Welcome to CamaroZ28.com ! ! !

Can’t recall the last time we had a new member from New Zealand. The small block Chevy engines are popular in Australia. Have you looked for sources there? Would probably save a lot on shipping compared to sourcing in the US.

Re: 1st timer nz

There are a couple of places I use to find parts for my car, which should also apply to your car (disclaimer: I am not responsible to any negative impact to your bank account or lack of time after visiting any of these sites):

Hawks Motorsports: Hawks Motor Sports ? 1982-2002 Camaro and Firebird Specialists
Classic Industries: https://www.classicindustries.com/
Rock Auto: https://www.rockauto.com/
Summit Racing: https://www.summitracing.com/
Jegs: https://www.jegs.com/

On top of these, most of your seals gaskets and accessories should be available at local auto part stores like O'Reilly or Autozone (or similar). Do you guys have Super Cheap Auto Parts in NZ?

Welcome to the site and good luck with your project!

Welcome to the site - former kiwi here living in the US. An IROC wouldn't be a common site on NZ roads - good luck with the project!
