The performance of the stock ’10 Camaro SS, straight out of the box, is undeniable. With 426 hp on tap, the Camaro can scoot its massive 3,800-pound curb weight from 0-to-60 in 4.5 seconds and clip the quarter-mile in 12.9 at 110.7 mph. By today’s standards, a high-12-second car for the streets is nothing to shake a stick atespecially considering the LS3’s cousin, the boost-packing LS9, makes 638 hp and runs bottom 11s.

Luckily for us who can’t leave well enough alone, the aftermarket has always been there to support where the factory left off. With names like Edelbrock (a pioneer in go-fast goodies) in the mix, we’re sure to get proven components that work. From the factory, the 376ci LS3 employs all the latest from the LS bloodline, making it a perfect candidate for boost. Taking a page from the ZR-1 handbook, Edelbrock’s E-Force Supercharger System utilizes the same Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) Gen VI rotors as found in the LS9-powered Corvette, as well as an air-to-water intercooler system. The integration of enormous 12-inch-long intake runners adds loads of grunt down low, while in a configuration that also allows the entire setup to remain hidden beneath the stock hood. Components like a handheld programming module for ECU updating, larger injectors, and a high-flow, reusable air filter are all included. Since the supercharger assembly incorporates a self-contained oil system, it can remain nearly maintenance free for 100,000 miles. Ever going the extra yard, to supplement the factory GM warranty, Edelbrock offers an optional five-year, 100,000-mile warranty as well. The best part? Edelbrock’s E-Force Supercharger System is 50-state legal and our efforts added another 130 hp to the tires!

What better way to showcase that pioneering spirit than supercharging a ’10 Camaro, right? The crew at Route 66 Motorsports in New Lenox, Illinois, took no time bolting up the entire kit. Additionally, Edelbrock’s E-Force only required minimal cutting and drilling of the stock system. After the install, Route 66 even put the Camaro on the rollers to prove its power.
