The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 may not be launching until late this year, but that’s not stopping the aftermarket from announcing what they intend to do with the supercar. Which is pump it up with even more steroids, anger and freakish horsepower numbers. And for those of you who were somehow disappointed in the preliminary 640 horsepower rating for the 2017 Camaro ZL1, Callaway has announced a new SC740 package for the range-topping sixth-generation Camaro. And it’s said to be good for a Hellcat-hunting 740 horsepower.
This gain of 100 ponies is achieved when Callaway swaps the stock supercharger its own larger GenThree TVS2300 Supercharger System. In technical terms, the design of Callaway’s supercharger housing and integrated intake manifold reduce the charge air temperature while increasing airflow, which translates to more power. Callaway also implements its TripleCooled intercooler system, which is comprised of three low-restriction intercooler elements that also help reduce intake air temperatures. This extra cooling also means less heat soak at the track and the strip, which is said to translate to more consistent performance.
Those who wish to have a combination of Callaway’s performance and drop-top capabilities will have to settle for the Callaway Camaro SC610, as the SC740 package is only available for coupes. The good news for folks who fall into this category is that both the SC740 and SC610 utilize the GenThree TVS2300 supercharger, and we’re certain that either package would provide gobs of fun.
