2002 Chevy Silverado for Sale Offers 9-Second Potential
Short bed, short cab Chevy Silverado looks like a show truck and runs like a race truck with room for improvement.
If you have been dreaming of a late model Chevrolet Silverado pickup with a turbocharged V8, 9-second potential in the quarter mile and a relatively stock look, start thinking of how to explain to your wife that you have to buy a new-to-you truck. While flipping through the LS1Tech Marketplace, we came across this 2002 Silverado that was posted for sale by “settlemoore”. It sounds like it hasn’t run in the 9s, but with a reported trap speed of 135 miles per hour after a shaky launch, this half-ton Chevy could get into the 9-second range with some tuning and a dose of driver mod.
When the OP first posted his 2002 Chevrolet Silverado for sale, he included the following background on the truck.
This is pretty much a race truck, no ac, heat, power steering, and the radio is not hooked up
Selling because I am taking a new job which will not allow the free time something like this needs
Truck is very clean, not perfect by any means but body is over all in good shape
Couple scratches on the paint, nothing crazy. I do believe the cab was pulled at some point and dropped off a lift so there are dents in each of the rockers
I do not have dyno numbers, I’ve only had one track outing with which the trans brake was not working and it trapped ~135mph on a very conservative tune. Definitely has the potential to run high 9’s easily if you can get the short track down. I did not originally build this truck so the mods are listed to the best of my knowledge/what I could verify
If you do not have indoor storage the truck does leak from the dash somewhere, I have a very nice cover to go with it but I just wanted to give full disclosure
I am listing this at $17,000

He also included a lengthy modification list which may or may not be accurate and it sounds like the seller isn’t all that interested in answering question unless you are 100% ready to buy with cash in hand.
The key features of this 2002 Silverado are focused under the hood, where the stock 4.8-liter V8 has been a hotter camshaft, an intake manifold from a Trailblazer SS, a Borg Warner T6 S475 turbocharger that vents through the right front fender and an upgraded fuel system. We don’t know what kind of power it is making, but a TCI TH400 transmission with a 3,000 stall sends the power to the Currie 9-inch Ford differential with a 3.73 gear, while a set of Mickey Thompson drag radials puts the power to the ground.
Other upgrades include a lowered suspension setup, traction bars, disc brakes all-around and a custom interior switch layout. Really, the interior could use some sprucing-up, as that shifter looks terrible with the current mount, but the rest of the truck looks so great that the ugly shifter can be overlooked.
That is especially true with some tuning work to the engine and perhaps some added suspension work, allowing this 2002 Chevy Silverado to get into the 9-second range and tear up the street.
