LT4 Supercharged Wrangler

The Jeep guys tell us how they like the Supercharged LT4. Different application, but you get the same results, massive instant horsepower with a docile idle. Gen V with VVT and direct injection make all the difference. Unless you get a ride in one of these conversions you don’t know what you’re missing.

Nice clean installation

This is the latest version of the LT4, you can tell by the taller intercooler/supercharger top which is thicker and is straight across. The earlier version was thinner up front and kicked up slightly in the rear. After the first version came out there were issues with overheating on tracked Z06 cars that went into limp mode. To solve this issue GM designed larger intercooler bricks that necessitated a thicker cover for the supercharger.

Here’s the latest info and updates on the father of Pro-Tourings latest effort that was unveiled at the 2017 SEMA show.  Check my previous post here.
Unlike my build, Mark chose to use the dry sump version of the LT4 and managed to hide all the plumbing and sump inside the fender well.  From what I’ve read this is just the starting point because he’s planning on boosting performance, so stay tuned.

“I’ve always liked the immediate power delivery that comes with supercharging, and the LT4 is a great engine in that regard, with a broad powerband and tremendous low-end punch,” says Stielow. “Considering the technology and performance wrapped up in the crate engine, it would be virtually impossible to build something comparable from the ground up, making it a cost-effective and time-saving choice.”
