Here’s Why the 2012 Camaro V6 Makes 11 More Horsepower

May 17, 2011

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro will feature 323 horsepower, or 11 more ponies than the 2011 model. Engineers were able to add extra power by allowing the high-tech mill to breathe better. To do this, intake airflow was improved by seven percent through extensive simulation and bench testing. As a result, power is up by 11 horsepower, while exhaust flow is improved by 10 percent. Engineers also manged to remove an incredible 13 pounds from the 3.6-liter by integrating the exhaust manifolds into the aluminum cylinder head. This change meant that a pair of old-school iron manifolds, 12 bolts, a pair of gasket and heat shields with six more bolts were eliminated.
