2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS – Drop In Pistons

Ryan brought us his 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS to have the LT1 reinforced! With the previously installed Edelbrock Performance E-Force TVS2300 supercharger system pushing on the stock bottom end limitations, Ryan wanted to proactively build the engine so that it's solid when he's ready to turn the wick up!

With the mechanical work wrapped up in the shop by Dylan, John strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom calibration via HP Tuners. With the Edelbrock TVS2300 supercharger delivering only ~8psi, Vlad increased the LT1’s output to a solid 641.39whp & 625.38lbft on 93 octane! We can't wait to see what this 6th Gen lays down with more boost and a little more octane in the mix!
