STAINLESS WORKS. Quite possibly one of the nicest exhaust systems out there. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. If that doesn't suit you, I would really look into CORSA or KOOKS. They are both top-notch exhaust systems.
GOOD LUCK!

I thought it looked good until you showed under the hood!!! lol
Are you replacing the engine? Or doing a clean-up and restore on that as well? The body and interior doesn't look too bad. Not much rust, but it's hard to say until you get into it and start looking under the panels, where the real problems occur. Was this car stored in a garage? If you start work on it now, it could be done for March/April.
Good luck.

im most-likely replacing with a chevy big or small block, there is little rust, but it was stored outside in the elements so there may be trouble, and i want it to be done when all the snow is gone so i hope i make the deadline, and thanks

I would go small-block for a 3rd gen F-body. Big block can be made to fit, but it is a lot of headaches that I don't think you really would want. And they could also mess up your deadline for sure.

Good luck with the restore. That brings back memories. My second Camaro was a 1984 Z-28 with the 5.0 H.0 engine with the Rochester Quadrajet 4 barrel. It was dark blue with 5 speed manual transmission and T-tops.

LOL!!! That's what I was saying to myself? What? lol
Anyways, the small block will do fine. A nice 350 sounds about right. I was going to say big block just because I am a horsepower/torque freak!! lol
But, you can do a nice small block 350 with a nice cam and nice carb and good set of headers/exhaust and it will sound mean and move pretty good. (Plus a big block may take it's toll on the stock rear end after a while.)

You should be able to pick up a nice TPI swap for a good price. That would be great for you. GOBBS and GOBBS of Torque to get that thing moving, and they are super reliable for an everyday car. You hit the key in the morning and it fires right up and runs just right.
If you are not a total knucklehead a 350/305 TPI motor will get good MPG too. They can just chug along in OD and barely use any gas.
I used to drive an 87 Iroc-Z 50 miles ONE WAY to work every day for about a year. I always got in the high 20's and I had a few mods, intake, exhaust, headers, chipped. So the car moved really nice when I jumped on it.

just a suggestion. I am not trying to tell you what to do, its just that I have had 9 Camaros, and that is not including the 2010 2SS/RS I will be buying. SO I have had a few chances to mess with these cars, or I would not be putting my 2 cents in, haha.

Good Luck.
