Chevrolet Camaro Z28 - 3RD Gen Road Thrash Six Speed!
A simple morning drive featuring a 1982 Camaro Z28 with a few mechanical
updates. This car was built to be driven and I do... a lot.
Here's a list of some of the additions:
Baer T4 Cross drilled and slotted brakes
GM Performance 290 HP 350 c.i. crate engine
Flowmaster 3" Exhaust
Koni adjustable shocks
2002 Standard Corvette Rims
Flaming River quick ratio steering box and leather wheel
OMP racing seats
6 point mild steel cage
6 Speed manual transmission built by Hanlon Motorsports
...and the seriously sweet Alpine cassette stereo from the 80's!
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.
350 block swap
moddified Vortec heads
CompCams XE268 cam
Edelbrock Performer RPM Vortec intake
Edelbrock 750cfm AVS carb
Headman 1 5/8 headers
- .500" line pressure Boost valve
- huge servos
- servo release check valve
- TCI throttle valve
- TCI Breakaway 2400 stall converter (lockup)
- B&M ratchet shifter, front oil cooler, TrickShift oil.
My first attempt at real editing software with real footage.

LS1 Iroc at the track
11.67. Not the best run, so far best run has been an 11.62 @117 with the
18' wheels but didn't catch it on video. The car still has more in it with
a better launch and some drag wheels and slicks.
