2001 Camaro is Ready to Run 10s with New Owner Behind the Wheel
Camaro has run a best of 11.30 with a worked LS1 engine, suspension upgrades and safety bits.
If you have been shopping for a turnkey fourth generation Camaro that can run in the low-11s, this Chevy muscle car posted in the LS1Tech Marketplace by “bowtie4600” might fit the bill. The car is still street legal, but it has been built for dominating the drag strip, running a best of 11.30 at 118 miles per hour before the latest round of modifications.
In other words, this Camaro could get down into the 10-second range and if you act quickly, it could be yours.
When the OP first posted this 2001 Chevrolet Camaro for sale, he provided a quick rundown of the upgrades along with addressing its potential.
For sale is a super clean 2001 Camaro z28. This car has had a lot $$ and work done to it with many modifications. The engine is the original ls1 5.7, cam, ported heads, injectors, headers. The transmission was rebuilt last year w/shift kit and heavy duty internals, 4200 stall yank converter (fine for street driving. Rearend is brand new with new hd drive shaft last year 12 bolt Moser($3,450.00) 3.42 spool…easy to put a posi unit. But drives fine on the street and never worry about braking it. Suspension upgraded with coil overs in the front, performance coils in the rear. All BMR suspension in the rear. Wolfe 6 point bolt in roll bar…easy to remove if you don’t want it. The car has a race seat in it now but I have everything you need to make it stock again. This car would be a perfect NHRA stocker. Best ET [email protected] in the quarter mile. I have not raced the car since I lightened it so it may run high 10’s in the fall.
Reason for selling is I purchased another car. New front runners and dot stickys in the rear, also new. Fresh oil change and plugs, wires, ready to race. Runs on 93 octane.
For some, the big stall convertor and the 3.42 spool might make this car a less-than-ideal street car, but it is streetable and more importantly, it is a drag strip beast.
Ready to Go Racing
If you are looking for a street car, this Camaro could use some changes, but as a track car, it is nearly flawless. The rear differential and suspension setup are ideal for the track, the driver’s seat and roll bar supply the necessary safety aspects and the naturally aspirated engine provides the power needed to reasonably shoot for the 10s.
That being said, this Camaro would make a great basis for a larger build, perhaps something with forced induction or nitrous oxide, which would allow the next owner to shoot for the 9s.
