Ka-POW Video: The Lsx Willys Atomically Kills An Engine At Orlando – Oopsie!

Ka-POW Video: The Lsx Willys Atomically Kills An Engine At Orlando – Oopsie!

The LSx Willys is one of the most interesting and cool drag racing stories of the last several years. Through the power of its sheer awesomeness as well as the power of social media and people seeing it, the thing has become a force of nature in and unto itself. The LSx Willys can now be seen all over the country, it has been the featured attraction at a ton of drag races and people can totally spot the thing for 1,000 yards. It was raced for its early life with no cage at all. It now has a cage and a bunch of tire on the back. The result? The thing is faster than lightning and as you will humorously see in this video, it is so fast that that the owner of the thing, Justin Miller can’t actually tell the person he is talking to what it ran because “there’s a camera” on him. Say what you want but this thing is bringing kids out to the strip in droves.

The engine is a “junkyard” LS engine that was getting a face full of nitrous from a full compliment of Nitrous Outlet components and it was making some major league steam. That was all well and good until he lifted at the top end and it was at that point when a rod found a nice spot to blast a cannon shot sized hole in the side of the block, leaving the wrist pin sitting on the frame rail.

The good news is that there is a Dart based 427 engine that is heading into the Jeep with as much Nitrous Outlet spray as it can handle on tap. If you thought the thing was stupid (secretly) fast now? Wait until you see what’s next. Oh, and the screen capture lead photo was grabbed as the Willys as headed for the 330′ cone and note what is under the front wheels.

    Ha ha ha ha ha!

    Another LS bites the dust!

    Rumor has it that this LS was the dopest, flyist, O.G. pimp hustler gangster, Hardcore motherfucker being run at any strip anywhere but he went cheap and put in ford wrist pins in it and they jumped out of the motor like a little blue oval bitch. To be honest, I’m totally and completely on Chevys dick. Bow Ties for power and for easy release during my auto-erotic asphyxiation fun on Thursdays at the Fruit Cellar
