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.

1988 IROC-Z Camaro - New Magnaflow Exhaust
While the Flowmaster sounded good outside of the car, the constant droning
and interior volume was driving me nuts. I've since switched to a
Magnaflow muffler and haven't looked back. It sounds better outside the
car and the interior volume is a fraction of what it used to be.
My cameras microphone sucks but its a good idea of the sound, its much
better in person.

A short video of me driving my car. Unfortunately, I have to say goodbye
Camaro. Song is by Ian
Howe and is called Future Tense, from the Game Tempest 2000.
91 Camaro rs - two
This is the making of a new life of this 91 Camaro rs. My brother and I
installed a Corvette LT-1 engine, air ride, removed the door handles, and
painted the car Black gave it 12 coats of Black and 12 coats of Clear coat
giving us that mirror finish.
