After a stellar 2013, we’re well underway with the 25.3 2014 re-build of Project BlownZ, and a new year means a fresh new slate of tech updates to the quickest and fastest project car ever.
When we built the engine for Project BlownZ, we realized that we had a choice – stick with the factory-style coil-on-plug ignition, or “go backwards” and make use of a distributor. We discuss both inside.
Want to keep track of all that’s going on with our NMCA and PSCA 275 Drag Radial 4th Gen Camaro build, from the ProCharged LSX down to the Mickey Thompson tires? It’s all right here!
Our very own Project BlownZ bettered the NMCA WEST 275 Drag Radial ET record on its way to winning it’s first-ever race at the World Street Finals in Bakersfield on Sunday.

Our Drag Radial Camaro is seeing another round of changes and upgrades, and to keep it all together we’ve enlisted the help of Race Part Solutions. Check it out!
Along with a host of other off season changes, Project BlownZ received a new peice from the folks at Meziere Enterprises — a Billet flexplate — and today we’re going to highlight the flexplate and our experiences with its installation into the car.
Designed specifically to clear tall valve gear like Jesel’s shaft-mount rocker arms without the use of a spacer, these billet aluminum covers are available with rocker oilers (Part number VC-0081), or without (Part number VC-0081X) like ours.
Project BlownZ gets a power upgrade in the form of a brand-spankin’-new ProCharger F-1X supercharger. We spoke with ProCharger’s Sergio Schifman, who was happy to detail some of the performance advantages of this new piece. Testing and race results inside!
Those familiar with the popular saying, ‘Hard Work beats Talent, Every Time’ should relate to our tale of our infamous drag racing project car ‘BlownZ’. But our crew pounded away and we proved the slogan true, recording our first seven-second run in Pomona.
Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the design and advantages of Derale’s Hyper-Cool Remote transmission cooler unit and show you why it’s remote mounting and stacked plate design are perfect for our racing application. We’ll also give you a brief walk-through of the installation process.
If you’ve been following along with the recent updates on our Project BlownZ 275 Drag Radial Camaro, you know that we’ve already hit the track twice this spring. But before doing so, the car underwent a number of upgrades in an effort to crack into the seven’s and go some rounds this season.
In this tech feature, we’ll be taking a look at our Davis Technologies traction control system on our BlownZ Camaro, with an in-depth look at each of the components, how the system works, and the ways that teams are utilizing traction control to better their racing efforts.
Stepping up to a larger F-1X ProCharger prompted the Blown Z team to rethink the compression ratio strategy during the 388 LSX engine’s winter rebuild.

Testing (and Troubles) find BlownZ during our preparation for the 2013 NMCA West 275 Drag Radial championship chase. Follow along as we strive for the mid 7-second range at over 185 mph with a ProCharger F1X Upgrade.
In our latest installment of our ongoing Camaro project car, BlownZ, we remove our racing exhaust to get them ceramic coated. More precisely, Jet-Hot coated in the company’s Extreme 2500 Series – exactly what we need in our high-horsepower, high-boosted 388 cubic inch LSX mill.
Keeping a 1,200 horsepower supercharged LS engine properly fed is a big job – here’s how we stoke the fires on Project BlownZ with help from Aeromotive and Fragola.
You’ve no doubt heard of lithium ion batteries powering the latest green innovation from one auotmaker or another. These batteries though have a place in racing as well, offering lightweight and superior output when compared to their lead acid counterparts.
