camaro update

By wrecklez_28

Filed under: 1996 Chevrolet Camaro (my whore)

the maro is doing great finally got it on the road on the 20th somin of august, $3500 later.. had to bring it to the shop to get done with my busy schedual :( so the mechanic kinda screwed up of course annd i got downgraded from my old centerforce DF clutch to a stocker POS that sucks, slips and chatters..but screw it i wanted my car before summer ended so i went along with it, il just try to burn this junky one out before next summer :)
now for my next project...
the suspension- heres the list>
custom valved bilstein shocks and matched springs, 1"drop- $680
Strano 35mm/22mm hollow sway bars-$380
UMI adj panhard & poly/rod lower control arms- $265
UMI relocated torque arm- $350
UMI 3pt sub frame connectors- $280
UMI LCA relocation brackets- $60
thats $2016 in parts at cost, time to go bargain hunting and start chipping away at the list, im gonna try to keep the labor at $0 so its alll me :)
once i get this tired suspenion taken care of im aiming for a lloyd elliot head and cam package, the LE2 which should put me around 420rwhp =)
that is if i dont sell it.... ****in love the car to death buut its not the most practical and to tell the truth i hurt everytime i drive it :( hip is messed up so idk... especialy with the 6speed..
but thats whats new with it!
I finally brought it to the track, did a practice run then 3 all out passes, 1st time on drag radials, 1st holeshot i could of dumped the clutch a lil higher, 2nd time i hit it pretty good, but 3rd times the charm and I nailed it perfectly with my best reaction time yet too and managed a 12.88 which is better than i expected, i should really try and get it to a dyno before i jump into the internals, deff a factory freak =)
