Muscle cars and drag racing are about as intertwined as any vehicle and a form of motorsport. And while all of Detroit’s automakers will gladly sell you their take on the segment, these stock cars simply don’t cut it for drag-racing die-hards. That was the case for the owner of this particular Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which was sent to Vengeance Racing in Cumming, Georgia. With a little help from Whipple Superchargers, this Chevrolet puts down a nearly 900 horsepower at the tires. Here is what you need to know about this build.
Vengeance Racing specializes in building high-performance late model muscle cars powered by GM V8 engines. This particular Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 had been previously fiddled with by the team, during which time it received their upgraded LT4 Supercharged Package. The owner has since decided they need more power out on the drag strip, and sent the car back to Georgia for the new Whipple Superchargers street package. The build starts with a new 2.9L blower from Whipple Superchargers, which is 1.2L larger than the stock unit. From there, the team fit a 103mm throttle body, their own CNC ported LT4 cylinder head, their 30% GDI injector set, and their own flex fuel kit.
