No matter how hard you try, unless you build a full (non smog-legal) motor for your mini-truck, you're going to be limited as to just how much power you can put to the ground.
And because most of the feeling of available horsepower power is felt through the seat of the pants (not everyone drags a full dyno setup around with them), anything that gives you an instant sense of more rapid acceleration equates to more power.
Years ago, we installed a lightweight flywheel and a high-performance clutch in an extra cab mini we had. When we went head-to-head with a same year but standard-cab Toyota with its bed off and won, we knew something wonderful had happened with the installation of those parts.
Some 10 years later, we have the opportunity to show you just what it takes to smoke unknowing pickups with very little effort. Follow along to find out how.
