Canadian hospitality is awesome, and so is Toronto’s street racing scene! We’re never sure what to expect anywhere we go, but we were surprised to see the Toronto street cars gather together on such short notice to show us how they get down! Supercharged Vettes, Old school Mazda’s, even some shocking Hellcats came out to play! Some of these cars we’re just getting dialed in, which shows there is still lots of potential to put Toronto’s street car scene on the map!
JRod and Real Street have assembled the baddest street car Supra running in the 7’s and have taken it on Drag Week for the ultimate street car test! Unfortunately in racing, not everything goes according to plan…and this is one of those moments. With Jay from Real Street behind the wheel, the head gasket in the Supra decided it was done for the day and sent Jay into a slide across the finish with flames starting to emit from under the hood! What happened next is nothing short of pure insanity!
The 13th episode of Engine Masters, presented by AMSOIL, is an unlucky one for a poor little 305ci Chevy small-block. It was the victim of our test of how much nitrous oxide power boost can be tolerated by a completely stock short-block with the original cast crank, rods, and pistons. Yeah, it ends badly, but before the engine’s demise we learn a lot, showing you how nitrous oxide increases horsepower and giving you tips on how to use it safely on any engine. You’ll also learn a pretty good power combo for a 305 Chevy! Engine Masters is supported by Mr. Gasket and Earl’s Vapor Guard.
Megalodon is an obnoxiously loud war machine that is a legitimate threat on no prep surfaces! These guys came out to Outlaw Armageddon and entered into the Race Your Way In class to get the chance to compete with the biggest and baddest names in no prep history! Facing all kinds of heavy competition, Brent and Megalodon geared up for 6 brutal rounds of Race Your Way In rounds!
My question is where the fuck did you get a motor from a 458? That must have cost a mad grip.
Pro drifter Ryan Tuerck just became the first person to drift the road course at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and now he’s given us a taste of his next mad-scientist project: dropping a Ferrari 458 engine into a Toyota GT86.
The video opens up with a bare-bones white GT86 frame, completely stripped of wheels, interior, and drivetrain. What we see next is the 458 supercar’s F136 4.5-liter flat-plane V-8 in all its glory, with various parts taped off and ready for installation. The music shifts to give us a sample of what the engine sounds like – a very different engine note from the twin-turbo Toyota 2JZ inline-six currently sitting in Tuerck’s Scion FR-S. In the 458 Italia, the rev-happy V-8 made an explosive 562 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque.
We see the Italian engine sitting in the Japanese sports car’s engine bay, but the “how” of the build has yet to be revealed. As the engine is positioned now, the Ferrari’s sculpted intake manifold rests well above the hood line. It also remains to be seen what transmission will be used, as the V-8 originally sat in a midship layout in the 458 Italia, and was joined to a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle. Who knows if the engine is in its final position or the builders just did a quick mockup for the video.
We’re left with the message, “Stay Tuned,” and we expect Tuerck to post more details on this insane swap in the near future.
Bryce Menzies made history by jumping his off-road truck 379.4 feet over a New Mexico ghost town to set a new truck distance record. The project, entitled “Bryce Menzies New Frontier powered by Pennzoil® Synthetics,” saw Menzies launch ramp-to-ramp in his Pro 2 (two-wheel drive) race truck, soaring past the official Guinness World Records distance record of 301 feet as well as the unofficial record of 332 feet. An adjudicator for Guinness World Records was on-site to verify the distance and authenticate the new record.
In this episode of Hot Rod Garage presented by Lincoln Tech, we decide to upgrade all the necessary things to make our 1966 Fury Wagon (which is housing a 512ci V-8) safe. Watch Tony Angelo and Lucky Costa install 4 Piston disc brakes, an upgraded transmission, and axles to handle the power of our big-block Mopar. Once that’s sorted and she’s a reliable driver, we turn the power way up with cylinder heads, an intake manifold, a header, and a big, new Holley carburetor—just to make sure this car is still way out of control! Once we’re done, watch Tony literally tear the tires off the #furyroadmaster in our most epic testdrive ever!
This is a lap in my Mazda MX-5 NC 2,0 Sport Roadster Coupé.
