When Bradley Gray builds an engine, he really builds an engine. He is probably best known for his 1969 Camaro with a 468 ci V8 that is both twin-turbocharged and supercharged. His newest project, called “Blown Mafia”, is a 1956 Chevy truck with both a F2 ProCharger and 871 supercharger. Toward the end of the video you can see the Camaro, a C10 truck with two superchargers, and a dragster with three superchargers. The amount of horsepower at the end make my eyes water.
The project involving swapping a Toyota Celica GT-Four into a Mini continues with episode seven. In this episode we find the team finishing the chassis mods and installing electric windows and locks.

There are some that are satisfied with using a small block V8 and then there are people like Mike Sonner from Arcade, NY. Mike is the builder of this Jeep which is powered by four Harley-Davidson Evolution V-Twin engines. BangShift estimates the engines pack 50-60 horsepower for a combined 200-260 horsepower hybrid-monster power plant. Just listening to this thing run would be a treat.

This is the nicest and most expensive 1975 Ford Rancher Squire I have ever seen. It was completed several years ago but now is for sale. It features an all-aluminum Boss 429 HEMI built by JBA Engines which replaced the original Cleveland V8. The custom built motor had its displacement increased to 640 cubic-inches which helps it produce 920 horsepower. The seller estimates around $300,000 went into building it so they are asking $149,000.

The truck has a 1985 Cummins NTC-475 with the factory twin compound turbos which is good for 730 horsepower and tons of torque. The truck is daily driven and gets 15 mpg when driven “smartly”.
