ATI COPO is running strong! This weekend was the first time running the
car in air under 75 degrees and the performance really took off! "Actually,
it took off a little more than expected", Beattie, Jr said. "We
were able to set the Super Stock SSA/A record at 8.449 and 161.83 MPH."
The ATI crew took the motor apart for tech inspection, easily passed, and
put it back together in order to make first round. The ET and MPH records
where set at 3600 lbs, on a true 10.5" Hoosier, and running VP C16.
The performance of the ATI COPO speaks volumes for the package the guys
at GM put together for all the COPO owners to race.
Naturally, ATI’s COPO Camaro is fitted with plenty of ATI's performance
products, including ATI’s Fuel Comp T400 transmission in an ATI
SuperCase, paired with a 9" Fuel and Blown Torque Converter. The
trans is filled with Super F ATF and mated to an LS1 crank adapter and
flexplate with a 10 Rib ATI Super Damper to run the supercharger. The
Katech built motor is from all factory parts and to factory specs as GM
supplied and the Whipple 4.0L blower has never missed a beat. The ATI
crew is looking forward to going some rounds in the upcoming races before
the season is over.
