2010 Lingenfelter 570 HP Camaro
Power: 570 hp, 570 lb-ft of torque
Availability: Package can be added to any 2010 Camaro SS.
Lingenfelter has been in the business of tuning General Motors vehicles for more than 30 years, which includes a storied past of racing and building fast cars. Based in Decatur, Indiana, Lingenfelter will make just about any GM product faster than it was when it left the showroom floor.
While many other Camaro tuners add fancy wheels, embroidered headrests, and door sill plates to inflate their package prices, Lingenfelter keeps things simple. Every bit of additional equipment involved in its package has a performance purpose.
A Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger system is bolted onto the 6.2-liter V-8, but Lingenfelter takes extra steps as well, to coax more power and ensure reliability. For instance, the fuel system gets a complete overhaul with new high-flow injectors and a fuel-pump voltage booster. A high-flow air intake and an upgraded thermostat are included as well. Despite its minimalist approach, Lingenfelter is able to coax the LS3 to produce a staggering 570 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque.
Should you decide additional equipment is a must, Lingenfelter offers a laundry list of options. A cat-back exhaust is available for an extra $1749, including installation. An optional hood with a ZR1-style window can be had for $1349, along with a new front bumper and splitter. An optional suspension package includes new springs, adjustable anti-roll bars, polyurethane bushings, and a chassis brace. Brembo brakes, further engine upgrades, and several wheel options are available also.
Camaro SS owners will need to transport their cars to the shop in Indiana for installation. Lingenfelter needs just one week to complete the job, though one thing to keep in mind before taking the leap is that the car won't pass emissions tests in California after the install.
