Chevrolet Performance Adds Camaro ZL1 To Drag Development Program0
Chevrolet announced its Drag Development program last year, but it used the 2017 SEMA show to provide an update on the program.
Specifically, Chevrolet Performance added a Camaro ZL1 to the program, and so far, it’s developed a handful of concept parts to crack a 10-second quarter mile time. The brand says the components helped push the 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine past the 700-horsepower threshold. The concept parts include:
- Cold air intake
- Larger throttle body
- Smaller-diameter supercharger pulley
- 110-octane calibration
- Magnetic ride control calibration
- eLSD calibration
- Racing tires
- Roll cage
- Racing driver’s seat with five-point harness
The magnetic ride control and eLSD calibration helped the Camaro ZL1 launch more effectively, per Chevrolet.
Now, the brand will continue to test the various bolt-on parts and evaluate them for possible inclusion in the Chevrolet Performance portfolio of aftermarket parts.
