We’d recommend seeing a medical professional if you think the Camaro ZL1 isn’t fast enough to begin with… because 580hp and 556 lb.-ft. of torque is nothing to sneeze at. But there is a solution for those who think otherwise, and want to add more power quickly and easily: all you need to do is pay a visit to K&N’s website, and order their carbon fiber intake kit. And then install it.
The K&N performance air intake (part number 63-3079) was built specifically for 2012/2013 Chevy Camaro ZL1 models and yields considerable gains: 31.7 horsepower at 4300 RPM, and 39.7 lb.-ft. of torque at 3300 RPM.
The intake kit costs $799, and will not only add power, but save weight thanks to the light carbon fiber. Did we mention that the underhood sex appeal will quadruple, and that it has a million-mile warranty?
To recap: the ZL1’s 6.2 liter supercharged LSA is an utter powerhouse in bone stock form, and K&N offers a great solution for those who feel the need for
speed extra oomph. Let us know in the comments if you’re planning on adding this to your build list.
