All this talk of the old guys still lurking, figured I'd start a thread to document some plans I have for my car. I joined here in 2007 and stepped away for a while after 2009 (job and family). The old Camaro just sat and sat.
Iíve had this car since 1993. Itís gone from my high school daily driver to a dust collector in the garage. Iíve managed to hold on to it when everyone said Iíd sell it, college, marriage, kids, buying a house and divorce. Iíve been dreaming of getting some stuff done to it so I can drive it again and this time not park it in the garage for 10+ years.
Before I parked it I was dreaming of doing Fuel Injection but that old 650 Holley was good enough. I had spent way too much on suspension, tremec, engine upgrades etc. But now that FI is even better than ever it's time to dump the double pumper.
Iíve been reading, planning and spending way too much money for over a year. Iím finally ready to start turning some wrenches again or actually crimping a lot of wire.
Iíve decided to:
- trunk mount the battery
- install Holley Terminator EFI
- install hyperspark ignition
- upgrade a bunch of wiring including better power distribution and relays
- milspec bulkhead (makes sense to cut a new Holley harness in half right?)
- pwm fan controller
Thereís a lot of side projects to this so itís going to take me a while. But now for your guys favorite part some car part porn.
