Hell yeah, these camaros will be Awesome!
Do they still sell a Cobra? I can promise you it will cost you much more, vehicle MSRP+Lingenfelter treatment, to get to 800hp than it did for me to get my GT500 to 850hp.

im guessing... $8k - $19k... then probably something like $30k for the 800hp..

Congratulations? Did you not get my point about money being no object when you're talking about a 800 HP car? Or were you just trying to find a way to plug your mustang?

Anyway, you won't get a pat on the back from me. It will be exciting again when these cars are on the street whether you're in a camaro, challenger or mustang. i'm happy seeing some chevy tuners rising to the challenge, yeah!

I would like to see a twin turbo setup for the L99, LPE didn't happen to mention anything about that did they?

Seriously, 800hp? What in Gods name do you do with 800hp? I mean, thats one peddle push away from burying your new car in a hill, a house, or someones rear end. Don't get me wrong, that sounds awesome, but I think the 430hp is more than enough for tooling around. Am I getting old? I bet next I complain the music is too loud.

I'm in total disagreement with what Lingenfinger (however you spell his name) and Saleen are doing with the Camaro. To me it goes against everything the Camaro is. A Z/28 package is, at the most as radical as a Camaro should get. It's not a supercar. And I don't think that's a bad thing.

That's my two cents on this issue.

Hey if any of you guys own a PS3 i recommend getting Burnout Paradise if you haven't gotten it already. The game is ridiculously awesome, not only that but the 2010 Camaro is acutally in the game!!!

It's actually called the Carson GT but it's design is almost exactly the same as the 2010 Camaro. And its so much fun to drive in the game lol.

It would feel similar to having the jaws of life pull your heart out through your rectum, all bodily fluids (including your blood) gush simultaneously through every orifice you can imagine, getting falcon punched in your face and hurled at the speed of light through the earth's core only to be crushed between shifting tectonic plates. Yeah, that about what 800 horsepower feels like.

800hp is just crazy. It's turning the car into a nascar ... what are you gonna do with 800hp? Burn rubber, hit tracks? Then? I don'tfeel like buying new tires every month.

550 hp is enough to me

I'm really wondering how much that 550hp kit is going to be. Would be nice to put on after the factory warranty is up.

I've never heard of this guy, but then again, I have never had a performance car tuned by anyone. Is he pretty good and legit and would you guys recommend him as a well known tuner like Shelby and Roush for the mustangs? I know there was a thread about another tuner that alot of folks didnt care for. I think it was Hennesey (sp?). I'm hoping this guy is better. I dont need a 800hp car since i"ll never have a chance to use that much power (no race tracks here on Oahu), but I do love torque! I might think about one of the lesser hp packages.

I hard to guess range for the LPE upgrade to 550HP and body kit. Its a little over 100 HP jump. Also, its harder to say because we don't know all the other performance things they might add. It can be low as 5K for just HP or 20K for the whole kit and kaboodle.

But..based on a comparative analysis of the corvette on the website, I would guess 6K to10K with the HP, exhaust, and etc. Brakes, handling, performance, and etc. will make it go up. Too many options to decide.

Me too. BUT, I've never had a car to mod before, so I will definitely be adding an MPS 1900 to this eventually.

I must not have that car yet in the junkyard. I know I would have made the comparison. The game does have nice sound effects.

I also want to see how they work with the VVT and AFM to get this kind of power. Believe me I drove 700hp on the street almost ecery weekend and it spoiled me. I still miss that car.

The old saying still hold; "$peed co$t$, how fa$t do you really want to go?"
You can add on something else, "There will always be a market and there will always be some one fa$ter."

for that are wondering about the costs. This should give you some idea.

I wasn't asking why someone would want to do it, that's a given, but was simply pointing out that, IMHO, getting to 800+ HP in the Camaro is going to take considerably more $$ that it did for me to get to the same power level in my GT500.

As someone who will be modifying their Gen5 when I get one, this is an area of concern for me.
