Tuning the Turbo GMC Jimmy!

A few weeks back I visited my good friend Gary Hart to attend the Street Rod Nationals in Springfield, MO. I took random videos of us at the event, and driving/tuning Gary's super cool 1950 GMC truck - with a turbocharged, electronic fuel injected, 1950's era 302 cubic inch six cylinder. As you can see, she runs like a champ! and makes decent power at 10psi!
