Here it is my project it FINALLY underway. Had this car for a little over a decade now...... used to be my daily driver when i was young, dumb and full of cum. Decided like most not right in the head people around here that i had to "make if better and faster"

well then life got in the way :-damnit, you know work, marriage, morgage kids.




Nothing real exotic planned for this build just another junkyard 5.3 single Turbo motor. (haven't decided on 76 or 88mm) with a turbo 400.
Looking for mid to low 9's on pump gas, car will see a lot more street time than track.


Currently at the chassis shop getting an 8-pt cage, subframe connectors, and stock sub-frame cross members modded.
Gonna run tubular upper als lower control arms, 2 inch drop spindles, and 4 piston wilwoods up front.

Rear will be 35-spline 9 inch, stock style discs, Caltrac bars, caltrac split mono leafs, and spring sliders.

im sure it would be a good choice, but i already have a TH400 and with 3.25 rear gears planned im sure it'll be fine, with all the time and money that'll be in this thing i really wont cry over 4-5 mpg better fuel ecomony

Love the Just another Camaro we gear heads throw blood sweat and tears, a few cases of beer into and someday will drive it like we stole it and race too. Great build! Nice to see life being breathed back into the old girl! She will surely put a smile on your face when she gets the squeeze and that Boost in her ass.
