Hellcat Swapped Mazda Miata – Dyno and Street Hits

There’s just nothing better than a big old domestic V8 crammed into the engine bay of a tiny sports car. If you do it right, it’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Well, there is no smaller sports car than a Mazda Miata and no bigger (from a horsepower standpoint) V8 than a Dodge SRT Hellcat Supercharged. Today, we join VMP Performance in the Sunshine State as they tweak and tune this orange creation using the dyno. Looks like the little roadster has been stripped to the gills. All the passenger comforts have been removed in lieu of performance. Read More

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. Don’t spit into the wind. Don’t pull on the mask of the old Lone Ranger and you don’t mess around with Jim! Who’s Jim? I don’t know but he’s driving a Viper.

GT-R Battle – Mercedes AMG vs. Nismo

This clip features a battle of the GT-Rs; specifically, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R and the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo. From a sticker shock standpoint, both cars are reasonably priced (for supercars) at $160 to $200k for the real-wheel drive Mercedes and $176.5k to $177.5k for the all-wheel drive Nissan. As one might imagine, both these cars are amply heeled in the area of performance. The Benz comes with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter DOHC (32-valve) V8 engine that is capable of producing 577hp @ 6,250 RPM and 516 lb.-ft. of torque @ 1,900 RPM. The Nismo is equipped a twin-turbo 3.8-liter Read More

Black Beauty – 900WHP Buick Regal V6

In 1987, the fastest American made production car was not powered by a V8 engine. The car was the Buick Grand National GNX and the engine was a 3.8-liter V6 with a turbocharger. Nothing spectacular but enough push to put them on top of the heap. Meet Jerry. He loves Grand Nationals and owns three. Today, Jerry has agreed to walk us through his pride and joy. It’s a 1987 GN with only 36k miles on the chassis. The running gear has even less. It’s still a V6 but it has been fortified with all the best internal components. Jerry Read More

LT1 Gen IV Camaro – 8.01-Second Quarter-Mile

Let’s drop in at Street Car Takeover and have a look at a beast of a Gen IV Camaro.

Powered by what the driver calls the “Junk LT” this Gen II LT1 engine is built with an economy crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons. Cramming air down the snout of this unlikely mill is a Precision (8891) 88-millimeter turbo. The transmission is a manual T56 built by Tick Performance. It’s loaded with their clutch components and hardware. Output at the rear Read More
