Kong Ported Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – Dyno Pulls

December 3rd, 2021

So, the gang at Late Model Performance (LMP) are at it again. These cats are among the industry leaders when it comes to GM performance. They specialize in modern forced air induction systems such as superchargers and turbochargers. This video will focus primarily on a late model Camaro ZL1 with a Kong ported blower.

The ZL1 is the top tier of the Camaro line. It comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that can produce 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. LMP is hoping to see way more than that on today’s dyno test. In stock trim, the Camaro ZL1 can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 3.4-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 11.5-seconds @ 124 mph. The ZL1 weighs in at 3,886-pounds and has a top speed of 190 mph. Shifting duties are handled via a 10-speed automatic. The LMP modifications should lay waste to all those factory specs.

In addition to the Kong ported 2650 supercharger, LMP upgrades include a Texas Speed and Performance (TSP) all-aluminum 418 cubic-inch engine block with a set of Frankenstein Stage 2 cylinder heads and a performance camshaft. Supercharger pulleys have been replaced with a 9.1 lower and a 2.75 upper. Exhaust manifolds have been replaced with a set of Kooks 2-inch long tube headers. The intake manifold has been upgraded and outfitted with a 102-millimeter throttle body. An auxiliary fuel system, a dual jet methanol injection system and an LMP air-to-water ice bath (trunk mounted) have also been added.

If everything goes according to plan, this bad bowtie should produce nearly 1,000whp on the dyno. That’s quite an increase in performance. These guys at LMP really know their business.
