Big Turbo Camaro Gets Violent, Makes 925WHP on the Rollers
A 408 cubic inch LSX and massive turbo makes for one nasty Camaro.
We are looking at a fourth gen Chevrolet Camaro working out on the rollers during the 2017 Race Proven Motorsports Dyno Day. While the details are short, we know that this F-Body is powered by a 408 cubic inch LSX. Said V8 has been fitted with a huge 88mm Borg Warner turbocharger. As the video begins, we get a good look at the engine bay of this beast while it sits and idles while waiting for its turn on the dyno.
Keen viewers will spot some fat slicks out back, an exhaust system which vents in front of the right front tires and a parachute. We’re going to go out on a limb and say this isn’t the guys daily driver. Though, funnily enough, it has a license plate.
After idling outside for a while, the driver creeps into the RPM shop and heads to the dyno. At first, we get some tepid AFR runs which are short and sweet. After that, it’s game time, this turbocharged Camaro makes an incredible rip on the rollers. In fact, even with the tires spinning, this murdered out Chevy lays down 925.32 horsepower at the rear wheels.
With the hopes of getting better traction, VHT trackbite liquid is poured onto the rollers. The boosted Camaro makes another run, but the tires still spin hard. Even with the wheelspin, the car to “only” makes 872rwhp. Tough day in the office, that’s for sure. However, having turned over 925 rear wheel horsepower on the previous run, this is very easily a car that could make 1,000whp with good grip.
