- It put down 400 whp and 390 tq thu a T56 and a fabbed 9" rear end.
- Brakes are C6Z front and rear.
- I swapped hatch to get the cleaner look I was looking for.
- It was trailered to the Dyno because it was not tuned
and I was not willing to risk damaging my new engine.

1988 Chevrolet Camaro Iroc-Z LS1/T56 H/C/I
1988 Iroc-Z LS1/T-56 Swap, I'm gauging interest on possibly selling it. I
have it listed here. The tune needs to be gone through so it will idle
right off a cold start.
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.

Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28
with bolt-ons messing with a classic 455 swapped GTO.
The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being
tailed by an unmarked B4C (special service police) Camaro holding a radar gun (video
camera, lol) and you can notice the nervous and unsure look on his face as
we roll beside, then his complete and total relief once he recognized a
couple old pals in a regular Camaro, lol.
(This LT1 Camaro made
280hp at the wheels and ran 13.1 at Mason Dixon Dragstrip)
This footage was shot way back, many years ago, with an old junky analog
camera, so apologize for the poor video quality.

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.
