    Default Q2 2018 TOTQ - Bang4theBuck

    I’ll try to make a long story short here. My father purchased the truck brand new in 1999 and when he pulled it into the driveway..... well I knew one day I had to have it! Fast forward to 2011 when he asked me to help sell the truck..... To his surprise I said I would buy it! (Being that im 6’4” and that I've always messed around with 4 cylinder turbo cars I guess he never thought I would be interested in it) After purchasing first thing was first and I had to make myself fit! I purchased some seats from cipher automotive and bolted the sliders right to the floor gaining 2 inches of head room! Next was a smaller Momo Devil steering wheel, and lastly I had to modify the brake pedal so it is now flush with the go pedal (every mm counts! Lol) Now onto the mods I’ve done over the years... I’ll list them for simplicity sake!

    R/T cam (.456 / .467)
    HS na roller rockers
    Hardened pushrods
    EQ 2.02 heads (no port work)
    Hughes intake manifold
    Hughes billet 55mm tb
    Mopar ceramic mids w 3.5” exhaust and 3.5” cat
    Vortech V3 supercharger kit w tial 50 bov
    Aem methanol injection kit
    Asp overdrive crank pulley
    Home made belt wrap pulley and tensioner
    42lb. Injectors with hipotek rails and return line fuel setup
    Anderson 4” power pipe
    Msd ignition w taylor 10mm wires
    MSaine valve body, trans cooler, 2800 stall
    Detroit tru-trac w stock gears
    Centerline convo pros w 28” hoosiers
    Nascar style spoiler w pop rivets

    With these mods I have run a best of 11.6 at 119.5 mph with the stock trac loc going bad. Yet to run with the detroit tru trac... new times coming soon!!

    Man it's a beautiful truck.
    What does your father think about his old ride?

    Project Maverick. I feel the need, the need for speed

    He loves it! I try to take him places in it as much as I can! It feels really good to keep this truck on 4 wheels and on the streets instead of broken on jackstands! I feel like I would let him down any other way!

    Cool that its still in the family and he approves of the mods.

    My old man thinks I'm an idiot but I can see the smile he's trying to hide when I take him for a ride and roast the tires.
