2010 Camaro SS Birthday Surprise
May 2013 - Shane is now graduating from high school and the car remains in
excellent condition. You might also be surprised to learn that he still
hasn't gotten any tickets. We're very proud of the responsible young man he
Apr 2012 -- Well, Shane is now 17 and after 23,000 miles I'm happy to
report that he still hasn't had any accidents or tickets. He'll be a
senior next year and he's considering a career in automotive design. We'll
be posting an update video soon!!
Jan 2011 -- Shane has recently turned 16 and put more than 4,000 miles on
the car without ANY incidents. He takes outstanding care of the vehicle
and has grown to become a very responsible and mature teenager.
Feb 2010 -- My wife and I ordered a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS as a surprise birthday
gift for our fifteen year old son. This was a complete surprise and he
had absolutely no idea that the car was his. On another note, I appreciate
everyone's concern for his well-being, however I think it is more
responsible for a parent to teach a teenager how to drive than to pretend
that they're not going to drive fast. The car is not the danger; an
inexperienced driver is usually what causes injury or death, regardless of
Smokin Camaro: Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS
FOR FULL HENNESSEY ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Automotive lust in America means blown Camaros. You know, like the red
'69s on every cover of Car Craft. A big BDS 10-71 Supercharger sticking through the hood and massive
M/T drag slicks under tubs in back. Let the rest of the world dream of
Ferraris, Lamborghinis and dinky little British two-seaters. In this
country speed doesn't look like that.
It looks like this.
This is the Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) "HPE550" supercharged
2010 Camaro SS. That's
right, it's a blown Camaro. The first blown 2010
Chevy Camaro. And that
makes it the very newest version of a true American icon. Ranks right up
there with the Beach Boys, buckets of deep fried chicken and our
incomprehensible Internal Revenue Code.
Be proud of it. We Americans invented the greatest car ever: The loud,
tire-smoking, V8-powered, front-engine, rear-wheel-drive muscle machine.
And we should celebrate the accomplishment just as John Hennessey is, by

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain
heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top
honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge. It
was time to refocus the lens. Shoot from a different angle, so to speak.
So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against
the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 and 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.
2010 Camaro SS Exhaust Sound: Aftermarket Parts - TSP 1 7/8" Headers & TSP Rumbler 5 Catback Exhaust
As most have probably seen, our 390-mile SS baselined at 372 RWHP and 372
RWTQ. FYI, the car is a six-speed manual. With the addition of our
prototype TSP 1 7/8" long tube headers, off-road connection pipes, and
cat-back Exhaust, the car gained 26
RWHP and 35 RWTQ to net 398 RWHP and 407 RWTQ! Again, these are untuned
numbers. Achieving 400+ RWHP with stock induction will be a walk in the
park once it's tuned. We are very pleased with the results. The headers
feature 1 7/8" primary tubes with 3" collectors, and the headers will be
ceramic-coated inside and out! Our TSP Rumbler 5 cat-back Exhaust system will use your choice of two OR
four Dynomax bullet
mufflers! The system being tested on our car uses the four mufflers, and it
has a great sound to it, as you can hear in the video below! Our Rumbler 5
cat-back Exhaust system will be a
direct bolt-on system just behind the factory cats for those wanting to
retain the stock Exhaust manifolds and
catalytic converters. The great part is that you can start with our Rumbler
5 cat-back Exhaust system, and if you
decide to add our TSP long tube headers down the road, with or without
cats, it will all bolt up! No cutting or welding will be required!
These are preliminary results, and we will complete our results once we can
monitor what the PCM is doing. We will also complete our testing of our TSP
induction system for the 5th gen once tuning is available. FYI, we will
have Dyno numbers in a
few days testing our Rumbler 5 cat-back Exhaust as the only mod, for those interested.
Not only will you be able to gain some nice power from the additional flow,
but you'll also shed quite a bit of weight! The factory Exhaust system is NOT light, particularly the
trash cans GM calls mufflers. All said and done, I think it will be very
feasible for new Camaro
owners to legitimately make 420+ RWHP with bolt-on modifications! We have a
few other bolt-on mods in the works that we should be done testing shortly.
Give it some time, and you're going to see 500+ RWHP N/A '10 Camaros roaming the streets with
heads/cam packages and bolt-on mods! Our new SuperFlow 902 engine Dyno will be installed next
week, and then we will begin our extensive LS3 and L99 VVT testing. All TSP
products will be test-proven, both on our engine and chassis Dynos. We will offer proven
packages with real-world results for everyone to see. Our second '10 Camaro SS will hopefully
be delivered in a month or less, so we will be able to test on multiple
cars to guage consistency between vehicles. It will also give us another
platform to try other mods! We are dedicated to providing the best parts
and packages available with proven results.
