With factory engines being increasingly efficient and emissions testing limiting some of the bolt-on products, 50-state-legal supercharger kits have become very popular as big horsepower adders. The OEM’s agree as they are also switching to forced induction. A 200hp increase on pump 93 octane is easy with only a 2.8 Kenne Bell Twin Screw Supercharger Kit. A big step up from a little 2.3 front inlet. More hp than all the bolt-ons combined. Their proven “rear inlet” design features a huge 4.5-inch Mammoth inlet system and a real cool-air kit with the filter mounted under the front valance in cool, dense air. 1,400hp-rated Ultra Hi-Density intercooler and big dual-pass heat exchanger. Larger 3.2, 3.6, and 4.2 kits are available for higher hp/boost applications (up to 1,800hp) in polished or black. Patented Liquid Cooling optional. All kits are Kenne Bell factory tuned so re-tuning is unnecessary.

These spindles from Classic Performance Products are a direct bolt-on for 1967-’81 Camaros (early Camaro kit uses original or CPP replacement steering arms) and utilize a C5 bearing hub assembly. By utilizing a sealed bearing pack, factory spindle pin flex, which causes caliper piston push-back, is eliminated. This condition is especially problematic on aftermarket multi-piston, radial-mount-style calipers. They also utilize C5 brakes or aftermarket alternatives (a direct fit for Baer, Brembo, and Wilwood C5 applications). The early A/F/X-body tall spindle helps with improved geometry by giving a better camber change during suspension movement and also maintains the drum brake offset. The second-generation Camaro spindle is the first of its kind, and exclusive to CPP. Complete brake kits include spindles, slotted and drilled rotors, loaded calipers, sealed bearing packs, and mounting hardware. These kits use a 13-inch rotor and require a minimum 17-inch wheel. These kits are available with black or red calipers. Kits start at $649.

Global West offers extended travel coilover kits for 1967-’81 Camaros. This addresses the problem of bottoming out with really low vehicles. The kits extended the shock mount on the frame and on the lower control arm. This increases the shock length that allows for additional travel with lowered ride heights. The springs also convert over to a common 2-1/2-inch id spring, giving you more spring rate selections. The components can be purchased several ways; however, for best results purchasing the upper and lower arms with the frame mount kit are ideal. Springs and shocks are options depending on the brand of shock or spring rate required. All these components use stock frames.
