2010 Camaro SS + Magnacharger + Borla Exhaust + LS9 Camshaft = 508 RWHP

I think that everyone knew that the soon-to-be-installed camshaft that I mentioned in my previous post was going to be an LS9 camshaft from a Corvette ZR1.  After all, it has been mentioned on my Project & Mods page for quite a long time.

2010 Camaro SS Project – Camshaft Swap!

Remember when I said that my 2010 Camaro SS project is not even close to being done? Here is what is next…

Yes...it is a camshaft, but which one?

Yes...it is a camshaft, but which one?

Anyone care to take a guess as to what camshaft this is? I will give you a little hint…I am very surprised more Magnacharged 2010 Camaros aren’t using it, since it should to be a great camshaft for that particular application and has been proven to be a great performer on the track as well as the street.

Submit your best guess!
