1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought my 1990 Rs for $700, it had 190,000 miles on it and ran super strong. It was a 5.0 tbi automatic. I abused that engine and trans for 2 years straight ( racing, burnouts,horrendous over- revving) and it took it like a champ. The engine started to knock at 240,000 and it was replaced with a mildly built 350, and a T5 trans. This car now screams. I would recommend these cars to anyone that is looking for a cheap, fast, well handling car.


Favorite Features

I love everything about this car.


Suggested Improvements

The stock 2.73 rear gear ratio wasn't great. An upgrade to the disk brake posi rear is much better.

1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z 2dr Hatchback


Review

I drove a dark red 1988 Iroc-Z in high school. It was the greatest present a man could give to his son. She was strong, fast, powerful, loud and impressive. The 5-speed was matched beautifully to that 5.0 liter. We had a 3.73 rear end with full time posi. She got off the line like no other. I never had any issues at all with her. I damn near cried when I sold her.


Favorite Features

Transmission- shifter felt great in the hand, and the long throws made you feel like you were turning the world upside down with all that torque.


Suggested Improvements

Interior space- but it is a muscle car so no big deal.

1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z 2dr Hatchback


Review

The stock car has great handling and power. The interioe is well planned and the T-tops add the feel of a convertible without compromising the structural integrity of the vehicle. Almost infinite possibilities to make aftermarket improvements to the engine and suspension. Absolute best car for the money. With the right after market add-ons this car can run against any foreign or domestic sport ride.

Review

this unit is super quick, fast and stong. remember, a poor or moderate comfort rating is desirable in a performence car. it has 245 hp and 345 lb/ft of torque in standard form. the 1990-'92 f-body may be the best performer of all four generations. motor trend magaine tested this in the march 1990 issue with a 0-60 time of 5.8 seconds. and this test was without factory option slp. this was a short model year, so all '90 models were made during the last three months of 1989. why so short? g.m. did not renew its contract with the i.r.o.c. and was not licensed to use 'iroc' starting january 1990.


Favorite Features

factory option slp. this two thousand dollar option adds 50 hp, 50 lb/ft of torque, and improves 1/4 mile time by one second. with this option, it will keep up with the famed 1987 buick gnx. :)


Suggested Improvements

better left without a driver airbag. the rear end (gears) changed in 1990 from 3.27 to 3.23. this gear change slightly compromises performance. a larger gas tank would be better too.
