3rd Gen Camaro - Fox-Body Mustang (the good, bad and the ugly)
Most car guys don't know the difference between the 230hp G92 optioned models, or the 5-speed and automatic models, or the 170hp lackluster TBI versions (not to be confused with TPI versions)... Mustang guys smoke the 170hp TBI models, as well as the "run of the mill" TPI automatic models, and believe they can do this to any and all. Well, not all 3rd Gen F-bodies are created equal. Optioned from the factory with the 230hp TPI (not TBI) engine, manual 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 at all 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 rep on the street... many think that these were the example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios...

Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

5.0 Camaro G92 vs 5.0 Mustang GT ('90s Street Race)
Most car guys don't know much about the top performing 5.0 liter 5-speed
cars from 1990-92 with the G92 performance package that were packing the
230hp version 5.0 coupled with the 5-speed and 3.42 gears... these cars
were a different breed and cut above the "run of the mill" automatic
cruisers... also the earlier G92 optioned 5.0 TPI cars from 1987-89 which
also had the performance rear and hotter cam, as well as the even earlier
G92 optioned L69 code High Output cars a few years earlier (the pre-EFI
4-barrel models). The L69 H.O (high output) 5-speed cars ordered with G92
could actually be ordered with factory 3.73 gears... all these performance
optioned 3rd Gen F-body models gave the 5.0 Mustang absolute hell and were looked
over from this era as they were so outnumbered by the regular automatic
In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than
simply a rear axle option as in previous model years, the G92 RPO code now
included multiple performance upgrades, from performance rear-end and
engine oil cooler to performance Exhaust and hotter more aggressive camshaft. GM
also offered an answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which
consisted of the G92 option without A/C which triggered the elimination of
other creature comforts and power accessories, and the addition of larger
Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment.
During this period of the mid-late '80s and early '90s, the 5.0 Mustangs were dominating the streets
and the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could hang with or take
out a 5.0 Mustang of the
era was with these performance optioned models, the G92 5.0 cars, L98 5.7
cars... the rare 5.0 and 5.7 1LE cars and the ultra rare, wolf in sheep's
clothing B4C 5.7 cars, which was the 5.7 liter equipped, bare bones
stripped down RS Police Interceptor models.
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 rep on the street... many think that these were the
example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many
models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios...

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.

The Foxbody 5.0 Mustang - Generation X's Muscle Car
The ever-popular Foxbody Mustang. If you grew up through the
'80s or early '90s you experienced and lived it... it's too hard to explain
in words or video, but the Foxbody Mustang, simply known as the 5.0 Mustang, 5-liter Mustang or 5.0 back in those days...
the term "Foxbody" which is the 1979-1993 Mustang's chassis/platform actually
didn't really take off and become the most known nickname of these cars
until after the S197 models hit the streets... these cars were the "best
bang for the buck" back in the '80s and early '90s and were absolute
"straight line killers". For around $10,000 you had a factory performance
car that ran mid 14 second 1/4 miles off the showroom floor and with mild
tweaking could hit 13 second times... soon tuners were porting heads,
extrude honing intakes, gears and slicks and running easy 12 seconds... and
the aftermarket exploded!!! These light little Ponycars became the modern
day tri-five Chevy, and if you lived it you know all about it...
I wanted to toss together a little 5.0 Mustang Foxbody tribute with some of
my older Foxbody footage that I shot back in the day... a tribute to the
car and the passed, present and future Foxbody Mustang freaks out there....
