I would call it the Camaro GT600 since it is around 600 crank HP ..

So with baselines of 378 at the wheels and 426 at the crank, assuming the same % drivetrain loss, that works out to be 597hp. Work on that tune to get it up to an even 600 hp!!!

Yes I know dynos are just tools for tuning and internet racing but pretty cool nonetheless.

That Corsa sounded different than what I expected. I thought it was going to sound like the C6 exhaust.

Wow! Now those are some numbers! That'll beat a GT500, and you'll save a couple thousand. But how do you guys think this will affect the MPG?

If you can keep your foot out of it, it might actually improve MPG...

But with the TVS2300 on there, keeping your foot out of the firewall is asking a lot.

I have one question, why is the engine moving around so much? Are the motor mounts loose or something? That doesn't look normal to me.

Chevy seems to be pretty anal about reducing interior noise and vibrations based on all the reviews so far. No doubt one of the key contributers to NVH reduction is squishy motor mounts.

What would you need to get to stop the engine from rocking like that?

Yeah, you keep believing that.

I don't know how they teach math where you come from, but an unpolished blower alone is going to cost you, according to their site, $6800. (If you want the polished one in the video, fork over $7500). On top of that, this car has:

Corsa Exhuast System: $1450
CAI System: $395
Tune: $75?

If you just add up the unpolished blower, CAI and exhaust, your looking at $8600, not counting any labor or install costs.

Still, that's not a bad price for the power it makes.

You can use "Solid" engine mount, but man you feel the vibration and every time the AC comes on, it's like you got kicked from behind. This rocking WILL break the engine mount soon or later.

This is very true, but i'm willing to bet there will be a much cheaper CAI available in the near future, probably a better design than the Hennessey, too. And there will be cheaper exhausts than $1450 that will accomplish the same thing. But yes, it's definitely more than $7000 to get those numbers.
