Question 700hp!! How?

I was wondering if any one could tell me how i can get my camaro LS3 up to or around 700hp or more? I do Know that I most likley will have to have a supercharger and what else? My cousin is getting a mustang 500gt but the dealership said they can give it around 700hp. My cousin is a big ford fan and i want to blow him out of the water with my camaro!

You can make a ton of horsepower but if you are not hooking it doesnt matter also work on your driving skills...now are you talking about 700 at the rear wheel or at the engine?

There are quite a few speed shops on the forums here that are doing some big hp packages. I have the Lingenfelter 570hp package but they have higher hp options available. Check this link out. LPE did a great job on my car!

I figured it would! Seriously what all does it take to get it to 700hp with out it falling apart on me. I know its possible if ford dealership can make a mustang 700hp under warranty why cant i make my camaro 700hp and forget the warranty would i be better of to buy the 700hp camaro from Hennessey?

Go to the Lingenfelter page and have a look at the packages. The 750hp LS7 package runs almost $50k though...

700 HP will cost $$$ - you will need to upgrade almost everything under the hood.
as others pointed out, you would need lingenfelter to get some kind of warranty (3 yr 36K) and it is not cheap.

Start with an LS7, add a supercharger with 10 PSI+, and replace all of the internals in the engine with top quality parts.

Same for the mustang.. if the Mustang dealer says that they can give you 700 HP without charging more than $30K, they are lying to you. The GT500 with the best of everything is ~500 HP and already supercharged and already has everything internal in the engine upgraded.

the top of the line ZR1 vette is only 632 HP and has very little to improve, as most parts are top shelf already. The price is at least $110K for that car.

You get what you pay for. If 700 HP was cheap we all would have that much and more.
I'll be happy with 570 HP, and a warranty from Lingenfelter. I will concentrate on the rest of the car (suspension, tires/wheels, lightening, wide body kit) and then come back to the engine when it expires - many years from now.

All these are over 600rwhp (the twisted slayer at 7psi), 700hp flywheel and really are "fairly affordable"...vs what hennessey or LPE would charge you.

Especially if you do the work (or at least some of it), yourself.

To answer your question;

Pull then engine, replace rods and pistons Lower compression, port cylinder heads install larger cam, Magnacharger or New Vortech kit set at 20 psi, larger injectors, larger fuel pump, or fuel pump voltage booster, Custom Dyno tune, Monster clutch, cat back exhaust, Big Sticky Tires.

This should easily put down 700 RWHP.

Ted.

Ok im a bit confused im getting some people telling me that ill have to spend close to 30k if not more to get my car up to 700hp and others are telling me i can get 700hp for around 10k. JTinFL? with your turbo mod your saying i can get around 700hp? what about Engine wear? Am i going to have to upgrade alot of the engine componets in order to run the turbo with out fear of my motor blowing up? Im no expert but i would think i would have to upgrade to forged parts?
