Follow our 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 6.2L L87 Procharger Project Truck. We start off with a brand new 2021 Chevrolet 1500 6.2L L87 V8 (LT1 with longer stroke) and a silky smooth 10 Speed Allison Transmission. You can also keep up to the newest updates via our Facebook Page
With only 263k’s on the clock we ramped it to see what it runs stock – 281RWHP out of the 6.2L L87 V8 1500 Chev Silverado. To be fair she would be pretty tight still, so the numbers will only increase from here. You can check out our dyno results HERE
Power, Torque and Skids aside, it’s so much nicer to drive than the 2018 2500HD. 10 Speed trans is sweet, but holding a good run on the dyno is tricky (at best)
Oddly the interior is way roomier than the 2500, tray space is sacrificed for this but I’m cool with that. It’s much better appointed than the 2500 and the techy stuff us guys love is there in droves. Seriously, you need to read the manual for this truck – take it into the toilet with you, when you read it you’ll find out all the cool shit the truck can do.
Braked towing capacity for this beast is 4500kg compared with the Midnight Edition 2500HD’s 3500kg which doesn’t make sense but is a good thing.
Next week we start to get in the performance parts – we’ll keep you up to date.
Wheels And Tire Upgrade
Our new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 kicks off the modifying journey with a new set of 12×9 KMC MESA’s with 0mm offset and a set of the awesome looking and remarkably quiet Nitto Ridge Grapplers.
Just enough poke without being ridiculously offensive to the authorities, an not needed flared guards. It totally changes the look of the truck and actually makes the chrome bearable.
I think a big Brembo brake package behind those wheels will make it pop a bit more
