Theme Tuesdays: Sy/Tys

0

As a big first generation S10/Blazer fan the first time I discovered Syclones and Typhoons they shot to the top of my ‘favorite vehicles ever built’ list about as fast as they ran down the quarter mile.

I mean what’s not to like about an all wheel drive pickup/suv that could out run a Corvette and a Ferrari in stock form?

Held in high regard by many Sy/Tys are one of ‘those’ vehicles that people get a little prickly about when it comes to modification. Of course like everything else there are more than a few people willing to throw caution to the wind and turn something awesome into something amazing.

Or in some cases something just kind of interesting.

I bet the wheel and paint choice on this truck ruffles a few feathers within the Sy/Ty community

CCW Classics work on just about anything

This 92 is pretty well perfect: it’s got a pte 54 turbo, Sportmachine coils, 3″ drop leafs, rear dics, chipped, etc…
syty_11
Someone needs to make this reality, like now.
syty_12
Also if that same person could find more photos of this truck for me that would be sweet

While it looks like the owner raided the Lund catalog I do like the use of mesh wheels on a Sy

He is also not afraid to hoon it a bit…

Since there were only ten of these ever built the chances I will ever see one are pretty slim…

This build was very promising and then suddenly no updates. I hate cardomain for that. So. Very. Much. You can tease yourself here if you like

I’m not going to lie the first few photos of this truck I thought the wheels were photoshopped but it turns out they are actually just that color. It’s actualy You can read more about #2320 on sportmachines.net

One of two trucks in today’s post known as the Syborg, Speedhunters has the feature on this 410 horsepower and 440 foot pounds of torque monster
I was lucky enough to see this Syborg at SEMA in 2010…

Technically it stared as a Sonoma GT but there was no way I wasn’t including it
It came a long damn way
The twin Turbo 4.7 is just the tip of the iceberg with this truck, the build is here
syty_14
This belongs to “NoJimmy” on sy/ty.net

#lsineverything ls7 in this case
syty_5
The lowest of the bunch, perhaps the lowest period
At this years Camp N Drag

Alright so from here down things get a little wild…. You’ve been warned.

syty_17
That’s a 900hp 438 sitting in between the fenders of an actual Typhoon
syty_18
The owner put the motor in after grenading the turbo 6 twice over
syty_16
It is still all wheel drive with a beefed up diff up front and a Ford 9 in the rear. A bit more info on it is here

Last but not least I end things with this insane twin turbo Typhoon laying bumper:

Damn.
