The 1000hp Duramax-Swapped Camaro is BACK. And it Drives!! // Knuckle Busters 2 Ep.13
Hoonigan Project Cars
It’s been a long lockdown, but we’ve finally been able to get back to our Coalmaro project to get this thing ready for its attempt at 200 mph in the standing mile. Dan and Jose have some catching up to do, but with axles the size of a 747 cockpit and some final buttoning up in the engine bay, it’s ready for some rips in our yard.

Special Thanks to Edelbrock for making this project happen

    What i love about turbodiesel is THAT SPOOL. I can't get enough of that, it is very satisfying

      @Alex Rib well you can go on Gail bakes Channel Banks Performance or whatever it's called and watch his videos on him watching them tune that Camaro. Banks himself said that that car could hold at least another 2 to 3 hundred horsepower if they put it in a room with proper ventilation and if the engine had a bigger intercoller. So the engine itself is tune for atmosphere that it would never be in with an intercooler that is way too small.

    "After an absolute ass-blasting by Gale Banks we learned literally nothing and it still sucks!" Are we going to just forget a bunch of apes poorly set this thing up to make no power and belch smoke like some hot-boy bullshit? Cmon dude. Banks literally offered to walk you through this.

  • Pman

    Why do the axles have no rubber boots? My mr2 has a rubber boot.

  • TurboDieselDan

    If Banks was collabing he'd tell them to start over. No way is he going to sign off and attach his name to this accident waiting to happen. Hoonigan = Busch League

    I'm having a hard time hearing where he got the axles? Is it motion performance or OG performance or what? I have a full floater with grand national ends and would love to get a set of those axles

      Re the Gale Banks thing, I don't think people ("commenters") were getting at Hoonigan. People were getting at the tuners they used.

    Why have y'all had this re tuned yet? Especially when Banks has already told you how bad your current tune is? All that coal rollin may look cool, but that's a lot of wasted power

    This is also my first week back working in the shop, can't imagine how good it must feel to get back in this beast and rip it. You could always try to make a little more power though... I've seen frat boys with more coal.
