402 cubic inch V8 big block that runs superbly and fits in the Camaro’s uber-clean engine bay without any major modifications. Everything looks very sharp under the hood, with Chevy Orange enamel on the block and a pair of chrome valve covers and matching air cleaner up top that provide plenty of pop inside the slick black engine bay. It isn’t too exotic with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and Hedman headers, but it’s incredibly effective, giving this Camaro eyeball-flattening performance. The 4-speed manual transmission drives power to a 12-bolt rear end with 3.31 gears inside, and that relatively tall gear makes it highway-friendly yet wicked off the line. Power steering and brakes are probably a good idea on a car that can generate this much speed this quickly, and the dual exhaust system is comprised of an X-pipe, replacement muffler, and correct tips that exit under the rear bumper so the soundtrack is formidable. Big chrome Rev wheels and 225/45/17 front and 255/50/17 rear performance radials do their best to hook it all up.
