We look back on the couple of weeks leading up to the Cresta's first ever 8 second pass including fire proofing & running it on the dyno. We then take it to the docks where it will be shipped off to the USA. There's high hopes for the Cresta & it's new setup this year.

Benny's Custom Works brings you everything automotive!
Weekly Episodes right here on Youtube, as well as the shop with new & used performance parts for most Japanese makes and models.

Benny makes this stuff look like a walk in the park. Please consider the risk factors and talk to a qualified mechanic, as well as a psychologist, if you’re thinking of attempting anything you’ve seen on the show.
Take into consideration your safety, the safety of others, as well as your vehicle’s best interests- warranty, etc.
Unless you’re trained & qualified to do so, we don’t recommend modifying your vehicle in any way. Stickers don’t add HP unless installed correctly.


Last drag week really doesn't feel like that long ago. Lets hope the Cresta makes it there in once piece.

Quick Tip. Wet the heat wrap when putting on the exhaust. Won’t get as much fibres on your hands/gloves and it shrinks when it dries for a tighter neater fit πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

For the Americans watching it’s a MainLine Dyno so you’ll need to add 20% to the total as U.S dyno’s read higher.

You should paint the AN caps some neon color so you can glance and see if anything is not reconnected.

It always amazes me just how much more work and power goes into that 1 second drop in 1/4 mile time. Several hundred horsepower, all that build work and time to go from 9 to 8. Enjoy the 1000hp Cresta mate, love ya work!

The Cresta has been around so long you can see the surface rust on the parachute lever.

Still my favorite car on YouTube.

Looking forward to following you through the next drag week - hope the prep and everything else in the meantime goes well! There is always something to cause drama before a big event!

An interesting comparison would be to put the Crest on Cleetus' dyno and see if Leroy really is making 1200hp.
