Taking it to the Streets – Turbocharged Spool Bus

September 8th, 2015


Taking it to the Streets - Turbocharged Spool BusIs it the Spool Bus or short bus? This thing has a school bus safety stop sign hanging from the driver’s door – to each his own, as “they” say. They also say, “It ain’t how you look, it’s what you got under the hood.” Under the hood of this brightly colored S10 Blazer is a fully built 5.7-liter LT1 (bored .030 over to 355-cubic-inches), high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold, exhaust headers, and a massive 80mm turbocharger. It’s all bolted to a 4L80E transmission (from 3/4-ton truck). The SUV is estimated at 700hp.

This mean fire-breathing machine takes on a pretty bad turbocharged Civic, a C7 Z06 ‘Vette, a C6 and a C5. You can’t win ‘em all, but you can look for the Spool Bus to take more than his fair share of street trophies (cash!).
