Project 1967 Camaro
 
I picked up a tubbed ladder bar car a month ago.

I looked at it with a buddy, and the plan was he would buy the BBC and 8-71 blower out of it. So those got pulled in first 24 hours:

Plan is:
5.3
Turbo kit by Anthony Manna
A2A
E85
TH400 by Caira Automotive
Holley Dominator
Baker Engineering cam
Tuning support from Jonathan Capizzi

Hope to have motor and trans in by August 10th.

JAX04 07-31-2017 06:54 PM

Thanks for sharing John, im sure it'll be a well built car with attention to detail, especially with the crew you got helping! keep us updated!

Pro Stock John 07-31-2017 07:22 PM

Thanks guys. I been behind the scenes somewhat helping a few class racer buddies but the time had come to me to dust off the pocket book and spend some money. :)

In for updates! Is the Baker Engineering cam secret stuff? Or do we get to know the specs?

Pro Stock John 08-01-2017 10:20 AM

Yeah it's proprietary info.

What tires you running on the RX7 these days... I'm thinking 315 on a 15x12 or a 29.5 slick.

Forcefed86 08-01-2017 10:36 AM

Gotta say I really like the radials for street driving and stability up top. My chassis is a little unstable though. ;)

I honestly can’t tell much of a difference "hook wise" between the 275 VS the 315. Both work great when new. About half way through the life of the tire though they don’t work as well which is a bummer. Slicks seem to last longer. (even with street driving)

They have a new “Pro Bracket Radial” I was wanting to try. Basically a slick with the stability of a radial. Curious about the life I can get out of a pair.

Pro Stock John 08-01-2017 10:42 AM

Ah yeah the PBRs, I have a set of those 275/60/15 for the 5th gen but I plan to run a 30 inch tire on ol' Yellow Fever. :) I figure 30s will make it easier for me to dial the car in plus I don't really fit any classes. If there was a local Ultra class I'd approach it differently. I know they make a 30" PBR.

So your planning on having Capizzi tune it then going after his record?

Pro Stock John 08-01-2017 08:29 PM

Planning to get a base tune from him for $ of course, and I'm not going for his records, I won't be as light for one. But I'd like to do well and back his record up. :)

Who doesn't like a 67 Camaro-Was the first car I bought new, Bolero red with a white stripe, 4 sp, 396/375, daily driver/race car, ran stock and super stock, it was an expensive car, $2975 delivered, lol

hellbents-10 08-02-2017 07:27 AM

Looks like a fun project!

C5_Pete 08-02-2017 08:33 AM

Cool project John! Looking forward to seeing you out in it.

I had to ask, will be fun to watch everything come together.

Pro Stock John 08-02-2017 09:02 AM

I mean of course I'd like to beat him but I don't even have the car together so it would be pretty ballsy for me to say I'd try to run a 7.80 (but I'll try hehe).

C5_Pete 08-02-2017 11:14 AM

What size turbo are you guys planning?
