Turbo 8.1 Silverado on the dyno FINALLY after months of fabrication

The turbo 8.1 project also known as uglytruck is finally done and on the dyno so we can see how much horsepower and torque this big block turbo truck puts down to the ground! Its a 2000 Silverado with an 8.1 swapped in, but the engine is 100% stock so I was a little nervous about turning up the boost because the pistons have a tendency to crack under pressure. We’re running an ultra conservative tune up in terms of timing and AFR, but that should help it live a long and happy life.
