    Smile my new 97 camaro ss pretty quick!!!

    Prestine 1997 Camaro SS. Car has all SLP documentation in owners manual supplement, door jams etc. Car has been garage kept its entire life. Paint is flawless (with the exception of some rock chips and a small area on front bumper (under license plate frame)), it doesn’t even look like its over 10 years old. Silver stripes are custom painted using a matte finish. Interior is in perfect shape, no cuts tears or rips in any of the seats. The back seats have probably seen use once or twice in their lifetime. Engine is a custom 391 cu in LT1 built by Midwest Engine Tech in IL and installed and tuned by FLP in Naperville IL. On Midwest Engine Tech’s Dyno, the engine made 500.5 hp and a nice flat torque curve with a max 460.9 ft/lbs of torque. Attached is the dyno chart from Midwest Engine Tech. Car also chassis dyno’d 410hp/400tq N/A and 518hp/558tq on the 100 shot and 600hp/583tq on a 200 shot. Car has never been raced or even seen the track. It made the trip on Power Tour with zero hitches. This car fires up and drives like stock. Any questions please feel free to ask. Thanks.

    Nice clean LT-1 SS, very nice laundry list of mods too Car should be good for mid-high 11's on nuts and go well into the 10's on the sauce. I had a heads/cam 1996 Grandsport vette that went 12.2@115 on motor and 10.9@127 on a 150 shot (on a drag radial).

    Congrats on your new ride
