firing up

Having friends in the hobby is pretty much what makes this whole car thing fun. Sure, cruising your hot rod or muscle car is great for a while, but it gets a little old when you don’t have your pals around to share the drive with. In golf terms, it would be like getting a hole-in-one with no one else there to witness the ball go in the cup. It would still be pretty cool, but not nearly as much as having three of your buds there to share the moment. Besides, without a witness, my friends wouldn’t believe my hole-in-one story anyway. So, getting back to our car hobby; this past August I hung out with thousands of hot rodders and muscle car enthusiasts at the 50th Annual NSRA Street…

Comp Star’s Camaro Within NHRA drag racing, the last name Aragona is most commonly associated with Competition Eliminator. The father-and-son team of Frank and Frank Jr., (based out of New Jersey) has amassed a serious career record, including topping double-digit NHRA national event wins and claiming two NHRA world championship titles (2007 and 2018). Since 2017, the team has also been dabbling within NHRA Stock Eliminator after they acquired a ’69 Camaro. The Camaro received updates to the engine and transmission and became highly competitive in A/SA trim. It features a 396ci big-block (Martino Race Engines) with all of the best parts available, including Manley connecting rods and valvesprings, Gibtec pistons, Bullet Cams camshaft, Jesel rockers, and Callies crankshaft. Sepanek Transmissions maintains the Scott McClay Engineering GM Metric 200, which employs…

the bucket list

There’s something unique about this hobby that can’t be touched. It’s more than a hobby. Through thick and thin we always seem to stick together. Sure, the idea may seem trivial, but it’s stories like Terry Schwartz’s that make up the fabric of what car culture is. The saying, “Be in love with your life, every minute of it,” has been associated to Jack Kerouac. Terry lives by that credo. In the chaos of our lives, it’s easy to forget how finite our time is. Yes, mortality is a price we all pay, but who dare asks when that time is up? Unfortunately for some, they are told. Terry knows he’s blessed with every new day. In fact, every day for Terry is an absolute miracle since his doctor gave him three…

chevrolet performance’s new lsx-sc cylinder head

Apparently, there is no ceiling when it comes LS performance. Just when it seems an insurmountable threshold of horsepower, speed, or low e.t. has been achieved, the next racer is able to shove another few pounds of boost through a rev-happy, deep-breathing LS/LSX-based engine and move the needle that much further. As engine builders and racers continue to explore the figurative boundaries of the LS engine family’s capability, they’ve encountered the literal barriers of components pushed beyond their original design parameters. It’s that age-old racing dichotomy at work: You’ll never find the limit if you don’t push beyond it. Over the years, Chevrolet Performance has revised the stout LSX cylinder block to offer the greater strength required to support high-boost racing engine applications, and now the engineers have turned their attention to…

As far as front accessory drive systems for LS engines go, there are plenty of aftermarket systems to choose from to fit your needs, and for good reason; the stock system is not super attractive and it’s a bit bulky. With that said, it will work fine for those who plan to keep their engine stock in the horsepower and looks department, but we here at Chevy High Performance aren’t much for leaving anything stock. We prefer our engines upgraded to perform way better than stock and have them look good doing it. We hit up the folks at Eddie Motorsports for an accessory drive system for our 440hp 5.3L LS. Now, that’s not a large number in today’s world of big-horsepower rides, but the car we’ll be dropping this engine…
