SVE Launches Supercharged 2023 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado22
Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has launched the new-for-2023 supercharged Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado pickups, offering upwards of 800 horsepower for hauling more than just cargo.
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.

Horsepower is Great! However, Yenko tape stripes mean nothing.
Why is this being produced if EV is the big thing…makes no sense.
EV is a fraud
Just like Covid..to get rid of OG
The Silverado EV is still better since electric motors has instantaneous torque at zero RPM while a supercharged engine needs several seconds to spool up to make torque. Besides, the engine needs the transmission to shift gears to gain speed. The EV never shifts gears so it is always faster even with lesser HP in a drag race.
I bet this one sounds better though
@ GM Fan
That EV won’t be able to tow more than 80 miles before you have to stop and wait 3-4 hours for a full charge!! Plus, try finding places to charge it. When I head out to the Hills in South Dakota to go Side by siding, it would have taken me 1 1/2 days to get out there!!! What a joke!!!
That supercharged 5.3L/6.2L will go around 250-300 miles on a tank and take less than 5 minutes to fill, along with an intoxicating aftermarket exhaust note!!!
NO thank you on an over-priced, over-weight, EV truck!
I wish GM would wake up and make an SS model truck with an LT4 from the Escalade. Price it around $50k for a reg. cab, $60K for a crew cab. Then offer packages to add to it, if you want more options.
makes a lot of sense with everything you said .
Regular cabs are a dying breed. Trucks are the new wave minivan these days.
Tell us you know nothing about about engines without telling us you know nothing about engines…. superchargers are not turbos they don’t have a lag time to build boost. Secondly your comparison of electric motors not shifting to that of shifting of a transmission is irrelevant due to high performance built transmission that will be in the truck. Let alone the biggest factor that this 800hp monster has an advantage of is weight. It weighs thousands of pounds less than that ev silverado and more horsepower. That silverado ev you praise will get annihilated at the drag strip.
Question, regarding the ,’23 Silverado crew cab std bed. The bed a little longer and I need to know if the added length is just sheet metal at the end or did they also move the axle back(longer wheel base). It makes a difference with a 5th wheel hitch if I need a slider or not to clear the cab in a tight turn. Nobody seems to know….
Are there any transmission modifications done to handle this extra horsepower or are they confident the stocker will hold up?
michael ehrenberger… Your point being? Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, almost every company is having trouble supplying cars to people… Does that mean we should stop showing things to people? Wait hold everything people are waiting for their 2022 Trucks… Don’t build any or show any new 2023 cars or trucks. It’s a bad time to order a new vehicle between the after affects of COVID and nobody wants to work anymore I mean it really came together… People should know abs research that now is not the best time to purchase a new car just read the news it’s simple but don’t stop showing us new things.
5″ lowering springs in rear? Leaf springs must be flat? Not a flip kit in rear?
I think GM should worry about getting customers their 2022 trucks with all the options in them and not having to go back to get them retrofit later, rather than some high-hores powered truck ! hell, some people are still waiting for the 2022 model they ordered.
They should put kind of power into there ZR2. Dodge is sitting at 707, Ford is going to be sitting at 7ish. LT5 swap or build the LT4.
Where can we just get the motor/tranny setup? I have a completely stock 1972 K5 Blazer I’d love to put it in!
Now you just need to put this set up in the Silverado zr2 and you have a truck work buying.
Gonna buy me the 6.2L and put a 6″ lift on it w/ Bigger Meaty tires and rims and run over the Girly EV . Gas power will never die.
