Turbo Chevy Silverado vs. Modified Dodge Viper – Street Hits

February 16th, 2021

This video has it all – fast cars and a fast pickup truck. Featured in this short clip is a contest (roll race) between a Chevrolet Silverado pickup and a 2013 Dodge Viper GTX. Sure, in stock trim the Viper would handily annihilate the Silverado (and any other pickup) but neither of these chariots remain in factory condition. Have a closer look.

Obviously, this Chevrolet Silverado has been radically modified for the purpose of competitive driving. It more closely resembles a NASCAR Truck Series entry than a work truck. Low and stealthy, this truck looks menacing in basic black. The visible roll cage and huge exhaust outlets are clues to the potential of this cowboy Cadillac. Unfortunately, by the time you see them – it’s too late. Under the hood is a built 5.3-liter engine with a massive 88-millimeter turbo (and all that it entails). This truck sounds amazing and runs like a scalded dog.

What can I say about the mighty Viper? Even in factory trim, the Viper is a formidable beast – and this one ain’t stock by a lot. The 8.4-liter V10 has been replaced with a 9.0-liter Prefix Performance stroker motor. It is naturally aspirated with high performance cylinder heads and a thumpstick (performance camshaft). This 2013 Dodge Viper GTS is capable of turning 700whp on 93-octane pump gas.

Can the turbo truck tame the wicked Viper or will the snake strangle its prey? Check out the video and find out.
