VIDEO: 1000 HP Cummins is 7000 lbs of Sports Car Killer

This grey Cummins-powered Dodge may not look like a wild custom rig from the outside, but line up next to him and you’ll be in for a surprise! The first hint that this diesel drag racer means business are Hosier slicks front and rear. The owner claims the truck to make 1,013 hp and 1,694 lb-ft of torque on its best run.

Lining up waiting for the tree. Mirrors folded back for aerodynamics.

Such asphalt rumbling power and torque are the result of and Innovative Diesel tune, a Borg Warner S366 turbo, and an aftermarket cam. Engine strengthening mods are limited to Manton pushrods in this Cummins powerplant. Putting all 1000+ hp to the ground, this Dodge retains an all stock driveline apart from a built transmission.

Lining up for a pass down the quarter-mile, no burnout is necessary in this extreme four-wheel drive diesel. Staging next to a white BMW M3 we can all guess how this is going to go at the lights. When the green flashes the M3 propels itself urgently off the line. Un-phased by the white hare, the diesel takes his time to get on the boost before planting his nearly 1700 lb-ft of torque into the track through his four slicks.

On the power, the Dodge hurtles down the track easily surpassing the sports car who clearly is no match for the torque of this coal rolling Cummins. Blasting through the traps, the grey diesel clocks a 10.38 ET at over 130 mph, numbers to be proud of especially for the eternity spent at the lights waiting for his turbo to spool.

Impressive time for a truck with a stock driveline.
