Connective-based tuning company Callaway Cars has released a video showing its new supercharged Silverado Signature Edition performing acceleration tests on an empty country road.
The supercharged Silverado Signature Edition, for those who don’t know, is based on the Chevy Silverado 1500 with the available 6.2L L87 V8 engine. Callaway then takes the stock motor and installs an Eaton TVS R2650 supercharger, a revised intake system and its own Callaway-designed “Triple Cooled” intercooler setup. These upgrades boost the output of the 6.2L L87 V8 engine to an SAE-certified 602 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 560 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm. For reference, a stock Chevy Silverado equipped with the 6.2L L87 V8 engine produces 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
That big bump in power translates into impressive on-paper performance for the pickup. Callaway’s internal testing indicates the supercharged Silverado Signature Edition will accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds at 113 mph.
A previous performance test of the stock Silverado 1500 with the 6.2L V8 conducted by a third-party publication clocked it at 5.4 seconds from zero to 60 mph. The fastest quarter-mile time the publication could manage with the truck, meanwhile, was 13.9 seconds at 100 mph. That means Callaway’s upgrade package helps the truck accelerate from zero to 60 mph a full second faster than stock and trims its quarter-mile pass time by nearly a second and a half.
In addition to the performance upgrades, Callaway also equips all Silverado Signature Edition trucks with a full Callaway exhaust with quad tips, giving it a mean-sounding exhaust note to go with its newly upgraded motor. A carbon grille, chrome Callaway exterior badging, Alcantara interior trim and anthracite or satin black Callaway alloy wheels complete the package.
