    2008 GMC Sierra Typhoon

    GM is willing to step into the ring, this time with a good punch.

    Powered by the LS7, offered with either a 6 speed auto or 6 speed manual.

    But by no means towing and hauling capacities are mediocre.

    Carbon fiber abounds in the interior as much as you want, you can choose which panels you want made out of REAL Carbon Fiber.

    Available in single and extended cab.

    Still need to polish some rough edges though. But it pretty much gives you the idea.

    I love the carbon fiber dash trim. Exterior looks pretty badass too.

    Nice work.

    I think the L92 V8 with a hotter cam and some work on the exhaust ports....will produce more than enough power.

    I don't think the expensive ls7 needs to be put there. JMO

    The guys over at ls1tech site are throwing down 500 rear wheel hp in 414 cubic inch mild cam LS92 blocks with l92 heads that were mildly ported on exhaust side.

    They are using a split cam and dual valve springs...

    the things a beast.

    Slight update.

    Grill top was lowered to match the headlamp line, rear bumper was also blacked out and the front headlamps were darkened.



    And I went a little looney on the Carbon Fiber interior thing

    Looks good.

    actually, i was thinking, wouldnt the typhoon be based off the canyon? wasnt it originally the s-15 modified? that would be cool to see a canyon typhoon. just wondering. its still a good job though.

    Actually if you want it to stay true to its heritage it should be called the Syclone. The SUV version would be the Typhoon.

    Cool photoshop!
