Texas Speed loaded up their fifth-gen Camaro and headed out to Houston Raceway Park with one goal in mind, and that was to break into the 8s. The naturally-aspirated Camaro was armed with a Texas Speed and Performance custom spec solid roller cam, PRC 265cc small bore LS7 heads, and a Holley Performance Products Hi-Ram intake manifold. The tune for the Camaro was handled by non-other than Casey Rance of MailOrderTuner.com.
At the end of the day, the TSP fifth-gen was able to secure its place in history by being the first naturally aspirated stock bottom end LS in the 8s with an 8.963-second elapsed time at 148.85 mph. The Camaro went a 1.268 sixty-foot while achieving a 5.682 elapsed time in the eighth-mile.
We would like to congratulate Texas Speed & Performance on their new record as well as all of the sponsors involved in this venture. To our understanding, Mailordertuner, Holley Performance Products, Billet Specialties, Inc., Strange Engineering, Coan Engineering, Gforce Performance Engineering, and Motion Raceworks all played a part in this victory.
