The 2014 Silverado has the same direct injected architecture as the LT1 engine in the new C7 Corvette. Prototype camshafts for both truck and Corvette are already on hand. Lingenfelter has started cylinder head port flow development work and CNC programs for both cylinder head types, which will be completed soon.
