built beast was 538hp and climbing hard at 6000RPM and 498ft-lbs at 5000RPM with over 400ft-lbs at 3000RPM. Talk about a freight train! Sure sounds good through that 3" Flowmaster Exhaust! And yes, this is Dom's car from the end of Tokyo Drift, but along with the new Hemi came a stripe down the side. Its likeness was also used in the new Fast and Furious but the real car never appeared on screen.
Dyno pulls - Lee Sicilio's Hemi Daytona Landspeed car
Car holds a number of records in "Classic" category at Bonneville. Current
engine is a 498 CID Ray Barton Hemi with FAST XFI injection.
These are the last two pulls to verify AFR and ignition at 7000+rpm before
heading to Bonneville later this year, trying for a record in the
Although we were not logging horsepower on these loaded
pulls (not important) - the engine made 930 hp on Barton's Superflow engine

Fast and Furious Hammer
Here's the Pure Vision built Hammer (1970 Roadruner) doing some doughnuts

Racing Engines built supercharged 500ci wedge engine easily roasting up

MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
What Clint Eastwood did for the 1972 Gran Torino in Gran Torino, Fast &
Furious will try to undo. Because in this movie, the very nastiest bad guy
- you know, the chief henchman who does the dirtiest deeds and dies just
before the big boss bad guy gets his - drives a '72 Gran Torino Sportsroof.
The inspiration for the Gran Torino in Fast & Furious comes from a similar
Torino built for Dan Widmann at Steve Strope's Pure Vision Design - the
same shop from which emerged the Hammer Road Runner that's also featured in
the film. Strope brought Widmann's Torino to a casting session and a star -
well, a co-star - was born.
The one significant visual change between Widmann's Torino and the replicas
built for the film is that Widmann's car is blue, and the bad guy Torinos
were painted green. It seems that blue was already assigned as super-dreamy
Paul Walker's color in Fast & Furious, so the bad attitude character "Fenix
Rise" (played by Laz Alonzo) would have to wear green.
Little matter, however, as the Gran Torino looks dang good in green.
To portray Fenix's FoMoCo, the picture car department acquired six '72
Torino Sportsroof models and one '73. As with the Charger, some of the
stunt cars were fit with Chevy crate V8s and automatic transmissions, but
at least one of the cars was originally equipped with a 429 and four-speed
manual transmission. Five of the cars were either destroyed during
production or ripped apart for parts.
Among the Torinos destroyed was that 429 four-speed car. Sometimes evil
must be done in order to portray evil.

The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on
the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967
Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag
