Uglier than a drown rat and more fun than a barrel of monkeys, Lucky Costa’s 1200hp supercharged 1967 Chevy C10 is a street racer’s dream. Proving true the old adage that “it ain’t how you look, it’s what you have under the hood” Lucky (Hot Rod Garage) gives us an inside look at what makes this ugly truck so darn fast. Let’s begin underneath. First, a full QA1 suspension system (front and rear) adds an unbelievable degree of stability to the old work truck.

Stapleton Sleeper – Turbo GMC Yukon

June 30th, 2021

Keeping in mind that Mitchell Stapleton (Stapleton Auto Works) already owns a 9-second Cadillac Escalade (LSXCalade), one might wonder why he is building a turbo Yukon SUV. Well, you need something to drive on the streets, right? And what is better than a turbocharged street sleeper of a supersize grocery-getter – especially if it is full of childhood memories. Let’s see where Mitchell is at with this build before he hits the track. Under the hood, the big Tahoe has been modified with a Force Performance 7275 turbocharger. A hand-me-down e-bay crossover manifold transfers all that boost to the top Read More

Rolling Coal – Smoke-Stang Gets Twin Turbo’d

June 24th, 2021

Greetings drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts from every ilk. Remember Westin Champlin and his turbo diesel Gen VI Mustang? Well, he’s back and looking to beef his Smoke-Stang up to the next level. How – you might ask – do you improve upon a late model Ford Mustang with a 5.9-liter inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel? Obviously, you add a second turbo to the mix! Opting to go the economy route, Wes found himself a used turbocharger from a semi-truck. He then purchased a turbocharger installation kit from Evil Performance. With only a few modifications, the second turbocharger was installed Read More

1000HP IROC Z28 – Twin Turbo Street Beast

June 1st, 2021

This video features a car that is often overlooked by performance enthusiasts. The “Square Nose” Gen III Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in an era when performance was not a consideration for automakers. Having said that, the IROC (International Race of Champions) version of the Camaro was definitely the top of the heap. When this Z-Car came to Jessie’s Performance, it was a nice enough street car with very little sizzle. Immediately, the car owner made it clear, he wanted a race car. Jessie was pleased to accommodate. First of all, the exterior of this car is pristine. It is fully Read More

Greetings drag racing fans and speed freaks from every corner of the globe. Allow me to introduce Westen Champlin and his Cummins swapped cherry red Mustang known as Smoke-Stang. Westin took the Smoke-Stang from the humble beginnings of a wrecked V6 to the coal rolling powerhouse you see in this video. Stuffed under the hood of this Gen VI Mustang is a turbocharged 5.9-liter Cummins inline 6-cylinder. A notorious torque monster, the Cummins mill is mated to a stock (V6) driveshaft and rear end. Will the factory components hold up against the mighty turbodiesel or will there be a catastrophic Read More
