ALL-BLACK 1992 454 SS
The second truck in Sriyantha’s 454 SS line-up is an all-black 1992 model that he took to another level.
Purchased in 2014 from the original owner’s family after he passed away, the truck took about a year to complete. What separates this truck from the pack? Well, Don Hardy Racing built the 408-cubic-inch
LS, for starters. DHR assembled a wicked LS with a forged crankshaft and 4340 rods and a custom grind camshaft with 238-232 duration and 622-612 lift. A Cloyes timing chain ensures proper rotation while CNC ported LS3 heads keep the pavement stomping aluminum mill breathing properly. Topping the tire blazing powerhouse is a 102 MM Holley LS3 modular high ram intake fed by a Precision 6766 turbo charger pushing up to 27 pounds of boost. Bosch 95-pound injectors ensure proper fuel delivery. Dual electric fans and an aluminum radiator keep things cool while custom built headers feed a custom built 3-inch stainless exhaust capped with Magnaflow mufflers. Pushing out 840 rear-wheel horsepower and 800 ft-lbs of torque the truck is an absolute beast and surprises more than its fair share of supercars on the road. Transferring all of this neck snapping power to the ground is a GM 4L80-E transmission stuffed with a 2800 stall converter and shift kit.
Adjusting the stance to the proper altitude is a combination of Belltech spindles and QA1 coil-overs and a rear frame C-notch all done by Griffith Metal Shaping in Austin, Texas. Tackling the tarmac under this hard-hitting muscle truck are Boyd Coddington Timeless 5 billet wheels mounted on Nitto P245/40ZR20 front and P295/40ZR20 rear rubber. The factory GM 14-bolt rear end with 3.42 gears is still intact and takes abuse from the pavement blistering LS. This truck had 7,000 original miles on it when Sriyantha purchased it, and it now has 7,800 miles on it. These trucks do get driven, but extra care is taken to keep the odometer levels in check!
