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.

Stock 3rd Gen Camaros (170hp TBI vs 230hp TPI vs 245hp TPI)
Not all 3rd Gen models were created equal... they ranged in horsepower from 170hp on up to 245hp. From the economy version 170hp L03 TBI 5.0 to the hot version 230hp LB9 5.0 TPI manual 5-speed model with G92 option and the 245hp L98 5.7 TPI with G92 option. This is just to open a few eyes out there on the many different options and engines these cars had back in the late-'80s and early-'90s.

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations & Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn. However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.

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.

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.

1984 Z28 Camaro Project Car
My dad's 1984 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro. I no longer plan to restore and use this car as a daily driver. I will be buying an older pickup truck and will restore it and I will upload videos of the restoration process of it. I will restore this car at a later time. Fuel economy plays a big role in this decision and I really would like something that already runs and doesn't have 200k miles and that gets better than 8 to 10 mpg and doesn't have rust holes everywhere. I have been finding more and more big problems with this car than I first thought there were and it is cheeper for me to get a more practical and a bit better on gas. I hope this doesn't dissapoint anyone and I hope you guys enjoy the videos to come! Shout out to gearheadAbe Keep up the good videos!
