  3. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    Maybe they produced it to commemorate the 1969 Camaro Z28 which boasts a 302, which produced proably over 400hp. If I recall it's a mix between a 283 and a 327 which yeilded surprising results. It was a highly successful motor which I'm glad GM did not forget about.

    Well said Laststop.
     
  5. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    Well, smaller engines rev faster, so it looks like Chevy's headed in the right direction. Now if only the Cavalier had a decent engine...
     
  6. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    a chevy 302 is a 283 block and 327 heads!
     
  7. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    Actually to everyone....the 302 was created for 1967 Camaro not 1969......it was ORIGINALLY intened to compete aginst the Trans-Am racing team on the track where they had a 5.0 Litre displacement cap.

    Now, to all of you......and the person who posted before me.....you mixed it up....

    The 302 is the BLOCK off the 350 (or 327, its the same block) with the CRANK off the 283......Thats what makes the 302.. =)

    And trust me i know becasue one of my goals in life is to build my own 302 and stick it in my 1984 Camaro Z28......<!-- Signature -->

  10. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    I read an article about it. It is a standard 351 engine but it was destroked thus making less displacement. The guys testing it out said it accelerated nicely and was a couple seconds faster than the stock camaro.
     
  11. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    actually the 302 is a 327 with a 283 crank in it. so you have a 4" bore and a 3" stroke in a engine that will readily spin to 9000 rpms. i built one for my camaro and with a set of 4.56 gears and a 5speed it goes through the traps at 119mph natural , and 134 mph with the bottle
     
  12. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    Dinan is right. The 302 revs crazy and is faster than a new SS. Ummmm, oh yea and this will shut up all those gay ass rustang lovers cuz they would get tore the #$%# up.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    One Question... If they are making a 302 why in the hell wouldnt they put it in the z-28? chevy lost their camero roots by putting a 350 in the z-28. IT'S A Z-28 FOR A REASON!!! A RACER WITH A 5.0 DISPLACEMENT!!! With the SS, Base, and RS all availible with a 350 why dies the "28" need it too. makes you wonder if the next SS truck that comes out will have a 4 banger?
    With this 302 and the new 4.2l I-6 bowties are becoming more traditional but with the power we deserve (the concept Trailblazer w/ 400+ hp!!!)
    GM 302-307 cid engines rev like hell. then you can destroke it had have a 10,000 rpm monster the only trouble is finding a damn tach with a 10k redline, drag racing is a ***** when the tach stops at 8k and you are up against a rotary mazda.

  15. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    the motor this 302 is made from has nothing in common whatsoever with the 283/327 combo from the past... and whatever dumbass keeps saying 351... the 5.7 liter LS1 this motor is based off of measures out at 346 cid, a 351 is a ford motor... yall need to keep your mouth's shut unless you know what you're talking about

    Tare the stang a new butthole? Camaro lovers already have a new butthole, and they're talkin out of it. Anybody heard of "concept"? No such hideous creature exists. It would, it could, it should, blah blah, blah. It won't, it can't, and it shouldn't. Besides, Camaro's dead; get over it.

  18. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    Yeah, that's like getting knocked out in a boxing match and then the next day say, "No, I was just on vacation, I was taking a break". Sure.

    P.S. Just in case the Camaro does actually come back in 2004, I've got to get all my fun in now before Chevy shuts me up. -See, you can't say I've been too hard on Camaro fans; I acknowledge what you've earned.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. The Real Deal

    Would any one like to know the truth? Its a 4.001in bore, 3in stroke. Because of this, it allows for a very high reving, low torque engine that is very effective in the lighter pony's. bravo chevy, for bringing back an american tradition.<!-- Signature -->

Same thing, marketing ploy by GM. All about money for both motor companies. They'll be back, and if they aren't well then I'll own a piece of history. I don't care if they do stop making them, I've already got one.

  23. Re: 302. WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

    I'm trying to figure out two things: how this car sucks and when the mustang will follow the camaro in the unproduced automobiles category.
    Now, I know that most of you are going "what the heck is this moron talking about?" Here you go. The camaro is no longer in production because of a decrease in sales; well, the mustang will be following it shortly. The market is no longer as large for these big daddies with their 4.6L or 5.0L or 5.7L V8's. Most of the new cars sold are all those little "rice rockets" that you all hate so much. I don't really know what all the hating is about. Isn't it about having a car that you like and appreciate and want to show the next car fan? Why must all of these threads turn into "imports suck" or "domestics suck"? I have often wondered this in my reading of posts. Can't read about a car you like without the other guys whining about why it sucks. Well, guess what, every car sucks in one way, shape, or form. It's a simple fact. One car has great acceleration and no top speed. A different car has a load of cargo room and yet does not perform well. The truth of the matter is that someone is always going to think a certain car sucks, like it or not. If they do not agree with your opinion, why on earth do you need to bash their preference or what they look for in a car?

    If you are still reading this, thank you very much.<!-- Signature -->

    Why? Why? Why? Why? Oh yeah, I forgot. Ford people can't refute because their argument will fall apart just like their cars! Hahahaha ah-hahahah <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
