This week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday feature takes a look at one wicked fast twin turbocharged Dodge Dakota R/T. We don’t know all that much about this truck shy of the fact that it is powered by a “built” 5.9L Magnum V8 with a twin turbocharger setup that the person who posted the video claims allowed this Dakota to trap 121 miles per hour in the quarter mile. No elapsed time was offered but with a trap of 121 – it had to be a pretty impressive run down the drag strip.
This video sadly doesn’t have any actual racing videos but we do get to see this Dodge Dakotas underhood setup with the sharp looking twin turbo setup as well as some standing fly-bys, a couple rolling fly-bys and one nasty, smokey burnout. When you watch this video of the black twin turbo Dodge Dakota R/T, make sure to turn up your speakers because the sound of the boosted Magnum V8 is half of the fun of this clip. The combination of the built Mopar 360, the roaring exhaust and the whistle of the two turbochargers is a real thing of beauty.
