My new 2000 camaro z28

Figured now that I bought it, I'd make a thread for it instead of my test drive thread.

It's a 2000 chevy camaro z28 auto. It has ttops,leather interior, monsoon sound system, and pretty much anything else u could think of. It's fully loaded for a z28.

Current mods: longtube headers, ORY to stock system.AIR, egr and cat is all deleted. Horsepower sales down here tuned it. He told me the tune is pretty mild and that I could get more out of it. Also 17x9.5 vette wheels on all fours !

PO used as a daily driver, he did all the mods to it and has kept the car pretty clean.

Here's a few pics I snapped . I just started cleaning the engine bay in the second engine pic

Thanks guys. I've been driving it around today. It's soo fastttt. It chirps through the gears!! I just had a little tango with a ls1 ws6 . It seemed stock and some lady was driving it. She ended up following me for blocks. So at the light we had some fun .

The first thing I'm doing is changing the oil and making sure all fluids are good. Then a slp lid will be going on. And I'm installing the ram air system from my bird onto this.

Don't wreck it before you get to enjoy it bro. Not advised.

Nothing like an auto that can chirp the tires!

Still prefer my 6-speed lol

Good stuff man. LS cars are some of the best for the money, hands down imo.

What type/kind of tires have you got? New and better tread was one of the first things I did and made a HUGE difference.

They are nexen tires with some aggressive looking tread.(I'd have to go look and see wat they are exactly) They still have plenty of tread left . But the car has little traction wen I get on it and The wheels spun through the gears . I'm thinking wen I do need tires I will get something grippy, cuz these don't cut

Just switched my Ssra ram air system to the camaro and did the free ram air mod. It should help out a lot compared to the stock intake setup.

The bird has the free ram air mod with a slp lid . Plus the bird has a tranny cooler that will now see more air since this ram air intake won't be in front of it.

Nice buy, man. She looks pretty clean, especially for a modded car. I've enjoyed reading about your V6 build, I look forward to seeing what you do to this car!

Thanks!! Yea she's clean. This car won't be modded any further for a while. Just a slp lid and maybe some exhaust. Down the rd it might get some major mods like heads and cam. But it's just a sweet DD for now.

The v6 Is balls to the wall modded. I still got more mods planned for it if I keep it. But now I'm in love with my LS1 and would rather sell the v6 and mod the z28.

Qtp headers to 4in ORY . Not any time soon. It actually sounds great through the stock 2.75 catback

Ok guys my oil change light has been coming on when I start it up. So I'm looking to change the oil . I've never done an oil change on a ls1 so If anyone has any pointers let me know! I'm going with mobile 1 oil 10w30 and a mobile 1 filter. Also how many miles is a synthetic oil change good for?
