Although making fast cars faster is the motto around Hennessey Performance, it doesnt mean their techs will shy away from making something like a little pickup run four-second eighth-mile times. This square-body S10 was parked in the sea of Raptors, Navigators, and Demons outside of the shop and was instantly eye catching. With the front clip off of the truck and the epic blow-through, turbo V8 glistening in the sun, this truck looked ready to take on a field of no-prep cars. We caught up with owner Trey Orsak, who purchased the truck four years ago. The truck originally had a nitrous big-block that sent it through the lights in the five-teens at around 140 mph. Trey was looking to try some different suspension tuning. I wanted to play the leaf spring game, he said. Once he dug into it, the build snowballed, and the only things that were left were the cage, cab, one of the bedsides, and the seat. --> As it sits, the engine made 1,400 horsepower at the tires before it ran out of fuel pump. Now with an Enderle 19.5 gallon-per-minute mechanical fuel pump, 1,800hp is a possibility. That figure comes from a monstrous 101mm Precision Turbo strapped to a blow-through APD carburetor, Dart engine block with All Pro heads backed by a Powerglide and PTC converter. Before, it [blow through carburetors] was witchcraft, said Trey. Though not savvy with computer tuning, he can make a carburetor do what needs doing. The truck has yet to make a pass at the drag strip, but the goal in the eighth-mile is e.t.s in the 4.40-range and 160mph. We hope to see what goes down with this red rocket soon and stay tuned for more stories from our visit to Hennessey Performance.
