Remember how in 2008 the regular C6 got a big power boost from an all new LS3 engine ? Not so much for the LS7-powered Zed Ought Six. It still has that 7.0-liter monster of a motor that still makes the same 505 horsepower. The 2009 Z06 does receive the larger capacity 10-liter dry sump [...]
Those crazy bastards. Once again they’ve braved grueling heat, blinding sand storms, armed locals and excessive tequila. The 40th running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500 wrapped up last weekend with the kind of emotion you can’t hardly find anywhere else in racing.

Having seen a number of prototype Camaros in the flesh, we freely admit it’s a handsome car. Knowing that the chassis hails from Australia (i.e. Holden) is cause for celebration. We also know that some version of the ubiquitous Chevy small block will be under the hood. But, we’re also well aware that gas sells [...]

Just as the fuel pinch of the ‘70s eventually yielded great leaps forward in efficiency and power, so will today’s astronomical petrol prices.

It also just happens that American sports cars are the specialty of performance exhaust company Borla. Borla designed a 3-inch cat-back system that shaves over 30 lbs off the stock weight and adds 24 hp and 24 [...]
Nothing says business like a set of drilled rotors poised menacingly behind your forged wheels. If you want that look and the added performance to go with it, look no further than Wilwood’s SRP performance rotors. In addition to the fresh look, the drilled and slot pattern on the rotor will reduce pad glaze and [...]
