    B4C and Z28 exactlly the same?

    I am just curious about this is all, but did the B4C package have any other mods for performance than the Z28? Or anything else different other than the hard top?

    Nope, it's just a stripped down version. Engine and performance are all the same.

    They make really cool aftermarket badges for the B4C's. They look like sheilds with B4C and some Camaro stuff on them.

    No they are not just stripped down versions, they actually have more options and features then a Z28. Sway bars, oil coolers, power steering pump coolers, alum drive shaft, way way different computer tuning, higher speeds, faster times and on and on. These cars were built to be faster and made to run harder. If anyone cares to see them I can post some links to the State who did the testing on the LS1 B4C, I must say the info is impressive on the times. It was higher then a stock Z28.

    A lot of people like to talk down these cars, I have no idea why. If they were a striped down Z28 then why did they cost more?

    Stripped down they were, they are called strippers. (no ttops, cloth interior, no tcs.. etc. though some options were available, but rare for pursuit cars) And the only way they got the upgraded suspension package is if it had the 1LE RPO. B4C does not give them that. And in no way am I talking any car down. An LS1 is and LS1, whether it's in a Camaro or a Miata.

    If we are talking about the LS1 they all had the upgraded suspension, someone up above posted a link to camarosource.ca. They merged the Le1 option and the z28 together. I know your not talking down the car, but your not talking it up. There are a lot of myths about the B4c pack and some are good and some are bad.

    Well I understand your bias since you own one, but this is not the place to get on the defensive about that model Camaro. No one here is saying anything bad about it. So lets all just drop it.

    can we get the link? oh and i was told on several occasions that when the b4c's were sold to the public the factory tune was reinstalled on the cars. i dont remember the reason though. the camarosource link also states that none of the b4c packages added to the cost of the car. i would like to see more specific info on the b4c's but the camarosource seems a bit vague still. it doesnt mention anything you did.

    I have a window sticker it added a little bit to the total cost. I need to scan or take a picture of it and post it.

    a lot of the acceleration times were pretty average. i wonder if the test drivers were selected by driving skill. a lot of mid 13 second 0-100mph. but then again i didnt read where all the testings were done so i dont know what kind of D/A they are looking at.
