1999 Camaro Z28 for Sale is Built for Autocross Dominance
LS1-powered Camaro has an extensive modification list including some power upgrades and an elaborate suspension setup.
While the Chevrolet Camaro has often been grouped in with the other ill-handling American performance cars, the fact of the matter is that for a vehicle of this size, the F-Body corners nicely. Of course, that becomes truer when you begin adding aftermarket handling bits and while scrolling through the cars for sale in the LS1Tech Marketplace, we came across a 4th gen car that has been built for cutting through the cones.
This 1999 Camaro Z28 was posted by “Gjudd”, who is looking to move onto a new project after building this red Chevy into an autocross machine.
When the OP first posted his worked 1999 Camaro for sale, he explained that he would really like to trade the car, so he priced it high. He explains what he would like in trade and why, along with offering some basic details of the car before getting into the long, long modification list.
Price is ambitious because I am more interested in Trading.

Car is an autocross car. Looking to trade for a corvette, sti or evo to build into a track car. I’m okay with issues
The mod list is too long for us to include it all here in this spotlight, so we encourage any serious shoppers to check out the original thread by clicking here. However, here is a quick look at what has been done to prepare this Camaro for the rigors of autocross and other forms of racing with corners.
Under the hood of this 1999 Camaro is the original LS1 V8, and while the long block is original, this engine does have LS6 cylinder heads, an LS6 intake manifold, a BTR stage 2 camshaft, Stainless Works long tube headers and a long list of other upgrades that led to the power figures mentioned above.
That power is sent to the rear by means of a Tremec T-56 manual transmission with a Center Force clutch and a B&M shifter, while the original 3.42 rear gear sends the power to the wheels. Speaking of wheels, the car comes with two sets of wheels, 1999 SS wheels with new Azenis 615k for the street and Forgestar CF55 with BFGoodrich Rival S for the track.
This drivetrain likely makes this Camaro pretty quick in a straight line, but that wasn’t the purpose of the build. To make this Chevy muscle car more capable of carving the corners, the seller has substantially updated the suspension, brakes and chassis.
The front and rear suspension has been fully upgraded with Koni dampers, a Hotckis sway bar up front, a Hellwig sway bar out back, unique springs all around, Global West tubular front control arms and an array of other items. The chassis has been improved with subframe connectors and a UMI strut bar while the braking system features C6 Corvette front calipers along with parts from Wilwood and Hawk.
Finally, the interior features a pair of lightweight race buckets and a quick-disconnect Sparco steering wheel, but full original interior comes with the Camaro as well.
If you have been dreaming of a 4th generation Camaro that will conquer the cones as well as it does the quarter mile, this 1999 Z28 might be your dream car.
