Default [VR] Whipple Silverado makes corvette power!



Who doesn’t enjoy a daily drivable pickup truck that makes as much power as a new Z06 Corvette? Once again we had the pleasure of modifying another Chevrolet Silverado for one of our Georgia customers who had a goal of building the ultimate daily driver. The truck arrived to us from about 5 hours away in Savannah, GA with a Whipple Supercharger system already installed and as well as a full catback exhaust. This combination baselined at 450rwhp/460rwtq when it arrived, however our customer was on the hunt for not only more power, but a healthy lope at idle as well to give the truck more attitude on the street. We opted for a daily-driver friendly combination that would work great with 93 octane pump gas at a safe boost level. For this round of modifications we chose the following:


• Whipple 3.75” Supercharger Pulley
• Gates Supercharger Belt
• Vengeance Racing Cam Kit Plus (Custom Grind for 5.3L)
• Kooks Longtube Header System with “Green” Catted Y Pipe

GM Corvette LT1 Injectors
• Circle D Specialties 6L80E Torque Converter
• Vengeance Racing Transmission Cooler Kit and Thermostat Delete























The end result was an impressive 543rwhp and 582rwtq at just 9.5psi on boost and nearly 100* temperatures on the dyno! This is a killer street truck with a combination focusing not only on performance but also on drivability and reliability needed for a daily driver. We saw no more than 155* trans temperatures during our testing as well by deleting the thermostat and running our additional auxiliary cooler kit.

Nice!!!! Would love to see a similar combo on a 6.2L/8 speed (or 10 speed) Denali, Sierra, Silverado or Escalade with that drivetrain!!!! Would probably see over 600rwhp and 650rwtq???
