  1. Electrical
    Hey all, I've recently gotten an Electric Life 8900 to replace the old kit (exact same) in my car. I got the car after it being abandoned for 5+yrs and the poppers didn't work from the start. I'm trying to rewire and setup my transmitter but I've hit a couple bumps. 1.) The yellow 12V Ignition...

    I have acquired a 1970 Camaro Baldwin Motion Phase 3 Replica with a 454 Chevy bbc from my father in law (FIL) early this year. This car was originally purchased at Barrett Jackson in 2011 and sat in my FIL's un-heated shop for the last 9 years. With the car coming into Canada, it needed to go...

  5. Engine
    I plan on home porting my heads and intake on my 350 sbc. I have been told that i have picked out a bad cam for my setup (which is likely because i was like 17). I was wondering if anyone could give me a good suggestion for a flat tappet cam from summit. I am running this setup in my 3rd gen...

  7. Engine
    Just got an '86 Camaro with a 350 swap, and didn't find out much about the engine before I received it. Was able to determine that the engine is a '71 350 out of an El Camino of that year. It has a 600cfm 1405 Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and Weiand X-Celerator intake manifold on it, that I can see...

    I've been trying to read up on what all it would take to convert my automatic 69 Camaro to a manual 6 speed and there's almost too much information on the internet on the subject to draw a final conclusion. I have 70's 454 Big Block engine I'm hoping to get around 600hp at the flywheel. The...

    I'm looking for a 6-speed transmission for my 69 Camaro and I still plan on using the center console. It originally had an automatic transmission and a small block 327. I've been looking at T-56's for a couple months now. I'm putting a 498 big block engine in whenever I can finish it off. Is...

    I currently have a 79 z28 Camaro that I have been drag racing a few years, now. It currently has a decent 355 in it right now. I am wanting to slowly build my dream blower motor and drop it in the Z when it is finished. My dream motor since I was young was to have a blower sticking out of the...
  12. Hotrodding Basics
    I recently purchased a 625cfm street demon carb for my 1973 Camaro LT, which has its stock 350 engine, and the damn thing won't accelerate, it idles like a champ but when I hit the gas it just sputters and shakes and doesn't accelerate and prior to putting on the carb the car ran fine. If...
  13. Paint
    Looking for an airbrush artist / car painter to fix (repaint) my drag car. I had it recently done but it was not what was agreed to nor wanted. I have to get it all repainted and new airbrush artwork done. This is a 1972 Camaro setup for drag racing. The theme is B-17s of WWII. It is dedicated...
  14. Transmission - Rearend
    I'm sure this has been addressed on here before, but I searched and came up empty. I've managed to get hold of a "95" 4L80-E out of a GMC 3500 TWD Van that I'd like to install in the "71" Camaro I'm building. Right now the 454 has a Edelbrock carburetor but I'm intending to replace that with an...

    Hey guys, I put together this parts list and want to run it by y'all to see if these parts will be compatible. I want to make a high compression 350 that I can put together myself (no crate engines, please) and rebuild the Turbo 350 behind it, and also add in limited slip. I'd like to also redo...

    I have a 1979 Camaro Berlinetta. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get the pin stripes? Ive tried many places and all they have are the z28 or rs/base one. I tried the trans am kit and they aren't even close.

    I have a 79 camaro , mild 383 has the close ratio m21 saginaw, 4.11 posi. I was wondering if M21 is better then a m20. It's my friend muncie for $600. It's a street car that even with a saginaw chirps gears. I was wondering what would be better close or wide ratio. Thanks
  20. Transmission - Rearend
    I have a 79 camaro with a 4 speed saginaw attached to an 11" clutch and 383 stoker. Will a m22 bolt right up to the bell housing and will all the parts fit?
