8.73 @ 153 MPH : RB26 Powered Z

Carrying the front wheels
Clint's RB powered Z answered my last question. Still running the same boost, with a little more tuning, he picked up some tenths, and mph.  The first video, he carrys the front wheels, and loses an intercooler pipe at 330 feet. Coasting though with a 10 second pass.

Sport Compact Car Magazine - 2003 Ultimate Street Car Challenge 3

Sport Compact Car Magazine had a test, they called the Ultimate Street Car Challenge. It was supposed to take one of "our" tuner cars, and put it though a battery of tests, to see the overall winner. The first one was actually won by Fast and Furious technical adviser, Craig Lieberman, in his Toyota Supra. At Motorex, we got involved in the second contest, with Justins R33 GT-R. The third contest should have been with Danny's R33. So even though they call this the third one, it was actually the fourth. Maybe it was the third because it was in 2003? Looking at the dates of the photos we actually did the event the end of September 2002. 3 month lead times, plus the story spread over a couple issues, meant that it was well into 2003 by the time it was published.

9 Second Twin Engine Pontiac GTP

I love sleepers, and weird is cool. This is a twin engine, turbocharged Pontiac GTP, making over 1000 hp according to the video. Two stock engines, and stock transmissions. 139 mph in the quarter is no joke. Fun. Much props out to these guys.

Ben's 9 Second GTP by Turbo Dynamics...
0-60 mph 1.8 seconds
0-100 mph 4.4 seconds
What's is crazy about this project is this is done on stock transmissions and stock engines as well.
TD turbo kits, TD tuning on the ecu and a Magnashift box to control the rear transmission. The rear transmission is from a Cadillac.

The track conditions were very hot and humid.
Racing done at Napierville dragway.

We broke the trans going for 9.4-9.5 seconds. We pushed it too hard off the line with 20 psi on the launch. We now know the limit of the stock Cadillac trans and will work around that and add power after the start.
