Hot Rod pits Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 against '69 Red Devil
His latest project, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro lovingly dubbed "Red Devil," is the eleventh '69 he's built in the past 23 years. It boasts a 7.0-liter block from a Corvette Z06 topped with the heads, valvetrain and supercharger from the Corvette ZR1. An Eaton TVS blower shoves 12 psi into each combustion chamber, helping to generate 756 horsepower. The grunt is dumped to the rear wheels via Tremec six-speed.
Big numbers, but are they enough to help the Red Devil top its progeny, the Camaro ZL1? The guys at Hot Rod magazine decided to find out by pitting the cars against each other at Michigan's GingerMan Raceway. We won't spoil the results here, but we will say Stielow believes he laid down the quickest lap time at GingerMan for any new ZL1, even besting the efforts Automobile Magazine and their pro driver.
