2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS LS9 by Lingenfelter

Lingenfelter has been working on the Chevrolet Camaro SS for months now with different tuning packages boasting of power from 550hp on up to their newest package, the LS9, which delivers a massive 1,234hp! Whether your Camaro is the 2010 or the 2011 model, Lingenfelter has a power package that will blow your socks off, as long as you have an extra $38,393 in you pocket.

The tuning packages for the Camaro SS have already scored some impressive results as a Camaro loaded up with the 855hp package ran the quarter mile in 10.36 seconds at a speed of 139.95 MPH. Shortly after that it broke the 10-second quarter mile time.

But the most impressive package has just been revealed. In this latest package, Lingenfelter managed to squeeze an impressive 1,234 HP out of the overachieving muscle car. That’s quite an accomplishment considering the standard 426 HP it started with.

Hit the jump to read about all the changes made to this model.

Exterior and Interior

We can’t say that Lingenfelter paid much attention to the exterior or the interior of the Camaro SS. The tuning firm’s focus was mainly on powering out the muscle car. They did, however, manage to apply a black powder coat finish and a set of CCW three piece aluminum wheels to the vehicle.

Engine Update

Here is where the Indiana-based company put their heart and soul on the line. Lingenfelter removed the V8 engine and added a GM LS9 Eaton TVS2300 supercharged engine to be able to blow the roof off of anyone who had the chance to take a seat inside of the muscle car. After that it was all about controlling the power and providing parts to listen to the beautiful music coming out of the engine. To do this, Lingenfelter added JE pistons, CNC ported heads with OEM titanium intake valves, and sodium filled hollow step exhaust valves. After that came the Lingenfelter GT9 supercharger camshaft, Comp cams, 2.38" supercharger pulley, 102mm throttle body, long tube headers, a two-stage dry nitrous system, and twin fuel pumps.

Pricing

This is where the old saying, "You get what you pay for" comes into effect. The full package price is $38,393.00, but you can also add a chrome supercharger case for $1,000.00. If you want to convert the L99 to an LS3, it’s going to cost you $1,324.00, and aluminum coil covers painted according to the vehicle’s body color and with LPE logos will run $599.00.

The Competition

When it comes to tuning a Camaro, there are plenty of options to choose from. Of course, the only ones we can think of that would even come close to the package provided by Lingenfelter are Hennessey’s tuning packages.

Hennessey offers its customers three different packages to choose from: the HPE600 , HPE700 and HPE800 with the number of ponies stated right in the title. These packages do not even begin to touch the 1,234 horsepowered monster that is the Camaro LS9, but at least they add some extra zing to the Camaro, as well as some extra styling on the exterior.

No bad! For a 550 hp, well that’s a great performing car. When it comes to pricing I think its reasonable plus you will get an option to convert your car or not.

Muscle car would be the most aggressive model in American auto industry. I just love it though it doesn’t perform well. And I think that’s the selling edge of this car which I find kind of impressive!

Great to comment on track performance, but have you any thoughts on the real world ride quality and livability of the Brembo car vs the base GT?

I am not a professional driver and the test numbers I gave were not achieved by dumping the clutch or power-shifting. In fact, my cars have been automatics and I’ve gotten 0-60 in under 5 seconds without doing anything fancy.

I find it ironic in this high-performance car crowd that so many have to ask "WHY?".They are the same ones asking why anyone would build a 130hp Harley when you can just go out and buy a 600cc sport bike that would be even quicker.

According to them, this car is not for beginner. If you don’t like it you can’t afford it!

It has a strong design and a strong heritage and delivers seriously strong acceleration.

The results justify the expense, however, with the car delivering three 9-second quarter mile runs at Muncie Dragway
