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.=)

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
