CAMARO HEADS FOR 500BHP
GM are testing a new engine for use in the Camaro
The new Chevrolet camaro looks set to recieve a 6.2 litre direct injection V8 which turns out 500bhp. The engine is a spin-off from the Cadillac Escalade aluminium Vortec unit. It is currently being tested by General Motors in an Escalade, according to Ward's Auto.
The new engine would deliver a 10 per cent increase in low end torque as well as the horsepower jump. GM have been working on small block alloy engines for some time and this one features eight fuel injectors which run straight into the side of the combustion chamber, and deliver fuel at massive pressure.
