Modified Camaro SS Limited Edition for Sale is Ready for Boost

2002 Camaro SS 35th Anniversary Front Corner

Camaro is ready to be driven as-is, but it features upgrades that prepare it for forced induction.

While flipping through the cars listed for sale in the LS1Tech Marketplace, we came across this clean 2002 Chevrolet Camaro SS 35th Anniversary Limited Edition. Like all of the 35th Anniversary cars, it is painted bright red with unique silver striping along with package-specific wheels and T-tops, but this is not a stock 4th gen car.

Seller “02z28marom6” previously had a ProCharger supercharger fitted-up to the LS1 engine and with that big blower came a few other supporting modifications. The supercharger has been removed and sold, but the other upgraded items remain. As a result, this Camaro SS is ready to be driven as it sits, but the buyer could install another supercharger if they want more than near-stock LS1 power.

The Introduction

When the OP first listed his 2002 Camaro for sale, he talked a bit about the car and why he was selling it.

Selling my 35th Limited Edition SS Camaro. Super clean inside and out. Recently had a fresh battery installed, fresh coolant and thermostat replacement, AC professionally charged at firestone, differential fluid change with moser diff cover, new serpentine belts, powermaster 150 amp alternator to keep up with the aftermarket stereo. Has a JL audio 10″ sub in the back. This car is ready to go. Serious inquiries only. Only reason I have decided to sell is because I’ve decided to buy a ZL1 or Z06.

Engine is untouched.

That was back in September and in November, he sold the ProCharger and lowered the price to reflect the lack of that key component. He updated the sales post as well, but the other modifications remained the same.

Current Status

Based on what is listed in the sales post, the current upgraded items on this limited edition 2002 Camaro SS are as follows, not including the upgraded electronics mentioned above.

Speed Engineering 17/8 headers and ORY
Fuel: Walbro 255 fuel pump
Eibach lowering springs
I also have gauge pod mounted with boost, fuel pressure and wide band connected.

If he is running headers and an off-road pipe, it seems likely that the car might be tuned, but there is no mention of a device coming with the purchase. The Camaro had to have been tuned when it was supercharged, so there is a chance that this car is making more than stock power, but in any case, it is ready to be re-fitted with forced induction.

A Unique Package

In hunting around online, we found that there were 1,971 examples of the 35th Anniversary coupe built for 2002 and of those, only 934 had the automatic transmission. In other words, this car is fairly rare, very clean and ready to make big power, so the odds are good that whoever buys it will love it whether or not they re-install a supercharger. When the blower was removed in November, the price dropped to $18,000 and today, it is listed for just $16,000, which for a rare, lightly-modified LS1 car seems like a pretty fair price.

If nothing else, for anyone who has been hunting for the final special edition package for the 4th generation Chevrolet Camaro, this is a great chance to buy one in like-new condition with a reduced price.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
