Super Street - - HOLE SHOT -

Spin­ning the rollers for a stag­ger­ing 668 hp and 629 lb-ft of torque, Diego Garibay’s Toy­ota 1.5JZ (1J head on a 2J in­line-six block) mo­ti­vated Mit­subishi Star­ion set the bar in­cred­i­bly high, and was for all in­tents and pur­poses un­chal­lenged in the power con­test. Ryan Cas­tro’s GM LSX V-8-pow­ered BMW M3 came in a re­mote sec­ond with a still im­pres­sive 447 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. Close be­hind Cas­tro was Lalo Pineda’s Honda K20/K24 Toy­ota MR2, which put down 441 hp and 379 lb-ft. Deme­sio Cas­taneda’s 2Jz-swapped Toy­ota Cres­sida rounded out the 400hp club, reg­is­ter­ing 413 ponies and 407 lb-ft. Then there was a siz­able break to the re­main­ing cars, which were all less than 300 hp. Daryk Ar­den in his LEA Ecotec Mazda MX-5 led that duo with 208 hp and 193 lb-ft of torque, fol­lowed by Loi Song of Sportcar Mo­tion’s K24 S2000, mak­ing 205 hp and 174 lb-ft. Evan Tran and his V-6 Mi­ata were un­able to make the dyno day. Ac­cord­ing to him, his car makes 276 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, but we could not in­de­pen­dently ver­ify this.
