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...

Teal to Black 1992 RS Camaro Project Restoration Slideshow
Here is a slideshow of the work that was done on my Camaro. Originally teal with tan
interior, and gets a complete makeover of black with black/gray interior.
It took about a year to and costed under $2,000! Got a cheap paint job from
a local auto body & paint place, and it looks great, and I've been taking
great care of the paint ever since. I got the hood and interior and the
silver RS badges all on Craigslist for under 100 dollars...big money saver
there. The interior, seats and carpet were from an 1984 Camaro. The plastic pieces were
all painted with duplicolor vinyl spray and has held up great. It needed
minor rust repair on the floor boards, it was patched up and chemical
blocked from coming back quickly. I have been customizing it with the
purple lights, and a big sound system, and still don't think I'm done yet ,
LOL. It's an ongoing fun project. Hope you enjoy, would like some comments
on what you think.

LS1 '92 Camaro on the Dyno at LS Fest - LSx 5.3 "Squirter" Project T56 6 Speed - Third Gen
This Dyno video was
shot at LS Fest 2013 in Bowling Green, KY.
The Squirter Project started out as a 2000 5.3 engine I picked up to go
into my '87 Chevy truck. Once I got it home, pulled the spark plugs out and
attempted to rotate the engine, water shot out across my garage. This is on
video and can be seen in the "Squirter" video playlist on my Channel. After
that we pulled the heads and found the rust in one bank of cylinders that
would not allow the engine to completely rotate over.
I did not want to invest in boring, buying pistons and bearings for this
motor. So we decided to recycle the engine. The day before we took it to
the scrap yard I got an idea for a fun learning experiment and presented it
to my YouTube audience.
The idea was to sand paper out the bores until it would rotate. Then slap
the heads back on it and run it on an engine stand. This would show us how
an engine runs with poor quality cylinder walls and also show everyone what
it takes to make an LS engine run all by itself on an engine stand. Then
one could apply what they see on the engine stand to their own swap
Everyone liked the idea and decided to donate to help make this project
possible. Once we ran it on the stand (also in the "Squirter" video
playlist), it ran so well that we decided to slip in a cam and drop it into
my '92 Camaro to make
LS Fest in a month and see how long the engine will hold up. When
assembling the motor I had the heads milled .045". Once the engine was
together and running well, I also decided to cut out the rocker stud lumps
from the intake ports of the heads. To fit the character of the Squirter I
left the heads on the engine while working the ports.
Over all we are happy with how the Squirter project as come along and are
still having fun with it.

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.
