Thumbs up GM Hi-Tech Performance reviews Fastlane's 2010 Camaro SS, which runs 10.86 at 127 mph

Fastlane's 2010 Chevy Camaro SS - The 2010 Camaro Champion

Just A Few Pounds Of Boost Equals A Year's Worth Of Bragging Rights For Fastlane Inc.

April, 2010
By Justin Cesler
Photography by Stephen Kim

As I stood atop the media tower at Memphis Motorsports Park, I couldn't help but listen in on a group of bench racers standing nearby. As each car came under the tunnel, someone in the group would comment on how fast it would be or how much they liked it, you know, the normal trackside banter. Just as the black Fastlane 2010 Camaro pulled past the water box I heard "You know, these new Camaros are too heavy to be fast. They take too much power to go anywhere; plus, this one looks like a roller skate with that GM body kit." Admittedly, at idle, the Fastlane car doesn't sound like much. In fact, thanks to what is under the hood, it was probably the quietest 2010 on the grounds. As the light turned green, with a calm, somewhat boring launch, it took off. For the first 200 feet, my bench racer friends remained unimpressed. "You can't go fast on a 20-inch wheel," they said. "You can't run with a fourth-gen in one of those, not with the IRS," one of them murmured. But then, about 300 feet out, everyone got quiet. Right as Nick Field of Fastlane really started applying power, the 2010 began accelerating at warp speed. Out the back door, it ran a 10.86 at 127 mph. The crowd went wild and my newly humbled friends got very quiet.

Nick Field would go on to pilot Sean West's Camaro to the top of the 2010 Camaro Shootout that weekend, making it the fastest fifth-gen in Memphis and winning them an LSX block, an LSX jacket, and an entire year's worth of bragging rights. So, what did it take to get them to the top? Quite honestly, not much, just a quality plan, a couple of well thought-out parts, and an eye on making useable, reliable horsepower without breaking parts or spinning tires. "We built this simply to compete in the Shootout." Starting with a stock Camaro, Fastlane first had to decide on an appropriate power adder, a choice that was fairly simple considering its expertise in turbocharging. "We build our Fastlane ZL1 turbo kit for stock motors, providing GM reliability and big-block power." The heart of this system is a 72mm BorgWarner extended-tip turbocharger, which helps make a massive amount of power on the otherwise stock engine.

Maybe I missed it, but what were the power numbers and weight of the car, with driver? Awesome piece of machinery in any case.

Nice read .. I was wondering the same .. I don't see any mention of it in the article.

EDIT .. just found this on youtube:

Fastlane's 2010 Camaro SS ZL1 set's the stage for the most powerful Camaro yet! Putting down 658 RWHP and an amazing 770 RWTQ! Check it out on the Dyno and on the Road!



Maybe the same car or at least same package? I think so :


I hate how heavy these cars are .. LOL .. I'm guessing limited traction in the beginning or that thing would have gone much faster!!!

thats the good thing about a turbo, it allows for a better start with less wheel spin before the turbo kicks in.

So the stock engine can handle some boost safely. what psi was that car running?

I hope he had wheelspin or I'm dissapointed in that MPH at that HP level :(

It's a great article! "You can't go fast on a 20-inch wheel," they said.

All I have to say is WOW. I've mentioned this is previous "vs" topics, this car is godly, and nearly everything is STOCK, and it's an L99. This same package can be purchased from Fastlane at only $9,000.00(labor already included).

It's an amazing car, and you get that type of performance for that much? Instead of just buying a supercharger for 8,000, I'll just pay 9,000 for they're package and get so much more! Everyone is all shocked and amazed at the car, but I've been preaching on this car since way back, when Mustang owners were saying "it'll cost you more to mod that car up to a GT500s performance",...actually, if you bought a 1SS, or even a 2SS, you can get this package from FASTLANE for 9,000 flat and get a car that eats the GT500 and still come out with less out of pocket and most parts are still stock.

And the best part, it can be daily driven without problems! Way to go FASTLANE,....now that's performance.

Just a word about the FASTLANE guys. I have been to their facility, talked about the package for my 2SS/RS and just want to say that they could not be a nicer or humble bunch of guys. If you have questions and are able to go see them, they will take you on a tour with no pressure what so ever. Very Impressed.

I may be changing my mind about turbos.... I guess that is why the pro-charger systems are so popular.. interesting, verrrry interesting!

As the turbo spools, power is transferred to a Circle D 3,000-stall converter, which is the only part of the drivetrain that has been touched. That's right, from the converter back; everything is stock-including the driveshaft,

Are there any other mods needed or a price differance when puttintg this in a SS with the manual trans...

Yeah I read that article & was amazed @ how little of modifications were done to make the car run 10s with stock drivability. On 20's @ that. Just think what it will run with drag lites.
