Per­for­mance Hits Pave­ment

Street Trucks - - TECH -

THIS ’90 CHEVRO­LET 454 SS BUILD GOES OUT OF THE WAY TO TRY TO BREAK THE MOLD. With its stock en­gine still in place, that’s the last that can be said for this Chevy.

With 30 bore, line hone and milled decks, the en­gine was given new life. Edel­brock heads,

in­take, head­ers and wa­ter pump have been added, leav­ing noth­ing half-done. An Isky cus­tom-grind camshaft milks the most out of the heart of this build with qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and per­for­mance. COMP Cams roller rock­ers do the same, pro­vid­ing an ag­gres­sive cam pro­file and us­ing all of the power this baby puts out. KB pis­tons, MSD dis­trib­u­tor, Aero­mo­tive fuel pres­sure reg­u­la­tor, Pow­er­mas­ter starter and al­ter­na­tor, Yukon lim­ited slip dif­fer­en­tial, 6AL

ig­ni­tion box and wires round out the en­gine pro­file. Dy­namic EFI pro­gram­mable com­puter and Moroso pan with pickup can also be found in this reimag­ined com­part­ment. On the back end, a Borla ex­haust with Magnaflow cats and a cus­tom side exit have this truck breath­ing right. On the in­side, Auto Me­ter pil­lar gauges have been added.

The sus­pen­sion re­ceived a Bell­tech 4- to 6-inch drop with Bell­tech front and rear sway bars for driver con­trol and su­pe­rior han­dling, and the whole build stands solid on 17x8 and 18x9 TTIIS wrapped in 235/60R17 and 265/60R18 Nitto tires. Brake Per­for­mance ro­tors and pads with Rus­sell stain­less lines keep the Chevy working clean. On the ex­te­rior, a Snug­top ton­neau gives the truck a mean pro­file even as it keeps ev­ery­thing in or­der.
