Hello, You may want to start by shopping performance parts. You can do that at sites such as autopartswarehouse. They will let you select your car, then pop up a number of performance parts. This is an easy way to shop smartly; you can see the price for the parts, then decide what you want to do. Here is a link to get you started: http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/performance/parts.php?makeid=5&year=1989&modelid=30&categoryid= Best of luck! CarGrrl

Thanks for the response, I had asked the same question at another website that I go to alot. I am a Camaro FREAK. This one is my third.And I am planning to keep this one.The site I mentioned is, ecklerscamaro.net they have Tech's that can answer questions dealing with A paticular model of Camaro. Maybe you can help me with the response that I got from them as I had not heard of one of the parts (call me stupid) I said I love Camaro's not that I was the greatese Camaro Tech.Anyway here is the response I got. I hope i'ts okay to post it here. I did not see anything saying that i could not. Yes it’s possible to obtain 300 hp from your 305 engine. We suggest the following parts; headers, free flowing exhaust, ported throttle body, computer prom upgrade and performance pulleys. If you have the funds I would replace the stock factory cam with a Comp Cams or Crane Cam upgrade, which will really wake that engine up. I suggest that you contact the cam manufacture for their recommendations. Good Luck! Now I had or have still not heard of a ported throttle body. And i'm really not too sure about the computer upgrade.If it means a replacement or just a plug in for some adjustments.Thanks for any help that you acn be. I was just excited to hear that I can get the power I am looking for without changing engines all together. And thanks for the website I will follow up on that as soon as I complete this. Thanks tons, Terry L. White
