    Trying to find some stock info. for the 1999

    Hi all, can some of you help me out,.. I am trying to find some information on the 1999 Camaro/SS. I am trying to find out the stock spec's for the car.

    Some web sites say the stock spec for the HP is 305, and I have also seen where some have listed it at 325 HP.

    If you can also throw in some facts about the car,.. that would be great.

    Thank you!

    they had 305 horses in 99, but as we all know thats an underestimate, all ls1s had around 350 at the crank

    could have a 4speed auto or 6 speed standard,

    not sure what else you want, anythinng in particular
    welcome to the site btw theres lots of info here

    2001 Camaro SS

    1999 F-Body

    1. 1999-2000 cars switched to 26 lb fuel injectors
    2. Cylinder heads and valve covers redesigned to have center bolts instead of perimeter bolts. Other than that, the heads were the same.
    3. Redesigned cylinder sleeves that allowed for a small bore, up from .005" in 1998 models.
    4. Midyear model change to a cheaper steering wheel audio control button without finger indentations, and cheaper built
    5. 1999 cars continued the LS1 intake with EGR provisions
    6. 1999 cars continued more restrictive exhaust manifolds and larger cam
    7. Only year that Hugger Orange was available (Camaro only)
    8. 30th Anniversary Trans Am available with special blue and white paint package and blue clear coated WS6 wheels
    9. Switch to larger 16.8 gallon plastic fuel tank to meet new emissions requirements.
    10. Gascap tether was shorter and could no longer be used to hang on the gas door when open.
    11. Company wide change added black boxes to record up to 5 seconds of data before a crash
    12. Rear hatch release was redesigned with stiffer spring that released the hatch better 13. Water temp gauge was redesigned to work basically as a dummy gauge and only show an overheat condition.
    14. An oil life monitor was added to all LS1s, thus changing the gauge cluster a little to show the oil life reset swtich 15. 1999-02 cars had a different PCV system with the valve located to the side of the intake manifold 16. Early production 1999 Trans Ams still had the blue outside mirrors, but a midyear change went to the non-tinted ones 17. 1999 there was the color "Medium Blue Metallic" which was available on both the Camaros and Firebirds. Only one year of that color

    i copied that from a sticky around here somewheres but it was saved in my email so i just copied and pasted

    hope it helped
