That GMC truck looks awesome. I hope mine ends up with a similar stance.

Question for you guy, The turbo I am buying will need a 5 inch down pipe. Instead of running that under the truck, I was thinking about letting it exit the fender. This is what most of the drag race guys do. Would this break the rules of modifying the body? I don't see how it would be an aero advantage, but I don't want to break any rules.

Thanks,

Gary Lewis

Modified Pick-ups uses gas coupe rules so i think it would be ok. But you should alway run it by the techs.

Yeah you can run the exhaust like that or out through the wheel well like we did.

Awesome! That will make plumbing the exhaust much easier. I want to keep the down pipe away from everything if possible. I am sure it will be glowing red after a WOT 5 mile pull.

Those trucks look awesome. I am out of school next week and am itching to get started on the truck. I paid for all the turbo stuff today and have a mach up engine ready to start making all the turbo plumbing.

I have a question to you experienced LSR, my S 10 has a cowl hood on it similar to truck #5003, I was planning on ditching it and running a flat hood because I don't need the extra hood clearance and I thought it might help with the aero. Do you guys feel like this is a good idea? I have a cowl on my Buick and I know it really helps get the heat out from under the hood. It might also help get air that is trapped under the hood out? 

I am trying to gather as much information as possible to be informed in the build process.

Thanks,

Gary Lewis

I was building a truck and by a twist of fate SDSU built a quarter scale model
and did wind tunnel testing.
If you need help I'll do whatever it takes to get you going.
The two are a little different shape wise but I do have a SCTA rule book.
PM me. I'm in.

I would say don't run it if you don't need it and keep the cowl to hood area well sealed.  Here is some more inspiration for you. We needed the scoop to clear twin dominators on a high ram intake. We didn't need the huge opening on that scoop but ran out of time to make it properly small.

I got the chance to go to the PRI show yesterday. After talking to some vendors and meeting some of our supplies people I hopefully have some people primed up to give me some good deals on some parts to make this S-10 happen. It was a cool experience and there was a lot to see and take it. Hopefully it pans out to some sponsorships

I am horrible about updating stuff like this, but I have made some progress. I am in my last semester of college so time is limited, but I got a turbo, blow off valve, waste gate, and piping and have been plugging away at the motor. I am always working on a budget so that is key. If I do anything exciting I will post some pictures!
