Arrow NEWS: GM Performance Parts let you build your own 700-hp Camaro

Filed under: Aftermarket, Performance, Chevrolet, GM

2010 Chevrolet NeSmith LS9 Camaro - Click above for high-res image gallery

It's that time of year, kids. Horsepower-crazy General Motors fans are anxiously dancing around their mailboxes waiting for the latest edition of the company's performance parts catalog to arrive. As with past years, the glossy pages are packed from margin to margin with everything you need to give your Bow Tie a little extra giddy up. For 2011, the catalog has fully embraced the Camaro, and a pair of dealer-tweaked versions of the Chevrolet muscle car show exactly what you can do with little more than a crate engine and some spare time.

DeNooyer Chevrolet in New York decided to plop an LSX454 in their orange Camaro, coupled to a six-speed manual transmission via the same clutch used in the mighty Corvette ZR-1. The car turns over 520 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels thanks to a tune-port fuel injection system.

But that's downright child's play compared to what the minds at NeSmith Chevrolet in Georgia cooked up. Those wrenches plopped an LS9 behind the Camaro's headlights. With minor tweaking, the supercharged V8 is kicking out right at 700 horsepower, and NeSmith threw in beefier axles and a Baer brake system to bring the whole party to a stop. Hit the jump to check out the press releases.

The NeSmith Camaro at the PRI show had an extra quarter panel stripe that made the car look even better!

Oh man. I really like how they stuffed the LS9 in there but didn't do anything besides some decals on the outside of the car. That is how I like it. That is a "sleeper" Camaro if I have ever seen one. It would surprise quite a few GT500 drivers I am sure

DeNooyer Chevrolet in Albany has been doing a lot of performance stuff lately. They even have been selling late model performance cars from Ford and Dodge. It is pretty cool to see so many hot American cars on one lot.
