Like probably most people will say, you are probably better off looking for
a cheap wrecked f-bod with a v-8 to swap out the parts than to go with a S/C
etc. I wanted to do similar with my Camaro, but was told its not worth it,
so I bought a Formula with a V-8. :-) MUCH better.
Well catch ya later,
1985 Blue Camaro 2.8L w/ T-tops
Thats a awsome car. I've herd some people say that with a supercharger,
chip, air intake and exhause I would be running with the 8's. And if you
think about it I would have better acceleration because it's a 6 cylinder,
You have to have TORQUE for that to happen and a small displacement/small
stroke V6 won't cut it. Torque is what makes you go fast off the line. We're
not taking about a 400 cu in/large stroke 6 cyl here ...
Dollar for dollar you will be far ahead with a V8. With all the mods on your
V6 you're looking at around 350HP/MAYBE 350 lbs torque after poring in
thousands of dollars. The STOCK LS1 V8 is rated at 325HP/350 lbs torque right
out of the box. Put the same about of money into the LS1 and you're looking
at a 600+ HP engine!
