    1998 Camaro Z28

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Best 1/4 is 11.92 in mid summer heat. Should be abput 11.7 in the spring. 385 rwhp (~450 flywheel hp). Loud as a sumbi** and sounds better than just about any late model F-body you've ever come across. I replaced the crappy factory Y-pipe equipped exhaust with longtube headers, 3" duals with an X-pipe, bullet mufflers and dumps under the car just before the rear axle. Add a wicked cam to that exhaust and............... ~woohoo~

    :)

    I'm not a big Camaro fan, but that looks nice! Good luck with it.

    I dunno if it's the car or your photography that makes it look so good.

    I bet you got to spray it to get into the 11s? No?

    He** no. If I sprayed it I'd be running 10's. :cool:


    Some people run 11's naturally aspirated on stock internals. I'm more along the lines of your average joe, requiring bolt ons and a new cam to run 11's. Hopefully it has an 11.65-11.75 as is in good weather. My last time to the track was hot (June) and I have a few little things added.


    My mods are almost all outlined in my car domain page, link in first post.

    50/50

    It's been around for awhile, daily driver all winter at that, so the paint could be better. If it's nice and clean it looks absolutely stunning from a short distance, but if you get bright and direct light while looking at it up close you can tell the paint isn't in new condition anymore.

    Good! Most F-bodies sound like complete ass thanks to the Y-pipe. The few I've heard with true duals sound damn good, almost as good as a 5.0. ;) Nice-looking Camaro.

    I like the six cylinder look. I took the Z28 badges off and it has the ground effects that are normally seen on the RS equipped V6's. When I turn the key anyone within a couple blocks knows it's not a V6. :cool:


    The headers are Jet-Hot, which is a copy of Hooker except the O2 bungs are on the inside rather than the outside and supposedly the flange is thicker. For budget LS1 headers I like Pacesetter. For just about anything you ever wanted to know, go to www.ls1tech.com. Just be sure you read the stickies and use the search button.

    A properly setup 5.0 still sounds sweeter than mine, but the lumpy idle and WOT at 4k+ are much, much more wicked than your average 5.0.
