Quickshift Update 1-25-12
Update for Project Quickshift (1-25-12)
Truck is just finished at Motor Machine Super Shop. Tune is done and the
truck is making power and driving like a champ. This is a collection of
videos I have taken during the course of recent events. Sorry for the poor
picture quality. For some reason my phone likes to change it's settings
back to default every once in a while instead of shooting in 720p like I
told it to...
A HUGE thanks goes out to Don and Bob at Motor Machine Super Shop in
Carmichael, CA. I couldn't have done it without them.
Also, big thanks to STS turbo, Sinsity
Kustomz, HiLEDs, Auto Radio Stereo, Over The Top Performance, Jonny_Vico,
Cory (05_quick4door), Mike B (emaxxer), and all who gave encouragement and
advice. It has been a very rough and tiring road, but we finally did it.
Enjoy the video

Took the little truck to Sac Raceway to see how it liked the new NT420S
tires I had put on this winter and I have to say, the results speak for

QS 500hp or Bust (again...)
After our appearance in Truckin Magazine and the saga of the blown motor,
we decided to come back stronger than ever and build something most people
had never even dreamed of.
Project: Quickshift is now, to my knowledge, the worlds first vehicle to
have forged internals for the GM Atlas 5cyl motor. It made 350rwhp in this
video and we are currently working to get that figure to over 400hp, which
roughly translates to over 500hp at the motor. In the coming weeks Motor
Machine Super Shop will be working to finish the motor build out and show
that 500hp in a reg. cab mid size truck, is plenty for anyone.
