ryan_manson@motortrend.com Built From Scratch ♠It’s a pretty interesting time to be a truck guy, given what the aftermarket has to offer us. State-of-the-art suspension designs allow us to build trucks that handle like a sports car. Modern engine designs yield power numbers over 500 hp with the reliability and driveability of a much more mild powerplant. Nearly every component, for the more popular models, is being reproduced, including most of the sheetmetal parts. Suspension components that work, motors that make reliable power, and all the parts to replace those well-worn originals are making it easier and easier to restore, maintain, and enjoy a vintage truck. But we can take things a step or two further, if we’d like. New, stamped steel bodies and sheetmetal components are now being reproduced in such a manner that it’s possible to build…

sinister ’56

When we hear about someone who owns and drives a ’56 Chevrolet pickup we assume they must be a classic truck enthusiast. When we hear about someone who owns and drives Porsches we assume they must be a German sports car enthusiast. When we found out about a guy who owns and drives Porsches and also owns and drives this slate gray custom Chevy 3100, our previous assumptions were blown away and replaced with a new one. We assume that someone who appreciates Chevy’s iconic haulers and Ferdinand’s iconic sports cars must be a pretty cool guy—or at least he drives a very cool truck. We saw this incredible 3100 at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas where it won a Chevy SEMA Design award for Truck of the Year.…

the easy way to shift

Modern GM transmissions can be more than a little tricky with all the wiring and tuning involved, but nobody said it needed to be that way. If only there were a little computer you could slap on your firewall that could connect your electronic fuel injection with your fancy new 4L60E, 4L65E, 4L80E, or 4L85E transmission. Better yet, it could give you full control over things like shift points, shift firmness, and torque converter lockup. Maybe you could even get a handy-dandy little touch-screen device that would allow you to control all those functions and monitor the transmission in real time! Man, wouldn’t that be nice? We’re guessing that by now you’ve read straight through our childish sarcasm and figured out this dreamy idea is in fact a reality called Go…

race-ready

Regardless of what age you are, there’s nothing finer than the experience you get when visiting your local dragstrip. The symphony of sounds mixed with the scent of race fuel and burnt rubber creates an atmosphere laced with enough adrenalin to make your pulse race. Now imagine growing up 5 miles away from your local track where every weekend you can hear the roar of supercharged and injected mills lunging full throttle from the line to race the quarter-mile for total domination. For Clay Stevens of Cordova, Maryland, the dream was as real as listening to it all right from his front porch growing up. It didn’t take long to fall under the spell of hot rodding and by the time he was 16, Clay was already hanging out at neighborhood…

carburetor conundrum

It’s true that carburetors are considered “old school” and aftermarket electronic fuel injection is considered state of the art and is continuing to grow in popularity. The obvious advantage of electronic fuel injection is the ability to “self tune” to keep air/fuel ratios in a prescribed range. On the downside, the most often heard criticisms of EFI are initial cost, complications in installation, including wiring and fuel system modifications, and the fear of “programing” changes that may be necessary to fine-tune the system. In contrast to the complicated nature and expense of EFI, carburetors are affordable and relatively simple. In most cases carburetors are easy to tune and there isn’t much to go wrong. In short, they’re simple, but just because something is simple doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Invented in…
