1984 Camaro First Start
The first attempt at starting her for the first time with the rebuilt small block. headers only. she cranks slow cause the battery from the matrix doesn't have enough balls and the previous like minute of cranking was edited out.
some engine info:
350sbc punched to 358
hypereutectic .060 over pistons
edelbrock??cam 477/477 @ 112 LSA (came with motor, not 100% sure)
hooker competition headers
edelbrock RPM Air-Gap Intake
Holley 4150 4777-C 650CFM DP
Taylor Performance Distributor w/ MSD Street Fire Wires.
I believe them to be higher compression heads from '71. cant remember castings, maybe 993? or something.
1983 z28 Camaro
I have a 1983 cross fire injection z28 Camaro. It has 51,000 original miles
on it. My interior is rare because I've only seen a small number of them. Its called Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior. The car has Power everything, cruise control and a tilt steering column and the ERS sound system. There is carpet all over the plastic inside. In the back hatch compartment there is a trunk lid that locks and defogger on the back window also. I have had 2 other 3rd gen Camaros and they were nothing like this car, this car has a lot of options.
1984 Camaro Z/28 Project
This is my first car. A 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Bought it in may 2008 with no engine. The body was in great shape, no rust except for a bit on the trailing arms. 118 000 km's on the Body and T-5 Tranny. New stainless 3" Exhaust, headers back with a cat delete. It has '85 Iroc GFX and what appears to be the relatively rare 90-91 "blister" hood. Also game with the Grant steering wheel and weld draglites all around. So far I've spent the summer rebuilding a 1969 010 block 350 sbc. Nothing too special, punched .060 over with hypereutectic pistons, what appears to be some edelbrock .477 lift cam, edelbrock Air-Gap RPM intake, 650cfm dp holley, hooker headers.
Come spring I hope to install UMI SFC's, LCA's, LCARB's, PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows with an Eibach Pro-Kit. Hoopefully, If I get enough money, I'd like to get some aluminum performance heads and a different cam/valvetrain to optimize my setup.
Anyways, this is what I've done so far. I would do more, but at the moment I'm nearly 500km's away in university. Cant wait for spring!
80 camaro z28 doing a quick burnout
This is my god father andrew in his 80 Camaro z28 doing a quick burnout after he left my house. It is a 4 speed with a stock 350 small block and side pipes.
Just two pics of the outside of the car and a quick burnout.
1984 Chevrolet Camaro z/28 Project
This is the edited version of my other video. I must say I despise windows movie maker, the song always goes out of sync when you're trying to edit. anyways..
This 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is my first car. Purchased without a motor I got a great deal. It came with relatively fresh paint, 85iroc gfx, and almost no rust except for on the LCA's (which i plan to replace). The body has 118k km's on it as well as the T-5 tranny. The previous owner has bought a 3" mandrel bent stainless header back Exhaust with a cat delete. it came with a set of hooker competition headers as well as weld draglites all around, 215's in the front, 255's in the back.
Since i bought the car in may, '08 I've bought a '69 010 sbc longblock. tore it all down and rebuilt it to make sure it was done right. (good thing i did, somehow the previous owner managed to get a seed inbetween the deck/heads.) So far the engine is rebuilt, bored .060 over with hypereutectice pistons, a .477 lift cam with 112 LSA, '72 883 heads, edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 650 dp w/ squarebore mech secondaries and hooker headers. Nothing fancy, but as a student, cars are bloody expensive. one day i want to built a nice all-aluminum roller 383.
As for the car, nothing much has been done to it yet, all i've done is put new e-brake cables in. However, once the motors in and running, i'm going to put my funds into a pile of UMI suspension stuff, such as SFC's, LCA's, LCARB's, Adj PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows all around, Eibach Pro-kit and maybe a hurst shifter / shift knob ( i feel it gives the car a more late 60's muscle car look), and maybe some 4th gen seats and audio equipment (since theres absolutely nothing now).
Anyways, the video's not as good as i was hoping, i was patient with movie maker for a while, but now eventually i just gave up. would rather do it on mac/iMovie.
