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...

Chevrolet Camaro Z28 - Test Drive and Hoon of a 3rd Gen
A simple morning drive featuring a 1982 Camaro Z28 with a few mechanical updates. This car was built to be driven and I do... a lot. Here's a list of some of the additions: Baer T4 Cross drilled and slotted brakes http://baer.com/1982-1992-F-Body-Camaro-FireBird-TransAm-GTA-Brake s/ GM Performance 290 HP 350 c.i. crate engine Hotchkis Suspension Flowmaster 3" Exhaust Koni adjustable shocks 2002 Standard Corvette Rims Flaming River quick ratio steering box and leather wheel OMP racing seats 6 point mild steel cage 6 Speed manual transmission built by Hanlon Motorsports ...and the seriously sweet Alpine cassette stereo from the 80's!





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. --------------- 350 block swap moddified Vortec heads CompCams XE268 cam Edelbrock Performer RPM Vortec intake Edelbrock 750cfm AVS carb Headman 1 5/8 headers 700R4 transmission - .500" line pressure Boost valve - huge servos - servo release check valve - TCI throttle valve - TCI Breakaway 2400 stall converter (lockup) - B&M ratchet shifter, front oil cooler, TrickShift oil.





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 models. 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...

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.... Filmed & produced by nedaCFilms / Mustang-Town 2013 with background music from the YouTube Audio Library. For more Foxbody Mustangs check out www.Mustang-Town.com

Chevrolet Camaro Z28 IROC-Z--Test Drive Video Review with Chris Moran
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com A museum-piece 1987 Camaro Z28 IROC-Z with Chris Moran. Presented by Midwest Auto Collection. with Chris Moran The 1987 Chevy Camaro Sport Coupe got restyled rally wheels (unique to this year), new lower body stripes, and argent headlamp pockets. The dropped Berlinetta model was replaced with the new 'LT' option for the '87 Camaro Sport Coupe. The 1987 Camaro LT option incorporated most of the Berlinetta's equipment except the electronic instrumentation. Late in the model year, the 1987 Chevrolet Camaro RS was introduced as a test for California and with only V-6 power. It had Z28 style valances that were painted body color (like IROC) and had no lower body stripes. The RS got the 15 inch 5 spoke aluminum Z28 wheel which were painted to match body color. The 1987 Chevrolet Camaro RS came only in red, white, or black. It also had the same steering wheel used in Z28's and IROC-Z's. Delco-Bose sound systems and leather interior were available for the first time and were available on all Camaro models. Automatic gearshift knob is switched from round to square in all models.The CHMSL moved to the spoiler (which was slightly increased in size) on all cars equipped with a spoiler (all Z28's, IROC-Z's, spoiler optional on LT and Sport Coupe). Lower body stripes on Z28 still numbered 4, but gap between the top three stripes was removed. The Camaro convertible was introduced for the first time since 1969 as a regular production option. The convertible was available on the 1987 Chevy Camaro Sport Coupe, Sport Coupe LT, Z28, and IROC-Z. The new 350 TPI motor was not available in the convertible however, and never would be during the Third Gen. The convertible conversion was performed on t-top equipped (t-top models have extra bracing) Camaros by ASC. Only 1,007 convertibles were produced this first year of production. 1987 was the 20th anniversary of the Camaro and the convertibles were considered the anniversary editions and were signified by a special dash badge that read `20th Anniversary Commemorative Edition'. Also specific to the 87 convertibles were the one year only third brake light and fairings extending a few inches onto the top edge of the doors. G92 performance axle ratio and J65 four wheel disc brakes were available this year on the IROC-Z convertible. 1987 was the last year for Camaros to be produced at the Norwood Ohio plant, the original Camaro Plant. After much testing the year before, the 350 TPI and 5 Speed 305 TPI combinations were finally available on the IROC-Z28. The 350 was only available in the IROC-Z and only with an automatic transmission. The exterior differed in appearance only by `5.7 Tuned Port Injection' badges rather than `Tuned Port Injection' badges. The TPI 350 motor was not visually distinguishable from the TPI 305. A few things can be used to disinguish a 350 TPI from a 305 TPI though. (other than the badges, which are often changed to sell a 305 TPI as a 350 TPI). All TPI 350 IROC-Z's (1987-1990) and all TPI 350 Z28's (1991-1992) had automatic transmissions and most had rear disc brakes. The eighth digit of the VIN is an `8' for 350 TPI's and an `F' for 305 TPI's. The service parts identification list in the center console glovebox will list the code B2L and L98 for a 350 TPI, LB9 for a 305 TPI. The under hood sticker should list the motor as a 5.7 liter rather than a 5.0 liter. All TPI 350 (1987-1992) Camaros had a tach with yellow at 5000 and red at 5500. They also all came with the Borg Warner 9 Bolt and 3.27's in 87 only, other years it was optional. In 1987, the 215hp 305 TPI motor returned on the newly available 5 spd / 305 TPI combination only.
