1984 Chevrolet Camaro z/28 Project
This is the edited version of my other video. I must say I despise windows
movie maker, the song always goes out of sync when you're trying to edit.
This 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is my first car.
Purchased without a motor I got a great deal. It came with relatively
fresh paint, 85iroc gfx, and almost no rust except for on the LCA's (which
i plan to replace). The body has 118k km's on it as well as the T-5
tranny. The previous owner has bought a 3" mandrel bent stainless header
back Exhaust with a cat delete. it
came with a set of hooker competition headers as well as weld draglites all
around, 215's in the front, 255's in the back.
Since i bought the car in may, '08 I've bought a '69 010 sbc longblock.
tore it all down and rebuilt it to make sure it was done right. (good
thing i did, somehow the previous owner managed to get a seed inbetween the
deck/heads.) So far the engine is rebuilt, bored .060 over with
hypereutectice pistons, a .477 lift cam with 112 LSA, '72 883 heads,
edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 650 dp w/ squarebore mech secondaries
and hooker headers. Nothing fancy, but as a student, cars are bloody
expensive. one day i want to built a nice all-aluminum roller 383.
As for the car, nothing much has been done to it yet, all i've done is put
new e-brake cables in. However, once the motors in and running, i'm going
to put my funds into a pile of UMI suspension stuff, such as SFC's, LCA's,
LCARB's, Adj PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows all around, Eibach Pro-kit and
maybe a hurst shifter / shift knob ( i feel it gives the car a more late
60's muscle car look), and maybe some 4th gen seats and audio equipment
(since theres absolutely nothing now).
Anyways, the video's not as good as i was hoping, i was patient with movie
maker for a while, but now eventually i just gave up. would rather do it

Another 2nd gear burnout from a couple years ago when the car had an
automatic and Pro Stars. Hard to tell from the video but this was about
250 feet or so... not bad for 2.73 gears

G92 Camaro IROC-Z vs LT1 Camaro Z28
1990 G92 optioned TPI 5.0 liter 5-speed Camaro IROC-Z and 1993 LT1
powered Camaro Z28 5.7
liter automatic messing around on the street...
-1990 Camaro IROC-Z 5.0
TPI 5spd, DX3-code decal-stripe delete, G92-code performance package,
factory GU6-code 3.42 gears, factory N10-code high flow Exhaust w/ addition of Edelbrock headers,
Flowmaster cat-back, SLP runners, underdrive pulley, 24lb injectors,
Lakewood control arms, adjustable pan-hard rod and a few other items...
-1993 Camaro Z28 LT1
5.7 liter automatic, K&N FIPK cold air kit, throttle body air-foil, custom
chip, factory 2.73 gears...
Most car guys don't know much about the 5.0 G92 5-speed cars from 90-92,
with 230hp from the factory, 5-speed tranny and 3.42 gears, these 3rd Gen
F-body sleepers gave 5.0 Mustangs absolute hell.
In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than
simply a rear axle option as in previous model years... GM also offered an
answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which
consisted of the G92 optioned without A/C and other creature comforts, and
the addition of Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment.
About the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could take out a 5.0L Mustang from this era was with
the Tuned Port Induction and addition of these performance options: G92,
1LE, L98 or B4C.
The TBI powered Camaro
were not even in the same league as the performance version TPI Camaro, or 5.0 Mustang, these 170hp TBI models were
GM's economy de-tuned versions and were around 50-60 less horsepower versus the
performance optioned TPI models. These non-performing models gave the 3rd
Gen F-bodies a bad reputation back in those days... many think that these
were the example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM
offered many models, with many versions of the 5.0 and 5.7 liter engines,
many camshaft designs and many rear-gear ratios...
