Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri

Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can fit to the car and turbo it while remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip warrior. Nice one Joe!

BLK40T - Real 8-second Streetcar
When it comes to Pro-Street racing there's plenty of cars that just wear the numberplates and never see the street, but Joe Geri's twin turbo Capri isn't one of them. With a 4-litre Lexus quad-cam V8 under the bonnet it is 100% NSW street legal and as you can see on the video it can run an 8.38 at 160mph on 275 width drag radials. In fact Joe even drove the car to the track, something he does every meeting, and since the 4-litre combo went in the car has done over 35,000kms on the street and over 350 passes on the track along with 100 runs on the Dyno. How's that for reliability? What a car!





STUNCH - Blown LEXUS 4-litre V8
Those 4-litre quad cam V8 seem to be the motors of the moment. After the LS-bsaed engines they seem to be the most popular engine to slot into something else. But occassionally we'll see a factory fitment with something special like this m112 Supercharger on this Lexus (toyota celsior actually).

Even though it's not the quickest car in the class the Torana swept all before it during the Chicago Shootout in Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals and then defeeated the Perko Torana in the finals. A solid win from a very cool looking car
