Toyota PRIUS with a Flowmaster Muffler (Hippie Support Vehicle for the Married Hot Rodder)
This is a quick video feature on a Toyota Prius with a "sporty" muffler.
As a hot rodder, I needed a reliable car for my wife that would make her happy and keep our costs down so that I could spend any spare income on project cars. So, in 2004, we bought this thing. I wasn't thrilled with the purchase but the car fit the bill at the time and has traveled 143,000 trouble free miles but is still really, really boring.
Then I cut the stock muffler off, welded up a Flowmaster and a chrome tip to play a joke on my wife and I ended up leaving it on there. It cracks me up to hear this thing pull in to the driveway!

Lotus Evora with Awesome Sound
This is the 2011 Lotus Evora, the largest and most comfortable car Lotus
has ever made, yet it still retains the famous razor sharp handling the
brand is known for.
The Evora 2+2 is advertised as the worlds only production mid-engine/rear
drive car with a backseat. That said, the back seat is not really big
enough for humans but is very convenient to carry plenty of stuff, making
the car quite practical. Plus, Lotus has gone to great lengths to make the
humans that do fit into this car more comfortable than in past models.
Lots of creature comforts such as Sat/Nav, beautifully stitched apholstery,
power folding mirrors, and a back up camera make the Evora a very pleasant
vehicle when you're not scaring yourself silly trying to find the limits of
it's handling capabilities.
That's exactly where this car really shines. 0-60 mph happens in 4.9
seconds which puts it firmly in super car territory and the handling is
flat out amazing. The steering feel is PERFECT and somehow the suspension
is downright comfortable for a vehicle that truly handles like a go-cart.

This was one of the easiest installs I've ever done and the parts from the
kit are the real stars here.
Make sure to let me know if the longer video format is good or if I should
keep them shorter... PLUS I ask a few important questions at the end so
watch and participate in the build!!!

or just call my friend Carl at Chris Alston's Chassiworks 888-388-0298...I
was totally thrilled with their help and most importantly the parts!!!

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Road Test
Can you drift a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO like Nascar racer Carl Edwards does in
the commercial? I tried and couldn't. This press car didn't have the ESC
button in the center console to disable the stability management system so
try as I might, the car would never get sideways.
I did however find out how great this car is at being a world class sedan.
Around town and in the canyons, this 4400 pound vehicle feels flat out
It's also pretty fast, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds will get your attention and the
immensely capable all wheel drive system, huge brakes and fantastic
suspension will keep it.
I'll go on record for loving the eco-Boost engine platform. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 is only mildly laggy at the low end but
more than makes up for that once it starts to rev. The practical side is
that you could use all 365 horsepower in this car and
still manage fuel mileage in the mid 20's and then on the highway settle in
at about 30 MPG.
Would I own one, heck yes...as long as it had that ESC button in the center
console to disable the stability management systems so that I could four
wheel drift the tires off the thing.

HOW TO make your exhaust LOUDEST
*STOP the comments on how bad the welds were. I know they were shit. Take
a look at the rust I was welding on. This was one of my first times
welding. I didn't know you had to get the welding surface to bare metal
back then. Also, I was working with a 110 harbor freight welder.*
This is a video on how to make your Exhaust straight piped but still look like you
have a muffler.
WARNING: Doing this mod may make your vehicle not pass inspection or
emissions. Keep that in mind if you want to make your Exhaust straight piped.

Dyno-Tuning the Draguar's 696 Horsepower Supercharged Small Block Chevy! - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep. 35
It's time for motor mayhem! On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited we head to
Westech Performance Group with Mike Finnegan to Dyno-tune a new engine for the
Draguar, the 1974 Jaguar XJ12 with a small-block Chevy under the hood that
he and Freiburger bought for $1,000 and installed a Supercharger onto in a parking lot during episode
7 of Roadkill. After the Supercharger
upgrade the guys road-tripped the dilapidated car from San Francisco to
Sacramento for a drag race. With the summertime air temps hovering around
113 degrees, the worn out 350 overheated and Freiburger only managed to run
a 15.30 ¼ mile ET at Sacramento Raceway.
Looking for redemption, Freiburger ordered a new 383ci long block from
Blueprint Engines, a definite upgrade over the old powerplant. Though the
new longblock is only rated to 600hp it features forged pistons and rods
and a forged crankshaft, which means that the guys can turn up the Boost and make double the power of the old
engine. The engine effortlessly made 650hp with 91 octane fuel in the tank
but Finnegan was feelin' froggy so he added 118 octane race fuel and upped
the Boost to 15 psi in an attempt to
make 700hp with the 383. Did the engine leave the Dyno shop in one piece? Check
out the video to see!
The engine we used is a BluePrint Engines' 383 Long Block designed for

remove the stock system, and then the rear muffler and tip assembly. Put
your new Flowmaster Exhaust up into
place on the Focus and after that the s-shaped pipe. Then, install the
