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.

Video of the 2014 West Coast Super Meet (WCSM) this past weekend. Lots of
good times with good people.
I apologize for any issues with the video. Had some weirdness with the
GoPro and my computer (which sucks) and got some issues in a couple spots.
No matter. On with the show...

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.
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
Breaking Out (of your bracket that is)
Took the little truck to Sac Raceway to see how it liked the new NT420S
tires I had put on this winter and I have to say, the results speak for
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!!
BMW HP4 - dyno runs
We've ridden the über exclusive HP4 at the press launch in Jerez, but
didn't get a chance to truly test the Beemer's Dynamic Damping Control -
essentially semi-active suspension. The UK's bumps and swells are an ideal
test but we had to stick her on the JHS Racing Dyno first. Guesses?
