1982 Camaro ZZ4 Conversino Kit - Heart Trans Plant

Breathing New Life Into A Third-Gen Camaro With A Gm Zz4 Conversion Kit

New gaskets and seals were installed, ensuring there were no vacuum leaks.

Sean Murphy from JET knows his way around carburetors. It took just a short while for him to have this one completely rebuilt.

The fresh unit was reinstalled and we were ready for action!

Installing the new exhaust on a stock car is a bolt-on affair. Ours required a little special modification. New heat shields are included to keep the high heat from the catalytic converters from radiating through the car floor. The Flowmaster cat-back system was an easy installation.

Though not part of the ZZ4 conversion kit, this was the opportune time to swap out the old motor and transmission bushings. We opted for firm polyurethane pieces from Energy Suspensions.

New MSD spark plug wires were cut to size and the proper boots were fitted. MSD offers a special tool that makes customizing the wires a snap.

On LG4-equipped Camaros only one snorkel came on the cars. The ZZ4 conversion kit comes with an H.O. 305 dual snorkel air cleaner and a new set of air intakes.
