Anyone got $30,000 i can borrow to buy the car, and $40,000 to have to do the twin turbo kit and motor build he offers. I know that kit for the corvette is bonkers.

I don't think that's true at all. If you want to have somebody else do it for you with a fancy name and whatever premium they feel like charging, then of course it will. Since I assume you're a guy who might like some more "do it yourself" I wouldn't be surprised if you spend considerably less on the Camaro. I mean, you already have a $10k (or more) head start

OK ... you got me on the warrantee but ... I beg to differ with you on the "streetability". Thats what I do for a living. Tune cars like this. And as for the warrantee, I dont have any doubt that my engine will be still singing sweetly after 3 years or 36,000 miles I know, its not for everyone, but I cant wait to come up along side an LPE car and dust it. LOL.

The LPE package will be around $10k-$11k considering the Vette package is $13k with a new hood painted.

The Warhawk block is close to $5k alone, so I kinda doubt you will build it for less than $10k to $11k. That doesn't include your own time either.

Ummmmm ... the 800HP option is NOT $10-11K ... try 3 times that.

Sadly, the MODs don't ban trolls. And...I don't think you are even thinking of getting one.

This would be the truth. Ford parts have ALWAYS historically been higher than Chevy or Dodge. Ford makes the Mustang butt ugly and with nothing so they can sell all their aftermarket crap for big bucks. They have always done that.

Seeing as I have almost as many posts as you do on this board, I could hardly be considered a troll. As for not getting one, time will prove that one out.

Yup ... can't wait!!

I don't think post counts = content. There is a certain 13 yo on this site that has over 1k in one month. Just sayin....

Seems like you're always "just sayin". When it comes to this forum, I sit somewhere inbetween the people who think the Camaro is going to be God's gift to the ponycar segment and those that feel that the Mustang is a piece of crap. It's obvious that my lack of loyalty to any one brand or model and objective point of view about both the Camaro and Mustang bother you. Sorry, but you need to get over it and move on.

Your not going to go 800hp with that Warhawk unless you go FI. Waht is your target hp and how are you getting there so we can do a real comparison???

Uh ... already been there, done that & got the t-shirt. Made over 900 Normally Aspriated on the last one. (have another almost done & ready to go on the dyno next week. Should make 950 or so NA. Stop by and check it out if you want to) BUT the Camaro will not be that outrageous. That was a "race only" engine. This one will be a pump gas 900FWHP from one of my "already proven" combinations thank you. It should put down 700RWHP through the stick and be daily drivable w/ pleasant idle quality. LOL. Already done it to a few Vettes. This one will use an F1 Pro-Charger. Using twin turbos, 1000RWHP is easily attainable on pump gas if you know what you're doing (again, been there & done that, old news)

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with LPE, just that I aint spendin $40K for something I can do for less than HALF and make MORE power. Thats all.

I am a strong supporter of Lingenfelter. I have an L.P.E. Z06 and multiple people in my family use their packages and products. I could not be happier. They take the time to tune their cars greatly and if you want to make your beast sing they will do it for you. These packages are able to make way more horsepower they dont maximize so that the cars have great street characteristics and "hook". I am either ripping putting in a new LSX engine or letting LPE get ahold of my new SS. As far as the warranty goes with them there is some fine print...but I can personally testify that they will take care of you. My current vette has not had any problems I have the 660hp package andI had them add some more items. I drive it hard track it hard and no problems and I still get great gas mileage. My previous vette had an issue and they took care of it right away. Not only are you paying for a name but you are paying for years and years of knowledge and excellent customer service and that is worth it to me.

WOW! that sounds pretty reasonable for LPE. I have known many people that have spent a crapload more than that there and results have varied. If you are not mechanically inclined, I suppose it is a good alternative. I do this stuff for a living, so I just cant justify paying someone else

We have a long relationship with them..I feel you on the tooling on them yourself. Honsetly I will work on anything from the late 60' early 70's etc..but the newer things with the computers etc..i kind of shy away from...lol

Just asking for opinions for the Lingenfelter Camaro

Just wanted to get some insight from the community. I have been going over the specs for the Camaro SS and the engine packages from Lingenfelter. Now I can see doing 650hp. But with the arrow dynamics of the car, even with a modified suspension and wheels and so fourth. Doses any one think the car will be capable of handling over 800hp from a twin turbo LS7. Now by no means am I getting down on the engineering of GM or Lingenfelter, but IMO there are goals that are realistic and then there are goals that are attainable but may not be the best option. I know the ZR1 trumped the Nissan GTR in a test conducted and came out on top. But you cant compare the camaro to the ZR1, you just cant. you have a company that is seriously talking about modifying a camaro to out do the fastest and most powerful sorts car to ever come off of any GM assembly line to my knowledge. Now if i am missing something and if so can someone please enlighten me so I will be better informed here. All things considered if Lingenfelter does pull this off and there is going to be a camaro that can slap the ZR1 around like a red headed step child then sign me up.
