• 1969 Chevrolet Camaro by Nelson Racing Engines

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.
