This video was shot early on in 2008. Yes, he's a friend of mine. The
acting (if you can call it that) is us just messing around before battery
on the camera died. It was all done on the spot - no script - and the
racing was both cars going all out 100%. The Camaro has been 11.5's@122. Not
the fastest car on the road (by far), but enough to hold it's own with most
For those in complete & utter denial - doubting that the Civic was actually
turbo'd - here is the same car with a
duck call attached to the blow-off valve as a joke:
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.
