Thumbs up Z/28 Upgrade Packages Available for Standard Camaros This Summer

Official Chevy announcement:


Camaro Z/28 Components Available from Chevrolet Performance this Summer

HOUSTON – Beginning this summer, Chevrolet Performance will offer nine Camaro upgrade packages, each featuring components from the all-new Z/28. Each package has been validated for use in most model year 2010 and later Camaros. Many of the parts preserve the vehicle warranty when installed by a Chevrolet dealer – an advantage aftermarket installers cannot provide.

Combined with existing upgrade packages offering components from the Camaro ZL1 and Camaro 1LE models, Chevrolet Performance now offers a comprehensive line of performance upgrades for the track, the drag strip and the street.

“We have taken some of the very best components of our track-capable Camaros –and packaged them together for easy installation on other fifth-generation Camaros,” said Mark Dickens, director, Chevrolet Performance Engineering. “Each package gives customers the performance upgrades they want, and the peace of mind knowing each part has been engineered and tested to the same specifications as our production cars.”

The nine packages include:

• Camaro Z/28 Suspension – The kit includes front and rear spool-valve dampers, springs, and stabilizer bars; front ride/handling links; and rear upper control arms and trailing links.
• Rear Differential Cooling System – This kit includes the rear-differential cover, integrated heat exchanger, and all cooling lines and fasteners. On the Camaro Z/28, this system reduced the temperature of the differential fluid by 100 degrees Fahrenheit – and is ideal for track usage.
• Recaro Sport Seats – Compatible with 2012 and later Camaros, the Recaro front seats feature more pronounced side bolstering – ideal for performance driving. The driver and passenger seats are offered individually, and feature manual adjustment for reduced weight.
• Z/28 Cold Air Intake – This kit includes the full air induction system, including a K&N high-performance air filter and cold-air intake box assembly for improved engine power and cooling.
• Camaro Z/28 Exhaust Manifolds – This kit includes dual, hydroformed “tri-Y” headers from the 7.0L LS7 engine, offering increased airflow for other LS-series V8 engines.
• Camaro Z/28 LS7 Exhaust system – This includes the cat-back exhaust system from the Camaro Z/28. For an additional $150, an adapter kit is also available to join the 2.75-in diameter Camaro Z/28 system to the 2.5-in diameter LS3 exhausts.
• Camaro Z/28 Aerodynamics Package – Compatible with 2014 model and later Camaros, this package includes four components that contribute to the aerodynamic performance of the Z/28: front splitter, front wheel-lip extensions, underbody belly pan, and rear spoiler.
• Camaro Z/28 Brake Ducts – Compatible with 2014 model and later Camaros, this package includes the front-fascia opening and ducting to direct cooling air to the front brake rotors to increase braking performance for track use.
• Camaro Z/28 Helical Differential – This kit includes a zero-preload limited-slip differential with helical gears rather than traditional clutch packs. By continuously adjusting the torque bias, this differential maximizes available traction for faster lap times. The kit also includes the 3.91 axel ratio and integrated heat exchanger in the cover.

More information about the packages, including final pricing and vehicle fitment, will be available this summer at www.Chevrolet.com/Performance. Package will be available for sale directly through authorized Chevrolet dealers.

“The Z/28 is the most track-capable Camaro we have ever produced,” said Dickens. “With these packages, customers can buy some of the Z/28 performance hardware to improve their own track capabilities.”

I'm in for these 2:
•Z/28 Cold Air Intake – This kit includes the full air induction system, including a K&N high-performance air filter and cold-air intake box assembly for improved engine power and cooling.
•Camaro Z/28 Exhaust Manifolds – This kit includes dual, hydroformed “tri-Y” headers from the 7.0L LS7 engine, offering increased airflow for other LS-series V8 engines.

Any thoughts on HP gains from these items?

I would be for those as well.
They'll work hand in hand.

Are the break ducts similar to the ZL1 that dump air near the brakes or do they pump air through dict all the way to the rotor like those doing custom aftermarkts ducts.

Also curious on the manifold gains.

This really interest me. Any Idea when these will be available.

Only front wheel lip extensions, I actually noticed the rear 11.5" wide rims still looked as though they didn't require wider fender extensions.

why bother with the big heavy CAI when the aftermarket has it down pat?.. and the manifolds still looked way more restrictive than a true header setup. I saw them in person I seriously doubt they will make any power vs a real long tube setup.

But they imply you can do these and keep your warranty.....if that's important to you.

The Intake about 15, the header alone about 10 but coupled with HF cats 25 to 40.

Gains will be made on the TQ curve. The LS7 in the Z06 makes 470TQ while the LS7 with the new headers makes 481Tq in the Z28.
