After carefully looking at cylinder head modifications, piston upgrades, and camshaft profiles, it was a conversation with the people at Vortech Engineering that led to the decision to supercharge it. The engineers at Vortech knew the engine might reach the 600hp mark with no other internal modifications. This seemed like a better route to try for a car that begs to be driven daily. Furthermore, the need for reliability on the street made it a better choice as its power goals needed to be easy enough to manage during daily commutes. Finishing the engine compartment is a carbon-fiber fuse box cover along with a polished intake and discharge tube.
For the exterior, new carbon-fiber body parts from Carbon By Design are used on the JBA Super Sport Camaro. These include a 4-inch cowl hood, decklid, rear spoiler, and roof and bumper inlays to transform the car into its race ready appearance.
Rollers & Stance
Adding to the increased handling performance and appearance is a set of Lexani LSS5 20-inch wheels mounted to Falken FK452 ZR tires. The fronts measure P245/40ZR20 while P275/35ZR20s are used in the rear, fitting perfectly into the wheelwells and provide much needed traction around corners and on the dragstrip. The killer stance was accomplished with a set of B&G Suspension Systems S2 Springs, which lowered the car 2 inches and provided additional cornering power.
The interior looked perfect enough in the stock, factory leather, but the original six-speed shifter was upgraded with a direct-fit Hurst billet unit that features the retro-styled white ball and allows for significantly quicker shifts.
