1988 377CID Procharged Iroc-Z28
This is my brothers 1988 Iroc-Z28 with a 377c.i.d. Stroker and D-1
Procharger. I made this video ten years ago in 2001. It was very
difficult to tune this engine at the time, due to the limited availability
of ECM tuning options. I was programming PROM's as best as possible for
this, which was, to say the least, superfluous. This engine flowed so much
air, the mass air flow sensor would max out at part throttle, and could not
be compensated for in pump-shot tables. This was built emissions friendly
(passed with flying colors), and retained all stock creature comforts. We
were the first to use the upgraded prototype mounting bracket for the D-1
Procharger on 3rd generation Camaros. The old design was
thinner, and only contained 3 mounting holes. As of today, it sits after
never completing the upgrade to DFI 7, Wide band 02, and 55lb. low
impedance injectors. Even though it never saw wide open throttle, it
remains un-defeated on the road after many impromptu races!

3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch
V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the
transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures
and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive.
I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the
project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by
gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012.

Engine now fitted and running! The sound is a little distorted due to being
in a closed room but will do some
more video when the car is out of the workshop. The engine runs forged
eagle crank, H-beam rods and SRP
blower pistons. The heads are dart iron eagles with 2.02" inlets and 1.60"
Exhaust valves. The runners are 200.
I am running a hydraulic cam as this is a street car, i may upgrade to a
solid roller later in the year. The gearbox
is a Th350 with a manual valve body and a 10 bolt rear end with LSD and
3.73 to 1 gears.
Next video will be ouitside and running and probably knowing me doing a
burmout or two!!
