    2002 z28 camaro

    I'll be looking this up when I get off work. Mine is confusing. I haven't ran across any slp stickers but it has a z28 emblem on the PS wheel well under the hood. However, when I bought the car a few years ago it had all the SS goodies. Like a performance card. A little booklet. A pin. And a tire gauge. All branded with SS. As far as the hood foes, its a ws6 hood with the volant air box kit . But I have an SS spoiler and 17x10 SS rims. So basically, I have a Z28/SS. Oh did I mention recently finding out it's a rebuilt motor and tranny?? Mystery car :P

    Ummmmmm..... wat?

    Vinyl top?
    SS wheels are not 17x10

    Every SS started life as a Z28. Why would someone get rid of their SS hood is beside me. Check the RPO codes to see if it's a real SS.

    Yes vinyl top. The car is red and has a black roof. I suppose I am wrong about the rims then? Are they the zr1? Gosh now I'm confused. The SS hood is pretty but I do like that my camaro stands out compared to the next guys'. Which is why I initially did the berger panel... that everyone has now lol. I'll get back to the thread and share my findings

    Oh I gotcha. You said vinyl top, I was thinking like a 80's Caddy. ZR1 wheels are similar looking to SS 5 spokes, but the rears would be 17x11. The reason I ask about the hood is, those SS hoods net a pretty penny for a real one. They are the most desired hood on our cars. Why would someone own an SS and then change the hood out, that is what is confusing about it. WU8 and Y2Y will tell you all you need to know.

    I would've never been able to commit to buying new hood lol. Almost everything I've done is bolt on and I've kept the stock parts. The hood was on there when I bought it but the scoops look pretty aggressive. I don't mean to go off the topic too much but, what're the differences between the ZR1 and the SS rims? They're 17x10 all the way around with a Chevy bow tie on the center cap.

    RPO codes and you can also call SLP. I called them and they verified the VIN and sent me the birth certificate. Its pretty cool to frame and hang behind the bar.

    Like mentioned, WU8 on your driver door tag will tell you if it's a real SS. If you also have Y2Y then the car also got some SLP options,,,in which case the passenger door will have an SLP sticker listing those options.

    I had one guy at a local car show tell me if it has ss emblems its an ss!! I said really??? Im not sure about other year camaros but the 2002 ss cars all went to slp for hood and rear spoiler Which they also painted, And if you look carefully you can tell there is a slight difference in the color between the hood spoiler and body. And of course they also went to slp to get slp options, If slp options were ordered.

    It would have a WU8 RPO code on the driver door sticker if it were a true SS,,,that's really the easiest way to know if what you are looking at is the real deal. If you don't see the code, it's not what it's presented to be, and you could probably take that a step further and peak under the car to look for the larger SS sway bars and yellow poly end links as most people faking an SS wouldn't go through the trouble to switch that stuff.
    The RPO code is concrete though, no need to go any further, it either is or it isn't.

    its nice when you have a true ss and a z28 side by side to compare rpo codes with.

    Yea i know how to tell if its a real ss , I just thought it was funny that the guy really believed it was an ss just because it said ss.
