Jason Sack’s Turbocharged 429 cid LSX Engine
Jason Sack had arguably one of the nicest Novas we saw during Sick Week 2023. The car’s beauty had some sort of gravitational pull as we walked passed it in the pits. Naturally, we gave in and stopped to have a chat with Jason Sack about his 1969 Nova and its turbocharged 429 cid LSX

Twin-Turbo 347 cid Small Block Ford Engine
Kyle Morris of Steve Morris Engines built up this 1996 Mustang with a twin-turbo 347 cubic inch small block Ford engine primarily by himself.

As Steve Morris’ son, Kyle Morris is no stranger to engine work and drag racing from his seat at Steve Morris Engines. This 1996 Mustang was purchased by Kyle at the age of 15, and he now has it ready to rip 7- and 8-second 1/4-mile passes thanks to an 1,800-horsepower, twin-turbo small block Ford

Twin-Turbo 427 cid LS3-Swapped Buick Hearse
If you’re anything like us, when you see full station wagons drag racing, you stop and take notice. However, when you see a Hearse take to the start line, your brain explodes a little bit. Case in point is Jason Pickett’s 1993 Buick Roadmaster Hearse with a twin-turbo 427 cid LS3 engine capable of 8-second passes!

A Hearse isn’t your typical drag car, but that didn’t stop Jason Pickett from outfitting his 1993 Buick Roadmaster Hearse with all the necessities for the track and the street, including a twin-turbo LS3 engine. This Hearse is definitely “Haulin’ Ash” and it’s our Engine of the Week!
Jessie Harris’ 6.7L Cummins-Swapped Chevy C10
It’s not often you see a diesel-powered car or truck competing at drag-and-drive events. While that’s true, we think there’s a case for more diesel competitors to show up. Jessie Harris thinks so too, as he’s been doing drag-and-drive events and drag racing for a number of years in his Chevy C10 that features a
