Now Specialty Vehicle Engineering, the New Jersey-based General Motors-focused tuning company responsible for the 2020 Camaro Yenko/SC, is well under way with production of the 1,000 horsepower muscle cars. The company recently posted a video of one of its 2020 Camaro Yenko/SC Stage 2s on the dyno at its headquarters, allowing us to hear what its supercharged 6.8-liter V8 engine sounds like under wide open throttle. The car was being tested and tuned prior to departing SVE for Nimnicht Chevrolet – a Chevy dealership in Jacksonville, Florida.
The only downside to this video is that it doesn’t show us the chart from this dyno pull, so we don’t have confirmation that the car makes the four-figure horsepower numbers SVE claims it does. It’s not hard to believe that this engine is making 1,000 horsepower or more, though. The V8 is built around a 6.2-liter LT1 Small Block, which has been stroked to 6.8-liters and features a supercharger, CNC ported LT4 cylinder heads, upgraded fuel injectors, a 10% larger throttle body, custom stainless steel headers and a full stainless steel exhaust system, among more. The Stage 2 package also includes vintage-look black five-spoke wheels, sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, Yenko exterior and interior badging and a carbon fiber hood with a large intake.

It’s worth pointing out that SVE has been building these Yenko/SC-branded Camaros for years now and even built some based on the previous fifth-generation Camaro. This 2020 model year version isn’t much different than the 2019 model year car, except that it’s based on the 2020 model year Camaro, which features a slightly different front fascia than the short-lived 2019 model. The 2020 Camaro Yenko/SC package starts at $70,000 not including the price of the Camaro SS donor car, so those looking to get behind the wheel of a modern-day Yenko should expect to pay over $100,000 for the privilege.
