Don't let the mags and factory hp ratings fool you, this is definitely a 290-300hp truck that can EASILLLYYYY be tuned to around 550hp, it can do 14.8-14.9s bone stock in the 1/4-mile, sometimes even 14.5s @ 97mph. This was an ULTRA-BADASS AND LIGHTWEIGHT (for its time) PICKUP TRUCK. Not to mention it's a 7.4 big block, not some p***y ass 5.7 small block.

IT REALLY FREAKING STOOD OUT from the Li'l Red Express, a 5.9L truck, and the first- and second-gen Lightnings, both in the 5.x range (5.8L and 5.4L supercharged, respectively). With a twin-supercharger or a twin-turbocharger kit on ALL FOUR of these super trucks, you can squeeze THE MOST POWER out of the d_mn Chevy!

Edit: NOT to mention, GM has a reputation of building the most simplistic and most easily-tunable V8 engines. A GM V8 of identical power to a Ford or MoPar "equivalent" is 1.5x-even 2.0x more powerful when fully modded thanks to essentially super-accessible parts from aftermarket and even OEM-approved shops!

@Toyota, Nissan, most European V8s and V10s: Don't even THINK ABOUT screwing (messing) with us...

what are the factory engine detail differences for the 1993 454 verse the 454SS, what gave the motor an extra 25 horsepower and extra torque from the factory?

@BR2+: Yes, Chevrolet continued putting their 7.4 liter V8 in pickup trucks and suvs until 1997. It was usually found in the C and K Series 2500 and 3500 pickups. But they offered a Silverado 1500 with the 454 as a performance package in the early 90s. This inspired Ford to make the F150 SVT Lightning.

It's in the link. They tested it. Maybe the power is underrated by the manufacturer.

What's wrong with adding pick up trucks to this site? I hope they add more. But honestly, this truck couldn't finish the 1/4 mile in 15.8 seconds falling from 1/4 above the ground. It'd need a power to weight ratio of around 13 LBS per horsepower, The Silverado 454 SS has 17.4.
