    Image: CHpg Staff

    In the last part of the THRS series, we had DeGroff's Cylinder Head Service build us a pair of street high-performance, 3800 Series II heads and we installed a Comp Cam and lifters.

    For the Camaro's first ten years, V8s outsold sixes by a considerable margin, but in 1977, with our country in the throes of an agonizing gasoline shortage, V6s sold on par with V8s. From then on, until production temporarily ceased after...

  • Building the Tom Henry RS






    The idea behind the "Tom Henry RS" Project was to modify a Fourth Generation Camaro, Powered by the 3800 Series II V6, to the point that some of its performance characteristics approached those of the latest V6 Camaros.

    Recent base-model Camaros come with GM's 3.6-liter, four-cam, direct-injected, "High-Feature V6" which puts out between 313 and 335- horsepower depending on the model year. Our project car build-up modified the...
