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.
American Muscle Car Fails ( Best Of ) ( Pure SOUND )
Some people just don't deserve to drive a muscle car. In the video you will
see burnout fails. crashes and other strange things. funny to see if i may
say so. please comment and rate
528 V8 Hemi on the dyno. Maximum horsepower!
Nick in Montreal has built another monster. This is the first Dyno test. When it's ready
they'll be dropping it into a '69 Charger 500. This motor will give it
enough power tio rip the tires off. panaritisautomotive.com 514-847-0927
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
Special thanks to import tuner Steve Kan, who allowed us to use his
facility in Fort Worth!
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
Pure Vision's '72 Gran Torino (GTS) on the dyno
This 1972 Gran Tornio built by Pure Vison has a 514 Super Cobra Jet big
block Ford engine breathing through a custom 3" Exhaust and SpinTech mufflers. This is close to
the final pull after a few hours of tuning the dual Edelbrocks. I don't
recall for sure but I the final power figures were in the low 500s at the
wheel. I do know torque was flat across the board and more than enough to
turn those 20 inch 335 Pirelli's into massive billows of smoke! For the
observant folks out there, this is the actual car that was the inspiration
for Fenix's car in the new Fast and Furious movie. It was at two of the
"cast calls" before it was even a running car!

Hammer on the Dyno
Here's the Pure Vision built Hammer on the Dyno at WesTech Performance.
The all aluminum 528 Hemi is fuel injected so it takes a bit of tweaking on
the laptop to get it just right. 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.
Fast and Furious Hammer
Here's the Pure Vision built Hammer (1970 Roadruner) doing some doughnuts
at the Fast and Furious press day. That's over 740hp coming from a Nelson
Racing Engines built supercharged 500ci wedge engine easily roasting up
Michelin's 345/35 19 tires! Catch Steve Strope with his hands out the
window mid spin.... show off!
Fast & Furious 4: Buick Grand National
MORE FAST& FURIOUS 4 @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Heists are, by their nature, illegal. So what could be a better car for a
heist than a sinister black Buick Grand National GNX? And that's just what
Dominic Torreto (Vin Diesel) drives at the beginning of Fast & Furious as
he robs a land train full of high-octane fuel. No one in the picture car
department remembers exactly how the GNX won its role, except that it
seemed such a natural choice that no one gave it a second thought.
Considering the intense stunts performed during the filming of this opening
sequence, it's probably not surprising that a lot of Buick Grand Nationals
(but no actual GNXs) were sacrificed in its creation. In fact, the picture
car department created seven of them, all based on real GNs or T-Types.
Four would wind up scrapped.
The most unusual of the seven GNs built was one with the body mounted
backward on the frame so it could be driven at speed while appearing to be
going backward. To get the engine tucked under the trunk lid, however, the
turbocharger and its plumbing had to be
removed. Most of the other GNs retained their original turbo V6s, though a couple had Chevy crate V8s
It's amazing it took this long for someone to give the Grand National the
starring role it deserved.
1000 HP Corvette Street Test from Nelson Racing Engines.
Tom Nelson takes a ride with Brent Jackson in this fabulous Corvette
Stingray. Tom does a walk around of the car and discusses the many updated
features of this 1000 HP car. At the time of this video, the car has only
150 miles on it. We look foward to Bret visiting NRE soon to crank up the
wild. For more information at http://nelsonracingengines.com and
