Another welcome deviation from the standard sport truck creed is a motor that isn't stock. While the LS3's 426 hp kicked out far more giddy-up than Cory was accustomed to in factory trim, he stabbed a Fastlane 232/236-at-0.050 hydraulic roller into the short-block with just 750 miles on the odometer. It was matched up with a set of Kooks 1.75-inch long-tube headers, dual 3-inch MagnaFlow mufflers, and a cold-air induction system and PCM tuning from Fastlane, Inc. With a combo that's conceivably putting out in excess of 500 hp, Cory doesn't regret crossing over to the bed-less scene one bit.

Perhaps it's because drag racing is in his family bloodline, but Cory's having a hard time satisfying his new craving for horsepower. "Compared to the trucks I'm used to driving, this car really hauls. I'm having so much fun with it that I'll probably strap on a Magnuson supercharger pretty soon," he says. In the meantime, his new ride has already drawn lots of attention, and several people have brought in their fifth-gens for a Kustom Werx transformation. Cory admits that he isn't ready to give up trucks just yet, but with his newfound passion for speed, maybe he can at least convince his customers that there's nothing wrong with making some real power.
