Info

Camaro Motorsport is bringing a wide array of engine, body and suspension parts to Europe. Although still new on the European market, the Luxembourg based company has an enthusiastic follower with ex-Ferrari F1 driver Mika Salo. The Fin, preparing for next years NASCAR season in the United States, took delivery of his brand new Camaro with 6.2 V8, paddle shift 6 speed automatic and SC 600 Supercharger package. The explosive package leads to a performance increase from 400 hp and 557 Nm of torque to 600 hp and 747 Nm.

Salo's car is equipped with a Motorsport SC600 package and contains a supercharger, special air intake system, exhaust system, exhaust headers and Dyno fine tuning of the engine management. The supercharged package starts with the Motorsport SC550 hp at € 12.500,- excluding VAT, including installation and warranty. The SC600 package costs € 17.250,-.

To increase power from 400 hp to 600 hp, a TVS 2300 Supercharger (2,3 liter) is mounted under the bonnet, the same one as used for the new ZR1 Corvette. The four-lobe rotor has improved efficiency (less power to drive), cooler discharge temperatures and is much quieter. And it gets improved fuel consumption figures due to its internal bypass valve that uses less than 1,0 horsepower while cruising at 120 km/h on the Autobahn. The airconditioning uses more horsepower than the supercharger.

It is recommended to pair the supercharger with the Cold Air Intake & Cat Back exhaust system to boost up to approx. 580 hp. Mounting the new cat-back exhaust will lead to a head turning sound.

The Exhaust Headers lead to a powerful upgrade as well. They are worth 30hp without tune, and 50hp when combined with Dyno tuning. The are made from the highest quality stainless steel. Includes the headers, high- flow catalytic converters, and X-pipe.

The Cold Air Intake provides significantly more airflow and increases horsepower. The system retains all factory sensors so it won't cause any problems with the engine management. It comes with a washable and reusable filter element instructions and all the hardware for easy installation.

Camaro Motorsport can deliver high performance suspension and brake parts. Different springs and shocks lower the centre of gravity for better body control. Larger brake discs with 6-piston calipers provide excellent stopping power under all driving circumstances.
