This beast of a Camaro proves used engines can perform better than new ones. Its owner wanted something he could drive every day and on long trips, so had a full-custom LS2 built to 500 horsepower and 430 torques. And damn, does it look mean.
The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is the car you need. While not as powerful as the Z06 or ZR1 models, it still outpaces the base model at every turn. I’ve heard an owner refer to this car as “the most perfectly balanced corvette for city driving.” -Random Dude in a Restaurant (2017)
In 1962, the first AC Cobras were powered by a 4.3L(260 cu.in.) Ford V8 at the request of American automotive designer Carroll Shelby. By 1967, Shelby and AC Cars were offering a Cobra fitted with a Ford 427 engine. The standard 427 edition was capable of 425 hp and had a top speed of 164 mph. The competition edition on the other hand created 485 hp and had a top speed of 185 mph.
We love the Celica. It’s underrated, inexpensive, and reliably built. A vintage example is the perfect pairing for a 22RE. This beauty lives in California, home of rust-free classics parked on every corner. It’s an example of a swap that simply improves on the experience of the original car without losing the spirit of that which came before.
