The guys at Hoonigan delivers one of the coolest episodes of the Daily Transmission to date. Jeff Kay brought along a twin-turbocharged LS-powered Toyota pickup that comes with K&N cone filters peering out of the headlight openings!
Under the hood is a GM 4.8-liter iron block equipped with a ZR1 cam and 6.0-liter heads. Moving on to the rear, Jeff has a lawn mower and some other stuff that’s completely bolted on to the frame. Those are all for show but he also has some serious stuff like the trick fuel system with a stock GM FlexFuel sensor which is capable of adjusting the tune based on the fuel in the tank. Pretty cool huh?
When the twin Turbonetics are running, the engine sends approximately 700 ponies to the wheels, but since this ‘stokish’ tagged Toyota is fairly light weight, expect the power to weight ratio to be at par with most supercars. All the oomph is channeled rearward via McLeod RXT twin disc to a GM T56 gearbox, then onto a rebuilt Ford 9-inch rear with 3.55 gears.
Joining the badass pickup is a 1000HP Cadillac CTS-V that lines up for what could well be the shortest drag race ever as it took place in the Hoonigan yard. That’s roughly 40 feet from start to finish. The first race is a dead heat with no clear winner, so the two vehicles lined up for a second go around. This time, Jeff’s ‘Yota pickup gets a little more traction and pulls ahead of the CTS-V. After his emphatic win, Jeff ended the day with a smoke show as his truck let loose some enormous clouds.
