    Thinking about building the ultimate sleeper

    In my home town area there are hundreds of people who on Weekends cruise their vehicles and run on the streets. Most are very lame ricer builds and crapstangs. Very few will run faster than 14s. I have been thinking about an idea for a long time now. Basically an ugly build that looks completely stock. Even when you open the hood 99% of people won't know what's going on underneath.

    NBS RCSB 4x4 GM truck 4.8/5.3. $4000
    6.0/80e $1800 complete with factor engine cover
    Cam/valvetrain rebuild $1200
    Stall$1000
    Mild trans rebuild $500
    AWD swap $1200
    200 shot of Spray via tapped throttlebody spacer $800
    Fuel upgrades $1000
    Rear locker/gears $1000
    Stock 16s widened to accommodate slightly wider rear tires. $300
    Drag radials on all 4 tires $1000

    My idea is to hustle for a little cash. Everything will be really well hidden and appear very stock. Even the cam/tune/exhaust will be setup to appear tame/quiet at idle. The hope is to use a newer truck to run similar to the farm truck. I don't expect it to be a money maker, but just something I can have some fun with and surprise some people. I would expect mid 12s on the spray and low 13s NA, but something that on the street will fly under the radar while smoking some ricers and wannabes. The stance paint wheels body work headlights and even the interior will look very stock everything aftermarket will be hidden as well as possible. All GO and zero show. Thoughts?

    Widened in order to get more traction on the street on a stock suspension.
    Tapped spacer for the sleeper effect. Most people will see and hear yeah its got a throttle body spacer and pay it less attention than an actual plate nitrous kit.

    Seems like a great idea, but a fast V8 S10 raises more suspicion than a Silverado that comes with a V8 factory. Also people know that a V8 s10 can be fast, but V8 Silverados are a dime a dozen around here.

    You said widen rear wheels... why widen the rears on an awd? You arent thinking.

    I am assuming even with AWD I will most likely struggle with traction on the street. Also I figure most drag radials won't fit a stock width wheel.
