Cowmaro – 1100HP Full Build Rundown

November 10th, 2018

Want to know how to squeeze over 1,000HP out of an LS Camaro? Here’s the gameplan:

At the heart of this all-American monster is an RPM built 416 cubic-inch (Texas Speed 4-inch stroke crankshaft) LS3 block with Callie’s CompStar connecting rods and Wiseco pistons. The compression ratio is estimated to be 11:1. That’s ideal when you’re running E85 fuel. The camshaft is an RPM general purpose unit that is relatively versatile. The moderate cam allows the car to run a supercharger, turbos, or naturally aspirated without a lot of extra headaches. Up top, we have a set of LSA ported cylinder heads with .660-inch dual valve springs. A Melling oil pump, LS7 lifters, Texas Speed push rods, and a Comp Cams rocker arm trunnion upgrade round out the engine enhancements nicely.

Fuel is supplied by a Fore triple pump system using ID 1700X fuel injectors for delivery.

Massive, Stainless Works forward-facing exhaust headers, a custom RPM Y-Pipe, twin 40-millimeter Tial Sport wastegates with downward facing dump tubes, and a Precision 88-millimeter billet wheel, journal-bearing turbocharger make-up the hot side of the turbo setup. On the cold side, a ProCharger air-to-water intercooler tucks away smoothly behind the right headlight. It is fed (ice cold H20) using a trunk mounted pump and a 7-gallon reservoir. A ProCharger blow off valve is also hidden beneath the right front bumper.

This Camaro SS is rotten with high-performance modifications (including a Strange 9-inch center section). At first glance, the car looks stock and I love a good sleeper. Have a look and get some ideas for your next project.
