Let’s jump straight to the good stuff. The heart of the 2023 supercharged Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado is a supercharged powerplant, with Specialty Vehicle Engineering throwing boost at the 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine and the 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine to yield 700 horsepower and 800 horsepower, respectively. For reference, the 5.3L V8 L84 is rated at 355 horsepower in atmospheric trim, while the 6.2L V8 L87 is rated at 420 horsepower in atmospheric trim.
Making those power numbers a reality is a long list of performance parts, including a blueprinted block, a race-spec and computer-balanced rotating assembly with a forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft, forged pistons, and upgraded heads. The beefy engine upgrades are topped by SVE’s high-output supercharger system, with a custom stainless steel exhaust providing the fun noises.
Both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are offered to put the power down. Complementary performance upgrades include Yenko-badged six-piston front brakes, Nitto rubber, a large-diameter rear sway bar, and heavy-duty traction bars. A sport suspension system with 2-inch lowering springs in front and 5-inch lowering springs in the rear (paired with Fox shocks) is also offered.
The good stuff continues with a number of exterior upgrades declaring the 2023 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado’s high-performance status, including a new composite hood insert, Yenko-branded grille and fender badging, power-level tailgate badging, and of course, a Yenko/SC side stripe. Inside, you’ll find unique badging with the vehicle build number, embroidered floormats, and embroidered headrests, as well as branded doorsills to match.
Several other optional upgrades are also on the table, with body mods and an interior leather package available.
The Yenko/SC build is available for 2023 Chevy Silverado LT, LTZ, RST, and High Country trim levels, including Crew Cab or Double Cab body styles with either a short bed or standard bed in back. Interested customers can get their 2023 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado from GM dealers around the nation. Production is limited at 50 units apiece for 700-horsepower and 800-horsepower variants.
