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


Performance Chevy Crate Motors and suppliers:

The term "crate motors" refer to assembled engines ready to install and run. They typically do not include accessories (alternator, A/C, etc) and accessory brackets as these can be re-used. There is no shortage of performance crate engine options for the Chevy Camaro. Crate motors are a lower cost solution to a performance motor and often save you cost and time. Chevrolet is a major player in this field with a line of brand new engines from stock to high horsepower solutions.

This is where the First, Second and Third Generation 1982 to 1992 Camaro ownership beats out the Fourth Generation Camaro. Engine swaps are much easier to perform on the early generations Camaro because the engine can be lifted out vertically after the hood has been removed. Typically the Fourth Gen Camaros must be lifted on a hoist so the engine can be dropped under the vehicle. This process is required due to engine compartment design and the forward protruding windshield. This makes engine swaps a breeze on the Third Gen Camaro for the home mechanic or for the traveling racer.
