A comprehensive engine conversion package was developed to meet the divergent goals of increased vehicle performance while complying with vehicle emission control regulations for 1982-87 Chevrolet Camaros. Development revolved around revising a GM 5.7L Small Block off-road, emissions-exempt engine assembly to improve engine idle quality and low speed torque while maintaining off-road power output. The power output of the 5.7L engine drove upgrades in the remaining vehicle components, including the fuel system, engine controller calibration, induction/exhaust systems, and transmission calibration.
