Lutz Built Twin Turbo HEMI Ram 1500

January 12th, 2023

As a tribute to his deceased son, NHRA Top Fuel Champion Drag Racer Clay Millican presents this Ram 1500 pickup known affectionately as “Dentley”. This video picks up as Clay explains the details of this build and a bit about his young son.

Under the hood is a 6.1-liter HEMI engine with a pair of 62-millimeter Precision turbochargers. Assembled by master fabricator Jeff Lutz (Street Outlaws), Dentley is equipped with a state-of-the-art intercooler setup and all the best parts imaginable. The transmission is a TCI TH400 automatic with a trans brake and a gear bender. Out back is a Quarter Max four link setup wrapped around a Moser (Ford) 9-inch rear end with 4.10:1 final drive gears. Maximum output (on racing fuel) is projected to be 1,000 to 1,200whp.

As you might expect from a top tier drag racer, the wheels are Weld Delta-1. These are considered the lightest and strongest wheels in racing. They are wrapped in Mickey Thompson rubber.

The interior has been left basically stock with the exception of a full roll cage, safety harnesses and four racing seats. That’s right – this is a crew cab.

Designed to operate on street or strip, Dentley has a full exhaust system, air conditioning and power windows.

We can’t wait to see this truck take on Drag Week.
