Re: Advice shopping for Pro Touring Camaro
I would keep an eye on the classifieds on pro-touring.com, lateral-g.net and ls1tech.com. And then look for a car that has a build thread, so you can see what's been done, and how well it was done.
You're probably looking for an LS type motor (LS1,2,3,6,7 or LQ4,9, LY6, etc.), T56 trans, tubular control arms(Hotchkis, SpeedTech, DSE, etc) w/ adjustable coilovers, or a full blown PT front clip, 4 link rear, big 4 wheel discs (Wilwood, Baer, C5/6 conversion).
Even if you could just find one with the engine and trans in place, a lot of the other stuff can be added pretty easily. If you don't know what you're looking for check a couple of the build threads on the sites listed above and you'll get a good idea of brands and costs.
