STS808 Brings The Boost To A Bagged & Customized Chevy
James Smith, or “Smitty” as he is more commonly known, and his shop STS808 in Kapolei, Hawaii built this 2011 4.8L Silverado LS to show off some of the many things they can do. Although still a work in progress, this bagged and Supercharged ride may be just the thing to go rolling around paradise in style.
Under the hood, the most prominent addition to the factory 4.8L Chevy engine is definitely the Lysholm 2300AX Supercharging System. Along with the boost, Smitty added a Ligenfelter 160° thermostat, NGK TR6 spark plugs, and a set of Spintech mufflers out back. This combination was good for a base tune result of 404RWHP and 400RWTQ! Smitty says a set of long tube headers and a retune are in the truck’s near future for even more power and torque.To get this GM Full Size sitting low, a list of suspension parts were thrown at it, including a Ekstensive front control arm kit with Monroe Sensa Track Corvette shocks, Ekstensive Rear 2-link and notch With Monroe Mono-Tube shocks, 4 – 2600 lb bags, 8 – SMC 1/2″ valves, 2 – SMC Air dryers, 2 – 5 gallon tanks, 2 – VIAR 444 compressors, AVS billet digital gauge, AVS billet switch box, Narrowed 4 inch rear end.
