Spectacular is one word for the 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. It’s as audacious as the bodywork, wearing bright green paint, but it’s also remarkably docile, with a hydraulic cam and pump gas-friendly pistons inside. An Edelbrock aluminum intake and Demon 750 CFM 4-barrel carburetor deliver the fuel, while a set of long-tube headers use Flowmaster mufflers to handle the exhaust via a set of turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle. There’s a big aluminum radiator up front, a March serpentine belt drive assembly for reliability, and all-new hardware and plumbing throughout. The Camaro’s suspension wasn’t modified besides a set of tubular lower control arms and custom springs to lower it a bit, and a set of C5 Corvette brakes give it impressive stopping power. The aforementioned TH400 feeds a reinforced 12-bolt rear with 3.23 gears on a Posi limited slip, making it comfortable under any conditions. Blacked-out Foose wheels look great against the green bodywork and carry fat 245/40/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials.
