1998 GMC Sonoma SLS Supercharged
Here's a one family owned, super low miles, GMC Sonoma SLS! The truck has
only 32k miles on it! And if that's not unbelievable enough, it also has a
supercharged 4.3L V6 and a Transco built automatic transmission with a
shift kit! The engine is a the original 4.3L with a Powerdyne Supercharger, MSD 6A box, MSD wires, Granatelli
mass air flow sensor, JBA Cat4Ward headers, dual Flowmaster Exhaust, complete K&N air intake system, air
conditioning, and power steering! The truck was Dyno'd between 400-425hp! This
is the factory SLS sport edition of the Sonoma, so it came with a posi-trac
rear end, lowered suspension (plus 1 inch of aftermarket rear lowering),
and sway bars. The truck has had the front brakes upgrade to larger
calipers and cross drilled/slotted rotors to slow all the new found power
down! The battery has been relocated to a very cleanly installed box in the
bed. Inside you'll find an interior that still looks and feels brand new!
It has bucket seats, fold down rear seats, factory CD player, power
windows, power mirrors, power doors, and there's a custom center console
for the B&M ratchet shifter and Autometer Boost and vacuum gauges that looks factory as
well! The truck is equipped with an anti theft system from the factory to
keep all your stuff safe too! The exterior of the truck shows just how
little use this thing has gotten! The paint is in great shape, it has a
Truxedo bed cover, the bed is Rhino-lined, and it has an attractive set of
17 inch American Racing wheels with sticky Yokohama ES100 tires! (225/45/17
fronts and 275/40/17 rears) The truck comes with a Crane Cams PowerMax
power tuner in case you ever need to have the dealership look at something.
The truck can have the tune returned to stock for that. This Sonoma is as
clean and sharp as they come! All the right products and equipment were
used to build this subtle rocket ship!

1991 GMC Syclone Drag Racing Racelegal.com 1-6-2012
friday night watch as this 1991 gmc syclone drag races on the 1/8 mile drag
GMC Syclone is a high-performance version of the GMC Sonoma pickup truck.
Produced in 1991, the Syclone spawned the similarly powered 1992-1993 GMC
Typhoon SUV. Another vehicle, the GMC Sonoma GT, offered less performance
but was seen as a companion model.
At the time it was introduced, the Syclone was the quickest stock pickup
truck being produced in the world. Auto magazines compared its acceleration
favorably to a variety of sports cars including the Corvette and - in a
memorable comparison test in Car and Driver magazine - a Ferrari. Featuring
a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, all
wheel drive, and 4 wheel anti-lock brakes, the specifications had more in
common with a Porsche than most other pickup trucks.
Both the Syclone and Typhoon trucks featured a Mitsubishi TD06-17C 8 cm²
turbocharger and Garrett water/air Intercooler attached to a 4.3 L
LB4 V6 engine with unique pistons, main caps, head gaskets, intake
manifolds, fuel system, Exhaust
manifolds, and a 48mm twin bore throttle body from the 5.7 L GM Small-Block
engine. All Syclones and Typhoons had a 700R4 (4L60) 4-speed automatic
transmission. A Borg Warner all wheel drive transfer case split torque with
35% forward and 65% to the rear wheels. Both trucks featured sport
modifications to the standard suspensions. The Syclone was the first
production truck to receive a 4 wheel anti-lock braking system. Output was
280 hp (209 kW) and 350 lb·ft (475 N·m). The Syclone, when new, was
capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds and could do a
quarter-mile run in 13.4 seconds at 98 mph (158 km/h). Car & Driver tested
the Syclone and it ran 0-30 in 1.3 seconds with a 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, the
1/4 mile was 13.06.
In 1991 Syclones were available in black only.
