Twin Turbo, LSA-Swapped Fourth-Gen Camaro Is Just Getting Started

With a name like Nathan Hulkes, owning a bright green Camaro sure does fit the bill, doesn’t it? Nathan’s 1998 Chevrolet Camaro SS isn’t your everyday fourth-gen, though. Quite the contrary actually, as it now fits the hulking ‘green machine’ theme, thanks to a new mill. Under the hood of this F-body Camaro lies a forged and stroked 419ci LSA V8 swap with two 67/73 turbochargers; because nearly seven liters of displacement wasn’t enough, dammit.

Moreover, the engine build features fuel components from FiTech sending a mixture of air and fuel into a factory L92 intake manifold, powering a GM TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and sending power out back to a Moser Engineering 9-inch rearend and a matching Eaton Detroit Truetrac differential and 3.50 gears.

During the Doorslammers drag racing event at Santa Pod Raceway in the United Kingdom, Nathan entered the Big Bracket Class and dialed in his Camaro to a 10.2-second pass at more than 131 mph, and that was on just 2 pounds of boost. Nathan comments that he was currently breaking-in the freshly rebuilt engine on that pass, and he didn’t want anything to go awry during the shakedown.

After dialing in the new Strange Engineering suspension, “Nathan will be turning the boost up at the Retro Show in a couple of weeks time and is aiming for the 9s!” according to a post made on its Facebook page. No doubt the green machine has what it takes to run into the single digits on its current setup, and we can’t wait to see what the setup has in it on kill mode.
