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.

Here is the first vid in a few I plan on putting together showing the work
done so far on my 1986 trans am. The car is getting a turbocharged 5.3 LSx engine and a T56 transmission
as well as all BMR suspension. There will be no money spared in this build
so stay tuned for more updates.
LS1 Third Gen Camaro Z28 LS1 Swap Comp Cam
This is my 85 z28 with a LS1 in it. We just finished this car and this was
after the first drive. This is before we tuned the car.
This car has original paint and interior!
This is a LS1 with 241 heads and LS6 intake.
Cam: comp cam 275hr
91 Camaro RS 305 V8 TPI cam w/ open headers
just gettin to the end of my motor swap, still many bugs to fix.
305 V8 5.0L cammed shorty headers
update: the car was timed 40* retarded from where it should have been so
thats why it was acting the way it was. no 305 should sound like this even
open header, it was due to the changing of timing tab position between
newer and older small blocks
