Nearly 20 minutes of tire shredding action and jumping LS-powered off-road trucks is what’s in store for you in the video above. Through the lens of the guys at The Hoonigans, we have the pleasure of re-living LS Fest West presented by Holley Performance Products, which took place just a few weeks ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Throughout the video, you’ll probably see a handful of cars we featured in our daily coverage, including some of the coolest drift cars that were there (and yes, they were absolutely LS-powered). For starters, you may recall this Hoonigans favorite, Josh’s turbocharged 5.3-liter V8 swapped Toyota Hilux.
Josh’s Hilux is pumpin’ out tire smoke like no one’s business, and that “little” 5.3-liter V8 is no joke.
If trucks are your thing, and more specifically, trucks jumping ramps, skip to about six minutes into the video and watch a white crew-cab Silverado smack its front clip on the pavement (and then again on a concrete divider, coming to a stop). Just after the ten-minute mark, you’ll find our friend Jeff Kay’s twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 swapped Mazda truck, aka Stock_ish. Jeff went so hard that the engine got hot enough to melt the oil filler cap. Check out the full video above and tell us which LS-powered ride was your favorite.
