Third Generation Chevy Camaro 1982 - 1992: Street Performance and Race Mods


Camaro Ignition and Electrical System:

Performance ignition and electrical equipment for the third gen Chevy Camaro: The most obvious performance gains can be had from performance ignition systems which boost spark but most importantly don't degrade in performance at higher RPMs where standard coils can't keep up and begin to produce a shorter spark of less amperage and voltage.

Replacement chips for the Electronic Control Module (ECM) can produce modest gains by optimizing for horsepower rather than mileage.

There are also a plethora of aftermarket gauges, lights and accessories to suit one's taste.

Ignition Systems:

Camaro engine coil
Replacement distributor cap with enhanced Hypertech high performance ignition coil and Accel performance 8mm ignition wires with a graphite core and a red silicone jacket.
This coil is capable of a 57% voltage gain over stock (45kV to 55kV) and is good up to 7000 RPM.
