1968 Camaro W/ Duramax

Hey guys!

I posted this on DD. Thought I would share here too.

I thought I would share my build and the progress for the next several months.

I'm placing an LMM Duramax in a 68 Camaro. I picked up the car about 6 years ago. I wanted to drive the car for a while before tearing it apart, but after some small electrical problems that exposed other issues with the car I decided to park it at start tearing into it. The Camaro sheet metal is in very bad shape. Unfortunately, the lack of time I have (4 kids that are into sports) I'm having a fabricator shop complete all the welding (sheet metal, exhaust, and etc.) on the car for me.

Engine: 08 LMM Engine (stock for now). I will place twins and bigger injectors in if I can find some for the right price.

Chassis: Roadster SPEC Chassis (9" FORD Readend)

Brakes: Baer Pro 14" 6 piston calipers on all four corners

Transmission: Animal Performance Beast 4L80E

I will upload pictures soon. I welcome any input and discussions.

Pretty cool! My first car was a '67 Camaro. My 4th car was a '68 Camaro convertible. They are fun cars.
