If you’re a Chevy Camaro
fan on a limited budget, chances are good there isn’t a Camaro ZL1
parked in your garage. In fact, you may not even be able to pay the monthly tab on a Camaro SS 1LE
, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your existing Camaro go faster, stop shorter or turn quicker.
On the other hand, maybe your budget is unlimited, and you’re looking to build the ultimate quarter-mile Camaro from the ground up. In either of these scenarios, the new Chevrolet Performance Catalog is out, and it’s filled with anything and everything you need to build a better Camaro.
In the words of Jim Campbell, G.M’s U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, “Whether you’re running on the street, drag strip or road course, Chevrolet Performance is the first stop for every Camaro builder.”
From the ZL1 parts bin, customers can order a serious brake package, including 14.6-inch front rotors, 14-inch rear rotors, and six-piston Brembo calipers. If you need to be absolutely certain your rear differential can hold up to your engine’s torque, the ZL1’s rear oily bits (differential housing, stronger axles, heavy-duty limited-slip differential) are also available.
If you want to make your existing Camaro SS faster around a racetrack, you can order up the track pack kit, which comes with larger stabilizer bars, a 3.91-ratio rear gear and a check valve that ensures the oil stays where it belongs under high-g cornering.
If you’re building a drag racer, virtually every component of the COPO Camaro
(including the body in white) is available from Chevrolet Performance. To ensure that you don’t see too many tail lights in the other lane, Chevy’s LSX376-15 crate engine is forced-induction ready, and capable of making up to 1,000 horsepower.
You’re safe in assuming that the Chevrolet Performance catalog includes parts for more than just Camaros, too. We told you yesterday about the brand’s plans to build a B-Spec kit for the Chevy Sonic
, and there is no shortage of parts to make your Corvette go faster, too.
