QS 500hp or Bust (again...)
After our appearance in Truckin Magazine and the saga of the blown motor,
we decided to come back stronger than ever and build something most people
had never even dreamed of.
Project: Quickshift is now, to my knowledge, the worlds first vehicle to
have forged internals for the GM Atlas 5cyl motor. It made 350rwhp in this
video and we are currently working to get that figure to over 400hp, which
roughly translates to over 500hp at the motor. In the coming weeks Motor
Machine Super Shop will be working to finish the motor build out and show
that 500hp in a reg. cab mid size truck, is plenty for anyone.

2005 GMC Canyon Hertz/Audison system overview
2005 GMC Canyon with full Hertz/Audison stereo system. Was at one time, the
loudest regular cab Colorado/Canyon in the world w/o a blow-thru. System
has been measured at over 140dB and sports some of the best equipment
available to ensure high sound quality as well.
All fab and design work done by Auto Radio Stereo in Sacramento, CA.
Special thanks to Adam DeFazio and Flint Skupic for their hard work on this
210 camaro turbo v6
2010 Camaro v6 single
remote mount turbo having some fun in
the streets. Beast of a car! They took me for a ride and I just filmed us
playing around a little.. This car doesn't like to grip, but when it does,
it throws you back in your seat with a huge smile! Totally custom built
buy these guys. Awesome experience, and I can't wait for my FI v6!!
AutoX-ing the Canyon
Took the Canyon to the Good Guys AutoX on 5/31/14 and had some fun. My
buddy Jeff is riding shotgun while I try to go around without make it look
like I know what I'm doing.
Was running Nitto 420S tires 255/55/18 so times could greatly improve with
better tires and if I knew what the hell I was doing...
As always, thanks to Jay's Hot Rods, STS turbo, Nitto Tire, and XS Power for their support.
07 Yamaha R1 Quickshifter Demonstration
I just installed a Superbike Unlimited reflashed ECU with quickshifter now
enabled on the factory ECU, coupled with a Dano's performance pull-type
normally open quickshift sensor. First ride was a totally different beast.
Thought I'd share.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
