The Chevrolet SS, when it was still in production, was the sensible choice in the bowtie brand’s performance portfolio.
With a practical four-door body, a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 that isn’t too powerful and standard magnetic ride control, the Chevrolet SS is the ideal car for someone who loves the Corvette and Camaro but can’t get away with owning a two-door car due to the size of their family or some other lifestyle choice.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has now gone about making the Chevrolet SS a little less sensible, though, developing a 700 hp supercharged upgrade kit for the sedan. The company recently stuck one of its supercharged Chevrolet SS customer cars on the dyno, where it made 600 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque at the wheels – certainly enough to have it running with Dodge Charger Hellcats.
It’s not exactly clear what this upgrade kit includes, with Lingenfelter only listing a 650 hp upgrade kit on their site, although we can confirm that it adds a Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger to the LS3 engine.
The 650 hp kit, which is probably fairly close to the 700 hp kit showcased here by Lingenfelter, also includes CNC ported Lingenfelter cylinder heads, a Lingenfelter GT9 camshaft, a fuel pump voltage booster and the necessary dyno tuning. The company also offers a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty with the package, along with a certificate authenticating its status as a true Lingenfelter-tuned product.
