PaxPower-tweaked Silverado rivals the Ford F-150 Raptor
Texan tuner PaxPower has devised three power boosts for the 6.2-liter, eight-cylinder engine of the Chevrolet Silverado. Care for a closer look?
The Stage I kit includes fender flares, a different hood cover with an air intake, robust 35-inch Toyo R/T tires, sports-grade rear axle suspension and coilovers for the front axle. Wrapping up the list is a light exhaust system upgrade alongside an ECU tune that lifts the output to 449 horsepower (335 kilowatts) and 643 Newton-meters (474 pound-feet) of torque.
The Stage II adds new brake pipes, steering rods, more suspension travel, a custom-made hood, even larger fender flares, 35-inch tires and 152 mm (5.93 inches) of added wheel span. The engine upgrade is identical to the abovementioned variant. Outfitted like this, the truck needs 5.7 seconds to sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph).
At the pinnacle of things is the Stage III, which throws in 76 mm (3 inches) of ground clearance, aggressively styled bumpers with reinforcements, 37-inch tires, LED lights built into the front grille, stiffer springs, and sportier overall suspension.
The entry-level PaxPower kit costs U.S. $15,000. Going for the middle ground will set you back $25,000, and the ultimate Silverado takes $35,000 in upgrades.
