Suzuki Mighty Boy with LS1 V8 power – Click above to watch the videos after the jump

The JDM kei-sized Suzuki Mighty Boy from the 1980s weighed about 1,100 pounds and typically packed no more than 30 horsepower. What happens, then, when the only extra weight you add to the mix are a pair of fat rear tires and a General Motors LS1 V8? A lot of smoky burnouts, that's for sure.

Beyond the jump are three videos of the Mighty Boy crop-dusting fans in the stands. They may not be the newest, but we've never seen them before, and hopefully you haven't either. The first clip is a minute long and every ounce of the Mighty Boy's massive rear tires is shredded clear off the wheels. The second clip is two minutes, and you can expect more burnouts with a bunch of donuts mixed in. The last clip is only 27 seconds long, but six tire-smoking burnouts in that time-frame look like they're taking place in a video game. We can almost smell the rubber from here. Hit the jump to watch for yourself.

      LS1: it fits in anything

      Seriously, SBCs are some of the best examples of American engineering:
      1) simple
      2) reliable
      3) cheap
      4) light
      5) compact
      6) huge aftermarket
      7) easy parts availability

      I read the title and instantly knew this would be an Aussie creation.

      God bless Australia!
