COMP Cams Camaro Restoration Project Nearing Completion

After many days of “dirty work,” the COMP Cams Camaro is now on the fun part of the build. With the body in paint and the RHS LS built and dyno-tested, things are looking better every day.

Gone are the days of looking for surprise rust and hogging old paint. Now that we are over the hump and on to paint and assembly, the day’s hard work is rewarded with visually satisfying shiny paint and new parts.

The crew at Butler Performance in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, have enthusiastically branched into the LS market after years of making big power for Pontiacs. They assembled and dyno-tested the RHS-based LS, and V8 Speed & Resto Shop has nestled it into the Camaro’s subframe and hung the front sheet metal to begin the journey of turning it into a proud runner. They are working timely and efficiently, and we can’t thank them enough for their commitment and dedication to the project.

The Camaro’s original engine was a new-for-the-day SB2 NASCAR engine built by Richard Childress Racing. After living a less than easy life, the 700 HP mill was retired in lieu of a more updated engine to help showcase the COMP Performance Group product line and celebrate COMP Cams’ 40th anniversary.
