My Uncle Rob and Dad React To Driving 600HP Turbo Yukon! They Both Owned It..Can They Handle It Now?
This particular Yukon XL build is known as "Uncle Rob" on the channel because the former owner was my actual Uncle Rob! BUT...before that...The original owner was my dad! They both put 100,000 miles on this thing as a daily driver work vehicle. My dad hasn't driven it in 13 years! Now it is making 600 something hp at the CRANK (530ish at the wheels) with a Forced Performance 7275 Turbocharger!
Neither one of them has driven anything like this before or have any idea what to expect...I am so pumped to show you guys this video!!

      Hey. Uh. I maybe mistakingly made a reference to your brothers having IRglo channels. I was 1000% that Garrett and Parker were your brothers. You have to admit that's an easy sell ..or buy. Lol. Anyway. My take on this video wasn't a video blog with your dad and uncle. This was a memory with your dad and uncle. Kinda jealous. Made me smile.

  • RebelRacer99

    First off, this is an epic video. Your dad's burnout gets a 10\10 from me. Second that GT500 is beautiful! Third, there's 3 possible causes for the issue with the 2015 Yukon. One is torque converter shudder, which is a common issue on the 2014 and newer GM fullsize trucks. The second is the advanced traction control could be on the fritz. The third possible cause could be bad injectors. Sounds strange, but a customer told me and my boss about his 16 model Yukon shaking like that, and he assumed it was the torque converter issue. The dealer couldn't find anything wrong with the trans and after 3 trips to them he traded it in for something else. They called him later and told him that they replaced the injectors after looking over everything and that had solved the problem.

    By the smile on your dad’s face you should have filled him in earlier in your hot rodding of his vehicle’s he probably would have had fun after he got over it! Uncle Rob ragging on Uncle Rob is priceless!,,It is great to see the family tree of Uncle Rob enjoying the reunion

  • Chris Rosado
    Chris Rosado

    Hands down one of the best videos yet!!!! Best part was when your dad says " I expected it to be really powerful because you built it/done it and I've seen all your videos" that's what proud father who supports his son sounds like! Now lets get your ole man setup right with some power and lets help Uncle Rob fix his transmission or whatever is going on there LOL #MurdaSquad

  • DeeKay617

    I rate dad's 1st burnout a 20 !!! 🤘 As I'm watching this , I'm hoping that my son does this same thing for me ! Looking at how proud your dad was driving that XL , thinking most likely how awesome his son is and how powerful that thing is now ! How rewarding a video for everyone. Great content man

    • DeeKay617

      @Stapleton42 Thank you brother ! Keep up the good work my man !

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man

    Dude, your Dad & Uncle Rob are cool as hell!! 😎 Comment of the video has to be Logan.. what’s been the most difficult part of the build? …‘the Headlight’ 🤣

    • Stapleton42

      Hahaha yes 😂

  • John Adams
    John Adams

    Uncle robs Denali needs a torque converter (that is most definitely shuttering). If it’s an 8 speed trans, it’s a common issue!!

    • Shanice Ervin
      Shanice Ervin

      Well I’m a world class ford tech so I can’t really help anyone here.

    • MuscleCarsDaily

      @Naught Meenaym no. mine shuddered. it was the torque converter needed replaced

    • Jake Castillo
      Jake Castillo

      @Dylan Zrim do it just get an aftermarket converter and they’re good.

    • CountryKindaGuy

      I have a L83 and original 6 speed trans, but I can say they will turn over eventually if you romp on it enough. Even stock Silverado’s were going in for rebuilds 2014+

    • Typical PC Tech

      @Naught Meenaym fluid change is worth a try for sure a cheaper route!

    Your dad and uncle Rob are two very cool guys IMHO. And Logan saying the headlight was the hardest part of the turbo swap had me laughing out loud for real.

    Logan, you literally made me lol when he asked what the hardest part of turboing it was and u said without zero hesitation "the headlight"! Weve all been there with these GM's lol just be thankful they arent aftermarket lights

    • thenaaks

      @Tirbo Max me too! She struggled so hard with that stupid headlight, and remembers it. She's a champ!

    Your dad's burnout was a solid 8.5. Call it a 9 just for "beginner" status. Uncle Rob is so gangster just chillin' with one hand on the wheel and the arm on the console as if he did that every day. Love it! If they're really down, you should definitely turbo their rides too!

  • 413xxx86

    First burnout, 7.5. Epic content with your dad and uncle!!! Much respect Mitch!!!

  • ninja4187

    For a first time burnout, not recking it or messing up in anyway, for the way he handled when the rear end slid out and for those 30+FT black lines.. I have to give your dad a 10! :-)

  • Jarred Miller
    Jarred Miller

    Definitely a 8.5 for a first burnout I’ve never even had the balls to give it the sauce like that yet.. I love how you can just beat on this thing still realible as hell also a guy in my town has international travel all there cool rigs :) this video is great

    Defiantly a torque converter shutter. Might be under warranty depending on year

    • Devin Olson
      Devin Olson

      I agree with this 100% I know the 24v Cummins had a thing with alternator voltage fluctuating causes bad torque converter lockup. Maybe same thing here?

    • Ryze Of Rengar
      Ryze Of Rengar

      @Cosmo Baller I'm pretty sure it's an issue with the converters that come with 6l80. I'm not sure about 4l60/80. I haven't heard of those doing the same thing

    • Cosmo Baller
      Cosmo Baller

      @Ryze Of Rengar Can you describe what it does at different speeds? I have an 04 4x4 and have replaced basically everything on the truck except for the converter

    • Ryze Of Rengar
      Ryze Of Rengar

      That's what I was thinking. I have a 15 Silverado and went through the same thing.

    Awesome reactions from both of them! Could that Denali have traction control that causes that shutter?

Get that rig over to Yello Belly Peoples' Track ASAP so you can clean some house there!

  • Jared Oaks

    That Escalade has either the 6l80 or the 8l90 transmission. It looks like a classic case of torque converter shudder under acceleration. Big time issue with those two trans. You can try a fluid change but most likely the front pump and converter are junk

    • Stapleton42

      I don’t think that’s what it is. It drives fine everywhere but first gear

    Uncle Rob is a boss driving uncle Rob. These family videos make me smile and laugh more than I have in a long time. I absolutely love their reactions and joy from something so simple as a turbo tank. Can't get over the 1 handed chill while the tires are breaking lose, lifting and back in it for a 2/3 chirp. Epic uncle Rob!

  • Graeme Bridge

    That was epic. Uncle robs driving style was almost horizontal 🤣 and your dads burnout game is strong. One of your best uploads man 🤘

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man I think it is too 😂


    Uncle Rob was floored by Uncle Rob when he floored it🤘 Pretty cool watching you, your dad, and your uncle Rob all together grinning like little kids. I think it would be awesome if you could upgrade your uncle Rob‘s jacked up transmission 😵 give it some turbos without him knowing. Logan’s gonna be stomping on another snake?😜 looking forward to this one

    Good morning Mitchell! It's been a while for me. I so enjoyed the look on uncle Rob's face when he lit it up! I would SO love to see him drive the Escalde. You can tell he respects it, but he ain't afraid of it. Wonderful video with your Dad and uncle Rob. Thank you for bringing us along for the ride. 😊


    The thin grin on both your faces while doing a burnout was priceless. Great moment!
