93-95 Z-28 were rated at 275HP Stock out of the factory 96-97 Had 285HP!
Borla full exhaust minus cat, hooker headers, k&n full system, TB bypass, performance MAFand SLP Lod all add up to horsepower So I would say 280 to 290 but hey maybe even more u never know It all depends how well kept the camaro has been.

yea i know ,the guy that sold it to me said it had around 325hp and 360lbs torque but my mechanic said that it was around 310hp 340lbs torque i think it has more than what im saying, it was very well kept and i was actually on the verge of buying a ls1 ws6 and then sorry to say a mustang gt (yea i know) ...and the gt i drove was rated at 260hp and it wasnt really responsive when i pressed the medal down but had a nice sound and probably is faster than alot of supposedly fast regular cars, and then when i drove the ls1 of course it was very impressive, but i fell in love with the Z the borla sounds real nice and it really goes....im already building up a kill list, neighbor 98 corvette, and friends 04 mustang gt(cold air, cat back,k&n), and other friends 03 mercury marauder (cat back, chip)

oh okay, yea so do these cars come with gears via 3:73 4:10? i notice sometimes when i punch, well more times than not, i fish tail when i punch it. Some one told me to change my gears, and my mechanic said that it wasnt abnormal because my car has so much power/torque.....

The majority of TA's and Z28's had 3.23 gear ration in the automatics, or 3.42 in a manual (thats it yours has the 150 mph speedometer). You can also tell the gear ratio from the RPO codes (located in the glove box):
GU2 - Axle, Rear 2.73 Ratio
GU4 - Axle, Rear 3.08 Ratio
GU5 - Axle, Rear 3.23 Ratio
GU6 - Axle, Rear 3.42 Ratio
1993 3.36 2.07 1.35 1.00 0.80 0.62 (std)
1993 2.97 2.07 1.43 1.00 0.80 0.62 (G92)
1994 2.66 1.78 1.30 1.00 0.74 0.50
1995 2.66 1.78 1.30 1.00 0.74 0.50
if you have anymore questions just pm me. i dont wanna post a bunch of stuff most of the other people already know, but i don't mind answering any questions that i can, if i can't i'll point you to someone who can

yea see im in michigan and its cold, and from a roll and from a dead stop my rear end fish tails for a sec before i gain good traction, but when i do..well you know, lol.....im not to sure if the gears have been changed on it though, because i just got it approx 2 weeks ago, and have only driven it in the cold whether obviously.....

this websit is probably the most usefull site i have ever seen for the LT1 engine this guy bought a brand new 96 ws6 in 96 and he owns a dyno.it will give you a very good idea of how much power you are getting to the ground and will give you some good ideas what to do and what to avoid. he even averages out every gain of horsepower to how much money he spent. it helps you avoid buying useless shit. take it easy man im guessing you will make atleast 330hp to the ground with that car. drive safe and be ready to spend any extra money you come across as long as you own an F body.

When the LT1's were new I saw quite a few bone stockers on chassis dyno's, they always made about 260 to 275 rwhp through a 6 speed pretty regular.
Only way to tell for sure is get the thing on a dyno and see what happens. Every car is a little different. Larry.

my bad i was under the impression that when you dyno your car you pay for a tune on the dyno. that is what i have heard from a some friends that got their cars dynoed.

ive been scrolling through the forums and have concluded that getting a tune is essential to performance, and helps alot. How do i go about getting a tune? who does tunes? im confused because i know its different than a tune up which i just recently got.

some people use mail order tunes. IMHO you need to do a search in your local area and find someone to do a dyno tune.
