If you’re the proud owner of a fifth-gen Camaro, or you soon will be, Chevrolet Performance has dropped a gift on your doorstep. As of today, the Performance Division of Chevy has released a list of available parts for the late-model F-body. Everything from ZL1 brakes to LS7 camshafts will be available, and better yet, your warranty will still be valid if you have a Chevy dealer install the parts.
“Chevrolet Performance is the first stop for owners building a competitive, durable Camaro for the track,” Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, said. “These Chevrolet Performance parts are based on Chevrolet factory-validated production components that were tested on racetracks and validated to standards unmatched in the aftermarket industry. Quite simply, they’re tailored for improved performance and built to the highest standards.”
The all-new list of parts is designed to improve fifth-gen Camaro V-6 and SS models on the street and track. The catalog is comprised of components from the high-performance Camaro ZL1 and the road racing-oriented Camaro SS 1LE package. Regardless if you have a V-6 or V-8, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the performance upgrades at Chevrolet Performance.
Here are some of the parts available from Chevrolet Performance:
Camaro ZL1 components:
ZL1 front brake kit for Camaro SS (part number 22959672)
Two-piece, 14.6-inch front rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers with aluminum housings and ZL1 logos styled for racing. The kit includes two rotors, two calipers, brake pads and mounting hardware. It is a direct replacement for Camaro SS.
ZL1 rear brake kit for Camaro SS (part number 23104466)
If you’re adding the ZL1 front brake kits, then heavily consider these rear calipers. The kit includes two calipers with ZL1 logos, brake pads and installation hardware.
ZL1 front/rear brake kit for Camaro V-6 (part number 22989384)
Upgrade the front and rear brakes for Camaro V-6 models with the 14.6-inch front and 14.4-inch rear brake components from the ZL1. Twenty-inch wheels are required for caliper clearance.
ZL1 short-throw shifter (part number 19299460)
Make quicker, more precise gear changes with the ZL1’s 5.1:1-ratio shifter. It is a direct replacement for the six-speed manual transmission shifter in the Camaro SS.
ZL1 rear driveline system (part number 22959394 for manuals and 22959395 for automatics)
Install a ZL1 complete rear axle system to minimize the chance of wheel hop at launch. The kit includes a 9.9-inch ring gear with a limited-slip differential in a cast iron housing; driveshaft and asymmetrical half-shafts are also stronger. To prevent wheel hop, a 60mm hollow half-shaft is added on the right and a 33mm solid half-shaft on the left. The kit is a direct bolt-in for the Camaro SS and V-6 models. Manual transmission kits feature a 3.73:1 axle ratio and automatic transmission kits have a 3.23:1 ratio.
Camaro 1LE components:
1LE Track Pack (part number 23123398 for V-6 and 23123397 for SS)
This suspension kit features the production 1LE performance package. The kit includes a larger, 27mm solid front stabilizer bar, and 28mm solid rear stabilizer bar for improved body roll, retuned front struts and new monotube rear shocks for improved body and wheel control, and stiffer toe links and rear shock mounts for improved performance.
Camaro SS components:
SS brake kit for Camaro V-6 (part number 23120542)
Upgrade the front and rear brakes for your fifth-gen Camaro V-6 with the Brembo front and rear brake components from the production SS model. This is a more affordable option for those looking to increase braking performance, but don’t need the expense of ZL1 brakes. The kit includes two front rotors and calipers, two rear rotors and calipers, brake pads, master cylinder and installation hardware.
LS3 cylinder heads / LS7 camshaft package (part number 19300535)
For those looking to boost the power of their stock Chevrolet Camaro SS models, this cylinder head and camshaft package directly replaces the factory-installed parts for an additional 40 horsepower. The kit includes CNC-ported LS3 cylinder heads, along with a LS7 camshaft that makes the most of the heads’ airflow. This kit also fits other LS-family engines with at least 4.000-inch bores.
If you’re interested in the COPO Camaro but can’t quite afford it – no worries – Chevrolet Performance is currently offering parts from the production COPO model. Also available are a COPO Camaro hood (part number 22950678) and COPO-logo gauges that you can add for the look and feel of the iconic drag race car.
