FWD 1100HP Turbo Acura vs RWD Nitrous Mopar – Drag Race

May 6th, 2021

This is a tale of two very different cars. The first is a turbocharged, front-wheel drive import with a four-cylinder engine. The second is a domestic production, rear-wheel drive car powered by a massive V8 engine with “just a bit” of nitrous. Settle in and let’s see how this one shakes out. On the import side is a 1992 Acura Integra GSR. It has been thoroughly modified with a built (1.9-liter) engine and a big turbo. Maximum output is dyno certified to be 1,100hp. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic and the GSR weighs in at 2,450-pounds. Very little about Read More

Import Extravaganza – TX2K21 Streets

April 23rd, 2021

  When these gearheads are not laying it down on the track, they take all the smack talk, posturing and competitive spirit to the streets (of Mexico). Unfortunately, even the best laid plans sometimes come unraveled. When this TX2K21 Cash Days fell apart, these racers set out on a spontaneous evening of grudge racing and call outs. The imports were the feature attraction, and they did not disappoint. First up is a contest between an all-wheel drive K20 turbo hatchback Honda Civic and a – hold up, the cops arrive and shut the whole thing down. That necessitates a change Read More

E85 Jeep Trackhawk vs. Acura NSX – Street Dig Pass

April 13th, 2021

This clip just goes to show that you never know what you will roll up against on the street. You can’t blame a guy (or gal) for wanting to push the limits of their new sports car. How else are you going to know what it will do? However, a spoonful of discretion may save you a truck load of embarrassment if you call out the wrong sled. First, ask what modifications have been performed on your potential victim. Most hot-rodders and gearheads will tell you all about what has been done to their precious ride. Next, just listen. If Read More

World’s Fastest Lamborghini – TX2K21 Final Day

March 25th, 2021

Today is the day that kings are crowned, and peasants are sent packing. It’s the final day of season opening TX2K21 at Houston Raceway Park and there is high-octane drama in every class. Let’s drop in and have a look. Right out of the gate, we are treated to a run by a lime green old school Mazda RX7. This car looks like a million bucks and he posts an impressive run of 7.01-seconds @ 204 mph. The next race features a booger green Mustang owned by Brad LeSalle. When it’s all over, he posts a run of 7.21-seconds @ Read More

California Cash Days – 16 Car Shootout

March 11th, 2021

Welcome to the (southern) left coast, where the weather is always sunny and the racing is street. Here in the Golden State, this is how they run Cash Days – 16 cars at a time. Racing is single elimination, and the rules are simple. Don’t leave early. Don’t cross the center line in front of your opponent. Be first across the finish line. That’s it. By the way, it’s winner take all. Have a look. In the first race, we have a twin turbo Nissan GT-R against a nitrous Pontiac Ventura (Chevy Nova). After an abbreviated burnout, the Pontiac cuts Read More

Night Drags – C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs Acura NSX

February 26th, 2021

Import versus domestic is the new standard grudge match when it comes to virtually every form of racing. The grudge is well represented in this contest between the flagship of the GM lineup and the best that Acura (Honda) has to offer. Both vehicles are stock (or nearly stock). The C7 (2014-2019) Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a beast of a street car. Equipped with an LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, the C7 Z06 can make 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The LT4 power plant features such innovative performance components as Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads and a 1.7-liter Eaton Read More

Honda Powered MR-2 Runs First 8-Second Quarter-Mile

October 23rd, 2020

This video answers the decade old question of “what can I do to make my tiny mid-engine sports car faster”? The answer for Toyota MR-2 owner Kyle Wade and his BoostedBoiz crew was to scrap the Toyota mill and replace it with a Honda unit. Just add a pair of massive turbochargers and – kaboom! – you are ready to dominate the competition. No matter who you are – quarter-mile passes in the 8-second range are pretty impressive in most circles. Kyle says that this Toyota is running a built and sleeved K24 (2.4-liter) Honda engine with a cylinder head Read More

Record Breaking Honda S2000 – Half-Mile Airstrip Attack

October 9th, 2020

The standing half-mile is an excellent test of top speed and durability. The 2020 Indy Airstrip Attack attracted some of the most capable half-mile machines in the country. One of the most capable of these competitors is a Honda S2000 with a heck of an attitude. Car owner Stuart Leiby and T1 Race Development have built a record shattering Honda S2000 without even swapping the engine. Under the hood is the stock F22C1 DOHC Vortec motor (block and crankshaft) with a 68-millimeter Xona Rotor turbocharger. The F22C1 motor is cylinder sleeved from the factory, making it an ideal candidate for Read More

1000HP Turbo Charger Hellcat – Street Hits

June 2nd, 2020

No, your eyes have not failed you – this Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat sedan is rocking a turbocharger and a supercharger. Whoa! Wait a minute. While there is a supercharger bolted between the cylinder heads, it is only being used as an intake manifold. It has a belt but no guts inside. A turbocharger has taken its place as the sole source of forced air induction. The stock (6.2-liter HEMI) engine block has been upgraded with performance pistons and connecting rods. The crankshaft is factory, but the camshaft has also been upgraded. The turbocharger is a Borg Warner S488 SX-E Read More

550HP Rear Engine Acura Integra – Trolling the Streets

May 28th, 2020

You boys (and girls) like Mexico? I certainly hope so, ‘cause it is time to dip down into Old Mexico for some door-handle-to-door-handle roll racing on the interstate. Featured in this video is a rear-wheel drive Acura Integra with a rear mounted engine. Yeah, an engine in the trunk! As the cameraman climbs onboard, this driver searches the streets for some V8 powered cruisers to shock. Let’s see what happens when the rubber meets the road. Powering this unique build is a stock V6 engine (3.0-liter) with a Precision 6466 turbocharger. Everything about this car screams “race ready” but can Read More
