I don't really have a Ferocious pick-up, maybe a little irreverent...loud exhaust, some mods, but if anybody has them, please list your proud import car killer trucks...

Regards,

Andy

    You buy an S-Runner from Toyota.
    Downey headers
    Gibson catback
    TRD charger (factory warranty)
    Injen Intake
    This will give you a hotrod that weights 3000 lbs and has 265hp V6.
    There are videos of a truck like this racing a V8 Firebird, and standing ground.

    Check out the new Dodge truck that was showed at the Detroit auto show. It has the 500Hp and 500ft-lb viper engine in it. It is going to be available this spring supposedly.

    were fun and relatively quick, but the most fun of all was my '90 454SS. In a straight line that is. If I "babied" it I could get about 10 to 11 mpg. Usually got about 8 to 9.

    I also heard of the Tacoma-S with the blower option. HP is almost same as the infamous '92-'93 GMC S10 SYCLONE, Blazer TYPHOON which had a turbo 4.3 to the tune of 280 big ones. Motor trend called it the "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURBO". At $30k in the early 90's, that was one Ferocious mini truck.

    but didn't realize Ford had come out with the supercharged Harley D. S'Crew. I was looking at CrewCabs here on Edmunds and there it is. Also available in a Gray color now.

    let loose with the SS pick-ups to do battle with Ford's blower trucks. The SSR is a hybrid and I feel has no true competition

    1985 Ford F250. 460 with Edelbrock cam, intake, Doug Thorley Tri Y headers, true dual with Flowmasters exhaust, straight up cam timing. Have no idea how fast or quick but it would pull a Nordic 26' boat PLUS 11' Western Wilderness camper up either side of the Baker Grade or Grapevine at 60-65 no problems. I'm guestimating if stock torque was around 400, it was close to 500 after mods.

    GMC 454 and the F250 were in the 45MPH range when stock.
  • 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 reg cab short bed 5.2 American V-8 5 speed stick. cat back exhaust,msd ignition, high flow throttle body and air filter.supercharger on the way... American muscle.
  • modvptnlmodvptnl Posts: 1,352
    that would be German muscle possibly made in Mexico. LOL!!!!

    Vortech blower,never timed 1/4 mi.Never used as a truck.Didn' perform like a car.Traded it for the Roush Mustang.I plan to Whipple-charge the 8.1 ,but I know it'll stil handle like a school bus.

    I never owned one, would have loved to have been old enough to have bought one. I've read several articles about them. One thing I do remember is they supposedly would turn quicker 1/4 mile and 0-60 times than a new Corvette. I'd say that's fairly impressive for a mid 70's stock pickup.
  • On the viagra-charged tindra, they put Brembo rotors on each corner. Guess the normal weak drums/warping rotor combination weren't up to it!
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    And what do they have that Chev 1/2 ton on - estrogen? The Tundra easily outbrakes it with drum rears.

    Tundra owners already have to keep a close check on their rearview mirrors to keep those pesky Chevs from crashing into the back. It is a bear to pick those Chev bowties out of my tow hitch.
  • The Chevy brakes stop at least as well as tindra's, and last MUCH longer. But if your crumple zone DOES get rear ended by one, it'll be your proctologist removing the bow tie!
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    You know the Whimperado 1/2 ton has weak brakes. Truck Trend tested the Whimperado against the Tundra in their Jun '01 issue. The Tundra was loaded with 1350 lb. and STILL outbroke the EMPTY Whimperado.

    Edmund's said that the Whimperado brakes were so weak that they narrowly avoided an accident.

    Car and Driver said the Whimperado brakes started out weak in their long-term test and got weaker. They compared the Whimperado's brakes to a '78 Chevy Impala.

    I posted earlier that the supercharged Tundra has 315 h.p I was wrong - it has 340 horses. Sorta makes the Whimperado look... Well... WIMPY!!

    Realistically Tundra owners would not have problems with Whimperados because the Chevs would be rapidly shrinking dots in the Tundra's rearview mirror.
  • Bama, your shaky brakes had to be replaced on the S/C tindra because they don't provide adequate braking, a real danger to others. Your wimpy drums are not made for real work.
  • 2k1trd2k1trd Posts: 301
    Well i wouldn't say it's ferocius but definetely fast compared to stock.My Truck has gained much respect in my town.
  • That new Ram SRT with the new 8.3 liter Viper V10 does look pretty sweet (it has 24 inch rims!). I have to give it to Dodge on that one. With 500 horses and 500 ft/lbs of torque the Lighting will be sucking wind in a head to head competition. It'll be interesting to see when Toyota and Chevy bring out their "sport truck" variants....
  • sc0rpi0sc0rpi0 Posts: 897
    Exactly how much does that Ram cost?
  • lariat1lariat1 Posts: 461
    If you have to ask how much it costs then the truck is not for you.
  • sc0rpi0sc0rpi0 Posts: 897
    I was just wondering. I know what the truck looks like, and those 24 inch rims make the truck look like a rice rocket.
    But obviously you bought your Ram 1500 without asking about the price?
  • lariat1lariat1 Posts: 461
    I new about what they cost and I knew what I was willing to pay. The above statement is something I use to determine if I need a new toy. If you have to ask how much it is you really cant afford it. Most high end toys are like that. For example if you are going to buy a new 40' yacht and you are asking the manufacture how much the boat is it sounds like you are conserned about the price and really dont have the $500,000 laying around to buy it. The same goes for a truck like the SRT I am sure if you are not willing to pay the premium price it comes with the dealer will hold out for someone who will.
  • sc0rpi0sc0rpi0 Posts: 897
    I knew what my Tacoma cost, and what my limit was too. However, this is a new truck, and price on it can be anything. I am asking because it'd be interesting to compare it to others.
  • Tundra, I agree your truck breaks are better with no load, load that POS truck and and it won't out brake, accerate or tow a chevy or a ford or a dodge, My friend has one and I have to laugh at it's work ability. As a daily driver, the toyota is better, as a work truck, it's junk, GM builds a much better work truck, rough around the edges but built 110% stronger.
  • bamatundrabamatundra Posts: 1,583
    Get your head out of the clouds and read the Jun '01 Truck Trend. Tundra outbraked the empty Wimperado when loaded with 1350 lb.

    Truck Trend preferred the Tundra as a tow vehicle. The Tundra got 3mpg better than the GM when towing.

    Tundra was chosen "Best in Class".
  • Tindra has DRUM rear brakes, and by now famous for warping front rotors, steering wheel flutter, and brake dust on the rims thick enough to choke a coal miner with black lung.

    Bama was duped. News that a supercharged TRD tindra is coming out with 4 wheel discs, (like the regular tindra should have) means his jealousy of your superior 4 wheel abs disc braking system, can be repressed no longer!
  • sc0rpi0sc0rpi0 Posts: 897
    Nothing special.
    Amsoil air filter, Flowmaster duals, synthetics...so what? 90% of the TTORA active members run that on their 4x4s.
