Supercharger, Induction-System Tweaks Give Camaro ZL-1 Rarified Air
ALTON, VA – Engineers make both hardware and software tweaks to General Motors’ supercharged LSA 6.2L V-8 engine to wring out more horsepower and torque from the venerable small-block architecture for its application in the ’12 Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1.
Compared with the LSA V-8 that powers the Cadillac CTS-V, the version in the Camaro ZL-1 makes an additional 24 hp for a peak SAE-rated 580 ponies at 6,000 rpm. Credit a larger Eaton-sourced supercharger, a designed-from-scratch induction system and an active exhaust system.
