Camaro | Chevrolet | SS : August 28, 2020
Al brought us his Krypton Green 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS to have the LT1 put under pressure and have the fuel system upgraded with ZL1/LT4 components!
Up first in the shop, TJ installed a W175AX 2.9L twin-screw system from Whipple Superchargers, Super Damper from ATI Performance Products, LTR7IX-11 spark plugs from NGK Spark Plugs, topped off with OEM GM LT4 high-pressure fuel pump, OEM GM LT4 fuel injectors, and OEM GM ZL1 low-pressure fuel pump to provide more headroom for future modifications. Then with the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, John strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom calibration via HP Tuners.
With the Whipple 2.9L delivering ~8.5psi, 93 octane in the tank, and 100% stock exhaust system in place, Vlad increased the LT1’s output to 600.69whp & 615.36lbft -- a gain of ~200whp & 200lbft over where these cars normally baseline on our dynos!
