Infiniti G35 With 1500 A Horsepower Twin-turbo V8

1500 horsepower twin-turbo 427 cubic-inch LSx V8 inside Infiniti G35

The owner of this 427 ci LSx powered Infiniti G35 brought it to D3 Performance in Houston, Texas for more power, a lot more power. The goal was to create a twin-turbo setup capable of 1,500+ whp to compete in roll-racing events and TX2K. To meet that goal D3 Performance installed a pair of Precision 7175 turbos, a 4L80E automatic transmission for quick shifts, and a Pro EFI 128 system to control it all. If you are fan of pretty TIG welds you will enjoy going through the images on the this build.

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.

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.
