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.

1985 Camaro Start to Finish
This video chronicles the transformation to my wife's first car, a 1985 Camaro. She bought the car in 1995 and when we first met she was driving it. We decided to sell it to my brother a few years after we got married. During the summer of 2008, I reacquired the car and secretly brought it back to its original glory.





Modified 1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS - One Take
Go to our website and click the 'DILLON OPTICS" banner under the "PARTNERS" Tab and if you order a pair, I'll send you a free TST Shirt! http://www.thesmokingtire.com This third-generation Camaro RS has been a ground-up project by its owner to turn it into a track-worthy build as he learns the art of performance driving. Though the 3.1L V6 is mostly stock and making an optimistic 190 horsepower, the chassis improvements are signiificant, leading to quite the interesting canyon carver, with plans to add LS power in the future.
