Lingenfelter Chevrolet Camaro – Click above to watch video after the jump

The best thing about drag racing is that fast is never fast enough. After building a Chevrolet Camaro that comfortably waltzed down the quarter mile in under nine seconds, the crew at Lingenfelter are hell-bent on making the machine do the deed in even less time. As a result, the mad wrenches have worked up a 427-cubic-inch LSX engine with a pair of ported LS3 six-bolt heads. All projections have the mighty beating heart churning out somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,200 horsepower with the locomotive grunt getting channeled to the rear wheels via a TR6060 gearbox.

The company hasn't taken its new quarter-mile king to the track just yet, but it has been so kind as to slip the internet a peek at the machine on the dyno. According to the video after the jump, what you're seeing is a wide-open-throttle shift from third to fourth with both stages of nitrous in full glory. We're nearly positive that eons ago, this is why man tamed fire. Hit the jump to check out the action for yourself.

      So many of these tuning or so called manufacturers are concentrating on hp.
      I realize they lay down good times on slicks or drag radials, but the best cars in the world do it on regular street tires.

      The zo6 and gtr run 11's showroom floor stock with around 500hp.
      Even the cadillac cts v can pull off 11's on regular tires.

      IMO, stop worrying so much about the hp and concentrate on the chassis, hooking and handling.

      I'd buy a well rounded car before i'd buy a dyno queen that you can't maintain your lane with, that needs special rubber to be effective.

      The new boss is a perfect example of why manufacturers know best, they knocked quite a bit of time off the stock mustangs track and quarter time by adding a meisly 40hp and tweaking the suspension.
      Saleen and roush add 150hp and they can't make that happen.

        Despite the fact it driven on the street , weighs over 4000 lbs , has a full factory interior with required safety equipment for an 8 sec car, still has the irs ... Yadda yadda . Your obviously not getting that this is a race car that actively participates in the LSX shootouts . Its not a dyno queen and their not trying to spit out hero hp numbers . Why on earth would you bring up radial street tires pertaining to this car ? What autoblog failed to mention is on this dyno session lingenfelter is testing a pretty innovative force switch on the shifter for wot shifting on the straight cut geared tr6060.

      That torque system is nice! Wonder what the price tag is for the mods.....

        likely not as much as the resulting hospital bills, at least in the hands of an average person

      I think it's quickest, not fastest. Drag racing is about time, not speed-though this Camaro is probably fast too.

      .....and the LS motors, are still the best engines in the world. Sounds like a herd of angry castrated cats.
