The engine was built by GM Performance Parts and GM Performance Division with the help of NHRA racer Warren Johnson to show off the LSX platform. The 454 ci small-block LSX engine produces 641 hp and 611 lb-ft of torque. The engine is not fuel injected but instead uses a single Holley 950 cfm four-barrel carburetor. The cylinder heads are prototype LSX heads using six head bolts rather than five to increase cylinder head sealing strength. On a side note to all engine swappers, this block has the ability to handle 2,500 horsepower because of the strong iron block. The drivetrain uses a six speed T-56, aluminum driveshaft, and a 12-bolt rear axle with 3.91 gears. Front and rear suspension was upgraded by Detroit Speed and Engineering. With all this it is no wonder why GM says this Camaro will do a 10.80 quarter-mile.
