Toms 1988 Camaro RS is the first featured ride to be featured twice.  There has been alot of change since first featured back in November 2000!
Tom is the original owner, driving it off the dealership lot back in '88 with a 305 TBI engine!

When last featured, it had the same block, but different heads, a SuperRam and a smaller camshaft.  That was all scrapped for AFR 195 heads, a larger Comp Cams grind (236/242) and a new outlook in Multi-port fuel injection, the LT1 intake manifold modified for the Small Block Chevy!

The interior hasn't changed much, still has the Recaro seats.  The only other change was to accomodate the shifter for the T-56 manual transmission.


Before the Cam Swap, it ran 12.94 @ 108.14

It put down 343 RWHP @ 5600 RPM
and 361 ft/lbs of TQ @ 4600 RPM
