Hy­brid Heart­beat of Amer­ica

NZV8 - - FEATURE CAR -

It’s hard to go past an LS in a Ca­maro, but Damo’s is a bit more ex­treme than most. It’s now pack­ing 408ci in an L98 block and is oiled by an LS7 dry-sump set-up. In­side it are a Cal­lies long-snout Speed Pack crank, 4340 steel crank with a four-inch stroke, and Cal­lies H-beam rods and Mahle pis­tons. All this is topped with LS3 heads that have been fit­ted with the best bits that Comp Cams had to of­fer, in­clud­ing stain­less-steel valves and dual valve springs. While the in­take man­i­fold and throt­tle body are LS3, the fuel sys­tem uses a Tanks Inc. fuel tank with in-tank 600hp pump, along with a Corvette reg­u­la­tor and fil­ter. An LS7 ECU has been used to con­trol the whole set-up, which in­cludes eight in­di­vid­ual MSD coils. While it’s not been on a dyno yet, it’s fair to say that it’s mak­ing a whole lot more power than the av­er­age L98.
