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...



PS bought Fast and Furious DVD, should have been called Fast and Enfuriating....

    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.
  • amoralesamorales Member Posts: 196
    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.
  • amoralesamorales Member Posts: 196
    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
  • modvptnlmodvptnl Member Posts: 1,352
    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 Member Posts: 1,352
    that would be German muscle possibly made in Mexico. LOL!!!!
  • kg11kg11 Member Posts: 530
    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.
  • bamatundrabamatundra Member Posts: 1,583
    315 hp, and 457 ft lb of torque with only 5lb. of boost.

  • mullins87mullins87 Member Posts: 959
    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.
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Member Posts: 2,721
    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 Member 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.
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Member Posts: 2,721
    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 Member 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.
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Member Posts: 2,721
    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 Member 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.
  • natureboy1natureboy1 Member Posts: 55
    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 Member Posts: 897
    Exactly how much does that Ram cost?
  • lariat1lariat1 Member Posts: 461
    If you have to ask how much it costs then the truck is not for you.
  • sc0rpi0sc0rpi0 Member 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 Member 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 Member 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.

  • montecarlo31montecarlo31 Member Posts: 1
    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 Member 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".
  • quadrunner500quadrunner500 Member Posts: 2,721
    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 Member Posts: 897
    Nothing special.
    Amsoil air filter, Flowmaster duals, what? 90% of the TTORA active members run that on their 4x4s.
  • jaijayjaijay Member Posts: 162
    Here is the original post from 99RedHawk. I think if you read his post it is a little more than just an exhaust and an air filter. With a 1.85 sixty launch and the truck size I think that this is quite commendable.

  • txyank1txyank1 Member Posts: 1,010
    In my book that doesn't count.
  • mgdvhmanmgdvhman Member Posts: 4,157
    I had it on a car once......and it counted all the time I was using it!

    ...still got the entire system.....I need to unload it some day...

  • bamatundrabamatundra Member Posts: 1,583

    45% increase in horsepower and torque with only 4lb. of boost. That's 345 horses and 470 of torque - I gotta have one!

  • bigfurbigfur Member Posts: 649
    GMCs pick-up truck answer to the Typhoon. Same 4.3L twin turbo charged V6 and all wheel drive system. Ill put that truck up against any other stock factory built truck ever made thus far.
  • modvptnlmodvptnl Member Posts: 1,352
    The Syclone was first, followed by the Typhoon. The 4.3 had a single turbo charger, not a twin turbo.

    While running high 13's puts them a red c hair quicker than a current Lightning, there is no comparison in actual function. You can actually use a Lightning as a truck to tow 5000 pounds or carry 800(not that you would) where the Gm's had no ability to work.
  • txyank1txyank1 Member Posts: 1,010
    in the bed!!
  • ryanbabryanbab Member Posts: 7,240
    this past summer i seen a lightning towing a travel trailer. I had to do a double take. Couldnt believe my eyes
  • modvptnlmodvptnl Member Posts: 1,352
    Actually, after putting two people in the cab(GMC) you might be able to put 100 pounds in the bed!!! (I know, the Lightning doesn't have that much more payload but it will actually tow)

    Ryan, if I had one, I wouldn't hesitate to tow the Sea Doos to the lake. Heck, if I was just taking one passenger I'd hook up the boat. I realize that's just me and most owners don't use 'em that way.
  • flagger34flagger34 Member Posts: 1
    Check out the Ford Lightnings... 380 HP and 450 lbs torque with 373 gears stock. This thing is fast!
  • ak4x4ak4x4 Member Posts: 126
    First take a 1 ton with an 8 foot bed. Add one Honda(In the bed) with a annoying 6 inch pipe tip and you have a furious car with one fast and powerful truck.

    Take any import truck(non-full size) and add all the mods you can to it to the tune of 3+g's add one annoying exaust and 20 inch rims. What do you have: A furious truck that will get whipped buy every fast tuuck with real power.

    Get a real full size truck, with a real engine(Like the Chevy 8100) and now you have fast, but not furious.

