This is definitely not Nelson Racing Engines’ first tuning package based on a Chevrolet Camaro . If you remember, the company unveiled an awesome 1,500-horsepower upgrade package for a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro . This latest kit, however, puts the earlier one to shame.
It’s not superior just because it delivers an extra 500 horsepower, but also because it is based on a 1969 Camaro . For those of you who do not remember, the 1969 Camaro developed a "modest" output of 140 - 430 horsepower, depending on the model. The folks over Nelson have found a solution to push its output to an outlandish 2,000 horsepower. For this Nelson installed an NRE Billet Blackout Series twin-turbo intercooled 572-cubic-inch big-block Chevy crate engine with dual fuel injectors per cylinder. The package also includes a 304 stainless NRE exhaust with with x-pipe and an aluminum dual-row dual-pass radiator with twin high-output electric fans to help keep things cool.
The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox that send power to the ground via a Strange 9-inch rear end with nodular case and 35-spline axles. The tuner also installed a new front suspension with adjustable coil-over shocks and a set of custom wheels.
The car is painted a beautiful midnight black and on the inside it has custom low-back seats wrapped in leather, a full 1,000-watt sound system and a Vintage Air climate control system.
