So I saw this 1985 Camaro

275

Asked by Aug 03, 2011 at 10:59 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: Car Customization

And I was thinking about converting it to a 92 Z28, my Question is Can it be done Correctly and within a 6 month time frame. The '85 camaro is a base car with no spoilers or body kit its perfect for the conversion, but Its a V6 and I know that the whole v6 to V8 conversion is a pain in the azz, so what parts exactly would have to be changed ? If anyone has done this let me know.

I cam get a remanufacured 350 block from a engine shop near by, and a TPI set up from a Vette with harness and ecu, a used 700r4 and the whole bodykit of the 92 from Classic Industries, such as from end rear bumper / Tall Z28 spoiler and ground effects for 1500, and I can get the gauges from hawksthird gen parts but will the 92 gauges work on the 85 by simply swapping out clusters ?

Motor mounts trans mounts, new shocks and springs, drilled and slotted rotors, new pads, 3.23 gear ratio, but so I have to do anything else to the suspension ? other than shocks and brakes ?
