Fifth-Gen Camaro Rules SEMA Again
The Chevy Camaro was named "hottest car" at the 2010 SEMA Show, which was evident in the shear number of cars in various booths throughout, not to mention the many new parts to put on them. Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports was one of several to take home trophies, with his 2011 (seen here) featured in the Advanced Composite Specialties booth. If you've been visiting www.gmhightechperformance.com, or GMHTP's Facebook page, then you've already gotten a taste of the many fifth-gens on the premises and there is plenty more to come on the pages of GMHTP, so stay tuned for some cool features and the hottest new parts.
Mast Motorsports On The Move
In the last few years Mast Motorsports has made itself quite the player in the LS market, and with the acquisition of Performance Induction Specialties, Mast now has the capability to fully design and manufacture cylinder heads, intake manifolds, and other parts completely in-house. This acquisition comes with the Walled Lake, Michigan, facility, which is equipped with the latest equipment from 5-axis CNC machines, 4-axis valve job machines, vertical mold makers, a state-of-the-art flow bench, CAD modeling and design, and CAM manufacturing. Cylinder head guru Cary Chouinard, most known for his work with ET Performance, will be retained as Mast's new Director of Cylinder Head & Valvetrain as well as Manufacturing Manager. Cary will be in charge of Mast's growing catalogue of top end parts including 14 different heads ranging from cathedral port to LS3, LS7, and raised runner race ports-including the new canted valve Mozez head.
'11 Camaro Convertible Set To Debut
If the sales of the Neiman Marcus Edition, which sold out all 100 in less than 3 minutes, are any indication, the new drop-top version should be a hit. GM still contends that the '11 Camaro convertible will be available by the end of February with a starting price of $30,000 for the base model. Mum is still the word on the Z28, but all indications point towards a '12 model to be released in late 2011. If so, expect to see a first drive and track test on the pages of GMHTP the moment we get our greasy hands on one.
