    First LS1 Camaro!

    I have had 4 LS1 Trans ams over the years, and 2 LT1 Camaros. I bought a 98 Z28 6 speed with a 383 stroker, Liberty Trans, and moser 9". The drivetrain only has 5K on it, and it feels like it has around 475 to the wheels. It needs a dyno tune badly, its tuned but it has more in it. I got a crazy good deal on it. No good pictures yet, it needs TLC. Right now its at the shop getting a new clutch put in so I havent had time to detail it and I am embarassed lol. But I am pretty excited about this car, It FEELS a lot faster than my H/C Trans Am was. I have no traction in 1st or second gear
    Im gonna detail the car as soon as I get it back and ill post some mo pics.

    I just got a good deal on it. I will always miss my WS6 (I had to sell it due to owing the govt money unexpectedly.) This car looks mean though with the cowl hood.

    Alright, Got my exhaust in the mail Sat, waiting on the clutch and she'll be on the road! I had the panhard bar adjusted and it was missing a bolt out of the steering rack. Replaced the bolt, and now the steering is tight. I should have the c5Z06 wheels on by the end of the week, the wheels now are some pep boys specials with shitty tires. I should have some dyno #s soon. It should be just under 500 to the wheels, but I wont be pissed if its less. Im just happy I have something to work on again. After she's roadworthy Im gonna prep her for paint, then shes going to my paint guy for a paintjob.

    I was gonna do magnaflow, but they went up in price to 480$ new, so I went with spintech from maryland speed. 360$ I think it was and free shipping. The car has SLP headers already

    Im gonna take your word for it since I can only see a lil bit of it in the pic and you have seen it in person but this is why it looks funny to me...



    The rear quarter window doesn’t look right, maybe too big, and the body line there also looks funny. Also the area below it looks the opposite of a mustang with the typical recessed side sticking out instead of in. lastly the rear bumper looks to be positioned too low for a mustang of that era. Is there any body mods done to it?

    I just glanced at it briefly you may be right. I saw the rims and didnt pay it much attention after that.

    Never heard of spintech. I'd be interested in hearing it for sure. May troll over to ls1sounds to see if they have a clip. Good deal on the headers, one less thing you have to worry about.
