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...

Last 3rd gen Camaro
This 1992 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is last of many
categories: there is really a neat story behing the car to keep workers
from rioting on the last day at Van Nuys plant, on the last day of work one
of the workers would win the last 3rd gen Camaro made in 1992 it was the
end of the greatest generation of Camaro.
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...

Dirt Cheap Rat Rod! 1968 Charger Buildup and Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 23
Freiburger and Finnegan think this is the best episode so far! It's the
longest, too. This show has it all: a Mad-Max-vibe 1968 Dodge Charger built
with motorhome parts, sideways Dukes-style action, lots of low-buck
wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from
episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode,
the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the
last Roadkill of 2013!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
