You can use either hooker headers (part # 2457) or if you have some extra money, go to Dougs headers ( for the 502 to fit in the 69 Camaro.  You will definitely need to change the oil pan to a 4 quart pan to clear the crossmember.  There is an oil pan offered that is specifically made for the 502 in a 69 Camaro.  Other than that, everything will fit fine.

542  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 standard to RS front conversion. on: March 13, 2007, 08:10:26 PM
The lower valance does not have to be changed for the 67.  You can cut your existing non RS to accomodate the front lights.  You need the headlight buckets, the RS fender adaptors, the relays, motors and wiring, 4 limit switches and an underdash wiring diode harness to adapt your headlight switch.  The one thing I found out the hard way was that the limit switches are one way.  Even though they look exactly alike, the wires have electric in and out wires so to speak.  I could not figure out why my system didn't work when I did the conversion as I have everything correct.  Finally, I revesed the limit switches and everything worked fine.  If you need any additional info, email me and I will answer your question.  I converted my entire system and when done, looked perfect.

543  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Exhaust resonator...what does it do? on: February 25, 2007, 01:23:54 AM
Looking at the factory exhaust systems for 69 Camaro with big block.  I see that D&R classics offers a system with and without a resonator.  So, what is a resonator and what does it do?  Does is make the system sound deeper? 

I was looking for an aftermarket setup such as Flomaster for a 69 Camaro with big block with exhaust manifolds but all I can seem to find are systems for headers.  Does anyone know of an aftermarket kit that will work with factory exhaust manifolds? 


544  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1969 Camaro Big Block Radiator/Electric Fan Suggestions? on: February 24, 2007, 10:31:40 PM
I am building a 69 Camaro with a ZZ502 and manual transmission.  What do you guys recommend for a radiator/electric fan setup that will work well.  I am looking to make this a daily driver so stand still in traffic cooling is important.  Also, I see 2 row vs. 3 row.  1"/1.25"/1.5" tubes?  Is more and bigger necessarily better?

I was considering a Fluidyne radiator with a Perma-cool dual fan setup.  I like the looks of the perma cool fans as they are tuff looking and have a 5,900 cfm rating.  I really like the Fluidyne radiator as they have a 3 row setup whereas the others I have looked at have only two rows.  More rows means better cooling...right?  Here is the setup:


However, I am not married to this setup and have not made any final decisions.  I can certainly be persuaded by you more experience professionals out there.  My major concern is keeping everything cool.

Thanks guys,

545  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Camaro pic needed for the home page for March on: February 22, 2007, 01:37:55 PM
The next person to send me a pic of their 67 Camaro gets to be on the home page for the entire month of March.  Many of the months have only 30 days or less...but if you act now, you get to see your car on the front page of this website for an entire 31 days.  That is 3.3% more exposure.  We're talkin an extra 24 hours for everyone in world to oogle at your car and wish it was their.  One whole extra day to show off your ride.  So act now...this is a limited time offer.  (Some restrictions may apply, Ford owner need not submit).

Also, for all you 68 and 69 owners out there, send your pics on it.  I only have a couple of 68's left, so you will see your car soon.  69 owners, send yours in to.  Though I have some ready to go...I am always looking for more.

And hey, If you have a green Camaro and send it in, I will make your car the car of the month for your year in celebration of St. Patty's day. 

Thanks guys,

Send em to

546  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / ideas and pics of where to mount a fuel pump & regulator in a 69 Camaro. on: February 22, 2007, 01:36:52 AM
Any ideas that work well when installing a new electric holley fuel pump and fuel regulator in a 69 Camaro with a 502.  I know I need to install the pump as close to the tank as possible and the regulator as clost to the carbs as possible as well.  Any ideas?  If so, please let me know.  Also, if you can, send a pic.  I have a 502 BB with a holley 850 double pumper with dual feed lines. 

Any help is always appreciated.


547  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Recommendation for electric fuel pump for 502 big block on: February 22, 2007, 01:01:13 AM
got my fuel pump and regulator...where is a good place to mount either of them.  Any chance of a pic of this to refer to?  Finally, what psi should I be running at with a 502 motor and an 850 double pumper holley?

Hey Daytonakid,

What about the side post batteries for the late 69 Camaro?  Any plans on making these as well?

The seats should be the exact change.  I have recovered 69 standard seats with houndstooth and they fit perfectly.

551  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 5th Generation Camaro Convertile finally revealed. on: February 18, 2007, 12:44:53 AM
Here it is...looks great to me.

552  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Recommendation for electric fuel pump for 502 big block on: February 18, 2007, 12:41:45 AM
Is this the pump you were referring to?

Here is Summit Racing's in house pump. It looks to be the exact same thing only about $55 cheaper.  It looks like maybe Holley is building this for Summit to put their own name on it.  Is this the same pump or should I stick with the name brand Holley?

Where does the regulator normally get installed?  Near the inlet to the dual line to the carb?  Any chance of getting a pic of a proper installation location? (send to

Also, what is the reason to have the fuel pump installed closer to the tank as opposed to near the engine compartment?  Just curious.

Sorry to ask so many questions, but this is my first really big build.  I am used to original restorations where there is a map to follow.  Never really ventured this far from factory I am learning as much as I can and having fun.

Thanks for the is appreciated.

553  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 18, 2007, 12:38:59 AM
Where can I find a step header to fit my 69 Camaro.  Do you know which brand and/or part number I should get for a Big Block?

554  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Recommendation for electric fuel pump for 502 big block on: February 17, 2007, 11:14:39 PM
Okay, for my next shameless request in my neverending pursuit of knowledge and picking the brain of those of you who know.  What do you guys recommend for an electric fuel pump.  It is for my 69 Camaro with a 502 big block.  I have 3/8 fuel line as well.  Is the size of this line adequate?  Do I need a fuel regulator as well and if so, what is recommended?  Finally, Where should the fuel pump be installed?  As close to the engine as possible or will anywhere under the car along the frame be okay? 

Thanks guys,

555  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 17, 2007, 08:50:57 PM

what is a step header?  Also, what do you recommend for this type of header for a 69 Camaro with a 502.  I have rack and pinion so the steering box is no longer an issue.

Finally, I am more interested in low end torque and off the line response...not top end.  So if I go with mainfolds how bad am I really hurting the power?

Thank you,
