Turbo GMC Canyon Paid For by Flipping Burgers


Kid flips his grandfather's unexciting truck into something, well, exciting.

Typically when you think of the old GMC Canyon, not much really comes to mind. It was a decent mid-size truck, but it was never anything stellar. It came with a five-cylinder engine and had decent styling, but a Toyota Tacoma was still the better choice. But as Matt Ochoa has proven, dropping in a turbocharger along with many other mods, an old Canyon can be turned into one fantastic sports pickup.

It’s got 335 hp and 340 lb-ft of torque, an output ideal for drag racing. If you're thinking there's no way you could afford to do this to your own car, think again. The funding for this labor of love came from flipping burgers.
