Well, this dude did.

And it rips.

As the ever-excellent EngineSwapDepot reports, this Kia has a 6.0 liter LS out of a heavy duty Silverado making 385 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels with a GM automatic transmission and a Jeep transfer case.

It is a bit of a Frankenstein’s monster, but it’s indistinguishable from any other suburban commuter. That is, if you don’t notice the side pipes.

What a beast.
