Topic: What are some simple ways to add horsepower/reduce weight of my camaro?
January 18, 2020 / By Alanis Question:
I have a 91 camaro RS with a 5.0 (305) and it's already pretty fast, but I would like to add some horsepower here and there. I don't race it and I'm not willing to put thousands of dollars into it. I also often have passengers in it so I dont wanna tare apart the interior. Any simple horsepower gains you know of? And what are some things that the car definitely doesn't NEED that I could remove? I already took out the cat converter but that was more for sound not weight reduction (and i know people that will help me pass an inspection). Just some simple, cheap suggestions. Its carburated by the way and I have an edelbrock air cleaner.
thanks for your help asshole. and yeah, it sounds better. I hear it not you.
By sound deadening material do you mean the carpets and stuff? Or is there specific things youre talking about that I could take out?
it is a tbi. what wires are you talking about? theres so much stuff under there that i didnt expect to see but im not ripping just anything out. and where is the spare tire?/is there one? if there is i would like to take that out
that helped in my other car

Best way to add horsepower is to improve how fast the engine brings in air and expells the burnt exhaust. I would do a intake, header and a real exhaust up grade. After that i would go with a mild after market cam
To reduce weight, go through the interior of the car and remove all of the sound deading material....

One way that is very helpful for diet is to eat 4 smaller meals than 3 meals. Also, continual drinking of water (not other fluids) will help. With the foods you eat, make sure they are ones that do not have a high sodium content, this will make your body hold onto water and change your metabolic rate. Also, try to eat one starch (about 20 carbs of plain, if possible, rice, potato, corn, etc), one fruit (15 grapes, an apple, orange, pear that is the size of your fist, and 1-2 vegetables at the last two meals.
If you eat at the same time every day, your body will be on a schedule and you will know when you will be hungry. And once again, keep the water coming.
If your carb'ed and HEI now rather than throttle body injected you can do quite a few things
Get a dizzy recurve kit and use the light and med weight springs out of kit, keep your stock weights and center plate
Set timing at idle to 16* BTDC with vac line un hooked and plugged off
K&N air filter to fit your air cleaner housing
Install headers, aftermarkert Y pipe, single 3" cat back system
Yes the sound deadening is the pad under the carpet.. Kinda made onto the carpet of third gens.
I replaced my stock carpet with the thin speaker box type carpet.
The stock carpert and sound deadener weighed 52 lbs... The thin speaker box stuff to do my whole car weighed 7 lbs
If your running a carb now, then you dont need the computer and 75% of the wires under the hood.. All that stuff on mine weighed in at 10 lbs
Yo can go to a fiberglass hood. My stock steel hood weighed 67 lbs, my harwood bolt on 4" cowl glass hood weighs 51.

element administration and replace everyday snacks with healthy ones. I as quickly as lost over 30 pounds via purely proscribing my element to a minimum of one bowl (approximately 10 ounce soup bowl) of despite substantial dish I cooked for dinner (something from stew to casseroles) and ingesting a bowl of soup for lunch. I had uncooked greens for a snack alongside with 2 end result an afternoon, and shrink earlier on breads. No sweetened beverages the two. I walked a pair miles an afternoon too, while the climate replaced into respectable.

Your spare tire is located in the rear hatch area on the passenger side. open hatch and locate the three BIG plastic screws and remove, lift up and in on the panel, the spare is behind there.

it's an enzyme in the pineapple and papaya that helps. fresher is better
the first few hours is when you need the ice packs then warm packs for a day or so. in about two days most swelling should be down
