Re: 1997 to 1998 Bright Purple Metallic Camaro, RS, Z28

Value is in the eye of the beholder. Technically, you already have an aftermarket body kit on the car, so you already detract from the purest that would be looking for a numbers matching block. If...

Re: LT1 Clutch Disengagement Issues !!! Need Help!

I would contact Tick and let them know what you are up against. The only advice I have to offer is to be 100% sure the system is bled, and that all of the moving parts are aligned properly.

Re: Water pump failed. How long before Opti does too?

We live in Vegas, so we know too well about the gamble. Even if it looks okay, it might turn up to flat out not function when it goes into the car. A question I would ask before going that route to...

Re: 1997 to 1998 Bright Purple Metallic Camaro, RS, Z28

Nice find! The paint doesnt look that bad, where does it need work? Good luck with the rebuild process!

Re: Water pump failed. How long before Opti does too?

Couldn't you just do the MSD cap / rotor kit for the opti you have? Worst case if you get into your current opti and it looks really bad, return the kit then go the Spectra route.

Cost wise, I...

Re: Hendrick 97 SS

That is cool, I actually bought the car cover from the wreak too. Did you get the key fobs or the note in the glove box?

Re: New Engine won't pass emissions, High NOX

I didn't see an answer (though I was only glancing over posts); I believe that clip holds in the electric window/lock switch panel.

Re: Hendrick 97 SS

I didn't read the whole post Fred linked, but the Hendrick cars were all made by SLP. There were 61 SS cars, which were all silver/black stripes. Have seen some variations with black side...

Re: Lt1 heads

Your bore is 4.030. So that, a gasket of 4.1, compressed gasket .015, 2cc dish, 3.75" stroke, and a zero deck is 13.3:1

LE would be a good place to start. 11:1 is good for pump gas and some n2o.

Re: Lt1 heads

I never actually dynoed my car, so I couldn't tell you specific numbers. I am running the LT1 block with an Eagle 383 forged rotating assembly, with GM LT4 heads/intake that have been ported and...

Re: Lt1 heads

It sounds like you want a weekend car to rip around in. Cost out the heads, you'll likely get better flow through stock heads that have been ported and polished than untouched aftermarket. Call LE...

His was from what he said. V6 with dual cat, glass pack and muffler, so not loud. Also no tickets / smoke.

Re: Lt1 heads

What do you want to do with the car? Track, strip, daily driver, weekend driver? Do you care about mileage? Do you want to be NA/forced induction/nitrous?

Re: New Engine won't pass emissions, High NOX

I don't know how many there are. My understanding from my dad is that they only work by appointment for people who have been selected.

It depends on the show, were you at a state run shop?

Re: New Engine won't pass emissions, High NOX

Even ODB2 can be a pain in CA. My Dad had my 1997 RS for awhile, and got a random notice that his smog needed to be done at a state run facility. They failed it because it didn't have stock...

Re: Lt1 heads

What are your power goals and budget? It is important to nail down what you want before you try to decide what direction to go.

What ended up being the ultimate fix for the NOX?

Re: Tires for 97 z28?

Summer tires will give you the best grip in dry times, but can be a little scary when it's wet. If you are worried about the rain, an all season tire will serve you best.

Re: Tires for 97 z28?

What are the driving conditions where you live? Do you still have stock wheels, or are these aftermarket? I find it odd that your front tires are wider than the rear tires...

Re: is this due to my ASR?

Is that also repairable, or does the posi have to be replaced?
