2011 Shelby GT500 Acceleration 0 - 120 mph
2011 Shelby GT500 SVTPP, VMP 2.59 pulley, JLT carbon fiber intake tube, colder spark plugs, tune. The tune started as a Bama tune but was tweaked by Injected Engineering to accommodate upgrades. 0-60 4.6 secs, 0-100 8.7 secs. Private road on farm. Car has not been Dyno'd "yet" but I'm guessing it's around 540 rwhp 500 torque. I have a few other vids up of the car stock and tune only...check em out :-)

ZL1 Camaro Spitting Fire
I thought this looked cool, it's a ZL1 Camaro making a 1/4 mile Dyno pull and shooting a big flame at the end.
This Camaro was built by 510 Race Engineering in Houston
I'm actually not sure what the time showed on the Dyno, I'll try to find out and post it later.

My New 2013 Chevy Camaro ZL1 V8 Supercharged (Start Up+ Rev) Exhaust
After years of saving my money and selling almost every single GR pair of Jordan's I have, I finally did it. 2013 Camaro ZL1 6.2L V8 Supercharged LSA Engine
The ZL1 packs a more powerful version of the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 commonly found under the hood of the Cadillac CTS-V. In the ZL1, the motor is good for 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque, beating out the 1969 ZL1's 427 cubic inch V8 by more than 150 horsepower. Helping make those impressive power figures is a 1.9-liter Roots-style Supercharger that crams air into the engine with a pair of four-lobe rotors and the aid of an Intercooler.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Track Test Drive & Muscle Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2012/zl1-coupe/ Autobytel Road Test Editor T.J. Keon recently had the chance to test drive the all new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 on the street as well as on the track at Virginia International Raceway. The Camaro ZL1 sports a supercharged V-8 engine that makes 580 horsepower. Base price for the ZL1 is $54,095.
On the road the Camaro ZL1 feels firm and planted, but the ride is not rough or harsh. In fact the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 could make for a great daily driver. The Alcantara lined seats and steering wheel feel great and are usually reserved for high end luxury cars. But make no mistake; the ZL1 was designed to kick-butt!
One of the things that make the ZL1 special is the optional 20-inch lightweight track wheel. These black 10-spoke rims are made from forged aluminum for strength. The rims are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Generation 2 tires sized P285/35ZR20 up front and P305/35ZR20 out back. A huge Brembo Brake package sits behind these sinister rims. Suspension chores are handled by the Magnetic Ride Control System. The shocks are filled with a magnetorheological fluid and the dampening levels are computer controlled and adjusted up to 1000 per second. This makes for a comfortable ride on the road and a more than capable ride on the track.
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is powered by a Supercharged Corvette engine dubbed the LSA. The 6.2 liter V-8 engine packs an Eaton Supercharger on top. Power output is 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft. of torque. The Supercharger provides plenty of torque at any RPM level so that the power is there whenever you want it! You can choose between a Hydra-Matic 6-Speed Automatic Transmission w/TAPSHIFT or Tremec 6-speed manual transmission.
The Camaro ZL1 can run from 0-60 MPH in 4.0 seconds and can eclipse the ¼ mile in 12.0 seconds. Top speed for the ZL1 is 180 MPH. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway if you are wondering. On the road the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 pulls hard from any RPM thanks to the flat torque curve provided by the Supercharger. Practically every part on the Camaro ZL1 was designed to aid this Muscle Car in going fast. At just $54,095 the ZL1 can't be beat when you are talking high performance for the money. The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 sports the amount of technology and horsepower you would expect to find on a car costing 4 times at much.

2012 Camaro ZL1 Joins the 11-second Club Camaro ZL1 Joins the 11-second Club
DETROIT -- The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is officially in the "11-second" club, as engineers recently turned an 11.93-second/116-mph quarter-mile elapsed time run in a showroom-stock Camaro ZL1 automatic. A Camaro ZL1 manual ran an 11.96-second ET at 117 mph.
Only a few other production vehicles can run the quarter-mile as quickly as the ZL1. Fewer yet can also run 0-60 in 4 seconds, reach a top speed of 184 mph and lap the famous Nürburgring in 7:41.27 -- all with the street-legal, factory-issued components and no time-consuming equipment adjustments at the racetrack.
"The ZL1 is great at everything and we're very proud of that," said Tony Roma, Camaro ZL1 program engineering manager. "You can take it to the drag strip and run 11-second quarter-miles all day long. You can also take it to a road course, where it's balanced, handles well, and does exactly what you want -- including lapping Virginia International Raceway's Grand Course in under three minutes -- and yet the ZL1 is sophisticated enough to use as a daily driver. It's a supercar you can drive every day."
For perspective, the Camaro ZL1 is so quick that some drivers who experiment with "drag radial" tires or full racing slicks may find themselves going too quick for most NHRA-sanctioned racetracks, where a five-point roll bar is required for vehicles running 11.49 or quicker. The 11.93-second ET in a stock ZL1 tested by the engineers wore the factory-issued Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires developed specifically for it, putting the car only a scant 0.44-second away from that additional racing safety requirement.
Tuned for the drag strip
The original, special-order 1969 Camaro ZL1s are still revered for their legendary performance on the drag strip and Chevrolet was keenly aware that customers for the new, 21st century edition would undoubtedly test its straight-line mettle in quarter-mile increments.
The Camaro team re-engineered 30 percent of a Camaro 2SS to make the ZL1, including special modifications just for the drag strip.
"We know many of customers will take their ZL1 to the drag strip," said Gordon Rojewski, driveline development engineer -- and who is also an experienced drag racer and owner of a turbocharged, 920-horsepower street car. "Some may just go once, to experience the full potential of the 580-horsepower LSA engine. Others may be more serious, going every other weekend with a set of slicks in the trunk. As such, we set out to make sure the ZL1 would perform for them -- on the first pass and on the 100th."
For example, to withstand the heavy loads of repeated hard launches, the ZL1 features a stout 9.9-inch rear differential mounted in a robust cast iron center section. It also features a standard differential cooler that can lower the temperature by 100 degrees F for improved performance and longevity.
The ZL1 also features asymmetrical half-shafts: a 60mm hollow shaft on the right and a 33mm solid shaft on the left. The different torsional stiffness rates of the shafts work in conjunction with the limited-slip differential to minimize the chance of wheel hop at launch. Engineers modified the rear suspension, as well, to accommodate an 18-inch wheel, for owners who want to fit a set of drag-radials with taller sidewalls to improve their ETs.
Even the ZL1's exclusive Performance Traction Management (PTM) was tuned for the drag-strip. It integrates third-generation Magnetic Ride Control, launch control, traction control, electronic stability control and electric power steering response to enhance performance. Launch control (manual transmission only) automatically modulates engine torque for the best-possible acceleration without excessive wheel spin. When the driver pushes the throttle to the floor, the system holds a predetermined engine speed until the driver releases the clutch. Then, the system modulates engine torque 1,000 times per second to maximize the available traction.
Mode 5 of launch control is uniquely calibrated for drag strips that use VHT or similar traction-enhancing compounds on the starting line. In addition to validating the system for the stock tires, engineers also tested it with 18- and 20-inch racing-type drag radial tires in anticipation of the specialty tires many drivers will use at the track. Drag radials are very soft and provide nearly the traction of a full racing slick, allowing the car to launch at a higher rpm without wheel spin, which can translate into an even quicker ET.
Proven with 1,000 hard launch tests
The Camaro ZL1 is on sale now with a suggested retail price of $54,995 -- including a $900 destination charge. The 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission includes TapShift control and is a $1,185 option. The Camaro ZL1 convertible goes on sale this summer.
