About

I bought my Z28 in October of 2004 for 500 dollars. It was not running at the time and needed a tune up and new clutch. The first thing I did was buy a new battery and put gas in the car. After priming the carb, it started on the 3rd try. It still had a little life, and I mean little, left in the clutch...just enough to get it to a shop to have a new one installed. I definately spent too much money but did not know what I know now about cars and clutches. Earlier this year (2008) I ended up replacing the clutch master cylinder, that the shop failed to do in the first place. I did the work myself. Over the past 4 years, I and my friend, John, have done a number of things to the car to improve the performance of the stock LG4 that is in it. We've deleted the a/c, the emmisions (almost all of it), the fan mounted on the motor, and the cruise control. It now has a non-a/c heater box, an electric fan, along with a new radiator, intake by Edelbrock, chrome valve covers and the dual snorkel air intake. I also installed a Hurst shifter and had a Flowmaster 80 series installed. In July of 2008, I had it repainted. Next year, I plan on changing out the fuel delivery system with a new carb and fuel pump. I've been "tweaking" the Q-Jet, but I'm not getting the expected results and it will be cheaper to go with new.
