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.
