Custom C10 Truck with a Subaru STI Powertrain

Justin Tanner is building a unique truck at his company Tanner’s Customs & Collision in Kansas, Missouri. It starts with a Chevy C10 cab and carbon fiber front sitting on a custom tube chassis with 2014 Subaru STI front and rear subframes. It also features a 2016+ Subaru steering rack, HKS adjustable coilovers, and Rolloface brakes. The powertrain will consist of a IAG Performance Stage 4 2.5 L Subaru flat-four mated to a 2016 STI transmission and differential.

    1. Uhm…..Why?
      No matter how you build the C-10 it will still be a lot heavier than an Impreza and will be underpowered.

      Tanner is an amazing fabricator though.
      👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

      1. Umm, did you even read the article?

        IAG stage 4 block is rated at 1000+ hp
        Curb weight of a 2016 STI = 3400 lbs

        I doubt this truck weighs much more than that, if it does at all.

        It sounds like it’s going to be a beast.

      2. There’s a lot of stuff I love that makes no sense. Looks ok at a Jackson Pollack painting. They sell for tens of millions, but it’s just paint randomly dripped onto a giant canvas. The whole overrides the how and why.

        This isn’t in that league, by far, financially, but it’s beautiful work and the complete re-engineering will provide tons of power and great performance.

  1. I love the C10 Chassis and I own a WRX. This is rhe perfect way to have the best of both worlds and get cheap insurance. I hope he makes some video because an AWD C10 is gonna handle like a go cart.

  2. Last comment said would be heavier and under-powered Possibly? but that engine is capable of 600 to 1000 hp so depending what is done to it. and heavier? don’t think so with a tube frame and carbon fiber bodywork . I would say it would be lighter. Now aero I believe would be worse. Handling should be better. With the weight more in the center and much lower . A very interesting project
