Check Out This Bed Mounted Turbo Truck With A Crazy Loud Spooling Bed-Side Downpipe Exhaust
This is one of the first compact trucks produced by GM. This is basically a rebadged Isuzu KB. From 1972 it is also known as Chevrolet LUV. The Arab oil embargo from 1973 made GM think about designing a compact pickup truck. The GMC and the Chevrolet pickup trucks were identical apart from the grille. The pickup truck from the below video is a GMC Sonoma GT. The Sonoma GT was a performance package available at this time. It was only available on the 2WD regular cab short bed Sonoma. We could say that it was a limited version as only 806 vehicles were built.
Under the hood of this compact pickup truck a Vortec 4.3-liter V6 engine was installed. This was the 1992 model year. The later years GMC equipped this small ride with a LB4 4.3-liter V6 engine with lower compression pistons and a turbocharger. The total output was increased from 195 horsepower to 280 horsepower. When you attend a car event you could see some very insane stuff. We are going to show you one of the nuttiest turbo placements ever. Under the hood here you could find a turbocharged LSX. One big turbocharger is added on the top of this madness. Have you ever seen an intercooler on the back of the truck with a bed-mounted turbocharger and a bed-side down-pipe exhaust?
The guy who filmed this took the advantage to jump in the bed and see what it’s like to be there for a ride.

He took one hell of a ride along side the bed-mounted turbocharger. There is something that should be noticed here – the turbo lag and intercooler heat soak is something real here.
