    2019 Silverado 1500 Gets I-4 Turbo

    Don’t know how many of you saw this yet, but the 2019 Silverado 1500 is getting a four-cylinder engine option. Sounds crazy, but makes a respectable 310 hp and 348 lb-ft. https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/mark-phelan/2018/05/18/2019-chevy-silverado-four-cylinder-engine/621465002/

I plan to do 4 barrel intake, carb, cam, headers, double roller timing chain or noisy timing gears, and maybe...
