10.3 @ 132mph - 5.3L + Turbonium
Robert's S10 out at the Memphis Motorsports Park on July 24, 2009. Got in
the 14psi spring for the wastegate and went out to see what she'd do. Only
got the Boost up to 17psi on this
run, but 132mph isn't too shabby. 1.5 60' was pretty decent. With a
little more work she might visit the single digit timeslips!
The truck has a junkyard 5.3L that hasn't been touched. It has a little T4
based T76 turbo pumping up the jams.
The built powerglide handles the shifting back to the 9" rearend. 4 link
in the rear with stock, cut springs up front. It's nothing fancy yet, but
it's going way faster than we
thought it would already. More parts and faster times are coming!
Robert's Turbo S10 goes 11.22
Robert put together this S-10, and this is one of the first shake down runs
it made. The truck has a stock GM 5.3L engine, a power glide transmission,
a 9" rearend, and 275MT Drag Radials. The turbo is a T76, and it's running on the 7psi
wastegate spring right now. Once the truck gets a roll cage and some race
gas we'll see what it can do with a little more Boost. Can't wait!
This run launched at 3500RPM off the trans brake, and he Robert shifted to
2nd at 6000RPM. The tune is very conservative right now (11:1 AFR) since
the truck is running 93oct pump gas.
