Spoolio – 8-Second TT Camaro

November 23rd, 2017

This video treats us to a long weekend of speed from Arizona. Get ready for some high flying (almost) dyno action, electrifying quarter-mile passes, and a ride along for some bone jarring half-mile hits.

Our feature ride for this well produced flick is a Gen IV Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It has been upgraded with a built 376 cubic-inch LS3 engine block and a set of LSA cylinder heads. Engine performance is amplified with a Huron twin turbocharger kit. Power is dyno certified at 1,050hp (21 psi of boost) on this day and the twin turbo V8 sounds amazing.

The action begins on the dyno at Cordes Performance in Tucson, Arizona. Spoolio really pushed a set of ratchet straps to their limits during this test; with the body flexing under the massive horsepower and torque exhibited in the speed lab.

Next, it was out to the drag strip for some quarter-mile passes. The competition was based on an LS versus modular format. Ideally, that would pit Chevy against Ford but a pair of LSx Camaros wound up going head-to-head in the finals. Oh well, you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men.

Finally, it’s on to the half-mile airstrip where you will enjoy a POV ride-along. Hold on to your hat as this Chevy screams down the runway at speeds exceeding 150 mph.
