  • Betsy, a Lawrence Family Icon

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    When Matt called and told the story of how this truck has been in his family since new, we wanted to help.  Handed down from grand father, to his father, and finally to Matt, this truck has created many memories.  Matt went on to tell the story of even spray painting the roof of the truck when he was in high school.  Matt inherited the truck years ago and wanted to keep the nostalgia but create something he could enjoy for many years to come.  Matt is a hot rodder and spends a lot of time working on projects in his garage.  He had already modified the chassis, installed the suspension and air bags, mocked up the 5.3L / 4L60E swap, and fit the body.  As time and live goes on and free time becomes harder to find, he called and asked if we would be interested and getting the truck

  • Cliff - 1978 Wagoneer

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    The Vaughn family wagoneer project, my wife's dream vehicle. We got this 1978 Jeep a while ago and have been working on it as we can. We are currently replacing the original AMC 360 with a Texas Speed built 6.0L GM LS engine and having the TH400 rebuilt.  The transmission is being built by Bowler Performance Transmission but in a new Chevrolet case.  This will allow us to bolt it directly to the modern LS engine but retain the Wagoneer transfer case.  The engine will be controlled by a Holley Performance EFI system and cooled by an aluminum radiator built by Wizard Cooling.  Stay tuned as we get Cliff back to daily driving duties!

  • Duke - 1948 Crewcab Power Wagon

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    This 1948 Power Wagon has been extended to a full crew cab and sits on top of a heavy duty aftermarket chassis.  The drivetrain consists of a Mopar Performance Hellcat crate engine, 46RE transmission, NP205 transfer case, corporate 14 bolt rear axle and Dodge AAM 925 axle up front.  We received this project as a rolling chassis with the cab mounted.  From there we have spent a huge amount of time dialing in the sheet metal.  This included getting the doors gapped, closing correctly, repairing rust, and fitting all other body panels.  This Dodge truck will feature a beautiful maroon pearl paint job, a classic interior with modern amenities, as well as many other high end details.  Please browse the photos and keep checking back and we make progress on this build.

  • Wes and Nicole's K5 Blazer

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Wes and Nicole took their 2wd K5 Blazer on Power Tour 2018.  This was their first Power Tour trip together and they had a blast!  They knew right away that they wanted to go again in 2019 and would want to take the Blazer.  After the trip they realized that the small black that was in the Blazer used about 5 quarts of oil on that trip.  That, along with a couple other issues, would have to be addressed before they took it out on a long trip again.  During the winter they found a wrecked 2015 Camaro SS to use as a drivetrain donor.  The Camaro was an automatic transmission, L99 car and would be perfect for their Power Tour cruiser!  Wes, Nicole, and their young daughter worked together as a family to pull the engine and transmission along with any other useful parts.  Wes and I spent a

  • Capone

    Level 7 Motorsports Project
    Capone is a 1970 C10 and is owned by Shane Garrison.  This truck came to us as a father, son, grandson project that needed a little help to get finished.  The truck is on a No Limit Pro-Tech low rail chassis with 3 piece sway bars front and rear, Flaming river road course rack and pinion, and aluminum fuel tank.  For a power plant it has a Wegnes built LS3.  This particular LS3 has a Whipple supercharger and makes just over 1000hp on the engine dyne.  Behind that monster is a Bowler Performance Level 2 T56 Magnum transmission and a carbon fiber driveshaft.  On the outside of the truck we did a reproduction bed floor but widened the wheel openings, welded in a flat for the fuel fill, then bedlined the top and bottom of that floor.  Inside the bed we built an aluminum mount for the II Much vent

  • 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

  • "Fern" 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

    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
