Lingenfelter Performance Engineering knows a thing or two about massaging a small-block V8. With over four decades of tuning and engineering expertise under its belt, it was only a matter of time before the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro received the LPE treatment.
Lingenfelter is the first tuning and engineering house to slap a supercharger to the 2016 Camaro SS, and it has achieved some solid numbers in both naturally-aspirated and supercharged form. We’ll start with the heavy-hitting supercharged 2016 Camaro SS.
LPE managed to crank out 750 hp with a supercharged tacked on for good measure. Oh, that’s rear-wheel horsepower, mind you. With a supercharged engine package, Lingenfelter will offer a handful of extra upgrades including CNC heads, camshafts, stroker crank, connecting rods, forged pistons and an upgraded fuel system.
Lingenfelter also stated the supercharger package can be tuned for a lesser output, too, (550 hp to 750 hp) but, why not go big or go home?
If you’re a naturally-aspirated fan, LPE will still be more than happy to work over the 2016 Camaro SS minus a supercharger.
The 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine can be tuned to 550 hp minus forced induction, and includes CNC heads and camshaft. The package also keeps AFM, or Active Fuel Management, live and working for optimal fuel economy.
To compliment the additional power regardless of the package, LPE plans on offering additional upgrades to the 2016 Camaro including high-performance wheels and tires, higher-capacity brake systems, suspension upgrades and performance-oriented interior and exterior components.
After letting all of that sink in, we can only sit back in awe. Chevrolet and the Camaro team have truly created an incredible platform for performance. And it’s only just begun.
