    Best Exotic Cars to Lease in Los Angeles

    Exotic cars are the best vehicles for wedding celebrations and corporate events. They are also ideal for travelers who want to explore Los Angeles.

    Fortunately, tons of businesses in the United States offer exotic car leasing. They designed different programs that allow us to enjoy both short-term and long-term car rentals. We know that most of our readers want to drive a one-of-a-kind car, and if you are one of them, this article is ideal for you.

  • Tom Henry RS Pt 3: Engine Assembly, Driveline Mods, Brake Upgrades and Dyno Testing.



    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.

    In this part of the story, we're going to finish off the engine. Next, we're going to add some HD parts to the driveline appropriate for our modified engine's torque output and do some upgrades to the car's brakes. Finally, we'll go to the chassis dyno to validate our...

  • Building The Tom Henry RS Part Two: Heads And Valvetrain

    In the first part of this series, a Flowmaster exhaust, SLP 1.8:1 rockers and other, minor bolt-ons, gained us 17-hp at the wheels. Clearly, our V6 Camaro's response to mods is promising and there's potential in the 3800 Series II engine, so now, we're going to get more serious about performance enhancement.

  • Building The Tom Henry RS Part One: Easy Stuff First

    Since Camaro's 1967 debut, a six-cylinder engine ('67-'79, I-6; '80-'02 and '10-up V6) has been either standard or for four years in the early-’80s when General Motors made the awful mistake of an inline-four for a base engine, a midlevel option.

    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...
