  • Hatchet - Alex Hilliard

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Hatchet came to us as a beautiful roller that already had the chassis, body, bed, and some of the interior already completed.  Alex commissioned us to finish the truck so that he and his family could enjoy it this summer.  We had to do the wiring, plumbing, some fabrication, interior, etc.  The goal is to be able to hand him the keys and take it on a trip or straight to the racetrack.  Hatchet rolls on a No Limit Pro-Tech Chassis and has a full float 9", LS3, T56 Magnum, Boze Forged wheels, and sticky BFG Rival S tires.  Keep checking this gallery for weekly updates until it hits the road!

  • Attacking the Clock w/ Shawn Bassett

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    January 4th I flew down to Orlando Florida to help our friend, Shawn Bassett (Attacking the Clock), get his 240z wired.  I spent 4 long days wiring the chassis, gauges, lighting, and powering up the PCM.  The week prior we shipped down our tools and a new Racepak Smartwire power distribution system.  We spent a lot of time planing the harness in such a way that it could be easily removed when the car needed to be serviced.  The harness we broken down into sub harnesses that could be unplugged and the main PDM and ECM left in the vehicle.  The dash harness can be left in the dash and unplugged to make the dash removal an easier process.  The front lighting sub harness is also removable in cases where the engine, radiator, or front tube assy needs to be removed.  We also spent about 8 hours drawing diagrams for

  • Bruce's VooDoo Cruiser

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    This 1969 FJ40 Land Cruiser came to us via another local builder, Voodoo Cruisers.  Andy and his team have built a ton of Land Cruisers and had built a successor to this 69 for his client Bruce.  When Bruce came back for a second build, he wanted this one to be LS powered and have some upgrades that Voodoo had not done before.  Andy will ultimately finish the truck but we are going to handle most of the mock up stage.  Together with Andy and Bruce, we decided to go with a Chevrolet Performance crate LS3 with 495hp.  Behind the LS3 will be a new NV4500 5-speed.  A mid 80's offset transfer case from Toyota will be mated to the 5-speed with a kit from Advanced Adapters.  We are installing the drivetrain in the original chassis that Voodoo had cleaned up and got into a roller.  Our universal LS engine

  • The Hotness!

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Daniel is an active duty military man with a passion for all things off-road.  He has owned a number of Jeeps and spent a lot of time building some fun rigs.  This year he developed a dream to go racing and came up with a solid plan to purchase a build that was already finished.  After selling his last Jeep he was able to purchase a rock bouncer and went straight to the woods.  During his first hour in the buggy it developed a transmission cooler leak and fluid started to spray on the right header!  Daniel had no idea a leak had developed until the car burst into flames.  Him and his buddies got the fire extinguished fairly quick but not without a serious amount of fire damage.  Daniel was already registered to race the new rig within a month and wouldn't miss it!  He brought the car to

  • Avery's Exhaust

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Avery is a guy from St Louis that is building a resto-modded '56 Chevy 210.  He contacted us to build him a nice exhaust system to complement his chassis and suspension.  We had the factory LS3 exhaust manifolds Cerakoted to keep them from rusting as quickly and built a custom exhaust.  The exhaust is all 2.5" T304 stainless and all mandrel bent.  The challenge on this one was building it in a way that was completely serviceable.  Since this frame had a large inner stiffener with exhaust passthroughs, it needed to be able to come apart in large sections.  For instance the front flange would not fit through the hole in the frame nor would the mufflers or hangers.  Our design allows the front section to slide out of the mufflers.  The tail pipes are independent and secured with v-band assembly while the mufflers can slide back through the holes

  • Terry's Gone Plumb Crazy

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    This project started out with a well restored 1970 Charger RT in plumb crazy purple.  It was a period correct restoration but not a numbers matching car.  The original 440 / 4 speed were matching but were off by a few months and the original color of the car was originally blue.  The whole plan behind buying a restored car was to save money on body work, paint, interior, glass, trim, etc.  With the perfect car sourced we had to come up with a plan to turn it into the car that he wanted to drive.  Schwartz Performance in Woodstock Illinois has become known for their ability to put a full chassis under the stock floor of the Mopar cars.  We purchased their G Machine chassis as well as options for a Hellcat engine.  They provided us with a set of engine mounts, custom headers, and a modified Canton rear sump

  • Adam's 1969 Firebird

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Adam's 1969 Firebird had been previously restored when it came to us.  However, it had the original drivetrain, brakes, suspension, steering, etc and he wanted to improve all those areas of the car.  The paint and body were okay too but wanted to get that stuff dialed in as well.  One of the first times we met with Adam he mentioned that during the first restoration he expected to be able to do a good burn out, do a donut, and hold his own if someone ever challenged him at a stop light.  When he got the car back the first time around he was left disappointed in it's performance.  One of his colleagues even mentioned that his wife's new accord could out run his Firebird... After enough disappointment and frustration he decided to redo the car.  We came up with a simple plan to give him the performance he

  • Jed's 408ci LS Buggie

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Judd recently bought this buggy used with a few known issues.  It came with a rough running engine, a transmission that didn't feel quite right, and some over heating problems.  Once we put a good set of fans on it and replaced a bad coolant temperature gauge we found that we had resolved the overheating problem.  However when we replaced the temp gauge we suspected that the oil pressure gauge was faulty as well due to a very low reading.  We installed a mechanical gauge on the engine and found that the engine actually did have low oil pressure.  It would idle at 10psi cold and not gain more than 15psi from a rev.  We installed a new oil pump to try and fix the issue but found no change in pressure.  With that we knew that the engine would have to come out to be fixed.  We decided to

