evil chevy s-10

Yo wus up. I was driving home from work the other day and trying to burn out my new Cherry Bomb glasspack and makin sum noise. A little chevy s-10 pulled up next to me and said he wanted to race. I told him I was pretty much stock, and he said he was to and wanted to race anyway. HE KICKED MY BUTT!!!!! He has a no muffler setup and has a I4.?. He burned out a good 50 ft. and I never caught up with him until the next red...must..beat..him..any ideas for hp? I have 2 fulltime jobs so money isnt a prob

I'm not sure what it is that you are saying? What do you mean he has a 14? A chevy s10 truck with a 4 cyl is toast to any of our trucks. A Chevy S10 with the 4.3 V6 is a bit more of a problem. They are pretty much running the same 1/4 miile as us.

Um if he has a I4 and beat you I can almost guarantee he is running turbo or NOS, or both

I am able to keep up with almost all stock pickups. as for light trucks the only ones that can beat me are the dodge dakota V8s...I wonder why?

I guess start with chip, intake, headers, full exhgaust high flow cats, aluminum radiator and electric fans, REAR GEARS and better tires. perhaps some lightweight rims and good race tires. A slight drop and some suspension tuning, oh ladder bars, supercharger, NOS, twin turbos, rebuild teh bottom end of course for the last 3, port/polish heads. install manual steering and disconnect the A/C. Get some performance intake from Kenny Brown (the guy with the 600 hp 3.8 mustang)

There is a LONG list of cra you can do for our trucks if you have money.

remove non essential equipment from truck (spare tire, passenger seat, jack, headlights, tailgate, swap drivers seat with recaro buckets. ditch the bulky dash, replace with a single piece of bent aluminnum for weight and appearance.
must I go on?

I disagree...Or maybe Im just a damn good driver....I have a supercab and walk all over any other v6 regular cab trucks ive been put up against. If it werent for my rev limiter, I would have killed the chevy i raced. 8.89 second 0-60 aint too shabby for a SCAB!!!

That's actually really good for an SCAB. BTW, I've raced a stock S10 at the track and he pulled a 16.6 on me. I think I actually ran kinda crappy that time...like a 17 or something. Anyways, if you drive it correctly and shift properly, you can beat them anyday.

My first truck was a 4.3 Chevy. I agree with you Shane...my old Chevy truck would KILL any of us off the line, but after that our Ford's put them to shame. Chevy = Low End Power :: Ford = High End Power
