Talking Ls1Lover's 95 Z28 Build Thread

Its a 95 Camaro Z28 6 Speed, Im gonna turn 15 in 2 Months, so this is going to be a slow build. My goal is to finish it up by the time im 16, My plans are to hopefully 383 Stroke it eventually. I traded in my 98 Dodge Ram 1500 for it. Camaro has 137,000 miles and runs great. The only thing is that it might have a blown head gasket but we are not sure becuase he said the last owner mixed the wrong coolants in it. The radiator has a very murky fluid in it so my dad said it might have a blown head gasket...?
The Mods:
K&N Cold Air Intake
FlowMaster Muffler
17" C5 DD
* Check Out The New Wheels On Page 5 *
Future Plans:
Pacesetter Longtube headers
Port And Polish Stock Heads
CC306 Texas speed cam ( Or custom grind)
BMR Lowering Kit
Sway Bars
Strut Tower Bar
Drag Radials
Custom Tune
Goal is to Get Into High to Mid 12s With those Mods.

Now we need to build you a 383 forged stroker with a 100 shot. You might be able to keep up with your moms car with that set up. Congratulations you deserve it.

The 4th gens are cool man. I had an 01 SS, lots of torque. Some Wilwoods or Brembos would be sweet.

Nice 4th Gen. The CC306 cam rocked in my buddies 97 Trans Am. It sounded mean and performed well for him. Good luck with the build.

Thanks, And yea they do sound sick!

Update: Got somethings figured out and fixed Today...
When we first got the car for some reason the left rear tire had a 225 on it and all 3 of the others were 245s. So we swapped out the 225 with one of the fronts, so both rears were 245s.
Also it was leaking from the radiator, So we looked under the cold air intake and found where it was coming from, the upper radiator hose had a small rip in it, so we took it off, then flushed out the coolants that were mixed together and put some dex-cool in it

That is a pretty clean older Camaro. When you are ready for some suspension and chassis stuff let us know and we can get you set up.

Nice looking Camaro.

Be sure to save up for a new set of tires. Those things are toast! You want a matching set of tires with good tread depth, and the same pattern. If the car has had those tires for a really long time, it looks like the alignment is off because one of the tires is worn really bad on the outer edge. It's scrubbing on the pavement because the suspension geometry is off. An alignment will cost you $50-$60 at a tire shop. Usually good to do it the same time you get a new set of tires.

oh stay away from the lowering springs. it will slow you down. It effects weight transfer to the rear wheels
