Watch This Compound-Turbo Cummins 1935 International Run 11s
Only going by the name of Steve, this Orlando-area street racer built a quick 1935 International pickup. Rather than a traditional V8 swap, Steve threw in a 12-valve Cummins turbodiesel. Breathing through the big six-cylinder is aided by a Hamilton cylinder head that’s directing flow from a compound-turbocharger setup. A 63mm BorgWarner turbo sits on the manifold and feeds pressurized air into a larger 80mm billet-wheel BorgWarner turbo before sending 85 to 90 psi into the diesel Cummins.
The 1953 International then storms down the Orlando Speed World Dragway on a stout 11.44 at 122.56-mph run—not bad for a relatively heavy, 3,360-pound hot rod.
