1,000 HP 2016 Camaro SS by Late Model Racecraft Gets Exorcised on the Dyno

When tuners roll out one 1,000 hp machine after another, you can only come to the conclusion this is a great time to be a driving license holder and we're here to give you the freshest example of such a car.

We're talking about Late Model Racecraft's (LMR) 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, as the tuner has recently strapped its creation to a dyno, going for an exorcision. As you can expect, setting the inner demons of such a pumped muscle car free delivers an astounding soundtrack, one you can find in the video below.

Before you jump to the clip, though, we need to discuss a few things about the car. The LT1 heart of the sixth-gen Chevrolet Camaro SS has been gifted with a 416 ci stroker kit, while the forced induction is covered with the help of a Procharger F1A - for those of you who are familiar with this type of boost development, we'll mention Prochargers are basically belt-driven turbos, or superchargers without the positive displacement.

The Texan developer also put quite a lot of custom work into the project, touching the cylinder head, the crankshaft, as well as the breathing department.

The LMR1000 designation of the package indicates the estimated crank output of the machine. Nevertheless, since we're here for a dyno session, we have to talk about the rear-wheel output of the Chevy.

The LMR Camaro SS allows its driver to play with 882 hp and 747 lb-ft of twist (that's 1,012 Nm for all you metric system aficionados).

The 2016 Camaro SS is so resourceful that the muscle beast had been gifted with all three major power adders (twin-turbo, supercharging and nitrous) within two months of the first deliveries, so adding a Procharger seems like the right thing to do.

P.S.: We'd like to remind you this isn't the only 1,000 HP sixth-gen Camaro tuned in the Lone Star State we've recently taled about.
