To clearify my ? (Vaccum advance diaphram) not can . So why is it there if it has no funtion?



The vacuum can still has the advance rod, although it does not move, the rod still needs to hold the advance plate in position and limit it.

What is the deal with the Vacuum can in the L88 pic. ?  There is no port.

L-88 AND ZL-1 did not use vacuum advance, only mechanical, as they were intended to be strickly race cars. So the stock vacuum can is factory sealed. These motors run much better with an adjustable vacuum can and manifold vacuum advance, as these motors love LOTS of advance due to the high piston dome.

Old Chevrolet engineering dyno test show 575@6800rpm for the ZL-1. Mine was right on that figure.

Van Nuys was different then Norwood. They must have used something, because the bottom just got body overspray. Original paint car.

Ho Hum, another overpriced euro car. Sounds like a Honda.

Here is an American Muscle Car. Totally stock 1969 ZL-1 motor shoved into my old SS (I no longer own). Just goofing around and not full throttle or going fast.

(moderators: this was filmed on a private road, we were not speeding, no laws were broken. No animals were harmed. That Ferarri is on a public road going above the speed limit)

Here is the sound:

I live a half hour from Temecula and did not here about the Rod run this time, otherwise I would have brought my Turbo Rocket there!

Not a first gen but its still a Camaro..  This was what I was racing back in the early - mid 2000's..  I really miss this car..  Should have kept it..

Small world, I had one of those too! Very fast cars, I had the Vortech intercooled Supercharger package on mine to keep it California smog legal. No other mods 6 speed: 12.45 @117
Here it is at the Famous and now closed Carlsbad Raceway back in 2001:

Only made a couple runs, no traction at all of course, 8.24sec at 88.727 mph. On street tires, leaving black marks the whole 1/8 mile, and granny shifting my original M20. About equal to high 12's at 110 mph 1/4 mile, which is right in line with the track test from 1969 of a stock ZL-1 Camaro. Motor is bone stock ZL-1 with headers and full exhaust, 91 octane and dialed back timing. Stock suspension.

mmm...
Whats that mean? I put that ZL-1 motor in it to race. If you went running, wouldn't you put running shoes on?
