Lingenfelter Supercharged LS9 Camaro Running Low 10's

Featured on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.

Check out the visible power that's being put to those rear wheels!

Lingenfelter’s Supercharged LS9 Camaro Running In The Low 10’s Consistently

by Chris Taylor on July 15, 2010

The L99 and LS3-powered Camaro’s are pretty buff in their own right, but there’s no denying the supercharged LS9 engine package in the Corvette ZR1 is packing a heavier punch. When Lingenfelter was looking for an engine to build on for their own showcase car, an LS9 was selected. With the addition of headers, some serious head porting and in-house produced supercharger upgrades, the car was now putting down a much improved 855 horsepower, all being done with the stock crankshaft and rods in place. Some good numbers, but can it put it down come race-day? Lingenfelter has brought it out to the track a few times this year to answer that very question, and improvements are being made with each and every run.

In its first race of the year during Camaro5Fest in Valdosta,GA back in April, Lingenfelter managed to get the car down the track with a 10.36 at 139mph. Not too shabby for a first time out, but we know there’s plenty of E/T still on the table. After a little more seat-time yanking gears on a TR6060 manual transmission, they most recently brought the car back out to Muncie Drag Strip for some new numbers. The MPH dropped from their first runs down to 137, a new personal best E/T was in order as their best of the day was a 10.23, progress at last. Checkout Lingenfelter’s website for more on the car’s most recent runs.

In the words of owner Ken Lingenfelter, “This specially prepared Camaro SS – which boasts the Lingenfelter ZR1 LS9 engine, several Lingenfelter ZR1 supercharger upgrades and a TR6060 manual transmission – is our latest project vehicle to showcase more than 30 years of performance engineering experience.” I’ve got a hunch this is one of his most enjoyable builds in quite some time, and rightfully so. Time to get this beast into the 9’s!

I saw this car at the Fest and you could tell it needed a few adjustments. I would love to see this car get into the 9's.

Based on what we saw at Camaro5Fest, I think 9's are totally possible.

I would hope it can get into the nines! It has 885 hp. Hell, My little turd only puts down 550 and with the converter and gears itll be around 10.5ish. Plus that bad boy has to cost $$$$$$$. Mine only costs $$ or about 15k + the car. Nevertheless, it must be pretty crazy to drive.

I don't think that lmr car is still an l99. Even if it's the stock block, which I can't remember if it is, I would bet they did the ls3 conversion.

I think 15k is on the low side of the scale with most of the heavy hitters on this site.

The car has plenty of mph for 9's. The car is still very heavy. It's a lot harder trying to hook a high hp car especially with it being a 6 speed. It makes it a disadvantage. Put a glide or Turbo 400 with a decent stall and that et will drop 5-7 tenths.

Plus I forgot to add they are still running the IRS. Not good for drag racing.
It needs a straight axle setup.
