These days, it seems like four-figure output numbers are the standard when it comes to modified performance machines. But what happens when that modded performance machine just so happens to be a lifted Chevy Silverado? Well, in that case, you end up with the pickup featured in the following video.
Coming to us from Late Model Racecraft, this video is about 21-and-a-half minutes long, and includes a walkaround, an overview of the onboard goodies, and a demonstration of what it’s like to drive on the street, plus a little burnout action for good measure.
After a quick intro, the video dives under the hood, where we find a 427 V8 from the folks at Texas Speed. The goal was to create a “monster” Chevy Silverado that was still street-friendly enough to drive every day, and as such, the 427 was topped by a Whipple supercharger that was upgraded with a 10-rib belt setup. The engine is tuned to run on 91 octane, while a second tune was added for higher boost levels. An Alkycontrol methanol kit was also installed to keep inlet air temps down. Punch the throttle, and the setup delivers big boost on demand, making it that much more exciting to drive.
The eight-speed automatic transmission was fully built to handle all the power, while 4.10 gears were installed out back. Throw it all into a big, burly truck with aftermarket suspension, and you get one wild ride. The lift is courtesy of a Cognito Motorsport suspension kit, while Wilwood brakes help to haul it down. Axe wheels sit in the corners. The interior was enhanced as well, and now boasts a full audio upgrade. There’s also a carbon fiber steering wheel and new seats to boot. Some BodyGuard bumpers round out the exterior.
