More than just its tremendous peak horsepower and torque numbers, the supercharged LS9 makes big power at lower rpm and carries it in a wide arc to 6,600 rpm. GM Powertrain testing shows the engine makes approximately 300 horsepower (224 kW) at 3,000 rpm and nearly 320 lb.-ft. of torque (434 Nm) at only 1,000 rpm. Torque tops 585 lb.-ft. (793 Nm) at about the 4,000-rpm mark, while horsepower peaks at 6,500 rpm. The engine produces 90 percent of peak torque from 2,600 rpm to 6,000 rpm.
I want to see a dyno chart for this thing. At idle it makes more power and torque than most cars
To the Viper, and every other performance car for under 300k:

Oh, the LS9 is being built at the same place where the LS7 is built.

No, we won't be building it although we did run all the protypes in the machining process. I don't know if we will be doing the machining for it but I do know it will be assembled in Wixom where the LS7 is now built. Heck of an engine!!

Hmmm, I wonder if by 3whiterag posting this he is trying to hint something as well as give us info on this amazing engine?? It did say "The LS9 represents the first of several new, supercharged small-block engines that will be introduced in GM vehicles in the near future, each using superchargers of similar design."

A possible supercharged engine to follow for the Camaro??

Edit: Changed whiterag to 3whiterag*

WoW this is awsome!!! Though I doubt this ever making it into the Camaro out the gate, maybe the compartment will be big enough for us to drop one in!

Cheers!!

I'm sure it would be easy to drop one in. The block would likely be the same size, or close to it, of the stock V8's block. I'm sure you'd need a taller cowl on the hood though, as it looks like the ZR1's is taller than the Concept Camaro's.

True, but the Corvette's hood is 'low' normally. I'm thinking that with the concept's cowl - there'll be an abundance of space over the normal block to work with.

Yeah, only thing I'm kind of thinking about now is.. Other exotic sports cars may say "Oh the Corvette has to have a super charger to compete with us." Meh.
