Looking for sheer performance, an unbeatable show piece or just a cool car
to own and enjoy? This Camaro is all three; and at just
$39,900, it's an absolute STEAL!
Bathed in a brilliant coat of GMs famous Hugger Orange paint, this
re-imagined 1983 Camaro
wears a combination of straight steel and smooth fiberglass body panels,
which display excellent fit, under a glossy, mirror-like finish that
appears to have never seen a drop of rain.
A one handed hoist of the lightweight fiberglass hood reveals a tweaked 502
cubic inch 502 horsepower GM Performance
Parts Ramjet crate engine which is smooth, clean and ready for take-off!
Inside the massive orange cowl an Extreme Velocity Pro Series carb hat
sends air from a satin black intake tube, which hangs two K&N filters in
front of the cars radiator, to a chrome Holley 4-barrel carburetor which is
equipped with both braided Aeroquip hoses and an inline fuel pressure
gauge. Below that carburetor, an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake sends air and
fuel into aluminum GM Performance Parts oval port heads that are sandwiched
between a forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods, forged aluminum
pistons and polished aluminum valve covers. At the back of the engine, a
programmable MSD ignition system sends fire through an MSD billet
distributor to red GM Performance Parts plug wires. At the sides of the
engine, ceramic coated Hooker long tube headers send spent gases into an
aggressive sounding three inch Exhaust
system. And at the front of the engine, a Be Cool aluminum radiator, which
is equipped with two quick spinning electric fans, sends water through
chrome flex hoses to a GM Performance Parts aluminum water pump and a
billet overflow tank.
Behind the big block, a TCI turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic
transmission utilizes a TCI manual valve body to execute quick, efficient
shifts while a built in trans brake and a 3,300 stall converter put a wheel
stand inducing bite into the cars launches. Out back there's a stalwart
Curry 9 inch rear end with a Moser housing that carries pavement pounding
4.33 gears and spins unbreakable Strange axles. There's a custom 16 gallon
fuel cell out back which sends fuel through an Aeromotive electronic fuel
pump, and the massive Hooker headers flow into a vicious sounding three
inch Exhaust system that's complete
with a three inch crossover, welded Flowmaster mufflers and side mounted
turn downs. At the corners of the car, proven 15 inch aluminum Weld Racing
wheels wear 26x7.50 front and 33x19.50 rear Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires
in front of manual disc brakes.
Inside this cool '83 Camaro you'll find an inviting
interior that's a nice combination of quarter mile safety features and open
road conveniences. During the restoration a body-matched roll cage, which
lines the hard points of the car with thick tubular bars, was installed
around black cloth racing buckets which are equipped with red RCI four
point racing harnesses. Between those buckets, the cars original black
console, which sits on like-new tan carpet that is protected by fresh "Z28"
branded floor mats, holds a correct arm rest, buttons for the cars power
windows and a Hurst Quarter Stick Pistol Grip shifter inside of nice
looking carbon fiber applique. At the top of that console, five toggle
switches which control the cars electronic fan, line lock, trans brake,
fuel auxiliary and electronic fuel pump sit below a crack-free factory dash
that's 100% showroom straight; and a complete set of custom Auto Meter
gauges which include speed, oil pressure, transmission temperature, water
temperature, volts and fuel level sit inside a custom instrument panel. In
front of the driver, a Grant GT tilt steering wheel sits under a giant
A-pillar mounted Auto Meter Sport Comp Monster tach and LED shift light
which align perfectly with Auto Meter fuel and brake pressure gauges that
are mounted inside the cowl hood.
From its professional grade drivetrain and suspension, to its killer 502
cubic inch V8, this Pro Street Camaro packs a BIG performance
punch inside an awesome Hugger Orange wrapper. Call, click or visit

1988 Chevy Camaro IROC Z28 project
The car after I painted it:
This is my new project. A 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z28 with a 305 TBI
and a 700R4 automatic transmission (unfortunately)
Needs a lot of work!
5.0 Camaro IROC-Z (230hp G92 performance package)
A little montage/compilation vid of the old G92-code Camaro... more info on the G92
optioned F-Body, below...
