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.
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.
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!

Chevrolet Camaro Z28 IROC-Z--Test Drive Video Review with Chris Moran
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.
