Bowling Green, Ky.-based Holley Performance Products has announced that its HP EFI engine control unit (ECU) will come as standard equipment on all Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro factory-built race cars in 2013.
“The Holley LS ‘Hi-Ram’ intake manifold is a significant performance element for the COPO Camaro,” said Robin Wright, COPO Powertrain program manager. “The addition of Holley’s HP EFI Engine Management System for 2013 will increase user-friendliness, and COPO customers will truly enjoy features like lb/hr-based fueling and self-tuning fuel table strategies plus internal data logging with 2GB of memory.”
The modern-day COPO is the fastest Camaro ever to come out of Chevrolet, and the Holley EFI ECU will have the important task of managing both the fuel delivery and ignition timing, according to a press release.
It was selected to power the COPO Camaro for its robust control features and racer-friendly tuning capabilities supported by Holley’s longstanding involvement through organizations like the NHRA and NASCAR, the release noted.
“Racers all over are having great success with Holley’s EFI products. We’ve worked hard to make our EFI systems powerful, reliable and easy to use,” said Tom Tomlinson, Holley CEO. “Holley’s EFI throttle bodies became standard equipment on NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars for the 2012 season, and now we’re excited to announce that Holley’s HP EFI ECU will be standard equipment on the Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro for 2013.”
The HP EFI ECU is the third Holley brand product to make it onto the COPO Camaro. Holley’s Hi-Ram intake manifold was standard equipment on all 2012 naturally aspirated COPO Camaros, and Earl’s brand transmission coolers were on all 2012 COPO Camaros as well. All three products will be used on 2013 COPO Camaros.