    The last one: Just buy a lightning, or Dakota R/T and End it all!
  • txyank1txyank1 Member Posts: 1,010
    has a short piece on a "PT10" that someone put together. A PT Cruiser, HIGHLY modified, turned into a mini-pickup with a V10 Viper engine! Yowza.
  • ryanbabryanbab Member Posts: 7,240
    yea jetskis would make sense but this guy had an enclosed travel trailer. The rear of the lightning had a some sag to it in the back.
  • 2002svtf1502002svtf150 Member Posts: 30
    The Lightning is the only current contender. The Syclone, Big-Block El Camino's, SS 454's, 440 Dodge's, etc. are now in the past. I'm aware that some are still around, but there is no current threat to the Lightning. Maybe the SRT-10 will be built, & it may get the V-10 from the Viper's toy box, I doubt it'll get the 6-Speed, (I hope it does), & it may get 400+ hp & 450+ ft/lbs of torque. The fact remains however, until it is produced it isn't a contender. If it is produced, please use the latest pictured 20" wheels, & not those hideous gray 24"ers on the concept truck.
  • kg11kg11 Member Posts: 530
    The SRT-10 is slated for production.I just heard from a friend,they'll be on the market in the late summer or early fall,500HP 500ft/lb torque,6 spd and it's own suspention!I wonder what they'll give me for the 2500HD.
  • amoralesamorales Member Posts: 196
    Wonder what they will give me for MY C2500 spanker.
  • hersbirdhersbird Member Posts: 323
    I have a factory stock truck and would say it's the fastest naturally aspirated pickup ever. Mine stock will run the 1/4 mile in 14.7 and will pull .88 on the skidpad. I have since now done 1 mod to it and that is a new computer. So now I don't have a speed limiter which I sure makes it faster then I'll ever need to go. I have a 2000 Dakota R/T regular cab. Its the best year for the R/T IMO with out pre cats in the exhaust the 2001 and 2002's got, but with bigger injectors, better cooling, and electric fan the 98 and 99's didn't have. So I have about 350 ft-lbs of torque, 3.92 gears on 28" tall tires, limited slip, and weigh only 3700 pounds. I have no doubt a current generation Lightning would beat me, but I'd be willing to give a stock syclone at try, it would be closer. My truck cost $18,000 new and I'm sure given the price difference between it and anything else put into mods in my truck, I would easilly smoke them. It's better bang for the buck then a Z28 or a Mustang GT. I don't really consider the supercharged Toyotas "factory" trucks but would be willing to beat them anyway. The superchargers are dealer installed. If you allwo that logic I should be able to go into the Mopar Performance catalog and have the dealer install any of that stuff and still call my truck factory. Which means I can just plunk down $4800 for the 425 HP, 406 ci, motor and call it my new factory Dakota 6.7 R/T!
  • saddaddysaddaddy Member Posts: 566
    a supercharged Yota s-runner. I have no numbers, but I really believe that they run 0-60 a split second faster than the Lightning. Naturally aspirated, your right, you win that one. I find it kinda sorry that Dodge only gets that much performance from such a humongous engine. Don't get me wrong, having something that big under the hood is very brag-worthy, but they need to include a little technology in there too. They should be way more powerful than they are, IMO. Oh, and you CAN consider the s/c'ed s-runner stock b/c it is factory installed and warrantied. Thats a little easier to say about a blower than a new engine. Im sure a blown 4.7 would be a contest for the 6.7 too. Both trucks still "stock" of course.

    To all Lightning fans, don't mean to start anything with that earlier comment. The lightning would surely win by some distance in the 1/4, and would definitely win a contest starting at 60 or so. Those blow s-runners will run like a scalded ape. I have seen s-runner time slips that showed 0-60 times that were significantly better than advertised Lightning times, though.
  • obyoneobyone Member Posts: 7,841
    Forget yota....Dodge has the viper motor in a truck for a lightning killer 500HP with 500 lb. ft. torque in 2003.
