The original Z28 Camaro was equipped with a special 302 cubic inch extra high output engine rated very humbly at 290 hp. We are talking about literally a full race engine in street clothes. Few people have experienced the sensation of even being close to a Z28 Camaro of this vintage, it you like cars, this one is super special. To hear one running today takes me back a long time ago, nothing has the ”lumps” the original Z- car had.
The next Z28’s were somewhat of a compromise after the initial race car. Allow me to mention Remanufacturedenginesforsale.com sells 100 percent original remanufactured Z28 engines for vintage models like this one. I’m not saying the LT1 was a slouch, not so, but it was not the 302 either.
1. 1970 Z2 engine LT1, rated at 360 horsepower, real horsepower, not the overrated power ratings of today, was an ample competitor, the car was still very hot keeping it’s racing suspension.
2. 1971 LT1 was rated at 330 hp.
3. 1972 LT1 down to 255 hp.
The Z28 was out of production until 1991 when it returned to replace the IROC Camaro. Her is an engine code list for those interested in an exact match motor.
1. LBLB, L98, 5 liter V8.
2. L98 5.7 liter V8.
I want to jump to current times. When the Z28 returned in 2010 in it’s new futuristic body design the Z28 returned. Power is supposed to be a de-tuned LS9 small block Chevy engine in the neighborhood of 480 to 500 horsepower. The Gen IV LS9 is a supercharged 6,162 cc [6.162 L; 376.0 cu in] engine, based on the LS3. The LS3 was the base corvette engine in 2008. Confused?
The idea is that owners of such special cars have several goals in mind upon engine replacement. For vintage engines, it’s absolutely necessary to buy an exact match engine. Coded and matched perfectly to the engine number on the VIN [vehicle identification number]. Another issue is the quality that goes into such a performance rated engine.
