Some people are just always able to get what they want, whether it’s in business, relationships or hobbies. Some of these guys are so good at it that they don’t even want you to know their last name. There’s this guy we’ve heard about that goes by the moniker “Junior” and that’s it. We don’t know his last name and the legend is that you don’t need to know it either.
Well, Junior is pretty successful in getting what he wants and he happens to like big-horsepower diesel pickups. He has had Rebel Off Road in Laguna Hills, California, build him some off-road vehicles in the past and everything turned out great so when it came time to build up this 2007.5 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, Rebel got the nod.
When all was said and done, Junior wasn’t completely sold on the engine. It just didn’t have the muscle he wanted. So he bought a Duramax engine from Pacific Performance Engineering that was previously used in a record-breaking land speed run on the El Mirage dry lakebed in California. That engine put out more than 1,000 horsepower to the wheels with a dual-stage Nitrous Express (NX) nitrous setup and propelled the truck it was powering to 141.998 mph… with a trailer attached. Who buys an engine like that for their truck? Guys like Junior.
