Peugeot Moped With A V8

Peugeot 103 with-custom V8

Some people are not happy using a factory engine. Instead they want to build something unique. Take for example this Peugeot 103 moped powered by a custom V8 engine. The builder took eight single-cylinder engines and combined them into one V8. The website is in French so I wasn’t able to get a lot of information. Still the photos and videos speak for themselves.

Mad Jag - twin-turbo Power Stroke diesel powerd Jaguar sedan

I wrote about this Jaguar sedan powered by a twin-turbo Ford Power Stroke diesel before but I wasn’t able to find much about it. I was very pleased when the builder recently got in contact with me and pointed me to their Facebook page. More videos and pictures can be found there.

1956 Volvo Tractor With Volvo 940 Motor

1956 Volvo BM Terrier tractor with turbocharged Volvo B230FT engine

Vianor has released a video showing a souped-up 1956 Volvo BM Terrier tractor. The front suspension has been reinforced and upgraded and the frame was extended 18 cm (7 inches). The engine is sourced from a Volvo 940 turbo (B230FT) with a Volvo 240 head. They used a Saab Turbo Prospark ignition and fuel system. With the turbo outputting 0.75 bar (10.8 psi) the engine outputs 225 horsepower which is good enough for a 60 mph top speed. I am sure this is being limited by the transmission.

An older video with the previous Volvo engine.

1935 Custom Truck With A Mid-engine V8

custom 1935 mid-engine truck with 350 ci V8

This truck sure has been built from one diverse parts bin. The body is made from a 1935 pickup cab and 1934 Ford hood. The drivetrain is made from a 1993 Chevy 350 ci V8, Turbo 350 automatic transmission, and 1984 Jaguar diff. The front suspension is made from a 1963 International front axle and Mustang II rack setup. All of it tied together with a custom frame. It is currently being listed on eBay for $4K. The truck is being sold by a friend because the builder passed away suddenly. I sure hope it finds a new home.
