Avoiding The FAIL Of My Last LS SWAP *67 Camaro Rear-End Upgrades*

I bought a 67 Camaro RS for only $6,500 and I'm taking it to LS Fest East in only 6 days.
Now that the Powerglide transmission and the LS2 from J&J Auto Wrecking is ready to go, we're going to try to install it and get everything else ready to go as well. As always, things don't exactly go according to plan. The LS2 is getting the complete Holley EFI treatment and some BRAND NEW HK Wheels as well. To get that power to the ground we're rebuilding the entire rear-end and adding a posi-trac from Yukon Gear and Axle.

It pains me to watch you have this beautiful classic camero and you put a nice engine upgrade the differential to a positrac, REALLY NICE TOUCH, but what I cannot understand is why didn't you cleanup the frame and repaint the engine compartment or sandblast it and paint the frame before sticking in that V8 monster into her. Its not like you don't have the resources to do this build correctly. This isn't just some newer piece of cheap aluminum with a computer chipped engine, thats a rare classic I would give my right are to own, use to own on a 67 camero, well maybe my left, I use my right arm more 😁, but still, dude, put some real love into that car, or give it to someone who will, if I wasn't disabled and had the money I would buy that baby from you. You can keep the engine I just want the car. 😁 Okay just had to give you some grieve alittle because its a classic car and they need all the love they can get now, but I do love your videos.

That "Balls McGirk" LS2 mated to the 1st Gen 2-spd Powerglide pops helped you prepare is going to destroy that "10 bolt posi" even without a turbocharger added.. 70 was the last year a 12 bolt posi were offered by GM.. but a Ford 9" would still last longer if you plan to do "donuts".

They didn't heat it enough to affect the hardening. It's generally in the instructions to chill the carrier and heat the ring gear to ease install. They probably get hotter running down the road.

What I’m really surprised at is that single leaf rear suspension, I thought only 6 cylinder cars got that. My 69 firebird only had the 350 2 bbl and it had the multi leaf suspension. Reminds me of the 4 lug 6 cylinder mustang verses the 5 lug v8.

That is a 10 bolt rear. With the extra hp, it needs a 12 bolt. My 65 Chevelle bought new with a 300hp 327 and 4 speed manual came from the factory with a 12 bolt rear diff with an eaton posi. I have lots of 12 bolt shims left over from a gear change in my 69SS 396 Chevelle back in 1974. I bought a full set from chevrolet before the job.

IMPORTANT - Those mono leaf springs get brittle over time and now that you have LS power and the 10 bolt posi you're going to break those old springs guaranteed. If you have time install multi leaf springs to avoid disaster. Nice build - good luck!

I think you'll be more happy with a more refined driveability and streetable torsen differential. "A typical open has a 1.1 to 1 bias ratio due to some small internal friction. The non spinning wheel gets 1.1 times as much torque (10% more) than the spinning wheel. The Torsen differential for Camaro SS has a 2.2 to 1 bias ratio, therefore, the non spinning wheel gets 2.2 times as much torque as the spinning wheel. The Torsen will support up to a 2.2:1 torque imbalance before it differentiates (unlike the open), and then will differentiate at the 2.2:1 ratio. With the spool, there is actually a negative torque on the outside wheel in a turn making it difficult to turn in the intended path. This can also occur with spring preloaded limited slip differential under low torque. The Torsen applies a positive torque to both drive wheels in a turn. Another benefit of Torsen: in an aggressive turn, the inside rear wheel loses some traction and the Torsen then biases torque to the outside wheel which tends to pull the car through the turn (instead of sliding sideway). If the rear loses traction and the driver releases the throttle, Torsen biases the engine braking torque to the outside wheel which helps to lessen the severity of a spin-out."

I have seen the wheels pull out on a ford van on a busy 6 lane freeway in San Antonio, TX on a ford van. Whole wheel and axle came out at 70mph. Dude managed to stop it without incident and get pulled over. That wheel and axle bounced and wobbled around in heavy traffic from the right lane all the way to median and nobody tagged it! Craziest thing I've seen in a while!

Rear is gonna go boom. The 8.2’s don’t hold at all. If you wanted a cheap upgrade that would hold you should have picked up a used 8.5 out of a nova and sent it. I’d also be very careful with those old mono leafs. I’d be willing to bet if it’s not already cracked inside the front leaf pocket it will be after your first good burnout.
