No longer the Daily Driver

By Phantompooper

Filed under: 2000 Chevrolet Camaro (The Rocket)

Looks like the Rocket won't be my daily driver any longer. My wife and I bought a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer so I'll be driving her 1999 Camaro to work and whatnot from now on. I'll get it up in my garage as soon as she's clean enough to take pictures of.

She's back!!!

Got the car back from the shop yesterday, unfortunately the new heads didn't end up working, so I have to put the old ones back on. She's got the new clutch in and new roller rocker arms, but other than that, she's back to how she was before the new heads. Much thanks to everybody for their support and kind words over the past 3 months. I'll post up updated HP numbers when I can.

Still waiting.

Went to the shop again today and got some horrible news. Not only was my car not finished, it was broken again. I guess the head swap was too much. The rocker arm bearings came right out and were rattling all over the place. So I guess I need some new, stronger rocker arms to keep up with the newfound power. I'll keep you all posted.

Waiting sucks

Been a month now since she was taken into the shop on a trailer, but she'll be a whole new car once she's out. The heads, clutch, master and slave cylinder swap, once she's home she gets a replacement set of Bilstein shocks and G2 springs. I can't wait!!