  • Chase's Avalanche

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    This truck is another project that had been to a couple shops before it made it's way here.  The original plan before it came to us was simple....  Blower, cam, converter.  Just another 150hp over stock and retain reliability.  Somehow that got all messed up and the truck couldn't even drive down the road.  Chase brought the truck in and we came up with a new game plan... start over.  His stock engine only had 53k miles on it but the previous shop had pulled the stock pistons and replaced them and put a weird cam in it. That along with them changing out the trans and transfer case for stuff that we didn't agree with all led to the full redo.  We ended up going with a Texas Speed 402cu in engine based off of an Aluminum LS2 block.  It's 9.7:1 compression with Wiseco pistons, TSP rods and forged

  • Bonnie

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    A couple years ago we helped Jon build a 69 iron head chopper.  It was exactly what he wanted...  8 over girder front end, rigid frame, sissy bar, kick only, jockey shift, suicide clutch, no front brake, etc.   He rode it a couple times but never really got comfortable enough to ride it more.  He also had a soft tail that was his main rider at the time so naturally that was the easy one to hop on and head out.  Long story short, he ended up selling the chopper and kept the soft tail for a couple more years.  Last winter he got the itch to build another bike with the same ideas as last time.  No front brake, big sissy bar, king and queen seat, rise in the frame, 8 over front end, the works.  But this time around I had to try and keep him from himself

  • 1967 Camaro / 4L70E Conversion

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    The Sulivan's purchased their 67 Camaro last year and had a great time cruising around and attending some local car shows.  After a couple further trips on the interstate they decided that an automatic transmission would better suite them than the 4 speed manual that was in the car.  Their car is a beautifully restored one with a great running small block 350 under the hood.  After a meeting with them the decision was made to upgrade to a Chevrolet Performance 4L70E transmission.  This transmission would hold the power of the small block or an LS3 if they ever made that change... Wink wink.  If also came with a great 12 month unlimited mileage warranty.  Since the car had original gauges we installed a module that would read the pulses from the new vehicle speed sensor and spin the speedometer cable.  We also calibrated it to GPS speed after we

  • Heathen

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    The Heathen was 90% mocked up and most of the fabrication was done when it came to us.  The owner had spent a year or so building this rig and had done a great job but time was running out before his season started.  We were employed to finish mock up, tear it down and have everything painted and powder coated, reassemble, plumb everything, get it all wired, fire it up, and give it back to him.  When we were done he could get the axles back under it and have the EFI and shocks tuned before the season started.  This project was a blast for us and we can't wait to see some pictures of it competing.

  • Hardy's 1952 F1 Refresh

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Sadly this build started like too many others we've seen.  Over promised and under delivery from another shop...  This truck was a father and son project that needed some help when it came to the drivetrain and suspension installation.  They took it to a shop who was supposed to have experience in bother areas and would get the truck on the road for them.  After 5 years at that shop and nothing done correctly they found it time to look for help elsewhere.  After seeing our shop truck at LS Fest they thought that we may be the right match for the help they were needing.  They brought the LSF1 five and a half hours and dropped it off with us.  Our job was to go back through everything and make sure this truck could actually drive down the road reliably and give them some enjoyment for years to come.

  • Back in Black

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    May we introduce to you, “Back in Black”, a 1992 Z28 25th anniversary Camaro. We are excited to be a part of this project.  This has been a restoration of the body and chassis with a slew of modifications along the way. Our customer bought this car locally and had started working on it himself.  After a good amount of maintenance work he noticed some rust in the floor pans and inner rocker panels.  He decided to bring the car by and let us inspect the car to determine what needed to be done to make the car safe.  Together we decided that there was just too much rust littered throughout the car for it to stay together.  The decision was made to pull the car apart, have it blasted, and replaced all of the infected portions of metal.  With any Camaro holding the title of Z28 and being an anniversary

  • Jeep CJ7 LSX Swap

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    This CJ was built by a good friend a few years ago.  Over the past few years, Jeff, the owner found the big block chevy's that he was running to be a poor fit for him.  He ran one low on oil and wore a cam lobe off the second engine.  Aggravated with having the Jeep apart more than it was on the trail meant it was time to come up with a better plan.  By now I'm sure you all know that we use the GM LS engine in most of our projects.  The reason is that it fits the budget, the chassis, and the romantic image you had in your head of it staying on the road and you enjoying it.  So many times people end up with the vehicle they pictured but forgetting the constant issues of oil leaks, belts coming off, poor start ups from it

  • The Extended Cab Power Wagon

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    The power wagon came to us as an original paint body with a farm bed on a 1991 Dodge 1 ton frame.  It already had a 12v cummins engine and NV4500 trans.  The owner wanted to put an 8' bed back on and extend the cab to give some more leg room.  We also extended the running boards, built a custom rear bumper, and built a storage box inside the bed.  In the engine bay we built new intercooler piping and an air intake.  We painted the body a 2013 Chrysler metallic red and had all the fenders, running boards, and fabricated parts powder coated.  The fenders were powder coated in a primer multiple times and blocked out to get them smooth before the black was applied.  We also built a customer 4" exhaust that goes under the frame and exits at the rear of the truck.  We updated the
