Spent my weekends in Rockford, IL during high school. The man who built the motor for the Cyclone/Typhoon was a Rockford native. He had at least 20 of the damn things at his shop. I will never forget going to the dragstrip and watching his 1,100hp Cyclone run a 9.8 in the quarter mile, with all four wheels never hooking up throughout the run. The thing basically hydroplaned down the track. Little known to outsiders, but the transmission in the those trucks was so aggressive that it would basically eat itself in about 30k miles, even with normal driving. For me, that was their true downfall.

Good stuff Nolan and company. I'm 52. Remember all these trucks. For the money back in the 90s, a great deal, was the 90-94? Dodge Dakota shortbox 2 wheel drives with a 318. A little tweaking and it would smoke the unwary. Wanna drift? Happened daily. Fun!

My dad has a Warlock in his garage. I have seen it move once, when we pushed it into the garage after sitting outside next to the garage for more than 20 years. It dont start, the paint is faded and scratched to hell, has some small dents, windshield is smashed. Interior is just as bad. 1 day it will drive again

I had a 2003 Dakota R/T in Viper blue. I sold it in 2006, because I had to drive to South Carolina to pick my future wife up from boot camp. I was to poor to afford the gas it would have required to drive the "race truck" on that round trip so I sold it and bought a sensible SUV. I regret selling it, every day. I did marry that girl, and we are still together so I guess it's not a complete shit show.

Lil red express truck was interesting, I thought the truck was sold with all the right kit except the intake and carb which was a 2 Barrel downdraft. This combo allowed dodge to meet tough CAFE standards and the 4Barrel was a sneaky Dealer installed tidbit supplied by Chrysler with a wink wink nudge nudge by the salesman to close the sale. Chrysler owned Lamborgini at the time and was the driving force behind the " Rambo Lambo " why the Italian military passed on it is a mystery.c

The best era for trucks was when all trucks had fully boxed ladder frames, a solid rear axel, could pull stumps out of the ground, and they didn't cost as much as a house. Sadly that era is gone and may never return. I'm all for people building fast, 2WD racing trucks or pickups built only for mall-terrain if that's what they want, but those are not the best eras for trucks.

The drop in performance during the early 70s was due to more than restrictive cats. Another major factor was dropping the compression ratio in the engines. Having a high c.r increased Nitrous oxide emissions (NOx). It was common for late 60s engines to have a c.r of 10-11:1 then dropped to like 8:1 in the 70s and 80s, these era of engines are often called ‘smoggers’. Ironically c.r is a critical factor in mileage, so the engines actually consumed more fuel during the smogger era relative to their predecessors.

The 1st generation F150 Lightning actually had 340 ft lbs of torque. 240 ft lbs would of been extremely low for a 5.8L V8, even for the 80s and 90s.

Ford won this easy. The Super Slow Chevy would get spanked by a short bed 350 ci two wheel drive Chevy truck. The lightning with a small block would eat the POS 454 SS. Most Often Passed At Races mopar didn't have anything competitive. There you go the truth and best summary of this war.

GM won the war. None of these trucks stock could touch the Syclone/Typhoon. I'd love to build a clone of one. But I already have a 92 Dakota 2wd with the 318. That'd be pretty neat with a turbo huh?

I remember GM giving our dealership no choice. We had to accept a syclone. Bitch took forever to sell. Then the ‘90 454SS sold well, but owners were pissed when they discovered the new 1991’s had a four speed automatic. We hotrodded a few, but they still weren’t that fast.

Worked at a car dealership in the early 90's. A white Shelby Dakota showed up on the lot and I was told to use it to run some errands... Wow! I wanted to buy THAT one. All that torque in a little lightweight truck, with what felt like a Gil Younger shift kit that firmly "banged" into gear like a drag car, also with a sweet handling package, you could drift that truck at will, it was a BLAST to drive! They sold it several times, customers kept bringing it back because it scared them! Then an SS 454 truck showed up on the lot and I had to use it to run an errand... What a SNORE. I couldn't believe it when I punched the gas pedal on that pig. I was expecting something better than the Dakota, but it was just a big, fat, bad handling, gas guzzling disappointment. The ONLY thing that ever landed on the lot was possibly more fun to drive than the Shelby Dakota was a 300 HP, twin turbo Stealth RT. Other honorable mentions go to a gutted, short wheelbase turbo Caravan that could have been a drag car, and a Chevy Beretta GTZ. We never did get a Viper at that lot, but if we had, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have let drive it, since I was wasn't rich enough to buy it if I wrecked it, plus I was too young at the time, and burnouts were impossible for my younger self to resist & I think they knew that.
