To make that much power, SVE adds a little more stroke to the LT1 V8, giving it a larger displacement of 6.8L. Other upgrades include a supercharger, CNC ported LT4 cylinder heads, upgraded fuel injectors, a 10 percent larger throttle body, custom stainless steel headers and a full stainless steel exhaust system.
Before sending its custom Camaros away to customers, SVE straps them to a dyno to validate the engine’s output. It recently posted a video of it conducting dyno testing on the seventeenth 2020 Camaro Yenko Stage 2 it has built, revealing the muscle coupe’s demonic V8 engine note. This video doesn’t give us a look at the dyno chart from the test, however, so there’s no way to confirm SVE’s blown LT1 makes the 1,000 horsepower it claims. It’s not very hard to squeeze four-digit horsepower figures from a supercharged General Motors V8, however, so we’re inclined to believe them.
Other upgrades that come with the SVE Yenko Stage 2 package include vintage-look black five-spoke wheels, sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires, Yenko exterior and interior badging and a carbon fiber hood with a large intake. The aforementioned carbon fiber hood does not appear to be equipped to this particular car for the dyno testing, but the coupe is still rocking the matte black hood that comes with the optional 1LE package available for the sixth-generation Camaro. Sharp-eyed readers may also notice this car as the 1LE rear ducktail spoiler equipped as well.
The 2020 Camaro Yenko/SC package starts at $70,000, but that price does not include the Camaro SS donor car. That means Chevy fans who want the privilege of owning this modern-day Yenko recreation will have to plop down over $100,000 to do so. That’s a hard sell in the wake of the arrival of the Corvette C8, though the Yenko-tuned Camaro offers up a different kind of performance than the well-balanced mid-engine Vette.
