Old vs. New – 1987 Buick GN vs. 2015 Hellcat

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome back to the streets (of Mexico, naturally) for a battle between the best of the eighties and what was (for a short time) the most powerful muscle car to ever come out of Detroit. In the right lane is the legendary Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. At the car’s production, it was the baddest car to roll off a Detroit assembly line. Equipped with a supercharged 6.4-liter HEMI V8, the Hellcat is capable of churning out 707hp. On the left, we have the beautiful black Buick Grand National from the eighties. It was also the Read More

Underdog EcoBoost Mustang vs. ZL1 Camaro and Dodge Demon

Who’d a thunk it? A four-cylinder Ford beating up on a supercharged Camaro and a supercharged HEMI Challenger? This is crossing over into otherworldly territory. It’s flat out spooky. One thing’s for sure; this ain’t your ordinary four-banger. This is the 2018 Ford Mustang “EcoBeast” with a tuned 2.3-liter turbocharged engine. In factory trim, this car is making more horsepower than many (so-called) V8 muscle cars from back in the day. The tiny four-cylinder is capable of making 310hp and 350lb.-ft. of torque right out of the box. Car and Driver magazine has it clocked at a 5.1-second zero-to-sixty and Read More

Tesla Tackles Hot Rod Drag Week 2019

With a name like Hot Rod Drag Week, one might think this was more about all-out horsepower than consistency. Truth is that Hot Rod Drag Week is a series of Index Drag Races, and consistency is key. So, what could be more consistent than a Tesla? As it turns out, not much. Hot Rod Drag Week is comprised of drag racing on four tracks in five days. The truly sinister part of it is – the circuit between the drag strips adds up to more than 1,000-miles. That’s a long road trip in a car that is designed for maximum Read More

Ford Swapped Nova – 3000HP Menace

Contemptable sacrilege or common sense? Guess that depends on how doggedly you cling to the status quo. At any rate, this is one that’ll get a lot of people’s blood boiling. A giant Ford motor in a classic Chevy? Oh, the humanity! Just kidding. Fact is that every racer is smart to use what is most accessible at the time. This time it’s a 1969 Chevrolet Nova – abandoned by the car owner’s son for 25-years – loaded with a massive twin turbocharged Boss Nine 565 cubic-inch big block engine. The mill is built by Jon Kaase Racing Engines and Read More

8-Second Twin Turbo S10 Pickup – Drag Racing

Burnt orange is a beautiful thing on an automobile. So is a big motor with a pair of turbochargers. This S10 pickup truck just happens to have both. Let’s take a closer look at this sweet ride. The heart of this 8-second street monster is a forged 370-cubic inch LS engine (Trick Flow cylinder heads) with a pair of massive turbochargers. Holley fuel injection components and a Holley intake manifold are also on full display. On 24-pounds of boost, the truck produced 1,100hp to the rear wheels. It is (officially) a beast.
