Turbo AWD Acura Integra vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Drag Race

November 7th, 2023

This race represents auto enthusiasts from both ends of the economic spectrum. The Porsche comes in with a price tag of about $1.5-million. On the other hand, the Acura is custom built from salvage parts and aftermarket performance goodies. Safe to say, it’s worth far less than the 918. The real question is, can the modified Acura keep up with the stock Porsche on the dragstrip? The all-wheel drive 918 Spyder features a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 engine and a pair of electric motors. All combined, the Spyder can generate 887hp and 944 lb.-ft. of torque. The Porsche also Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Camaro vs. Big Turbo AWD Honda Civic – Drag Racing

September 21st, 2023

Here we have an import versus domestic throwdown on a closed course. The Hoonigan group have put together this turbocharged matchup and it is off the chain. Let’s have a look at the machinery. In the left lane is the 1993 Honda Civic EG. Far removed from a docile sub-compact hatchback, this asphalt alligator features an all-wheel drivetrain with a 5-speed manual transmission. Scavenged from various Honda models, the all-wheel drive setup gives this car a distinct advantage when grip is difficult to find. The engine is a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder Acura with a big turbo. He’s claiming 900hp but Read More

Import Extravaganza – Foreign vs. Domestic Street Hits

August 8th, 2023

Tonight, we are jumping on the interstate (in Mexico) for some heads-up roll racing. Cars with 1,000+ HP are in attendance and prepared to throwdown in the cool night air. Grab ahold of something and hang on tight – it’s about to be pandemonium.

Ugly Duckling R32 Swapped Civic vs. Mustang GT – Street Hits

June 14th, 2023

In a rare occurrence of daytime street racing, we have a radically modified Honda Civic taking on a gently massaged Ford Mustang GT. Let’s skip directly to the stars of this show (the cars). First up is one of the ugliest imports you will ever see. This Honda Civic coupe looks like a cobbled-up mess. The rear bumper is MIA, and the paint is horrific. Where this car shines is under the hood. The tiny four-cylinder has been removed and a 3.2-liter J32 motor takes its place. Maintaining the front-wheel drive platform of the original Civic, the plenum of the Read More

1400HP Acura vs. 1300HP Nissan GT-R – Drag Racing

November 8th, 2022

These are two very scary pieces of machinery. There are two phrases that warn of impending doom for the competition. They are English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS). This Acura is closely associated with both. T1 Race Development are no slouches either. They built the Nissan GT-R. Needless to say, we are in for quite a drag race today. The 1994 Acura Integra GSR is outfitted with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual (PPG with a billet bell housing) gearbox. It has been modified with an all-wheel drivetrain from a variety of Honda SUVs. The motor is Read More
