Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been making waves lately with the announcement of their 450 horsepower supercharged V6 package that is compatible with everything from the Cadillac ATS to the Chevrolet Colorado. However, the 2019 SEMA Show is in just a few days, and the tuning company plans on bringing the house with pro touring builds, powerhouse pickup trucks, and even herculean engines. A photo gallery is provided at the bottom of the story.
The teaser photos released so far depict a rather unassuming C2 Corvette build with the hood up. But the angle is such that nobody can see what’s powering the vintage Corvette from the photo. It could be some sort of special crate V8 engine, which was also teased by Lingenfelter. Following that we see a high-flow air intake teased through the hood slats of a C7 Corvette, which wears a special star-studded livery. There won’t be any C8 Corvettes on the SEMA Show floor on display from any aftermarket company.
Additionally, Lingenfelter plans on bring two of its Chevrolet Colorado ZR2-L builds for the 2019 SEMA Show. One will be on display at the performance company’s booth, while the other can be found at the Edelbrock booth, which is the company that supplies the supercharger for the blown V6 program.
Another teaser depicts some kind of General Grabber M/T tire that surrounds a blacked-out beadlock wheel. The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2-L pickup trucks from Lingenfelter do not feature either of these things – we’ve seen them up close to know for sure. This could only mean that this wheel and tire combination belongs to a forthcoming Lingenfelter Performance T1 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. This truck will likely feature several off-road enhancing components, such as a new suspension system and lift kit to complement the set of rugged wheels and tires. Power enhancements will likely be strictly limited to bolt-on parts, unfortunately, as General Motors has made it so that it’s virtually impossible to access the engine’s control module to further enhance performance.
