1200 HP, is that possible??

On the front page they were showing Nicky Chicago TT Camaro boasting 1200 hp. Is that possible??? Can the stock internals handle that or was that theoretical? I imagine that the car would at least have to be running 20 psi. I know my Supra engine can handle that but the LS3???

My 07 Z06 was pushing about 1300hp last year, but I was using an Iron Block LSX Engine. It's entirely possible he did it with an LS3, but would obviously need extensive bottom end work to handle the boost.

Do you have a link to this car?

qft ...was going to say the same thing


and again why? Why would you want to spin the tires everytime you drive all the time. Why not buy a dragster or a space shuttle with the amount of money you will spend

I'm a bit of a wrench head. I just got my hands on a 95 Supra TT, which is capable of quite a bit of power...Then the Camaro finally comes out, and damn. Now I find my self in the dilema of weather or not to switch. The Supra is attractive due to the potential for HP (I was shooting for around 600). Now if the Camaro makes it's self available to that type of HP it adds one more thing to my will I or wont I list.

Man I am a Toyota fan myself but a 95 Supra is not a Camaro.

Just not even close. There is a lot more to a car than raw power.

Umm vash, i owned a toyota supra for 3 years (1993 TT) and not to be mean, but what are you talking about?

Supras are much more than just raw power. They having breaking, turning, and everything needed for a sports car. You cannot diss a car like that if you dont even own one. The Supra is one car that will be timeless and always worth alot. Most supras out there will beat 99% of these camaros right now in every category.

But i love my camaro!

1200 hp is definitely NOT a stock longblock LS engine. It will need forged pistons, rods, and maybe even a forged crank. Then you figure head studs, better head gaskets, aftermarket cylinder head castings, etc...

In other words, not cheap. Possible? Hell yes. LS series engines have pushed 2,000 hp before with the right set of turbos and built engine.

Damn. So the block can handle it, just not the internals. Anyone know how much boost a stock block can handle and what the HP gain would be?

To true. I was just curious how friendly this car was to modding. I guess it's probably to early for anyone to really know.

So far I can say the 2010 Camaro is VERY mod-able

Renting something like this to leave, say, your wedding with a massive burnout would be awesome. One of my big regrets is not leaving my wedding with a burnout in my 1970 Olds Cutlass. Then again, a burnout in that thing would either blow a tire or break something, and that would be embarrassing.

Some would have done the burnout before the wedding and high tailed it out of there

Uh...........

The internals and the motor itself is what makes the power. So if the motor is putting out 1200 hp. Then yes it can handle it. As far as the stock internals, if it is making 1200 then there are likely forged internals.

I would have imagined this was the case. I just wasn't sure since the 2JZ internals can handle up wards 800 to 1000 hp. I would have been really shocked if GM made their engines just as bullet proof. However if they did just so happen to design their engine that way....

The stock internals will be happy and healthy up to 650 crank HP - after that it will require a better crank, rods and pistons. This is the best insurance you will get. If anyone wants to push the stock stuff over 650 which it can do for a short period of time - you are doing just that - living on borrowed time

I would agree the 2JZ in stock form gives you a better starting point. IN fact we built a twin turbo kit in partnership with Toyota for a Lexas project and they insisted teh stock 4.5 V8 was good to 1000hp. in the end we made 983hp at 6500 and 874 ft/lbs at 4850

IMO With power like that you should have a pro race team. Or your gonna wind up getting hurt and or destroying the vehicle.

I am sorry but a overpowered Toyota simply does not give you the tools you need to safely maintain and operate a vehicle with that much power. At some point the fantasy of raw power and speed passes a sanity point in a thin scope of a personal street rod.
