SEMA 2015: 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner by HPI Customs

1969-roadrunner-hpi-customs-rearHPI Customs is a full service hot rod shop in Beausejour, Manitoba, a small town on the outskirts of Winnipeg. We’ve featured their work on the site before, with a full write-up on their 1966 Chrysler Imperial that had a supercharged V10 from a Dodge Viper under the hood!

The guys from HPI were back at SEMA 2015 with another new project, also a Mopar. This time, they had a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner with a Gen3 6.1L HEMI crate engine under the hood. But just to push the envelope even further, it also has a rear-mounted twin-turbo setup from STS!

Power is transferred to the wheels by way of a T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission from American Powertrain, with dual clutches and a lightened flywheel.

Of course, big power doesn’t mean much if you cannot handle it. The car’s ride has been upgraded with a Control Freaks suspension and Wilwood Dynapro disc brakes. The rear wheel wells have been mini-tubbed to accommodate the custom Budnik wheels, which are 18″x9″ up front and 19″x12″ in the rear.

The interior features a custom, all-metal dash and center console, one-off gauges from SpeedHut, and a killer stereo from M-Line Audio Systems. We look forward to seeing more great work from Tyler Scarfe and the guys at HPI Customs in the future!
