BIG NEWS: All New COPO Camaros Will Be Holley Equipped! HP EFI Is Standard

We are huge fans of the new COPO Camaros around here, although I am still pissed that one of the COPO owners has not let me make some passes in one, so we were super excited when we got the press release mere moments ago that says that Holley’s HP EFI will be the standard ECU on all 2013 COPO Camaros. The Holley system is super bitchin, and the line consists of the Avenger, HP, and Dominator systems. The main differences being the number of things you can control and the number of power adder tuning features. The HP is the perfect system for Stock and Super Stock racers that will be running the new 2013 COPOs. Congrats to Holley, and to all the COPO owners who will be getting one of their systems on their new COPO Camaros.

Here is the press release from Holley.

Holley EFI Selected as Standard Equipment on 2013 COPO Camaro

Bowling Green, KY –

Holley is pleased to announce that its HP EFI engine control unit (ECU) will come as standard equipment on all of Chevrolet Performance’s COPO Camaro factory-built race cars in 2013. This 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.

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.

COPO Powertrain Program Manager, Robin Wright said, “The Holley LS “Hi-Ram” intake manifold is a significant performance element for the COPO Camaro.  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.”

Holley’s HP EFI was selected to power the COPO Camaro for its robust control features and racer-friendly tuning capabilities supported by Holley’s longstanding involvement in racing through organizations like the NHRA and NASCAR.

“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.   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.  We’re excited about the future of EFI in racing and we intend to be the racer’s choice for integrated EFI and ignition control,” said Holley CEO, Tom Tomlinson.

About the COPO Camaro:  COPO stands for Central Office Production Order and was a unique system used by dealers in the late 1960s to order factory-built high performance cars in a manner that wouldn’t be noticed by GM’s upper management.  The COPO name was reintroduced in 2012 on the current-day COPO Camaro to celebrate this rich heritage, but this time with full support from upper management.   Holley EFI HP ECUs will be standard equipment on all 2013 COPO Camaros providing yet another tie to the heritage of the COPO Camaro since all of the 427cid COPO Camaros in 1969 were originally equipped with Holley carburetors.

  1. The Outsider

    Government Motors stuff must be too lousy to run on a “stock” car . . . .

    Not surprising considering the whipping that the CJ Mustangs typically put on the fat COPOs.
