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.

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.

GM really came through and made available 95% of the things I wanted on my mod list. I just hope my wait to get these bought and installed doesn't take as long as it took for me to be able to get my 1LE. I'm sure GM will be ready before I am. Something to look forward to. I don't want to speculate on price but I think the suspension package will be out of my range. A very nice setup. Mark Dickens stated at the reveal that they fitted the Z/28 suspension to a 1LE and it performed very well. He didn't say where or give any numbers but that would be awesome to see in video to see the capability.

Price will be the determining factor for the majority here, myself included.

If we look at what GMPP has done with the ZL1 brake packages that may be an indicator of what is to come...big $$$$. I am all for them making a profit, but when individual parts can be pieced together for less than their total package it makes no sense.

The aftermarket does a good job of supplying alternatives to OEM parts....Now the same R&D and testing is not applied in the aftermarket, but if the price point for OEM surpasses that of quality aftermarket pieces most consumers will look to the aftermarket.

My predictions: (no basis, just guesses)

Intake: $500 (Too many proven alternatives to set the price any higher)
Z/28 Suspension Package: $3500 (Good coil overs can be had at this price)
Recaro Z/28 seats: $1799 each (No competition for a seat with airbags, but race minded individuals can get a good Recaro race seat installed for less)
Z/28 Manifolds: $750 (again, too much competition out there to price them any higher and expect them to sell.)

Matt

Wonder if it is the same way that Ford does it for certain Ford racing parts. there were certain parts you could buy from Ford racing and as long as a dealer installed them your warranty stayed in tact

GM is restricting many individual Z/28 parts - see Camaro Performers link:
http://www.camaroperformers.com/news...ts-restricted/

Restricted parts include the "flow-tie"...
