Square Body Chevy C10 4WD on 44s with Procharged Big Block – Hub Dyno

November 4th, 2021

Going down a bit of a different path today as we take a look at a mud truck on steroids. I can’t imagine a gearhead that doesn’t enjoy an off-road adventure now and again. What better way to navigate that out-of-the-way hunting, camping or fishing destination than in a jacked-up square body with some 44-inch tires, 1127WHP and 1039 lb.-ft. of torque at the ready?

Before Steve spins it up on the hub dyno, let’s see what makes this high-powered mud bogger tick.

Under the hood is an all-aluminum Steve Morris built 540 cubic-inch (Chevy platform) Dart Pro 1 Racing engine with an Edelbrock intake manifold and Holley fuel injection setup. Forced air induction duties are handled via a ProCharger F1-R belt-driven blower. A massive intercooler keeps intake air temp low for more efficient operation. This truck is running pump gas (93 octane) and making 12 psi of boost.

This beast of a truck looks like an old hunting buggy, but it runs smooth and strong. What I wouldn’t give to get this thing in the deer woods on a rainy day.
