Referee certified LS1/6speed 85 SS montecarlo
100% homebuilt 85 SS monte. LS1, 6 speed, OBD2 conversion. complete drivetrain, harness, fuel system, dash and other misc. parts out of a 99 SS Camaro. the Camaro only had 47k miles when it came into my possesion. rest of the car including heater, lights, wipers, cruise control and things like that all being powered from the Camaros harness/controls. none of the 1985 harness remains except the dome light circuit. t
GM A-body 12 bolt reareand with 4.11:1 gears and a true track posi fitted with the ss Camaros 12" rear disc brakes. shortened upper trailing arms and adjustable lowers with spherical rod ends to fit the older/beefier/wider rearend. still a work in progress at this point, but to me getting the referee to approve my work was a big deal and a huge step. this car passes california smog legally! go green!...well as green as you can go with a full size, v8 powered car thats built for thrashing.

LS1 Iroc at the track
11.67. Not the best run, so far best run has been an 11.62 @117 with the 18' wheels but didn't catch it on video. The car still has more in it with a better launch and some drag wheels and slicks.
