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."

Don’t fret, they are probably preparing that one already as we speak. That one is definitely going to be a must see, so we better watch out for it.

Well, even if they are bragging or not, this one still looks to be one heck of a car. And I would certainly appreciate it even more with a lap around the track.

I don’t think that they are simply bragging on this one, the dyno is a rather good measure of the car’s performance. But I do agree with you that it would be good to see this one on the track.

This one seems to be nothing more than all brag. I have seen much better cars than this, so I want to see a video of it on track for them to prove me wrong.

Well, it’s a good thing that they have beefed up the Camaro’s internals wit all those upgrades. The standard Camaro probably won’t survive the 1200 hp output of the engine.

hmm. I find it kind of interesting, putting the supercharged Camaro at the Firebird! This would a bid test for bumblebee!

1,234 HP sounds kind of dangerous, It seems that this car doesn’t have any limit for top speed anymore! For a muscle car, I think this car is kind of amazing!

Pretty crazy numbers indeed. Imagine that, 1,200+ hp in a Camaro. That one is really going to be a great ride. Now it’s time that they get it to a track.

That’s quite a mind blowing package that they have got there. Now if they would only release a video of the car on the track and not on the dyno, that would really be interesting.

What the heck!1,234 HP is an amazing power! It feels like driving on a sports car! It’s quite unbelievable on how they come up with those figure!

hmm. Quite impressive! It seems that Camaro will turn into a monster ride since the engine was modified and turn into more powerful one!

Wow, that Camaro is quite a looker. And the number s are quite impressive too. I sure hope that they would release a video of this one in action.
