In anticipation of SEMA, Chevrolet Performance donated one of its ZZ632 big-block V8 engines to the guys in Honigan for the third-generation Camaro. Today they posted their first video with a running engine in a car.
The clip starts out with the engine mostly in the engine bay, with almost no connections required for life. However, after a significant amount of work, they are ready to start the engine. After just one try, the massive engine comes alive in a powerful, explosive barrage.
The sound is, as you would expect, powerful, and the power of the engine makes the team worry that the whole car might just fall apart.
ZZ632 produces 1004 hp. with. and 1188 Nm of torque on 93 octane fuel. The only thing that beats the performance of a naturally aspirated engine may be its price.
It was revealed just yesterday that the engine will cost $ 37,758.72 when it goes on sale in early 2022, which is roughly the price of a 2022 Camaro 1SS with a 6.2-liter V8.
After the initial launch, the team still had a significant amount of work to do before the third-generation Camaro was ready to ship to SEMA. With a custom Sprint air filter, octa-core radiator, custom interiors and more, it’s amazing the Camaro really made it to the show.
