wed3k : 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

ya ya, its an american car. Ive been doing LS swaps for the past 4 years so i got suckered into buying a cheap project which is going to turn into a money pit.

So far its all stripped down to the body and awaiting floor pan, mini tubs and a basic 4 point cage.

Then im ordering a full frame from Roadster Shop, once its rolling again then its back to bodywork.

It will have a Dart 441 cid, LS based motor with twin turbos. Hoping to hit 1200

That body would look nothing like that in any other part of the country if it were sold for "cheap".

Still, that's awesome! Do you have most of the trim.and hardware for it?

And since you're cutting out metal in the rear anyway, why not a C4 rear IRS and make a sweet retromod out of it?

Nah I have nothing but some glass and wing windows.

It's getting a strange 9" with a 4 link. It will be setup for mainly straight line on the street. I'm in the process of finishing the mini tubs and I mocked up the 4 point cage tonight. I'm going to be running out of money soon lol.

I hope you've driven something with heim joints at every point on the trailing arms on the street. It's rough.

Nah, a turbo Porsche would not give you anywhere near the satisfaction of this beast.

Twin turbo Camaro > Porsche

No matter how you put it. I know you like VAG products, but this is way better than any Porsche I've seen.

This is probably more reliable than a Porsche too.

CyborgGT is cool... so far.
^ If there are two things modern Porsches might be known for, it's reliability (a couple issues have been known to be blown out of proportion) and all-round performance.

I'm not into drag racing myself, but I've always been a fan of the first gen Camaro's looks. And building something to this level will undoubtedly put a much better feeling in your chest than just throwing a check at a dealership.

Finally the paint is done! put it in storage so i can stop spending money on it and focus on my corrado.





this is the initial motor that is going in it. 6.0 stock block, stock crank, forged rods and pistons. Got my intercooler in.

Just to give you an idea of the size of the turbos.




My boss bought me the rotating assembly for the dart motor for christmas. sadly, it will be a 427 cubic inch vs 441 due to piston restrictions but i will go for a solid roller cam.

The 6.0 might be sold to a customer and that will fund some other parts. the heads and rockers will easily be 6k+ eek

had to sell my wabbit gti just to buy the parts for the transmission lol.
