2 AUSSIES TURN A BORING JDM SEDAN INTO A POTENTIAL DEMON SLAYER!
If you arent watching the Mighty Car Mods Channel on YouTube what the hell have you been doing? Moog and Marty are 2 Australian dudes who make some pretty awesome machines with a little help from their friends. They have made wicked fast wagons, a badass Honda Powered Mini and more. Their latest creation was built with one thing in mind, slaying the drag strip in a car completely incapable of slaying a strip mall parking lot. AKA the ultimate sleeper.
The car in question started life as a very boring Toyota Cresta in Japan. The boys shipped it over to Austraila and set about gutting it. The entire rear end was rebuilt and the stock Toyota engine was ditched in favor of a more powerful straight six. I know what you're thinking here, there is one extremely obvious choice if you're after huge power, the 2JZGTE. In this case, the straight 6 goodness comes from Ford. Specifically the Australian Ford Falcon.
The build is a much faster pace than most of MCM's videos. Not nearly as in-depth as they usually go but is a great start to your MCM experience. In the end, they get a 9-second car that with some tuning will be scaring the pants off Demon owners. Assuming Australia is getting the Demon, which I'm not sure they are. In any rate for a few guys in a garage to build a sub 10-second car is extraordinary. If you're into cars which I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you are, you need to watch this video, it is 35+ minutes of awesome!
For the record, they call it the Transformers Special for reasons I don't quite understand. My guess is the Transformer people threw a bag of money at MCM and told them to go make something awesome.