Produced by nedaCFilms, http://www.V8ponycars.com and http://www.Mustang-Town.com
Unlike the 1985-89 models, G92 option in 1990 was expanded and purchased as
a full "performance package" rather than requiring other options and simply
being a performance axle option. G92 could be ordered two ways:
with or without air conditioning. Ordering G92 `without air conditioning
(C41 standard heater) added the 1LE "Road Racing Performance Package". The
G92 package was only available with 5.7L 350ci B2L code or 5.0L TPI 5-speed
All 5.7L 350ci IROC-Z's were required to have the G92 package in 1990 and
G92 with air conditioning (C60):
- Optional axle ratio (5.0L 305ci w/ 5-speed = 3.42 ratio and/or 5.7L 350ci
= 3.23 ratio)
- Rear disc brakes (J65)
- Performance Exhaust system (N10)
"dual Y-pipe w/ dual catalytic converters"
- Engine oil cooler (KC4)
- 5.0 liter TPI (LB9) with 5 speed gets revised and more aggressive cam for
- Weight saving spare (N64)
G92 w/o air conditioning (C41) in addition to above adds
1LE "Road Racing" performance package consisting of:
- Fog lamp delete
- Aluminum driveshaft (JG1)
- Larger (11.86 inch) front rotors and PBR Australian built HD
front dual piston aluminum calipers
- Special swinging fuel pickup in gas tank and special 18 gallon
baffled fuel tank for fuel pickup down to .5 gallon reserve to
prevent fuel starvation in hard cornering
The 1990 model year was only a half year of production. Due
to the termination of the Chevrolet IROC contract, no IROC-Z's
were produced after 12/31/1989. Instead, the 1991 Camaros were
introduced early during last half of the normal 1990 model year...
1990 IROC's are easily identifiable: 1990 was the first
year for the updated interior which included drivers side airbag,
redesigned instrument panel, yellow lettering on dash, rounded
controls, etc. So 1990 IROC's are the only IROC's with the new
In 1990, the base engine for the IROC was finally the higher
horsepower LB9 TPI
305 rather than the base lack luster economy
version TBI LO3 V-8. However, G92 had to be specified now to get
the more aggressive cam and 230hp LB9 motor in the 5 speed LB9
IROC-Z. Previously, all 5 speed LB9 IROC-Z's got the higher
output LB9. One other difference between a 1989 5.7 IROC and a
1990 5.7 IROC are the pistons.The 350 (only) received lighter
weight pistons thus a slight horsepower increase of 240
245 (1990). In 1990, TPI Camaros switched
from MAF air metering systems to MAP systems.
This eliminated the mass airflow (MAF) sensor...
IROC-Z convertible now came standard with 16 inch wheels and
G80 limited slip differential became standard equipment on IROC-Z.
The Borg-Warner HD rear end was dropped and replaced with the
old 7.625 (7 5/8) inch rear end. Because the Borg-Warner axles
were no longer being used for the G92 option, optional axle ratios
changed slightly: LB9 305 TPI 5 speed went from 3.45 (1989) to
3.42 (1990) and the B2L 350 TPI went from 3.27 (1989) to 3.23 (1990).
Many late-model enthusiasts consider the 1985-86 years being the models
that ushered in the rebirth of the American Performance PonyCars, with the
introduction of GM's 5.0L TPI (Tuned Port) and Ford's 5.0L EFI, the
High-Output PonyCar wars were again in full force... By 1990 and with GM
tired of the lighter 5.0 LX having its way with the Camaro and Firebird, the G92
option was offered as a full "Performance Package" rather than simply a
performance axle option... with G92 consisting of multiple performance
upgrades and weight saving options and the 5-speed cars getting more
aggressive cam specs, GM and their F-body twins were finally getting the
upper hand on the street again, and getting revenge for all the 5.0L F-body
automatics that were getting outrun on the streets and dragstrips by the
infamously quick Fox-Body platformed 5.0L Mustang. The
G92 code was GM's Ace in its sleeve. But Ford also had a secret weapon... A
bare-bones, and couple hundred lbs. lighter than the LX & GT hatch models,
the 5.0L Notchback Coupe (trunk models), that could run documented 14
second flat 1/4 mile times...
