Well, I had typed a solid hour of an actual build that was detailed... But stupidly I typed it in Internet explorer... Which crashed like the pile of fuck that it is. So heres a short version.

Bought the car as a graduation present to myself in 2007 it came stock with an SS hood, Ram air intake, SLP mid length headers and a flow master exhaust.

Car went from stock to Cam, to heads and cam to a spun rod bearing over the period of 6 years.

Blew it up last year at power cruise.

I always got, and Still do hear, "It's just an LT1 car" hence the projects name.

Bought a wrecked 99 Camaro ss for the drive train.

The wrecked car had:

Cammed LS3 (6.2 liter V8 for those of you that aren't into cars...)
T56
9" rear end
Nitrous
and some suspension.

Swapped the stuff in over the period of 3 weeks. The car runs well. Needs a final tune from Carl once I get the Nitrous in. I'm hoping for some where around 460rwhp on motor and some where in the 600rwhp range on nitrous. We'll see how it goes though!



The car when I bought it:

The donor car:

Cut some shit up, to make more working room:

Pull subframe/motor/tranny combo on two gojacks and a homemade dolly under the trans:

Install said combo into the good car:

Make nasty, cheap ass fuel solution to drive the car in 18 hours:

Oooh, neat:

Fab up a cheap ass (Not really, shit was still 100 bones from pepboys) Air intake setup to be able to drive the car.

Ooh Fancy:

Got check engine lights?:

^^No fucks given, Drive it hard^^

Looks good all cleaned up:

Looks sick with the drag wheels on:

Goes pretty good too: (6.1L challenger SRT with a D1 on 8psi Guy said 580 horse. I'm assuming, and hoping for his sake that's at the crank. This car doesn't run that hard)

Afraid old man will say you jumped him? Fuck it, give him a car and the jump.
Posted Image

Both of those runs are on motor. The nitrous isn't completely hooked up yet. Need a timing controller so the car can get a final tune from Carl.
Jump that.


There was tons more of back story to the car and the build.. but shit crashed so that's out. Boost will be going in this winter as long as everything goes well.

Sorry for the in car videos, pretty sure my buddies phone records in like 98 bit from 1994.

Here's a quick idle video of the very first time it moved on its own.

Thanks, with the cutout off (How I've been driving it.) It's even more noticeable. Definitely couldn't pull off that it's completely stock. But With the cutout plate on it's a pretty well hidden sleeper.

I still remember sitting at the stop light in Coon Rapids as we both headed to Home Depot. It was a couple of great sounding Camaro's. i never spotted you to ask what was done to yours at the time, but I think you said on the forum, cam's at that point. Would love to hear that beast in person now!

I shoulda sold you my 383 stroker with Nitrous after a wall ran into me. I think it went for $2000. Guy was putting it into an S-10

Yep, I was cam only lt1 at that time. The new motor pulls MUUUCH harder than that setup did at its best running time. And I'm still just on a base tune right now. lol. Got beat last night by a 2013 GT500 and my other buddies 2012 5.0 mustang with a blower on it. Nitrous is getting finished up this week so I can get a rematch with that gt500.

I'd like to try a 600 on motor. Sportbiketed's 750 pulled away pretty well last night. I think on nitrous I should be around hanging with him. Maybe.
