Ted LewchukSTE-Catherine, Quebec'07 Shelby GT500When Ted Lewchuk lifted the bonnet of his GT500, we were astounded when it came to the blower of choice. Instead of, say a Kenne Bell or a Whipple, Lewchuk kept the stock Eaton compressor aboard his 5.4L Four-Valve monster. Evidently the stock blower didn't impede Lewchuk's performance, as he ripped off more than a few quick passes. Piloting the GT500 equipped with the stock six-speed manual transmission, Lewchuk opened with a 10.66, which is stout considering the factory supercharger. He made three other passes, with his last pass of the day barely eclipsing the opening 10.66. We were left to wonder just how quick Lewchuk could have gone if he had used an aftermarket blower.
Good Info in this Article. Good to see the "Lightnings" at work again.
