Default 93 Camaro Build thread *LOTS OF PICS*

Hey everyone, I thought I might share the build of my car, starting from day 1.

So we begin with the day I bought the car. (Wheels I had laying around)


And I always service cars I just bought.



I thought it sat too high, so I bought lowering springs and some new shocks.




All put together, with new rotors and calipers.


And then I realized that 2.73's and drum brakes suck, so I went out and found a rear out of a 99 SS. (3.42's and discs)


I also got a 1 pc. aluminum driveshaft from the same car. (spent around 300 for rear and driveshaft)

The rear:


All sanded and ready to be painted.


Going into the car.


In!


Then shortly after, the odometer rolls 200k

And I throw a rod bearing

So I decide to go all out with the rebuild of the car.

First thing was to disassemble my car.







Then I pulled the motor out of the top Shoulda done it from the bottom

Motors out!


Yep, thats 200k miles for you.


So I found this donor motor with only 40k miles on it

Ordered some pacesetter headers from herron performance, they look great!


I sent the motor to a machine shop to be built.

In the parts cleaner:


Heads are all nice and clean.


Motor bored 20 over.


While at carlisle, I picked up some LCA's, Strut tower, and torque arm from UMI, and a single adj. panhard from lakewood.



And while I was walking the fairgrounds, I saw this badboy.


Yep, a vortech supercharged 3.4l v6. I talked to the guy and had a long discussion on how he did it, and I am inspired to reproduce his creation. I have a lot more detailed pics but I'm going to keep those to my self. Stay tuned for more updates

I think I would have just bought a 3.8L instead, the 3.4Ls are not worth putting much $ into, IMHO. But good work, don't mean to degrade what you did for your ride.

Nice job. I am a little suprised the 40K donor need bored. These block have a fair amount of nickel in them and tend not to show to much wear until 100K or so.

Good luck,,,

Thanks, The motor had a blown head gasket after I opened it up, and a cylinder had water+rust in it. So it needed to be bored. (I also want to run lower compression so the engine can take boost/nos.)

Haha this is true. Were the 5-speeds rare? I've seen tons of v6 Camaro's but they were all automatics. Except a few that I've seen on here.
