Syclone AWD World record 8. 76/161 mph
This weekend we was at Kjula Raceway. It was a test and tune weekend.
Saturday was good weather, Sunday was gonna rain, so we only had one day to
tune. The track was ok, but not fully prepped and superglued, but it was
good enough for us, compared to the street :) We got 5 rounds, 4 of them
was 8´s Of course we are running E85.=)
FAST GMC SYCLONE vs SS CAMARO
11 second run in the Syclone. I was only running for times so I wasnt
paying much attention to my reaction times. Times were in the 11.4 to 11.5
time for the day. Looking for SY/TY custom fabricated parts.
Burning rubber with AWD syclone
Sweden rainway=( 2012. We went to a test and tune today. Of course it was
raining again, so no testing :( This is Sweden. But when we were travelling
back home the weather started to get better so we decided to test the car
on the street. Guess who has a big smile on his face? :) All I can say is
that this V6 monster running on E85, burned all 4 rubbers 450 feet. This is
135084 / 1991 GMC Syclone

All black, all business and packed with Professional Grade performance
hardware, this prim and polished pickup backs turbocharged V6 power with factory all-wheel drive
and a tuned sport suspension!
Feeling especially whimsical, and privy to leftover parts from its empire
of mass transportation appliances, GM set the automotive marketplace on its
ear with a curve ball known as 'the 1991 Syclone'. But, unfortunately, the
corporation's own bureaucracy killed the world-beating truck almost as fast
as it hit dealerships, limiting production to 2,995 units. This Syclone's
wet-looking coat of GM code 19 Black highlights original sheetmetal that's
both crisp and sharp. The truck's vertical panels center straight surfaces
in even gaps, showing no signs of damage or accident repairs. And, topped
by great looking, factory-correct trim, the finish on those panels is every
bit as glossy as it is deep.
Speaking of survivors, and GM's core strengths, if anyone ever creates an
ultimate engine survivors list the corporation's stalwart Vortec 4300 V6
will surely be at the top. Introduced in 1985, that rugged powerplant has
been a mainstay in most of the general's light truck offerings and, in
massively re-engineered EcoTec3 guise, continues as the company's
entry-level lump for the current Silverado and Sierra. For Syclone duty,
the LB4 4300 saw significant mechanical upgrades that included better
pistons, freer intake and Exhaust
manifolds, a Mitsubishi TD06-17C turbocharger, a Garrett water/air Intercooler and a 48mm twin-bore
throttle body that was borrowed from Chevrolet's 5.7 liter V8. All those
carefully calculated tweaks and improvements added up to a very impressive
280 horsepower and
350 lb./ft. of V8-slaying of torque. And the truck's strip-scorching times
would not only best GM's own Camaro and Corvette, but also
catapult it to the forefront of '90s performance!
Behind that raucous engine, a reliable 700R4 automatic makes the most of
four forward gears. That gearbox twists torque to a Borg Warner all-wheel
drive system, which sends 35% of its power to the front wheels. Speaking of
front wheels, this truck's 9-inch meats are pointed by factory power
steering. Speaking of power-assist, the truck's power-assisted brake system
is one of the first to be fully accompanied by standard anti-lock
technology. And power meets the pavement through beefy GM alloys, which
spin 245/50ZR16 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports around requisite red @¢2GMC@¢2
Inside this awesome street bruiser you'll find a correct Gray and Black
interior that's virtually spotless. Typical GMC fashion dictates more
comfort than sport, but then, that's what GM's premium truck brand has
increasingly gravitated toward. And naturally, that means this Syclone is
loaded with all the features you'd expect including power windows, power
locks, climate control, cruise control and a tilt steering wheel. In front
of that wheel, red-piped factory buckets are still firm to the touch.
Opposite those seats, factory-spec, Pontiac-sourced gauges inhabit a blocky
dash that's free of warps and cracks. And, below that dash, @¢2SYCLONE@¢2
branded floor mats frame a small console and simple factory shifter.
Sporting only 1,889 actual miles, this incredible Syclone is an incredible
bargain. And you can pretty much bank on the fact that the truck will grow
in value as it and its buyer base continues to mature. So, what are you

As performance emerged from its slumber in the late '80s and early '90s, it
took on many forms. Cheap gas meant that the legendary V-8 was but one
option of many; technology developed in darker times meant that computer
controls and turbocharging were out of
their infancy and well into their adolescence. Front-wheel-drive
performance was available, as was rear-wheel drive. It was inevitable that
all-wheel-drive performance would come around too.
One of the legends to emerge from that second wave of American performance
is the GMC Syclone. The GMC S-15-based Syclone pickup was a 1991-'92
proposition only, wearing sheetmetal that had been around since the early
'80s. Still, the spec sheet excites: 15 pounds of turbocharged, intercooled Boost through a 4.3-liter V-6 to the tune of
and getting that power to four tractive wheels, was a two-fold recipe for
performance. Between the turbo's
inherent tweakability and the insane number of parts available for the V-6,
the sky seemed the limit. (Stock Syclones are said to have more guts than a
lighter 300hp Corvette, but an unwritten GM mandate that Corvette would
remain performance king was in place.)
The sticker for the Syclone was around $25,000, pretty heady money in the
early '90s, but access to Corvette-like performance for between $5,000 and
$10,000 less than the all-American plastic fantastic got performance fans
thinking beyond mere passenger cars. (Syclone's silly spelling was courtesy
of Mercury, which retained rights to the legendary Cyclone tag.) Chunky
ground effects, 16-inch alloy wheels and tires, and a color choice limited
to black sent an ominous visual message to those in the know.
