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 has reached
Camaro puts aggressive Acura back in its place
100% stock (right down to the paper air filter) 1993 LT1 powered Camaro automatic, out for a
cruise after a couple base Dyno pulls, and ran into an
Acura Integra with a few bolt-on mods... The Acura fellas started it,
lol... actually chatted with the Teggy fellas after, and they were really
cool guys, so don't bash 'em... The first thing they asked us was, "man,
whatcha got done to that thing?..." and they were a bit shocked when we
replied that it was just a stock Camaro LT1 version and not the
more powerful LS1 model. I don't think they had ever messed around with a
V8 engined Z28 before.
"Surely a Domestic VS Import war will start from this video... but it is
what it is, and mature and true car enthusiasts know this and appreciate
all cars for what they are. Anything can by made FAST if you have the
bucks, but don't race an American Performance car with an economy run-about
and get mad when it loses" and cry about it in the comments... A V8 powered
Camaro is supposed to
beat an economy car, unless of course you don't have a mortgage or kids, or
live in your Mothers basement, or have dropped 10 grand in it...LOL!!!
