Customers Rides - Anthony's 1971 Malibu Chevelle

Thursday, December 7, 2017 3:52:07 PM America/Los_Angeles

Words and Images: Anthony Ayala

Anthony's 1971 Malibu Chevelle Project from Venezuela.

I got the car in April of this year as my 18th birthday present, I paid $230 for it. I would say my best memory is when I drove the car after the engine swap because it felt like I was in a spaceship when floored it.

It is fast enough to take over new cars on the highway, but unfortunately I have not had the chance to take it to the track. The last car that I raced was 2012 Silverado LT.

The first time I took it to college my friends where calling me Toretto and some of them were saying "let's paint it with a can of oil paint", but when I popped the hood they were amazed and even more when I started it up.

I haven't had swap the interior because I don't want it to be ruined when I take it to the body shop.

Customers Rides - Brian's 1969 Pontiac Firebird

Thursday, December 7, 2017 3:52:07 PM America/Los_Angeles

Words and Images: Brian Bardo

I bought the 96' Pontiac Firebird for $14000.00 in March 2016. It had a 73 Pontiac 350 2BBL Engine, TH400 transmission and 2.73 one wheel wonder rear. Nothing original to the car. So I decided to build a 350 Chevy I had sitting around for years. Purchased a Procomp Electronics head kit from AT Racing World, .30 over Forged Pistons, Comp cams XE268 cam kit, Edelbrock Rpm air gap intake and Holley 750 vac sec. I've also had a 700 R4 transmission built with 2400 Stahl. Also, Auburn posi with 3.73 gears. Haven't been to the track with it or raced anyone yet but it should be running about 375hp / 420tq estimated.

Customers Rides - Josh's 1983 Cutlass

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 3:36:27 PM America/Los_Angeles

Words and Images: Josh Wright

1983 cutlass that I bought back in 2003 for $300. Spent about $4000 that first year to get it ready for the track, and put anything I won back into the car. I daily drove the car for the first 4 or 5 years and then decided to stop street driving and just race it.

The car is still street legal, licenced and insured. I have only run a 1/4 track one time about 10 years ago ran 12.45 at 107mph with a mostly stock 400sbc. I mainly run 1/8 mile at our local track magic city international dragway best run was 7.28 at 93mph.

The car now has a 6.0 ls with h beam rod, forged pistons about 11.5:1 comp, sce proheader ls1 heads, and lingefelter gt1-1 cam. Turbo 350 trans that I built myself, Moser 9" rear housing and axles with stock ford center section.

The best memory is ...

Boost Is King: Can Your Head Gaskets Handle It?

Monday, November 27, 2017 5:06:23 PM America/Los_Angeles

Credits: Dragzine

In today’s enthusiast marketplace, boost equals power. Boost has always been an easy path to ultimate high performance. It was just a little bit more black magic years ago to properly tune a boosted engine than it is today. Having the correct technical knowledge is key to making the most reliable power with boost. Because whether you’re boosting your street car, or trying to blow your heads off at the track, boost is king! But boost–big or small–must be contained within the engine in order to improve performance, and it’s companies like SCE Gaskets who make this possible through the use of their time-tested head gaskets.

While a lot of races are won using boost, lack of control is a big reason that a lot of races are lost because of boost. Blown head gaskets. Blown intake g...

Drag Racing is a sport enjoyed by many.  But how does one become competitive?  What are the most important things to know?  It can take some people years to get the information they need.  I have compiled a top 10 list for you so that you can get the advantage over your competition!

(1) Safety First.

  
drag racing safety

I hate to say it, but this is the most commonly over looked tip.  Maybe it's the machismo of being at the track, or the "I know what I'm doing" attitude, but safety at the track should be job 1.  With 1 pass, there's a lot of people that you need to think about; Driver, crew, track employees, spectators are all there and potentially in harms way.  Take your time, make yourself a safety check list, and enjoy the day.  After all, you usually have hours in ...

How to Identify a Muncie Four Speed

Thursday, May 25, 2017 11:45:36 PM America/Los_Angeles

Technically Speaking: Get it in the right gear




Q: Hello, my name is Zack. My dad and I are in the process of restoring a 1964 Corvette. My hope is that we can get the car running and driving for my senior prom next year.

The Corvette was originally equipped with a Muncie four-speed but the transmission was missing when we bought the car. I know we will probably never find the original transmission but I would like to get the most correct transmission possible for the car.

We recently went to a local swap meet but our problem is that all of the four-speed transmissions look the same. In fact, we bought a BorgWarner transmission by mistake. Is there an easy way to tell which transmission we should be looking for? I guess I am looking for a Muncie transmission guide for dummies.

Thanks,

Zack

How It Works - Pertronix Ignition Systems

Thursday, May 25, 2017 11:33:19 PM America/Los_Angeles

Don Lindfors of Pertronix Performance Products Serves Up an Electrifying Education

At 7,000 rpm, a spark plug ignites the air/fuel mixture nearly 60 times per second. Any one of those 60 sparks going amiss can at best be mildly annoying, and at worst cost you a race or an engine. Now multiply that by eight cylinders, and it's easy to see why a properly functioning ignition system is paramount to performance and reliability. 

Strangely, ignition systems are one of those things that hot rodders seldom think about until something goes wrong. Don't be one of those guys. To get schooled on how to set up a top-notch ignition system for your ride, and get the inside scoop behind the technology that makes it all possible, we had a long, electrifying chat with Don Lindfors of PerTronix Performance Pr...
