2016 Camaro SS LT-1 gets blown by ProCharger!

Adding another LT-1 to the ProCharger family!

Without a doubt ProCharger has become the proven leader in LT-1 forced induction. Since the release of the C7 Corvette 2.5 years ago, and new GM LT-1 Trucks and SUV’s shortly after, adding supercharged boost to this new direct injection LT-1 engine has become mainstream. Thanks to highly efficient ProCharger head-units and air-to-air intercoolers, creating supercharged monsters ranging from 650HP to a mind bending 1,200HP has become the new “normal.” With that being said, it’s our pleasure to announce that the new 2016 Camaro SS can now be added to the list of ProCharger blown LT-1’s. This blog is going to cover the details about this fresh new system that’s about to begin shipping.

Bolt on 150+ HP and beyond!

That’s right, with just 7 psi on pump gas, your 2016 Camaro SS can enjoy a gain of 150+ HP thanks to our HO Intercooled System with it’s P-1SC-1 head-unit. Full systems come with our proven tuning calibrations and a handheld programmer, to make DIY installs a breeze. Higher boost levels and horsepower gains of up to 50% are possible with an Intercooled Tuner Kit and custom tuning, and even higher with modified motors. For hyper-custom racing builds, F-Series supercharger models up to the record setting F-1A-94 can be installed without the need for trimming or additional brackets.

Billet Bracket System with Dedicated Belt Drive

Since we know it won’t take long before 2016 Camaro customers ask for the F-1A-94 head-unit, and 4 digit power numbers, we designed this HO system to be ready, out of the gate, for huge power numbers.  To get a head start on designing a totally new system for this next generation Camaro , ProCharger engineers started with GM full vehicle CAD models, as well as having ProCharger engineers on site at the GM measuring session months before the cars release. ProCharger created a billet bracket design utilizing robust mounting points on the LT-1 motor for maximum bracket strenght. This system will firmly hold ProCharger head units ranging in size from a P-1SC-1 up to an F-1A-94. No removal of any OEM parts is needed with this bracket installation, which not only speeds up the install, but it also ensures that all factory braking, cooling, and oiling systems on the car work just as GM intended.

Using a patented crank pulley design, we are able to secure a 7.65″ supercharger drive pulley onto the factory harmonic balancer. The ProCharger crank pulley works by using a system of “cam-locks” to securely grip the factory balancer, taking the load off the crank bolt, and ensuring years of service without worry. Combining this 7.65″ crank pulley with our robust ProCharger tensioner near the supercharger pulley, the system was designed for maximum belt wrap. This ensures maximum belt traction as the power levels of these systems get pushed well beyond the factory 7 psi system offering. With the best belt wrap possible, ProCharger’s tensioner is unique in design in that its not only spring loaded, but also allows the customer to add as much pre-load adjustment as they want into the belt. This tensioner has already been proven, in similar applications, to support 1300+HP when used with dedicated 8-rib belts, so handling the factory 7 psi is no stress at all.

This system was designed to be the easiest Camaro supercharger system install we have ever offered (5-6 hour install time), and you can change the pulley and 8-rib belt without removing the bracket or the supercharger.

Two Intercooler Options

GM spent a great deal of time on the airflow design of this new Camaro SS, from the new front fascia, to the three front mounted radiators. With this in mind, ProCharger decided intercoolers specifically designed for the Camaro’s horsepower and cooling needs was in order.

Starting with a fresh core designs, the cross flow section of the intercooler core was increased in size to eliminate pressure drop as much as possible, while retaining cooling capacity. Understanding that customers power levels and goals will vary, ProCharger designed two intercooler models for this HO supercharger system.

HO Intercooler = 432 cubic inches of cooling core
Stage 2 Intercooler = 756 cubic inches of cooling core

Stage 2 Intercooler shown, with optional “Race” bypass valve installed.

Both intercooler options do not require any cooling systems to be removed on this new Camaro. These systems will come with one piece of preformed-silicone charge tubing–from the intercooler to throttle body. This helps create the best airflow possible, and also eliminates any chance of rattles or vibrations caused by metal tubing, in tight spaces (such as around the headlamps).  Another added benefit of the silicone hoses around these hot radiators, is the added insulation it provides to the cool air charge inside the tubing.

Tuning included in full systems

Tuning for full systems is included with the 7 psi stock system offering. This comes in the form of a simple-to-use hand held programmer, that also allows the customer to monitor and data log the cars systems. This handheld programmer also comes with the ability for OBD2 code scanning as well. With long-term reliability in mind, these tunes are set up conservatively from the factory to account for fuel variations across the country. As always, more power can be had from the base system with custom tuning from your dealer or tuning shop.

100% Reversible

ProCharger knows that there is always a chance that someone might eventually sell their Camaro and want to return it to stock. With that in mind, ProCharger engineering’s took the time to make sure  you can return the car to 100% OEM stock.  Nothing on your Camaro will be trimmed/cut/bent or modified in any manor.

System Options

ProCharger has many options to help you create a truly unique system that will fit your power goals, but also look you desire under hood.

  • Polished / Black or Satin Supercharger finish
  • Polished / Black or Satin Bracket finish
  • Helical Gear set for Noise Reduction (P-1SC-1 & D-1SC only)
