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:
GM Performance 290 HP 350 c.i. crate engine
Baer T4 Cross drilled and slotted brakes
Flowmaster 3" Exhaust
Spohn tubular control arms and torque arm
Koni adjustable shocks
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!
Corvette loses hat & control, camaro & porsche burn it up
This is a clip from the SCCA Beech Mountain hill climb turns 7,8,9 and
finish. The finish line is really hairy, lots of spin-outs and wrecks.
The corvette is pushing hard and gets it loose. On the last day a Mustang went right through my
camera position. If I had been there well...splat!
World's Fastest Camaro - 1800rwhp
Twin turboCamaro built by LMR and owner
This car made 1800rwhp and ran 244mph in a standing mile. In October it
will try for a new standing mile world record. Watch the video and see how
much of a handful this car is to drive, Josh does a great job keeping the
car from crashing.

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

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
- .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.
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.
