Big Block Swapped Jaguar – 1,000HP Street Sleeper Sedan

May 7th, 2021

Now this is a very bad kitty. The next time that you pull alongside a grandpa in a Jaguar sedan, use your best judgement before you romp on the throttle and challenge him to a race. You may well run up against a crazy car enthusiast like John. This grandpappy has taken a 1970 Jaguar XJ6 and mutated it into a genuine street beast. Under the hood of this “silver bullet” is a 540 cubic-inch Dart motor. That means an aluminum block with a forged crankshaft and pistons, along with powder connecting rods. The cylinder heads are custom fabricated. Everything Read More

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

If you could find a Japanese sports car that could hang with most exotics, would you be interested? How about if you could buy it for a fraction of the price of your average supercar? Interested now? That’s basically what you can have in the Nissan GT-R. Climb in and let’s hit the highway (in Mexico, of course). Depending upon which version of the Nissan GT-R you choose, you can anticipate spending between $115K and $210K for an extremely capable production sports car. The all-wheel drive GT-R is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine. While it is scary 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

800HP Toyota Supra vs Porsche GT2RS and GT3RS

April 16th, 2021

This video takes us from the shop – where we learn how to build a beast of a Toyota Supra – to the dyno to Apex Motor Club for some track time against a couple of rowdy Porsche owners. Hang on to your coat tails ladies, this one is gonna get wild! The Toyota Supra (made by BMW) is an adequate piece of performance machinery from the factory. Trouble is that adequate just don’t blow the whistle for the typical gearhead. Enter Pure Turbo. They make an OEM style true bolt-on turbocharger upgrade that is worth its weight in gold. Read More

1200HP Twin Turbo Audi Build Makes Maiden Voyage

Some time ago, we introduced you to Kyle (from 1320 Video) and showed you his AMS built Audi R8 V10 Plus. The twin turbo build was a thorough undertaking that yielded a street car that makes in excess of 1,200whp. This time, we take you to the track (TX2K21) for the first roll racing hits for this newly built Audi. The car arrives in Texas via the AMS transport from Chicago.

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

7-Second Lexus IS300 – 1300HP Turbo 2JZ

April 9th, 2021

We are back to TX2K21 for this one. Tonight, we meet Murda 2J and he brings us up to speed on his incredible Lexus (Toyota) IS300. Even with a stock (not sleeved) engine block, this compact sedan can claim the title for first IS300 to ever post a 7-second quarter-mile (7.8-seconds). The motor is a stock 2JZGE, which is one of the inline 6-cylinder bottom-ends originally used by Lexus.

The Read More

10-Second All Motor Mustang GT – Street Hits

April 6th, 2021

We’re headed back to the Sunshine State tonight where we’ll meet up with Austin Rodriquez and his 2018 Ford Mustang GT at Palm Beach Dyno. Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel. This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. Read More
