#IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: Instant Boost

Just because we’ve got ‘speed’ in our name, doesn’t mean we’re okay with how incredibly fast this year seems to be disappearing. It might be April already, but on the upside that means it’s time to announce our next monthly theme. As you might’ve guessed by the above images, it’s all about forced induction of the supercharged variety, and we’re on the look-out for some of your BLOWN rides to be featured in it!

We all know that supercharging is a quick and easy solution to increasing power, with one of its biggest advantages being zero lag, but we’re also interested to know what kind of supercharged rides you, our readers, are building and driving.

Perhaps you’ve built a blown big-block V8, lurking within a purpose-built drag car, a radical hot rod creation or even a low-and-not-so-slow Sunday cruiser. Or perhaps you’ve added boost to something new-school, like our Cosworth-supercharged Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S. Whether it’s a blown American muscle car, a boosted well-styled street car or a fun-sized supercharged canyon carver, we want to see it!

If you want to take part in this theme, we’d love to hear from you. Here’s what to do:

  • E-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com with the exact subject line of  ‘The Supercharged Theme’.
  • For this theme, we want you to select 3-6 high resolution images to send to us. Please include a range of different shots if possible. They don’t have to be professional pictures, although higher quality images will be more likely considered for publication.
  • Tell us your name, location and some information about your build or project.
  • Attach the images directly to the email, ensuring your images are a minimum of 1920PX on the longest side. Ideally they should be RESIZED to 1920 x 1280PX.
  • Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
  • If you haven’t taken the images yourself, we’ll need to know the name of the photographer (please make sure you have their permission to use the images) to credit them accordingly.
  • Closing date for submissions is April 16th 2015.

As usual, we’re looking forward to seeing what pops up in our inbox…

I don't own a supercharged car however have been in a few, though the one that stood out was a jaguar s type r. Hammer in silk gloves.

This current #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER format is very similar to the old #FEATURETHIS
http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/03/wanted-your-american-iron/

http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/03/featurethis-born-in-the-usa/

Where, just like #featurethis it is a place for car owners and car builders out there to submit photos of their rides.

I like the old #Iamthespeedhunter format better because it's geared more towards Photographer submissions. Photographers who are out there actually hunting for speed...

http://www.speedhunters.com/2012/12/iamthespeedhunter-the-best-is-yet-to-come/


Why even change the format when there's already #featurethis for this type of stuff?

mnchk1987 I hope it has nitrous too.

5

Hope to see some blown 5.0 engines as i'm considering a sc for the miata :)

6

@Ian G That's what I thought as well.

7

does a VW 1.4 TSI super and turbocharged engine count?

8

corbintjansen It does! This is Bradley Gray's INSANE multi award winning Camaro SS, utterly bonkers...

@Ian G We actually phased the photography programme out about a year ago now. It was great fun (and naturally we had a few complaints when it ended!) but our issue with it was that it was becoming a bit elitist in the way that only people with photography skills could participate. We wanted the programme to be more about the Speedhunting community as a whole, and since then it has evolved into these Readers' Rides stories - very much like our old 'Feature This' stories, but with a lot more detail. Thanks for your feedback though - we can see there are definitely quite a few people still interested in having somewhere to submit automotive photography and this is something we are going to address this year. :)

Well, I'm really looking forward to being 'blown' away this month.  Haha.  See what I did there guys? .... guys? ....

11

@SkreaminChikin I too feel super about this next month, charged up if you will.

12

@Frozenstar still waiting for someone to seriously boost that engine. Should be good to at least 400 bhp, needing different injection obv

13

TurboHippie corbintjansen but iirc not all of that stuff was actually connected and working as intended, wasn't it? On that pic alone the piping from the top of the intake "horn" to the turbo inlets seems fishy

14

@Whoshot You got us!

Mate, who is in Australia, the <a
href="http://www.archeagegoldmall.com">Archeage Gold</a>
servers are in Russia and EU. Please tell me other game with "great
netcode" wich allow you to play normal with 400 ping?This reminds me of
the time when our community had BF servers. So many times there was
people from US who joined there, and the servers was located in
Stuttgart. So they play round or two on EU server (they have filters and
know...or <a href="http://www.archeagegoldmall.com">Cheap
Archeage Gold</a> dont know may be...where they join) and start to
moan: This <a href="http://www.archeagegoldmall.com">Buy Archeage
Gold</a> server is laggy! And so on...
