Hey, if we’re going to show you a 1,000hp wheel VW we need to back it up with something making even more power, right? How about a stunning 1,500hp Pontiac that uses twin turbos on an engine that uses a FACTORY IRON BLOCK AND FACTORY D-PORT HEADS. Sorry for screaming that part but this is freaking wild. The whole car is among the coolest things we have seen in a long, long time. A planetary style transmission, the Pontiac engine, and license plates mean that this thing is as bad ass a street car as exists in our known universe.
The video is part of the Master of FASTER web series that is centered around the work and racing exploits of Pennsylvania’s Andy Jensen. This is a guy who has had six second street cars for more than 20 years, kicked ass in the IHRA with a single turbo small block pro mod, and knows how to not only build bad ass stuff, but make good stuff even better.
The car came to Andy’s shop for dyno tuning and as you will see at the start of the video, Andy is convinced that they are going to throw the crank clear out of the block by the end of the session. What actually happens is that the mill drastically out performs the expectations of Jensen and the car’s owner by a mile.
You just have to watch this and always remember, block from a 1968 Bonneville and factory D-port iron freaking heads on this monster. SO GOOOOOD!
