Gearstar’s test mule is a 2000 Camaro SS that packs a 444ci C5R-based LS1 with AFR heads, 13.0:1 compression, a big solid-roller cam, and a 300-shot of nitrous. As if 765 rear-wheel horsepower wasn’t enough for the driveline to deal with, the SS is a full-weight machine complete with power windows, steering, and door locks. The car has run deep 10’s on motor; indicative of 8-second potential on spray. Needless to say, with its dual role street/strip inclinations, it’s the ideal recipient for a 4L85E upgrade.
