Cool, but what do you mean by “DP”, you referring to a Demon Carb?
When did they (GM) start fuel injecting those? It seems like I read ‘bout their “cross fire” injection system in ’85 but the may’ve been injected before that.

DP= Double Pumper

The Early 80's Camaro's had the TBI (throttle Body injection) kinda a mix between a carb and a FI

I can only recall the Cross fire injections being on the V6 Camaros

up until 87 i think the v8's had the TBI and then was Changed to Full F.I as TPI (tuned Port Injection)

I don't understand what the problem with the "Camero" is. Today the Mustang is the current fad car but it's the same market niche as the Camaro, and no one makes fun of it. And historically the mustang is just as big of a mullet staple.

It's the same type of car and both were fine cars in their day. I wonder why the Camaro gets ire and the Mustang doesn't.

Piece of shit car

That ****in' pile of shit
Never gets me very far

My car's a big piece of shit
'Cause the shocks are ****ing shot
And my seatbelt's ****ing broken
I got to tie it in a knot
(It's a piece of shit)

I can't see through the windshield
'Cause it's got a big ****ing' crack
And the interior smells real bad
'Cause my friend puked in the back
(It's a piece of shit)

(Piece of shit car)
Piece of shit car
(He's got a piece of shit car)
It sucks royal dick
(That ****in' pile of shit)
100% crap
(Never gets him very far)
Oh **** you car

It's got no CD player, it only got the 8-track
Whoever designed my car can lick my sweaty nut sack
(They can bite his ass too)
And I got no ****in' brakes
I'm always way out of control
Eleven times a day I hear "Hey, watch it asshole"
(You ****in' piece of shit)

(Piece of shit car)
I got piece of shit car
(He got a piece of shit car)
Diesel gas sucks my ass
(That ****in' pile of shit)
That pile of metal shit
(Never gets him very far)

Oh what the **** did I do
What the **** did I do
What the **** did I do
To get stuck with you
You're too wide for drive-thru
And you smell like the shoe
But I'm too broke to buy something new
Oh **** me

Well the engine likes to flood
The car always ****in' stalls
And the seat cushion's got a big rip
So a spring always pokes the balls
(Ouch, ouch, ouch)
Plus the door locks are busted
I gotta use a ****ing coat hanger
(What a pain in his ass)
And if a girlie sees my car
There's no chance I'll ever bang her
(He never ever gets da pussy)
Hey shut up
(Piece of shit car)
You piece of shit car

(You got a piece of shit car)
You piece of shit car
(Piece of shit car)
Bald ****in' tires
(You got a piece of shit car)
No rearview ****ing mirror
(Piece of shit car)
Seven different colors
(You got a piece of shit car)
****ing rag for a gas cap
(Piece of shit car)
Tailpipe makes the sparks fly everywhere
(You got a piece of shit car)
(Piece of shit car)
(You got a piece of shit car)
(Piece of shit car)
Oh the whole town thinks I'm a loser
(You got a piece of shit car)
Cabby give me a push

Probably cause Mustang-head doesn’t rhyme with Arrowhead the way Camaro does. It doesn’t roll off the tongue as easily and would be harder for the simple minded to regurgitate. :thumb:

Please, the mullet-mustang ratio is about 1/100th of the mullet-camaro ratio.

I would add one more thing to make the statements true about arrowhead:

Mullets - Camaros - Smokers

It's the trifecta, and I'm sorry they all exist is mass numbers at arrowhead. Last week at the game I was snapping mullet pictures with my phone, and I'll be dammned if I didn't run out of memory before I ran out of mullets.

I have to totally disagree here. As someone who comes from a dubtee family lineage and has a number of relatives who are active mullets and doral smokers, I can tell you that the mustang is just as popular with that set if not moreso.

I guarantee if you asked all these relatives what car they wish they had right now they would all say Mustang. One of them still drives a mid 90s mustang, and a number of them formerly drove the pissant compact 80s mustangs. (although one of them had an 80s IROC)

Maybe my going to college, family moving to the city, keeping my hair above the shirt collar, etc., has darkened my understanding of dirtbillies but I think that my experience is accurate.

There is no such thing as a 2002 cobra. 2003 was the first year for the supercharger in the modern era Cobra, and the 2001 cobra was naturally aspirated. The 2001 Cobra was 320hp 317lbft torque. The Z28 camaros were in the same HP range, but had more torque, which usually made them faster at the strip, with equal drivers.

I am looking at the gm site now. I think it is possible the monte and the gto are on the same chasis. Different panels can disguise a frame pretty well i.e. hummer and suburban. I could be wrong
If they were, I doubt they'd have gone to Australia to get the Monaro chassis. My understanding, and this is just conjecture on what I've read, is that the GTO running gear shares more characteristics with the 5 series than anything GMC.

The GTO I like, I'd rather push one of those than any of the entry level sports cars listed here.

They moved from 350bhp to 400 this year. I'm still holding out for the full blown 505bhp LS-5.

'til then, I'll keep running my reliable GTP.

Course you know as well as I do that if you’re a true acceleration junky, you’re not gonna waste your time with a factory four wheeled cage. ;)

True, true. The GTO would be a lot warmer on my commute in the winter though :D

Aside from a tranny not up to the HP [replaced one at 50K in my 97 and replaced on at 85K in my '00], not problems. Knock wood.

I've been thinking about getting a '00 or '01, any complaints?

faulty equipment or operator error? that is awfully low miles for a tranny

Just the tranny.
other than that, the only thing I've replaced, aside from wipers/brake pads etc., is a light in the 3rd brake and a rear proportioning valve [nothing, a $20, 20 minute fix].

I like to get up to traffic speed with . . . authority. But it's not like I'm out street racing or doing burnouts or anything.

And when it goes, it goes. Working perfect to spinning revving free and unencumbered in an instant.

Music to the ears, isn’t it?
Nothing sounds quite as harmonic as a well tuned/balanced motor spinning rapidly towards redline.
I’m get’n chills just think’n ‘bout it.

Not exactly, I was referring to a working tranny transforming into a do nothing slushbox while I sat at a red light.
