Default Lingenfelters latest project

almost 100 hp and 100 lb ft of torque added to the L83 5.3. I have no idea what it costs.

It's still a turd. If I want a supercharged fast truck, it's going to be a Lightning. I like my Silverado, but it's not a hot rod.

425 lb ft of torque is not a turd.

Ford Lightnings arent "fast".......In fact their 1/4 mile time is less than a half second faster than the Lingenfelter Silverado so I suppose a Lightning is a turd too.

I didnt post this because I think the Silverado is a hot rod. I do think its cool they were able to get that much HP and torque out of it though.

Meh, Lingenfelter is not a stock vehicle. You're comparing it against a vehicle straight off the showroom floor. Probably a more accurate comparison would be the Lingenfelter vs. a Kenne Bell supercharged Lightning, otherwise stock. The Silverado loses every time.

My buddy's family had several Lightnings when we were in high school. I beg to differ on the fast part. 180mph in a truck is fast, ever had tunnel vision? I have and it was in a Lightning.

I definitely think it's cool though, just if I wanted a fast truck to hot rod it would be a Lightning.

Where in anything did I post did I say it was?

The Lightning is SUPERCHARGED and a stock Silverado isnt so the Lingenfelter Silverado and Lightning is a very valid comparison.

Im calling on the 180mph in a stock Lightning. Thats 40 mph faster than what the test speeds were for those trucks

I didn't say it was stock. It was in a built motor, 750hp Lightning. It happened. I also did 160mph in my SVT Contour.

That was some VERY pertinent information you chose to leave out I guess.

I did 140 in my mom's car in high school. It was just an old fart car, a 96' impala ss.

There is a 2012 crew z-71 on the ford dealership lot here that has a supercharger on it. Been sitting there for 6 months.

FWIW, I dont consider anything that comes out of the SVT department as "stock". Yeah, sure you can buy it off a Ford showroom floor but you can also buy a Saleen off a Ford showroom floor. Far from "stock" IMO.

SVT is to Ford what Lingenfelter is to GM.
