AEM Cold Air Intake for 2010 Camaro SS V8 6.2

April 28th, 2010 1 comment

The return of the Chevrolet Camaro in 2010 ends the eight-year hiatus by one of America’s classic muscle cars. Now in its fifth generation, the Camaro is packed with a phenomenal list of features. For the SS model, the Camaro is powered by the LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine, which produces 426 horsepower (six-speed manual transmission). The automatic transmission equipped Camaro SS is fitted with the L99 V8 engine producing 400 horsepower. To match the powerful engine of the Camaro, Chevrolet opted to outfit the SS with four-piston Brembo brakes along with the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control. With a hefty list of performance-oriented features, the 2010 Camaro was clearly designed with the enthusiast in mind.

Once AEM‘s engineering department caught wind of the new Camaro, they also focused on offering an air intake system for the performance-oriented Camaro owner. For the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS with the 6.2-liter V8 engine, AEM introduces the 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System in Gunmetal Gray.

In the design of the 21-8029C air intake system, AEM needed to work within the confines of the Camaro’s engine compartment. To do so, AEM engineers designed an inlet tube that would give a large volume of airflow with little added restriction. The end result would be a massive three-inch mandrel-bent inlet tube constructed from high-grade aluminum. The design calls for the inlet tube to route from the V8′s frontward-facing throttle body into the driver’s side wheel well. In addition to the mandrel-bent aluminum tube, AEM utilized the optimal location for a cool air source. In order for the DryFlow performance air filter to occupy this location, the Camaro’s windshield washer fluid reservoir had to replaced with a sleeker piece. To this end, AEM designed a washer fluid reservoir that would better accommodate the location. Each AEM 21-8029C air intake system comes complete with a new washer fluid reservoir and mounting bracket.

On the dyno, the AEM 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System yielded impressive results. In factory form, the test vehicle generated a peak of 318.67 horsepower at the wheels. With the AEM 21-8029C cold air intake system in place, the Camaro’s peak power output jumped up to 325.98 horsepower at the wheels. A maximum gain of 16.53 horsepower at 4,200 RPM was also recorded with the AEM intake installed.

The 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System for the Camaro uses a DryFlow Performance air filter. The DryFlow air filter has a three-inch inlet diameter that outflows the V8 engine’s requirements. The oil-free DryFlow technology is extremely durable and easy to clean. To further augment the filtration properties of the DryFlow performance filter, AEM also offers DryFlow Pre- Filters. Designed to prevent splashes of water and/or mud from saturating the DryFlow air filter, AEM’s.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro

April 9th, 2010 No comments

The 2010 model year proved to be a very successful and exciting year for the segment-leading Chevrolet Camaro. For the 2011 model year, Chevrolet looks to expand the car’s popularity among consumers with the introduction of additional features.

“We are pleased with Camaro’s success in the market during its first year of production,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing. “The 2010 model year has been a banner year for us, and we plan to build on this momentum.”

Horsepower increase for V6 engine

The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro V-6 engine completed SAE certification testing and is now officially rated at 312 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 278 lb-ft of torque at 5100 rpm. This rating is eight horsepower higher than the previous year and also marks an increase in torque from the 2010 rating of 273 lb-ft.

“The 304 horsepower in the 2010 Camaro was actually a conservative rating on our end,” said Tom Sutter, GM V-6 chief engineer. “But we knew already that this award-winning engine produced at least the amount of power we stated, but now we’ve gone the extra step in certifying the engine for this application and have verified an additional 8 horsepower.”

The 3.6-liter V-6 with variable valve timing (VVT) and direct injection employs four independent cam phasers to change the timing of valve operation as operating conditions such as rpm and engine load vary. The result is linear delivery of torque, with near-peak levels over a broad rpm range, and high specific output (maximum horsepower per liter of displacement) supporting overall engine response and drivability. When combined, direct-injection and VVT enable an unmatched combination of power, efficiency and low-emissions in gasoline V-6 engines.

SAE certification is a voluntary power and torque certification procedure developed by the SAE Engine Test Code committee. This procedure (J2723) ensures fair, accurate ratings for horsepower and torque by allowing manufacturers to certify their engines through third-party witness testing. Chevrolet was the vehicle brand to begin using the procedure.

Synergy color to be made available across the lineup

Earlier this year, Chevrolet introduced the Camaro Synergy Special Edition which is based off the concept displayed at the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The Synergy Special Edition is limited to a 1LT model, but the Synergy Green exterior color will be made available on all trim levels for a limited run during the 2011 model year.

“When we looked at the overwhelmingly positive reaction we received from SEMA attendees and consumers on Synergy Green, making the color available across the board was pretty much a no-brainer,” said John Fitzpatrick, Camaro Marketing Manager.

Customers will be able to order this color for a manufacturer suggested retail price of $325.

Head-Up Display

Already available on the Chevrolet Corvette, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro will become the second Chevrolet vehicle to offer the popular Head-Up Display.

Camaro’s Head-Up Display will include:

Vehicle speed
Tachometer
Compass
Outside air temperature
Manual Paddle Shift Gear Indicator (if equipped)
OnStar Turn-by-Turn
Audio functions
Phone information
Selected gear
Turn signal indicators
High-beam indicator signal
Vehicle messages

“Head-Up Display has been a very frequent customer request” said Cheryl Pilcher, Camaro Product Manager. “People familiar with the HUD system simply love it. It truly enables drivers to keep their eyes on the road.”

Production of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro begins on June 7, 2010.
