Lingenfelter blew our minds last year when they brought out their Camaro SS LS9 package boasting a whopping 1,234 HP. This year, they are headed to the 2011 Camaro5Fest with a variation of that same tuning package, modified to burn some rubber on the drag strip.
The spruced up Camaro SS will now feature a revised Pedders/Lingenfelter drag race shock absorber package along with a 427 CID LSX engine. The package goes further to include Lingenfelter CNC ported GM LS3 six bolt cylinder heads, a face plated TR6060 Trans by RPM Transmissions, a strain gauged shifter, and an LPE (LNC-TC1) 2-step with shift torque cut. These modifications have already been tested at the Dyno and have completed a WOT 3-4 shift with both stages of nitrous, tuning both the initiation and duration of the torque cut. The Dyno test was completed in vehicle simulation mode while producing over 1200 rwhp at 7200 rpm.
"Our Camaro holds the distinction of being the first full weight 5th Gen Camaro SS to go into the 8s in the quarter-mile - boasting an 8.997 second run at 158.8 mph last November," said Ken Lingenfelter, owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. "Since then, the Camaro has been modified with a drag race suspension package that we developed in conjunction with Pedders featuring a new RPM built face plated transmission and an LPE torque cut module. Our team is looking forward to putting the supercharged Camaro to the test at Firebird."
