Another first for Callaway, the specialist manufacturer has just
developed a new version of the service-proven Eaton TVS supercharger for
the 2014 Silverado/Sierra 5.3L. Shown in the attached photos with data
collection instrumentation still attached, the Callaway system includes a
new supercharger manifold and other hardware required for the new
Chevrolet L83 "Eco-Tec" engine. Callaway engineers also developed
calibration for the new-for-'14 GM electronic powertrain management
system. Significantly different for 2014, the new electronics control
Direct Injection, continuously Variable Valve Timing, Active Fuel
Management and other engine functions.


While the new powertrain management system provided new challenges
for Callaway's development staff, its additional control authority also
provided improved refinement and integration of positive manifold
pressure, through all the transient conditions of "normal" drive cycles.
The Callaway Silverado's performance and drivability are nothing less
than spectacular. The development project is now in the final stages of
in-vehicle testing and validation; final horsepower and torque rating
will be released very soon.


Developing the new Silverado/Sierra engine management calibration is
especially important because the 2014 Corvette uses much of the same
powertrain management architecture and controls. Lessons learned in
developing the Silverado/Sierra system have been extrapolated to the new
Corvette platform. Consequently, Callaway enjoys a significant
headstart in developing the supercharged 2014 Callaway Corvette and
Silverado/Sierra 6.2L.

Development is also underway for Silverado/Sierra optional equipment,
such as suspension components for improved ride and handling, wheel and
tire packages, brake systems and interior upgrades.

Authorized Callaway Dealers are ready to take orders for the new
Callaway Silverado and Sierra 5.3L Crew Cab now, with Extended Cab and
Standard Cab models following soon. Callaway will introduce the
supercharged 6.2L-equipped 2014 Callaway Silverado, Callaway Sierra and
Callaway Corvette later this year. Tahoe and Suburban for 2014, and
their GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Cadillac Escalade counterparts, are
carried over from 2013 with only minor changes.
