Sounds awsome! But don't forget the tranny! The 6L80 is rated for only 430LB-ft. You will need to do some serious work here or you will be leaving a trail of parts down the pavement.

No worries Gib, I went with the stick so a clutch should be all I have to worry about (well, that and maybe the rear diff )

To put 800 HP in context, that is more power (quite a bit with the restrictor plates installed) than any of the NASCARs will have at Daytona this weekend. You could win the race with the Pace car if you took the speed governor off the Camaro.

Are you sure about that???
I thought they were making mid 800s w/o the plate and right at or just under w/.
Also, I'm willing to bet the LPE 800 makes a crapload more torque than any Nascar engine. N/A versus BOOST ... I reccomand buying stock in rubber either way. lol.

great packages, but ur paying for the name mostly. their packages for the vette are ridiculously expensive. you can do more for less money going aftermarket.

I wonder how many people said that about the COPO cars of the sixties. That they were too much money and they could do it cheaper. I would give my left nut for any COPO today. Not to say that anyone is wrong in their thinking, but just a thought after reading the replies.
Any time you have the skill to do it yourself it is a benefit and I love to build my own stuff for the pride of ownership an $ savings.

Cool stuff anyway

Probably, but you won't have a 3yr/36,000 mile warranty or the factory like streetablility that a Lingenfelter car has.

If I can hit the 500hp mark... without massive costs or changes.. I'll be happy as the day I get the car.

Lingenfelter stuff is good, but at $13,000.00 a little expensive. I spoke to Magna Charger and they are creating a kit for the new Camaro. It will add another 126HP to the already 426HP and at $6,000.00 just a little more reasonable.

That's not expensive. Your talking about hand built love. These are something beyond money it's artwork. It's not for (just) going around drag racing.. as funny as the video is.

Of course you could, but your not offering a warranty and putting your reputation on a product.

Ditto! What's wrong with everyone on here? complaining about the price! We talking up to 800 HP wrapped in some of the best-looking sheet metal on the road! and it's a chevy! Do your annoying ford friends complain about the price of a cobra?

Hell yeah, these camaros will be Awesome!

Your best bet is check Sizzox first post and sign up for the news letter, that should get the numbers and info your looking for.

Lingenfelter is actually not that expensive for what you get. My friend has a 2007 Z06 and got the 630 HP (I think) Lingenfelter treatment, either way it took 3 weeks and cost him about 12k. He ended up with a beautiful car that was gone through to perfect factory flaws and upgrade the fun factor by 10. I thought the car was fast as hell before but now it is really fast. If you figure that they number them also you are getting whatever upgrades you want in a limited edition series that will only add to the uniqeness and fun.
