If you’ve got the scratch, late-model power is cool, no doubt. However, aftermarket late model power is even cooler. Case in point, the Hennessey Performance HPE1000 twin turbo Chevy Camaro ZL1 package, just recently released. That’s right, if the factory output of 580 hp just isn’t up to snuff, Hennesssey will double that with a host of new goodies for a face-melting ride, which Hennessey claims with 1,000hp at 6,400rpm.
Those boys aren’t afraid to crack the engine case, void the factory GM warranty and make quadruple power numbers for everything from European exotics to SUVs and of course, a handful of Corvettes, Vipers, and Cadillacs.
The HPE1000 Camaro ZL1 Package is packed with performance. Beginning with the 427ci LS motor, Hennessey adds a forged rotating assembly to fortify the bottom end and then adds their custom, in-house HPE grind camshaft to control the valves. From there, Hennessey tops off the short-block with a set of high-flow aluminum cylinder heads and then upgrades the entire fuel system to handle the extra demand. Finishing off the mill are twin ball bearing turbochargers feeding through stainless steel piping and dual wastegates. Of course it’s all installed at Hennessey, calibrated and tuned, dyno and road tested and complete with a 1-year/12,000 mile warranty.
When we got wind of the new HPE1000 package for the Camaro ZL1 with a supplemented dyno video to go along with it, we just had to showcase it here for you. So, enough with all the tech-talk. Sit back, relax and enjoy 900hp to the wheels!
