Chevy S10 With Turbo Junkyard LS Drag Races Nissan GT-R, It's Not Even Close
Enthusiasts are all too familiar with this platform thanks to the GMC Sycloneperformance version introduced a decade later, which used a turbocharged V6 to give the C4 Corvette a run for its money. And while the Chevy S10 never received an equivalent model, builds as this one will gladly make up for that.
The owner of the truck, whom you can see in the video below (lens tip to Drag Racing and Car Stuff), started with an inexpensive 1987 Chevrolet S10 body.
And the first move was to fill the engine compartment with a 5.3-liter LS he got from a junkyard for just $300. Next up, the V8 was gifted with a 92mm turbo supplied by VS Racing.
The aficionado doesn't mention the output of his toy. However, forced induction, along with the scale-friendly nature of the truck, mean it can deliver impressive 1/4-mile times even in poor weather conditions. That was the case during last weekend's Street Car Takeoverevent in Michigan—the truck battled multiple opponents, warming up by taking on a modded Dodge Neon SRT-4, although the latter appeared to experience technical issues.
The Chevrolet S10 also duked it out with a Nissan GT-R, as you'll notice at the 2:45 timestamp. And while Godzilla probably didn't reach its maximum potential (we could expect a low-11s run from the R35), that still wouldn't have prevented the truck from dominating it.
The budget beast also duked it out with a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcatin the 1/8-mile, with the driver of the three-row SUVappearing up to the task.
Five Second, Turbo V8 Swapped Chevy S10 at Hennessey Performance
Although making fast cars faster is the motto around Hennessey Performance, it doesn't mean their techs will shy away from making something like a little pickup run four-second eighth-mile times. This square-body S10 was parked in the sea of Raptors, Navigators, and Demons outside of the shop and was instantly eye catching. With the front clip off of the truck and the epic blow-through, turbo V8 glistening in the sun, this truck looked ready to take on a field of no-prep cars.
We caught up with owner Trey Orsak, who purchased the truck four years ago. The truck originally had a nitrous big-block that sent it through the lights in the five-teens at around 140 mph. Trey was looking to try some different suspension tuning. "I wanted to play the leaf spring game," he said. Once he dug into it, the build snowballed, and the only things that were left were the cage, cab, one of the bedsides, and the seat.
As it sits, the engine made 1,400 horsepower at the tires before it ran out of fuel pump. Now with an Enderle 19.5 gallon-per-minute mechanical fuel pump, 1,800hp is a possibility. That figure comes from a monstrous 101mm Precision Turbo strapped to a blow-through APD carburetor, Dart engine block with All Pro heads backed by a Powerglide and PTC converter. "Before, it [blow through carburetors] was witchcraft," said Trey. Though not savvy with computer tuning, he can make a carburetor do what needs doing. The truck has yet to make a pass at the drag strip, but the goal in the eighth-mile is e.t. 's in the 4.40-range and 160mph. We hope to see what goes down with this red rocket soon and stay tuned for more stories from our visit to Hennessey Performance.

7s Stick Shift Chevy S10 Wipes the Floor With Turbo Mustang, Camaro Shows It's Not Enough
Replaced by the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, the series may be gone, but it’s certainly not forgotten. Especially Nick of Cole-Mann Customs, the owner and driver of the Native Nightmare, clearly remembers the Chevy S10. Perhaps it’s because of the monster he created, the current holder of the fastest LS stick shift record, as well as the fastest manual transmission pickup truck.
And, although he doesn’t run close to his all-time best of 7.28s at 196 mph (315 kph), both man and machine put that into the proper perspective with a trio of qualification runs performed for the H-Pattern Elite Stick Shift Class. The first battle is against the newly reborn Red Demon V2 that still looks to be made out of scrapyard parts, and there’s no Cinderella story here because the S10 establishes domination with a 7.65 result.
Next up (at the two-minute mark) comes a couple of battles against a 2014 Ford Mustang packing a turbocharged mill. The 1992 Chevy S10 is meanwhile equipped with a 402ci (6.55-liter) Dart LS block that has a pair of Borg-Warner Bullseye 76mm turbos strapped to it. So, one can imagine the encounteris of the “not even close” variety. Although, after the first attempt (7.71s vs. 9.23s), the Blue Oval seriously ups its game and also enters the seven-second territory. But, ultimately, it’s really not enough to secure a win.
Interestingly, after dropping to 7.57s (against the Mustang’s7.75s run) during the previous encounter, the Chevy S10 and its driver are unable to keep up the pace with a turbo Chevy Camaro. So, the last battle from the 5:26 mark proves “fatal” for the S10 truck... if only by just 0.1 seconds!
Listen To A 1,000 HP Chevy S10 Twin Turbo LS Swap Hit The Dyno
By Michael Van Runkle
The potent mill manages to pump out 922 hp at the rear wheels, which translates to well over 1,000 hp at the crank!
The world of tuning and modding has exploded in recent years, thanks to all the backyard builders who can go online to find all the parts and knowledge they need to throw together some seriously impressive cars and trucks. But there's still nothing like a good-old drag strip racer built up by a neighborhood shop, as evidenced by a recent video posted to YouTube by Steve Morris Engines featuring a radical Chevrolet S10 pickup truck with a ridiculous engine swap hitting the dynamometer to put out some equally absurd power figures. And the best part might just be the soundtrack as the truck revs to the limit.
Not Your Mama's Pickup
Maybe the best part about this S10 is the fact that it doesn't look all too modified from the exterior. Sure, closer inspection reveals an exhaust tip ahead of the front wheels and a roll cage but otherwise, it wouldn't stand out in traffic. Not until it got to 6,000 RPM, anyway, since this beast is running a 6.0-liter LS V8 swap with a pair of 66mm turbochargers bolted on. Compare that to the factory powerplant, which maxed out with the famous GMC Syclone, which employed a turbocharged V6 producing what used to be an impressive 280 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.

The roar of this setup clearly reveals that something special is going on under the hood—wait, there's no hood because the intake manifold has a bump so big the factory unit wouldn't close anyway. But that massive powerplant manages to pump out 922 horsepower at the rear wheels, which given typically driveline losses equates to well over 1,000 horses at the crank. All that remains is to see what this puppy can do at the strip. Hopefully, that's the next video in line.
