The Car Tuning Guide look at the Camaro tuning options. Which are the best modifications for the Camaro.
Available in standard form with power of upto 283bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Camaro. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 311.3bhp to 481.1bhp but this is far out of the reach of your local part store.
You will need some extensive work on the engine block, gas flowing, porting, 3 angle valve job, fast road cams, a remap, full balance and blueprint and even then you will need to add some pretty serious forced induction upgrades.
If you have one of the lower powered Camaros you should think about an engine swap with the engine from the 283bhp Camaro Coupes. Chevrolet certainly know what they are doing when it comes to making a fun car and the more powerful Camaros provide and excellent tuning base to work from. Car Tuning Guide have been impressed with the addition of stainless steel exhaust systems on the Camaros , if you want to improve your top end go with an air induction filter. You should also get a better fuel pressure regulator such as those supplied by FSE
The modification that gives the biggest power gain on your car would be a fast road cam. Getting better flow through the head of the engine would reward your Camaro with more power. So get the engine head polished and ported.
The Camaros come in various power levels right up to 283bhp as per the Camaro Coupe If you apply a few tuning mods to this model of Camaro you will see power gains from anywhere between 311.3bhp to 481.1bhp. But this sort of power requires some pretty heavy investment and a hell of a lot of engine work. .
Forced induction Camaros respond exceptionally well to tuning mods especially remaps, also add an intercooler to your mod list. The most powerful Camaro has a healthy 283 bhp. In a competition setting you may well, with some forced induction, reboring and other major work see power figures between 367.9 bhp to 537.7bhp with mods we have outlined above.) The Camaros handling can be dramatically improved with some choice suspension modifications. The Car Tuning Guide do not recommend lowering more than 35mm.
