Oklahoma Street Sleeper – 1000WHP Chevy Silverado 1500

January 23rd, 2021

The owner of this Oklahoma Street Sleeper shop truck will look familiar to most gearheads. He is Monza from the Street Outlaws cable television show. I know that he drives a Camaro on the show (not a Monza). It’s complicated. This short video features Monza’s shop truck; a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD Shortbed. This truck looks and sounds like a stock shop truck (with exhaust mods) but runs like a race car. Let’s zoom in for a closer look.

Monza raises the hood to reveal a 6.0-liter V8 engine with a 125hp shot of nitrous and a pair of 62-millimeter ON3 turbochargers. The engine has an Edelbrock intake and it has been treated to a camshaft upgrade. Other than that, the engine is basically stock. Fortunately, stock for the Chevy 6.0 is heavy-duty with 4-bolt maincaps. The transmission is a Rossler 4L80E with a trans brake and the rear end is a Ford 9-inch from Quick Performance. It has dual Walbro 450 fuel pumps, 1320 wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson rubber and Turbosmart blow-off valves and wastegates.

All-in-all, this is a clean and fast little truck that you might not even see coming – until it blows your doors off on the way to victory.
