2.000HP 1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

July 21st, 2017

This fantastic looking 1965 Chevy C10 is being purpose-built to rule the street racing scene in the hometown of a guy named Chris Red – something or other.

At the heart of this beast is a 400 cubic-inch, LS based, Dart Racing block. In order to make the LS durable enough to withstand this massive amount (2,187hp @ 6,900 RPM)) of horsepower, Steve Morris Engines has recently gone through the engine and they are currently in the process of tuning it (with owner, Chris R.) in their state-of-the-art dyno facility.

It has a specially ground hydraulic roller camshaft with a set of LS7 cylinder heads that have been tweaked (ported and polished) by Steve Morris.

Holley electronic fuel injection, a Holley intake manifold, and a Holley throttle body are being used for air/fuel delivery.

A pair of Borg Warner 475 six-blade turbochargers provide the forced air induction and Chris will be using a massive direct-frontal air (the radiator is mounted in the cab of the truck), air-to-air intercooler.

In this video, the engine is running C16 racing fuel. Chris can deduct around 500hp if he chooses to use pump gas.

The engine is setup on the dyno in much the same manner as it will rest in the truck.

We can’t wait to see this beast after the engine is installed and it can begin its onslaught of total street domination.
