Are you the one who put the LS1 in the car? If so, how did it go? I own a 1991 Z28 that is a factory 5.7 but an automatic due to all 5.7 Z28’s only came in auto. My son and I want to make it a 6 speed ZF with an LS engine. Probably the 6.2 L. Looks like it fits nice in there. Cool car. @yevgenievich
I put ls1 in it about 14 years ago. Currently putting an ls3 in 87 camaro with a t56. To do it more seamless, body harness needs to integrate with engine harness.

The only exception I make for cutting stuff to replace parts, is window motors on the 3rd and 4th gens. It saves SO much frustration and it is not at all harmful to any structure. With some well-placed holes (small ones, just to drill out rivets), you can remove and replace the window motor and not have to disturb the regulator.
Yep. Done that in my 3rd Gen Z28.

You know, there's so many of us here with Camaros and Firebirds, we probably aught to have a picture thread just for them, lol. I'd ask to see, but don't want to jack Viktor's thread anymore.

I think that’s great idea. When my wife and I met in 1986, we were both teenagers. She was driving a 1976 Camaro Type LT and I was driving a 1973 Nova SS. Both cars were near mint condition and her car was all hopped up. She only bought it because her girlfriend bought a brand new car and sold that one to my wife as her first car. Man that car could move. I drove hers more than my 145 horsepower, 2 barrel, Zero to 60 in 6 months Nova. We have had a bunch of awesome hot rods since then. I actually own a 1970 Nova SS 396 4 speed car and have for many years but it is in many pieces because it was from Iowa and VERY rusty. The original engine is long gone but it’s still an original Big Block car.
