10 second car

Im getting ready to ship out for the Air Force and after tech school Im gonna buy a black on black SS/RS with hurst shifter. Now from what I read you guys are pretty smart and I was wondering if you could tell me what i would need to make this a 10 second car and keep it streetable.

Are you going to remove weight or is most everything staying on the car?

After Tech School and when you finish your CDCs and get that big bonus come back here... there will probably be a few good examples already built. LS7 engine for starters.

Keeping it basically stock looking and getting into the 10's will require IMMENSE horsepower! Best bet would be to get an auto tranny model(with the tranny made bulletproof)and then either do major mods to the engine along with a turbo setup, or drop in another engine set up to take big boost with a turbo. You're going to need a good 700-800 RWHP to get it done with a stock style car with just drag radials on for tires.

I guess my first question is why do you want it to be a 10 second car? once we know that and a few other questions we can help you build a path...

Is money a factor?
Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
do you want to keep it naturally aspirated?

If you're going to keep everything on your car, then you can figure a curb weight around 3900lbs plus whatever you might weigh. I don't know you, but let's be conservative and say 160. That's a race weight of 4060.

At that weight, you will need around 700hp at the flywheel to get the car into the 10's if you are an average driver; maybe less if you have ideal racing conditions and are an experienced driver.

throw an LS9 in there and call it a day. but of course build up the rest of the car while you are at it.

Realize your throwing away your powertrain warranty.

Someone has been watching TV movies (Vin Diesel claiming his dad's car runs 10's).

I want a really fast car that i can take to the track and beat some mustangs and then drive home

money is not a factor Im gonna inherit a couple million from my grandparents

I plan on letting pros do it even though Im nearly capable of doing it myself

I want to supercharge it I dont know what supercharger thought i havent checked

I know Im throwing away my warrant and Vin Diesel is not my inspiration to do this

LS9 alone would not do it. It makes what, 638hp at the flywheel? If it can only get the ZR1 in the low 11's, it's sure not going to put a Camaro in the 10's.

Okay, I'm out of this thread. I thouht we were dealing with someone who actually wanted to get his Camaro into the 10's, not some kid with dreams of granduer.

Money is not a factor ok then this should be easy for you Techo is coming out with a 3.0L TS SC for the Camaro. If you want to use the stock motor find a good engine builder pull the motor have it rebuilt with after market rods, pistons 8.5 or 9.0 cr (crank if needed) you could will be able to do it on stock heads and cams but your option to go with cams and ported heads talk to the engine builder you decide on. Throw a Techco sc and you will have a car that will run 10's.
