VP FEVER

A RESTORED AND REBORN 550HP ’01 DODGE

You can’t buy trucks like this anymore, but if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool second-gen fan, you can certainly do your best to preserve one, restore it, or even transform it into the ride of your dreams. With a preference for the ’94-’02 body style, a love of the VP44, and a background in truck pulling, Michael Asher recently treated his garage-kept ’01 quad cab to a cab-on resto and enough go-fast parts to make a cool 550 rwhp. His reason for breathing new life into the near-300,000-mile Dodge was both simple and honest.

Despite the 24-valve Cummins in Michael Asher’s ’01 Dodge being pulled and resealed by the truck’s previous owner, all the performance-related work on the engine has been done in recent years. Thanks to the help of nearby E&M Repair and Fabrication, the cylinder head was pulled, decked, and fitted with Haisley Machine 90-pound valve springs prior to being reinstalled using H11 head studs. To date, the 285,000-mile factory bottom end has gone untouched. AE Concepts did all of the under hood powder coating, along with the control arms, traction bars, coil springs, and shift stalk.
