Video: 1,000 Wheel Horsepower Turbocharged LSX Reaper Camaro Updated

With it's custom side exhaust exiting the front bumper and it's cowl hood, this Camaro surely looks the part of it's Reaper name.

With it’s custom side exhaust exiting the left side of the front bumper and it’s cowl hood, we think this Camaro surely looks the part of it’s Reaper name.

Earlier this year, we brought you a video of the “Reaper Camaro” which is owned by HP Motorsports which is located in Katy, Texas. This time, we have the pleasure of sharing High Tech Corvette‘s video of their run-in with this fearsome beast. While changes aren’t drastic with the Reaper Camaro this time around, we thought they were worth sharing with everyone anyways.

With the Reaper Camaro in “kill mode” the car was able to put down an astonishing 1,235.1 horsepower and 1,140.3 lb-ft of torque to the wheels on the dyno. And incase you didn’t notice, that was on 275-wide street tires too. The owner of the car, Josh Hofstra, is also a tuner for HP Motorsports – so it’s not surprise how reliable this Camaro runs and drives from the video.

Hofstra's Camaro still utilizes the same 427 cubic-inch LSX block and a Holly High-Rise EFI intake. However, they've made some changes to the setup, utilizing Tial 44mm waste gates, larger injectors, and they've turned up the boost levels on the single 88mm turbocharger to 20-22 psi.

Hofstra explains that the car isn’t even at it’s full potential yet, stating that the block can handle much more. Using a Turbo 400 transmission, he plans to bring his Camaro to around 35 pounds of boost, which he says should put him around 1,600 to 1,700 horsepower to the wheels, with a 200 or 300 shot of nitrous as well.
