Diesel S10 Posts 10-Second Quarter-MileI bet you thought that you’d seen everything there was to see on a drag strip, right? Well, take a gander at this turbocharged diesel Chevrolet S10 pickup. The guys down at firepunk transmissions built this truck to test abuse one of their bulletproof diesel transmissions; and test it they did at the Street Car Takeover Event in Indianapolis.

This mid-size pickup is equipped with a 5.9-liter Cummins (Dodge) diesel engine and it billows black smoke like a tar keel. It’s making about 750hp and an amazing 1,450-pound-feet of torque. This thing posts a best ET of 10-seconds and we look for some nines in the near future.
