Tuned 2011 Chevrolet Silverado vs Blown 1970 Ford F100 – Street Hits

October 28th, 2020

Who doesn’t love some fast pickup trucks? I mean how can anyone not appreciate a vehicle capable of hauling a few engine blocks in the afternoon and racing at night? The final question is: What’s better than one fast pickup? Two fast pickups that want to see which one is best. Throw in a bit of Chevy versus Ford rivalry and you have enough to make a video. Take a look.

The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado is a modern day fuel injected cowboy Cadillac with an overhead cam 5.3-liter V8. The truck featured in this video has been modified with a set of longtube exhaust headers, a performance intake manifold and it has been tuned for performance. It is running E85 fuel.

The classic 1970 Ford F100 is equipped with a carbureted 5.0-liter engine that has been built with upgraded internals and fitted with a supercharger. The F100 also has exhaust headers and is running E85 fuel.

The initial hit of the video is a 60 mph affair on a two-lane blacktop (somewhere south of the U.S. border).

As the two trucks pull even and the signal is given, the F100 lurches forward and takes the immediate advantage. Believe it or not, the vintage Ford has a distinct weight advantage, and it shows when the F100 delivers a whipping in the first hit.

The second (and final) hit is a 30 mph contest. Again, the two competitors pull even, and the signal is given. This time the Ford breaks traction and nearly spins completely off the blacktop. Whoa! That was a close one.

The two trucks realign with the Chevy in low gear and the Ford in second gear. The Silverado gets the early jump, but the supercharged Ford drives around for the win.
