We decided to put some R-E-S-P-E-C-T back into our project car, a third generation F-body Camaro, that we have dubbed Project Respect. We opted to upgrade the 700R4 stock transmission with a heavy-duty TCI Super Streetfighter 700R4 transmission package.

In our quest to bring some props to the oft maligned third-gen F-Body Camaros, we have begun upgrading our project car with an all new set of hoops from Weld Racing. This update includes the RT-S wheels as well as upgrades to the new tires with Toyo.

With a paltry $1,500 budget, we picked up this stellar ’91 Camaro RS. It proves affordable project cars are still available. We even put it on the dyno and took it to the track for baseline numbers. Read on to find out what we plan to do with our new project car, what’s in store, and what to expect!
According to the guys over at Spohn Performance – who specialize in everything suspension for virtually everything domestic – one of their more frequently asked questions is “whats the difference between the standard crossmember mounted torque arm and your Pro-Series crossmember mounted torque arm?”
Welcome to the new Street Legal TV project – “No Bucks.” While you’ve seen a lot of cars go through our shop and get the ‘money is no object’ treatment, we realize that in the real world, making something from (almost) nothing is the rule. In keeping with that budget build philosophy, the goal of this project was for each and every phase, including the purchase of the car, to cost no more than $1,500.
In previous installments, this 1991 Camaro, known as “Project No Bucks” has been treated to exhaust and tire upgrades as well as a 75-shot nitrous install and some ignition goodies. Now its time to update the two decade-old underpinnings of this F-body runner and improve on the archaic suspension pieces with some help from Spohn Performance and Lakewood.

Since we had a chance to swap out a set of shorty Hooker headers on our Project “Respect” Camaro in favor of Hooker’s new Darkside ceramic coated long tube headers, we thought it would be a good opportunity to see if our preconceived ideas about long tubes and coatings were correct or not.
Since 1990, our trusty V8 305 Camaro has been true to form: Lots of promise, little delivery. 305 cubic inches, and slow as sin. Stacked against it’s then competition and bitter rival – the mustang 5.0 with 302 cubic inches, it was almost laughable. Our Camaro had 3 more cubic inches and was 3 seconds slower.
