I posted this elsewhere, but Roush makes the least popular superchargers for the current mustang

They aren't as efficient as other supercharger offerings and have limited potential to increase boost down the road.

The ROUSHchargers are usually roots style superchargers, not a twin screw like the Kenne Bell or Saleen setups.

Knowing this, I don't know if the ROUSHcharger for GM vehicles will really be any better. I'm sure there is nothing wrong with them fundamentally, but I think there will be better options for the Camaro.

I stand corrected(at least about roush). That is some very exciting news becuase Roush parts are affordable and highly touted throughout the muscle car industry. Im psyched! :-0

It would be awesome to have all the elite car tuners work with the Camaro but I don't want to see 38 different special editions like they did with the mustang. I get so sick of each week hearing about a new mustang powerhouse edition.

I think the big advantage to this is the association of the names with GM than the actual (possible) expansion of either Rousch or Saleen into GM.

If huge names like that are tossing aorund the idea, than the smaller aftermarket companies COULD also get excited and hop onto the virtual bandwagon.

In other words, more options and sooner after release for the Camaro.

Just my $0.02

CC: What future projects?


Saleen: Well the Camaro project is one of them, I've watched from a distance while they've been putting the production model together. I think it would be foolish on our part if we didn't get a part of that action (Steve laughs).


CC: So are you going to do your own versions of the new Camaro?


Saleen: It's not legally official right now, but that's what we're hoping for.


CC: What kind of upgrades will you make, have you seen the engine GM is using in the Camaro?


Saleen: I hope I don't get in trouble with GM for saying this, but they're using a 6.2 liter 450 horsepower engine for the premium V8 in the 2009 Camaro and the base Corvette. The base V8 will probably be a detuned version of the same 6.2. So we'll just upgrade the 6.2 liter V8 to Saleen level specifications. We're going to upgrade the 6.2 liter V8 if we're given the legal chance by GM. Our base model should have around 485 horsepower, and expect our Extreme Supercharged Camaro to have over 600 horsepower.



I dont know if it is old news,i havnt heard about it.Im getting more excited about the Camaro,supposevly the SS camaro is going to have 550hp S/C hopefully is true.
i hope this news will help i think this is old news ? what do you guys think about this info?

I didn't think they did 'special editions', they just do body kits/hoods you can add yourself. It's not like a 'Cervini Edition' or anything.
check them out you can now send them your car and they will make a "c-500" or something like that looks just like a modern day Elanor. super charger all sorts of shit.

Your link. (If you read through the whole thing, yes...I was wrong about the engine info being false. My apologies.)

No prob at all. Since everyone was talking Roush and now it started to turn to Saleen, I figured why not toss that in there. Ya'll can read on that stuff too.
