CPP Pro Touring Kit

I have a 69 Camaro Coupe and am considering this kit from Classic Performance Products http://www.classicperform.com/Store/...ts/67PTK-4.htm

I was wondering if anyone has this kit and how the kit fits and if there is really a big difference in performance vs stock..I would like the adjustability of the Qa1 Coil Overs...

I was also considering this tire and wheel kit from ebay .. http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-inch-Stag...5c2ea5&vxp=mtr


Does anyone have any experience with these wheels/tires as far a s fitment and quality..

Most of the negative reviews I have seen of CPP is wrong parts, shipping errors, etc., but I only live 20 minutes from them so returns are not an issue..
I know that there a lot better parts available, but I am on a somewhat limited budget...

Any input would be appreciated..

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

Hard to beat all that for the $$$ Todd, I would definitely grab a 12.7:1 quick ratio steering box, but I seem to recall a serious issue with the one from CPP so maybe I'd look somewhere else for that.

Todd I have had the cpp kit in my car for a few years. Made the car handle like a go cart compared to stock. Fit and finish was great. If you are going to get this kit, add sub frame connectors. Made it that much better. Set the shocks at 10 clicks and haven't touched them since. Besides the new motor, best money spent on the car!

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

I was looking at converting to an IROC steering box.... I have read bad things about the CPP boxes..

Would the 275/35/18 tires with 5" Backspace fit on the rear with no mods?

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

Todd, a 5.5 BS is the perfect offset for a 275 tire, and you want a 275/40/18 btw ...if you run a 19" then move to a 35

5.5" of BS would be perfect for a 275 on a 9.5" wheel, if you go with a 275 on a 9" wheel (like the ones the OP posted the link to) then 5.25" of BS would be perfect. Maybe a better way to to look at it is in terms of offset (+ 6 mm) which would be the same for either width wheel.

And this too shall pass.

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

Possibly Jeff, but Jason owner of Rushforth recommended that 5.5 BS on my 9" wheels, I think if the wheels where inset 1/2" more they would rub the outside fenders ... mine do not rub the outside at all but I do have a Speeedtech rear end so I can position the rear dead nuts center allowing a perfect gap on either side.

Also here is the original order for my Amarican Racing VN425's ... fit perfect on stock rear suspension
2 WP 18x8 VN425 5x4.75bp 4.50"bs 313.00 626.00T
2 WP 18x9 VN425 5x4.75bp 5.50bs 322.00 644.00T
SH SHIPPING / HANDLING 100.00 100.00

The only thing I did change on the Rushforth were the offsets for the fronts, went to 5" BS

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

Thats good to know and I'm not surprised because we are only talking about 1/4" difference. By the way BS is measured from the back of the wheel so the more backspacing the further into the car the wheel will go. So 5.5 BS would move the tire further away from the fender lip than the same wheel with 5.25 or 5.0 BS would. I've got 275 on 9.5 with 5.5 BS (+6 OS) with no rubbing inside or out.

Love your car BTW, I am in the process of an LS3 480/ T56 mag swap myself. Still accumulating parts and getting my workspace in order, hope to start the actual work in a few weeks. Can't wait.

Sorry to the OP for the detour, that CPP stuff sure seems like a lot of bang for the buck. Guess it would depend on if you are actually gonna race the car or not and how important having big brand names are to you. Probably work just as well as the name brands for street use (maybe even occassional track use) as any of the high dollar stuff. Just my 2 cents.

And this too shall pass.

Re: CPP Pro Touring Kit

My point exactly Jeff ... Todd, if you do not want to spend a ton of $$ but want a dramatic increase in handling performance this is certainly the way to go

And ya, offsets confuse the sh%^^%! out of me .. lol

and Jeff, hope to see a build thread

Cheers
