Performance Racing Industry 2014: PART 3


Here’s a factory COPO drag racer from Chevy.  For 2015, 69 of these Camaros are being offered for sale.

The COPO program allows you to choose from a variety of engines.  This one on display at PRI was stuffed with the COPO 350ci (5.7-lter) V8 with a Whipple 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger.  It also features Aeromotive fuel components, Mahle Pistons, Callies 4340 H-beam rods, Comp Cams billet, heat-treated Clevite bearings, and a carbon fiber hood.  COPO doesn’t mess around!

You want a crate motor from Chevy?  How about this 6.2-liter V8 LT1 from the seventh generation Stingray?  MSRP is $11,000.

Or how about this LSX376-B15 generation 4 small-block with forged internals and a 9.0:1 compression ratio for big boost?

And if you prefer to stay naturally aspirated, Chevy Performance’s LSX454R is reportedly Chevrolet’s most powerful engine ever.  With a 13.1:1 compression ratio, forged pistons, rods and crankshaft, this 454ci (7.4-liter) monster produces 770 BHP at 7100 RPM on racing fuel!
