The race track isn’t always the natural habitat for the Chevy Silverado, especially if it’s a lifted one on 33-inch all-terrain, meaty tires. However, in a recent episode of AmericanTrucks’“The Haul”, Adam Maqboul adds an exhaust, cold-air intake and tune to his 2016 Silverado LT, dynos it, and then takes it to the track to see what it will do.
Adam’s goal was not to set out to set or break any race records, he just wanted to see how some basic modifications could change the sound and drivability of his Silverado. See how he does in the quarter-mile, and learn more about it in the official release below.
How Fast is a Tuned & Lifted Silverado?
Tuned Silverado Takes on the Drag Strip | The Haul
In this episode of AmericanTrucks’ (AT) “The Haul”, Adam Maqboul installs a trio of bolt-on modifications to his 2016 Silverado LT equipped with 33” all-terrain tires and 6” lift before taking it to the drag strip. While not trying to set any records, the purpose of this video is to see what kind of power and sound his 5.3L V-8 can produce with just a cold-air intake, tune and catback exhaust.
Adam takes you through his list of bolt-ons, explaining why they were selected, before applying a tune to maximize performance and ensure that his new mods make every bit of power possible. After that, Adam puts his Silverado on AT’s in-house dynamometer to see the results before taking it down the quarter-mile at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, PA.
