Lingenfelter has already posted a sub-9 second run in a modified Camaro. But that's not enough for the company, which is gunning to better that time with an LS9 Camaro that now makes 1,200 horsepower at the rear wheels.

Upgrades over the eight-second Camaro include a race suspension, transmission upgrades, and a torque-cut module. Power comes from a 427 cubic-inch LSX engine with CNC ported LS3 six-bolt cylinder heads. A TR6060 transmission gets that power to the ground.

In the video below, the car is shown during dyno testing at wide-open throttle during the 3-4 upshift during both stages of nitrous. It's a nice tease for what Lingenfelter has planned for this weekend, which is to hit the drag strip at Firebird International Raceway in Phoenix during Camaro5Fest, which takes place from April 14-17.

The goal is to better the previous time, and Lingenfelter will also announce a new engine and vehicle package.
