The engineers at Callaway are typically under the hood of a V8-packing rear-drive coupe trying to add as much horsepower as possible, but now the specialty tuner is in the truck business as well. Callaway has launched a new truck modification kit for 5.3- and 6.2-liter-equipped Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickups, adding superchargers to boost horsepower to up to 540 ponies.

The official price tag for the components needed is $15,995, and that will net you 450 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 450 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm if you're modifying the 5.3-liter, and 540 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 522 lb-ft at 3,800 revolutions if you're tweaking the 6.2-liter V8. The package also comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile Callaway powertrain warranty, with the option to upgrade to five years and 100,000 miles. And since the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 engines are available on several GM trucks, ranging from the Tahoe to the Suburban, that means this mod kit is available to more than just the Silverado 1500.
