Default July Truck of the Month Winner!

Congratulations JoeyG!!

Quote:
I bought this truck 2 years ago with the intent of making a drag racer and street cruiser.
Comfort and amenities are just as important as power, so AC and good seats were mandatory
I bought a used 2001 GMC 1500 2wd for $3400 with 173k on the odometer
I dropped the truck with a 2”/4” McGauphy kit and used relocated QA1 shocks. Also installed at the time were a Bosch 044 external fuel pump and a 22 gallon fuel cell in the bed from my 70Chevy race truck.
I then found a Corporate GM 14 Bolt rear end with 3.42 gears out of a 90 light duty ¾ ton truck for $150. I stripped the 14bolt down and welded on all the necessary brackets, as well as installing a junkyard takeout 4l80e with a Yank SC300 stall converter. I put 150 miles and 12 nitrous bottles through the stock 170k mile motor and new trans/rear end combo before starting on my turbo kit install. Nitrous kit is a Nitrous Outlet Brand X dry kit jetted for 50/75Hp.
I bought a take out 04 Tahoe 5.3 motor with 40k miles on it some time ago to go into my 70Chevy swb. However after swapping In a very used 234/228 SLP camshaft, LS9 head gaskets, and ARP heads studs the motor was swapped into the truck. I also installed an Edelbrock Pro-Flo intake and matching 92mm throttle body. The turbo kit is a KBRacing (Kyle Brown) Precision 88mm T4 turbo kit with Extreme Turbo Systems 3” in/out intercooler. The turbo manifold and 2 piece 4” downpipe were nitroplated Black. The crossover and ac lines were thermal wrapped. I made my own cold piping and using a JGS 60MM wastegate and Tial 60mm BOV the basic turbo system was done. The fuel system consists of an Aeromotive A1000 pump with pre/post filters; 8AN feed line to Edelbrock fuel rails, and a Aeromotive A1000 FPR with 6AN return line.
The newest transmission is a rebuilt 4L80e with a Jakes Performance Pro transbrake valve body, Circle-D 2b/c 320RPM converter and the before mentioned 14 bolt with 3.42 gears. The QA1’s are still used along with a custom Cal-trac style bar system.
Interior consists of a Carma-Performance 8 point rollcage and lexan rear window. Seats are out of a 2009 Tahoe and driver seat is full power. Prologger Wideband and Boost controller is being used in a modified 2003 truck console. A B&M Quicksilver shifter is installed with button for transbrake in the console also. Interior switches also control the modified LS1 Camaro cooling fans, Biondo Line lock, Nitrous activation, and toggle between low boost (9lbs) and high boost (19lbs). The only gauges visible in the interior are the Prologger console display and the column mounted multifunction gauge. The rollcage was paint matched with Khaki colored enamel paint. Exterior cage was painted with VHT Chassis Black.
Exterior the only Changes are 20”GM accessory wheels with 275/45/20 tires, an ADM 2” cowl hood, and the rear down bars for the rollcage. For the race track Colorado spare wheel s with M&H racemaster 28 x5.5x17 tires and MB Racing 16x8 wheels with Mickey Thompson 28x12.5x16 Slicks are used.
I’ve done all the work on this vehicle myself except for the rollcage, transmission build, and turbo manifold/downpipe construction.

Thank you for the kind words, as its been a year and 1/2 progress and still going. Buford, thanks for the write up and the good work you put into car/truck of the month.

Forgot to add Bosch 80lb/hr injectors at 43psi, my base pressure is 58psi though with EFILIve cos 5 CLSD operating system

Went to the track twice at Osborn. 1st outing was on 5lbs and not worth a damn. 2nd outing it went 7.42@99.7 with a 2.2 60' on 11lbs peak boost. Couldn't build more than 1lb of boost of the foot brake and old converter/cam. New trans with brake and new camshaft (212/212 0.563 111) should be much more efficient.

My vote has merit here! While it may not mean anything else where. Love this build, love COTM.

Thanks for posting.

Doesn't a 111 cam have a bit much overlap for boosted motors or am I just behind the times? I was always thinking a 114+ was best. I had a custom grind turbo cam in my old 5.3L that was a 115, but it had a lot more lift/duration than yours.

The small duration and lift is more for the low end torque. This same cam is in a rcsb 4wd truck that went 9.70's @140+ on 20lbs of boost. I'll sacrifice a little bleedoff in cylinder pressure for a compromise through the power band.

Overlap is not determined by just LSA of the cam.

Add the intake and exhaust adv durations
Divide the results by 4
Subtract the LSA
Multiply the results by 2

212 + 212 = 424
424/4 = 106
106 - 111 = -5
-5 x 2 = -10

-10 overlap total

That is a really MILD cam because of the low intake and duration advances. Once you start getting into the + (plus) duration is when the car gets rowdy.

Overlap (the higher the number, the more overlap) is good for top end power but bleeds off boost.
