Update for Project Quickshift (1-25-12)
Truck is just finished at Motor Machine Super Shop. Tune is done and the truck is making power and driving like a champ. This is a collection of videos I have taken during the course of recent events. Sorry for the poor picture quality. For some reason my phone likes to change it's settings back to default every once in a while instead of shooting in 720p like I told it to...
A HUGE thanks goes out to Don and Bob at Motor Machine Super Shop in Carmichael, CA. I couldn't have done it without them.
Also, big thanks to STS turbo, Sinsity Kustomz, HiLEDs, Auto Radio Stereo, Over The Top Performance, Jonny_Vico, Cory (05_quick4door), Mike B (emaxxer), and all who gave encouragement and advice. It has been a very rough and tiring road, but we finally did it.
Enjoy the video
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.

Two Steps From Hell - False King
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...

economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car

Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of

exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted

buddy Jeff is riding shotgun while I try to go around without make it look
like I know what I'm doing.

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.
