2014 LT1/Gen 5 engine development well underway at Livernois Motorsports

We here at Livernois Motorsports wanted to share something with the message boards that we've been holding on to for a number of months now…. While others have just now started to get vehicles in hand, we have been doing something much more in depth, we have been doing R&D on the new Gen5/LT series of engines. We can't quite tell you exactly what specific items we are working on making for it, but we can say that the future looks very bright for this engine family, and it's power potential. In addition to the engines we have at our disposal, we also have a 5.3L Silverado that we have already baseline dyno'd and have been starting to work out an improved calibration as we speak.

For you Corvette lovers in our fan base, we haven't forgotten about you. We do have a 2014 Arctic White Z51 on order with the 7-speed manual that we should be seeing sometime in the near future. But, for the impatient among us we already have a 6.2 engine to play with to keep us busy. We are definitely excited about tearing into the car and seeing how far we can take it based off of what we have already learned from the engine alone.

Well Dan just finished up tuning the truck and these are the results!

Green=baseline 87 octane
Red= 87 performance
Blue= 93 performance
Remember this is a bone stock engine, only things changed were the tune and fuel!

Never thought I would see a performance tune on 87 octane. Can't wait to see what these engines do with bolt-ons and a cam...

The improvements are vast throughout the entire vehicle! If you were a Silverado fan before, you'll be in love with this one. -Chris

I believe torque managnent was killing us that night, when launching the car would take off and fall flat on it's face.

Don't forget get about all that extra torque!!! I bet these things are ridiculous with forced induction.

To be honest, we will not touch E85 for tuning. While it can be a great fuel, it is far to inconsistent to trust in this situation. This is the same reason why, when you look at a factory tune, they don't add all kinds of timing into the vehicle. E85 degrades rapidly, and cannot be reliably treated as any better than 89 octane.
