The world of motorsports takes many forms, from drag racing to circle track, from land speed racing to offroad, and all points in between. One thing that all motorsports has in common, though, is the love of the LS powerplant.
Whether you’re building on a budget using a junkyard iron block, or putting together a price-is-no-object top shelf race engine, the LS architecture provides an excellent foundation for making power, and as a result we see them turning up all over the place. Case in point – this over-the-top Chevy mud bog monster.
This video, shot in mid-October of 2014, shows the truck going through its paces. According to the description, the engine is a 6 liter LSX fed by a single 83mm Bullseye turbo, backed by a TCI TH400 automatic with a manual valve body and a 3,200 RPM stall converter.
The venue is described as the “84th Street Mud Bog,” which is clearly popular judging by the huge number of both spectators and trucks (most of them buried to the axles) in attendance. Googling that doesn’t turn up a lot more information, but it does bring up a ton of videos – all we can tell you is that there’s someone named Aaron involved, and it’s in Caledonia, Michigan.
If there are any of our fans out there who can shed some light on this apparently “locals only” mud hole, drop us a line in the comments below!
