SEMA 2014: Hellion Boosts the 5th Gen Camaro with a New TT Kit

John Urist’s Hellion Power Systems has been on the map with turbo kits for late model Mustangs for years, building fully engineered systems that are well-packaged and efficient. What a lot of people don’t know, though, is that Hellion also builds equally nice systems for 5th Gen Camaros as well – as a matter of fact, at this year’s SEMA show, Urist himself showed us around the new Eliminator top-mount twin turbo system for 2010-up Camaros.

TurboSmart CompGate 40mm wastegates ride herd on boost levels, while TurboSmart Vee Port relief valves control backpressure on the cold side.

The system centers around a pair of Precision Turbo 62mm turbochargers with billet compressor wheels. Unlike Hellion’s previous Camaro system, the Eliminator puts the turbochargers high in the engine bay; if you ask us, this is a much nicer looking layout in general, and it makes oil drain-back a non-issue. Headers are custom 4-into-1 stainless, with V-band turbo connections for easier installation. Per Urist, on a built LS3 block that can handle the power, the turbos will support 1,250 rear wheel horsepower.

The intercooler is an air-to-air vertical flow unit with dual inlets.

Installation requires no cutting, and based on our previous experience with Hellion turbo kits, installation should be straightforward.

The entire kit

Pricing for the kit starts at $7,495 for a tuner system.
