1989 Chevy Camaro IROC-Z - Street Heat

Crossing Generations

View Full Gallery

Chris Walsh of St. Charles, Missouri, prefers a generation mix-match to bring out the best of his '89 IROC. The Z is now in its second incarnation, now sporting a fresh black paint job to enhance the '91 bumpers, ground effects, and spoiler. The door handles, antenna, and side moldings have all been shaved. An ASCD SS hood was also installed by the owner and painted Dupont Super Jet Black with ChromaLusion Royal Plum enhancing the hood scoop. The rear brakes and axle are from a '99 Z28, buttoned up with Motive 4.10 gears and an LPW girdle. Meanwhile, a 355ci L98 with a Super Ram motivates the '89 Z that is enriched by an LPE 219 cam, ported Corvette aluminum heads with Manley valves and Comp valve springs, LPE 58mm T-body, and Mac headers. An Ed Wright chip, MSD 6AL ignition, LS1 dual fans, and Racetronix fuel pump preside over the festivities. The L98 is prodded by a T56 with fortified shift forks and a Pro 5.0 shifter. The suspension was not left out either; a complete list of Spohn components as well as Tokico springs and Bilstein shocks dial in the chassis.
