Canadians Matt Bendoritis and Stephen Grundke of Khaos Kustoms have put together a simple yet very effective truck with Ruby 3.0. They skipped the bling and sparkle and went right to hard parts that have been proven to work
Starting with a solid Hamilton 6.7 block, a stock crank that swings the Carrillo rods and a Colt camshaft opening and closing the valves they have a stable foundation to build serious HP. The engine is forced fed with 2 Borg Warner turbochargers and injected by Flux Diesel 300% Apex Injectors. Matts truck regularly produces 1650HP on Diesel fuel and over 2030HP using nitrous.
Matt has named the truck Ruby 3.0 after his previously successful truck named Ruby 1.0. A daily driven street truck that is highly competitive in Alberta and has won a wall full of trophies for highest hp dyno events and drag races.
We wish Matt and Stephen the best of luck in the coming years and know there will be many more trophies and wins.
