At the 2009 SEMA Show earlier this month, Jay Leno unveiled his twin-turbocharged version of the 3.6L V6 Chevrolet Camaro. With the help of Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers, output was taken up to a total of 425-hp. Apparently, when the turbochargers aren”t being used, there is virtually no loss in the fuel-economy of the base 3.6L V6 engine. Sounds pretty cool huh?
Well, according to GM’s Bob Lutz, Chevrolet may “perhaps” do a twin-turbocharged version of the Camaro. Nothing is confirmed but the “perhaps” does leave the door open for some turbos in the upcoming Z28. Pervious reports have suggested that the Camaro Z28 will get the 557-hp 6.2L supercharged V8 from the Cadillac CTS-V.
Lutz also confirmed that the Camaro Synergy concept will enter production along with an all-black special-edition model.
