Video: Livernois Performance Builds The Ultimate Camaro ZL1

What is your definition of “ultimate?” According to Definition 3, Section B of a popular online dictionary, the definition of ultimate is – anything that represents or exhibits the greatest possible development or sophistication. We think that definition pretty much fits this 2013 Camaro ZL1 Stage 3 that you’re looking at here.

An ordinary ZL1 by no means, it has received a complete mechanical makeover thanks to the car wizards over at Livernois Motorsports. Featuring almost everything in the Livernois catalog including their: CNC ported LSA cylinder heads, Stage 2C high lift camshaft, LSA head studs, heat exchanger, solid supercharger coupler and pulley, steel idler relocation bracket with METCO pulleys, high flow injectors, and dual fuel pump upgrade.

METCO also lent their oversized crankshaft pulley ring to the cause, while the car also utilizes an Innovators West oversized balancer, Rotofab/Livernois cold air intake, NGK TR6 spark plugs, and American Racing longtube headers and connection pipe. Livernois also installed a GM 90mm throttle body, a 160 degree thermostat, and a set of hardened pushrods.

Not only has it received all of the aftermarket, high performance advancements that the folks over at Livernois could cram under the hood, but it has one of the wildest widebody kits that we’ve ever seen, especially on a 5th-generation Camaro. The overall look takes the supercharged Camaro to a whole new level, one that any camaro fan can appreciate.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this boosted monster now puts down 715 horsepower and 675 pound feet of torque to the rear tires. For those of you out there not so sure of your thoughts on the current Camaro, let that number sink in a little bit before you draw your conclusion.

The dyno sheet never lies. That's 715 hp and 675 ft-lbs. you're looking at as a result of the immense amount of modifications bestowed upon this ZL1.
