1989 Camaro RS 5.0Lit Tbi. Vin#1G1FP21E7KL137460.without spending thousnads of dollars.if so tell me where to start and I will get my local Tech. right on it. I would rather not change engines if possible. And I can't spend 2 or 3 thousand dollars.I was told that it does have a roller engine so thats a plus if i'ts correct.I know it must be possible,just not sure where to start. Thanks for any help.

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
