Transformation – Junk S10 Blazer to 9-Second Killer

September 3rd, 2019

Featured in this video is a 1999 GMC Jimmy. It is powered by a .030 over (cylinder bore) 6.0-liter V8 engine with a Li’l John Motorsports Stage 1 twin turbo camshaft.

It has an S485 Borg Warner turbocharger and a TH400 automatic transmission. It is still running the stock ECU, but it has been professionally tuned. It runs on E85 fuel and I am digging the American flag on the bumper.

Out back is an 8.8-inch Ford rear end with 3.55:1 final drive gears. It is a 4,300-pound street car with a full interior, power windows, power door locks and a factory stereo. It even retains the remote start feature. Best pass to date is a 9.59 @ 142 mph. Output is dyno certified at 1,049whp.

Car owner, Craig has had the Jimmy for nine-years. He bought it for $700 (with a rod hanging out of the block) and he has built it into the bruiser that you see today. Craig does most of the work himself (with the help of some good friends) just because he enjoys the action. Keep on truckin’ Craig.
