The Horsepower guys use a Summit catalog to source all the parts they need for a budget-friendly, high performance smallblock engine build. We'll see what kind of dyno numbers they get from their little mail order monster.
It's Mopar's turn! After completing rock-bottom budget builds on Ford and Chevy engines, Horsepower now gives a Mopar 360 the same treatment. The challenge is to make impressive street power with only about 25-hundred bucks to work with.
It's phase two of the Turbo Stang project. After building a stout, fuel-injected motor, now it's time to build and install the turbocharger. The Horsepower team will show you how to make enough boost to produce 900+ horsepower. And, after they're finished putting the parts together, they'll test the results on their engine dyno. Then, it's time to drop into their old 1992 Mustang.
Mike and Joe continue the buildup of a '68 Mustang built especially for road courses. This time they address the chassis, suspension, brakes, transmission and more.
Teams of students from Wyo Tech will build a 150-horsepower G2 Motorcycle for national competition. The Hot Rod Bike is a joint project with Star Racing and S&S Cycles. Plus, it'll be given away in a Powerblock sweepstakes.
Horsepower launches its first build of a '68 Mustang track car - a ride especially built for the road course. In the first episode, Joe and Mike build a 347 cubic inch smallblock with the right power combination to handle the challenges of road course driving.
After building a 623-horsepower big block engine, Joe and Mike drop it into an '85 Monte Carlo, convert the car to an automatic transmission and take it to the streets for the ultimate test of real world performance.
The Pontiac 400 cubic inch motor - made between 1967 and 1979 - is still a great platform for a high performance daily driver. The Horsepower guys prove that by extracting a 400 from a junkyard, machining the block and rebuilding it on a two-thousand dollar budget. The results of this recycled-power project are pretty impressive when it's dyno time.
After a successful budget build, the Horsepower guys go hog wild with their 454 big block Chevy in an all-out performance buildup. After all the wrenching, they'll dyno the motor again to see if beats the horsepower of their Ford 460 big block.
It's Chevy's turn as Mike and Joe build a classic 454 big block engine on a skimpy budget of 25-hundred dollars. Will it make more horsepower than their recent Ford budget build? The dyno will reveal the answer. Plus, a trip to the annual NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green, KY
The popular '93 "Turbostang" gets new gearing in the Horsepower shop, along with other finishing touches, before a chassis dyno test and then a showdown at the dragstrip.
Joe and Mike put their modified 460 on the dyno with a goal of making 600+ horsepower. Plus, how to convert your LS1 from EFI to an old school carbureted setup.
Horsepower's Ford big block is back! After a low-budget buildup, it's time pull out the stops and see how much power Mike and Joe can cram into it with beefy aftermarket heads, cam and more.
A hotrod cop car? Yep...We help our local Sheriff's Department with one of their Dodge Chargers. With performance upgrades, we'll perform dyno before/after tests, and the deputy/driver will perform his own high-speed, seat-of-the-pants test.
