2011 Chevy Silverado Duramax 6.6L
Rich Benoit is a disruptor. “The 37-year-old father of three doesn’t just drive a Tesla. He drives a Model S built with his own two hands—a sleek P85+ Frankensteinian monster cobbled together from salvaged cars inside a drafty two-bay garage underneath his Salem, Massachusetts, home. A career IT expert, Benoit has no formal training in auto repair or electrical engineering,” says Car & Driver.
But there are dozens of YouTubers making crazy builds, how is Rich any different? He’s genuine and his builds are the stuff of legend. While everyone is rushing to electrify their cars and trucks, Rich has already been there and done that. He’s been on Tesla’s sh** list for some time. So, he’s gone another direction. He recently LS-swapped a Tesla. Yes, he dropped an internal combustion engine into a Tesla.
But Rich isn’t a one-trick pony. He recently picked up a 2011 Chevy Silverado powered by a 6.6L Duramax. It was mildly tuned with an upgraded turbo. But Rich being Rich, isn’t going to leave it as is. No, he’s going to drag race it. That means massive upgrades are in his future, including a Banks intercooler and boost tubes along with multiple iDashes to monitor the beast. None of his vehicles are pavement princesses. So, subscribe to the channel to watch Rich put his Banks equipment to the test. You’ll thank us.
