Finally got some things squared away while I'm off working crazy hours in Texas and I can start working on the truck again.

Here's a little video I made for the truck. Been wanting to make this one for a while now:

Truck will be sporting a full factory Xtreme kit with an SS front bumper and Cal-Vu mirrors. The hood will be a carbon fiber piece from VIS racing and the roof is recieving a one-off carbon fiber insert that will fit betweent he factory rain gutters. A Leer tonneau cover will be given a custom treatment of carbon fiber and paint.

Suspension will be QA1 adjustables in front, Z85 rear springs with billet blocks and QA1 shocks. Belltech sway bars front and rear will keep the body roll in check.

Brakes are going to be from Wilwood while the wheels are 20" Bonspeed Malibu 6's.

The interior is going to recieve some changes in the way of new door panels, center console, iPad and additional equipment from Hertz/Audison.

The engine will be rocking an STS turbo kit with intercooler and super modulation efan. The transmission will recieve billet servos and Royal Purple synthetics. The rear end will be beefed up and will also recieve Wilwood brakes.

Want to thank the Wolfpack and SSK for their continued support, as well as my friends at and Auto Radio Stereo in Sacramento for all their help and support thus far.

This is going to be a project where we can develop new products for the 355 and show their performance in the real world as well as on the showroom floor. This truck will be driven, beaten, and bruised constantly and is the ideal platform for a performance oriented 355 truck.

I hope everyone enjoys it and will be on the lookout soon for some new gear for the 355. For those interested, I'm always looking for new shops and companies to work with who have a passion for the hobby and want to develop new products to help both their business, and the community grow. If you are interested, please feel free to send me and email or PM and I will reply ASAP.

Thank you.

Re: Introductions, of sorts...

Looking good bro. Don't forget to debadge the truck. It will give it a cleaner look!
Re: Introductions, of sorts...

Cool bro keep it up. I know u can do it!!!
Re: Introductions, of sorts...

Keep it going bro and finish the build
Ive had a few :lol:i but i just ignore them. I dont even try ever since i lost against my friends gran marques
A nice nitto nt555 drag radial will do the job
Damn, one comment and now we have a turbo/v8 battle :lol:
Really interested in the ridetech monotube setup.

And just like u said about the autox, easier said than done. Takes skill. I had a guy ride with me. The class helps a lot. Just wish I had your power. My truck is too slow....
I see prerunner fenders, decoma grill, and uber wide nittos. What's going on under the hood? looks interesting
Looking forward to it. Take some burnout pics
Got to start getting more seat time and practicing your autox and speed stops and work on your reaction times on the strip
Oh yeah that's gonna be fun. U ran 275s last time correct?
Inretested on how those springs work. Are they stiffer than the normal ones? I ask because I will soon be getting a set of qa1s. Im pretty happy with how my 275 nt555s grip on the track. I dont have nearly as much power to break the tires loose thou :lol:
