2010 Camaro with 454 swap

A 2010 Camaro is a stunning piece of mastered machinery, and comes stock with a nice sized motor. Upgrading that to a LSX 454 is the best way to bring out it's muscle car heritage. A retro design complimented by the infamous chug of a 454 illustrates this vehicles potential to reincarnate it's past with the technology of today. Comfortable seating, and all the bells and whistles you would expect from a 2010 Chevrolet combined with the classic muscle car sound is very unique. Providing extreme low end torque and great top end power, the LSX 454 crate motor is rated at 640 horsepower at 6100 RPM and 576 foot pounds of torque at 5400 RPM. The engine is capable of achieving in excess of 2,000 horsepower by use of forced induction and supporting modifications. Talk about a great engine for modification!

The price of the engine is nothing to laugh at, costing a cool seventeen grand to get the amazing crate motor plus shipping is only for the most hardcore individuals. But with a bore of 4.185 and stroke of 4.125 producing a total of 454 cubic inches, the 12:1 compression ratio is perfect for those of us wanting to run racing fuel. The power output of this engine if modified is uncanny because these statistics are stock, straight from the factory. Upgrading to forced induction, shaving the heads to increase compression ratio, and modifying the complete intake and fuel system would surely let out the beast we all look for. This engine placed in the 2010 Camaro is proof that it can be done, and that the 2010 Camaro will be host to a variety of high horsepower applications.
