firing up editor’s letter

It’s days like these that make you wonder what life’s gonna throw your way next, and 2020 was solid proof. This past year I’ve been hit by more surprises than any other time in my life—no doubt most of you are going through similar issues. COVID-19? Didn’t have that one on my Bingo card. Nor did I have jumping back into the seat as a magazine editor—this time taking on this here brand-new Chevy-based magazine—totally unexpected but absolutely welcomed. If you’ve been around the Chevy muscle car hobby and are past readers of Camaro Performers or Chevy High Performance magazines, you’ll most likely recognize my name as being associated with those titles. If you are new to the Chevy magazine world, here’s a quick backstory and some insight on how I…

1967 chevy nova

It was in 1967 when the Beatles released one of rock’s highest acclaimed albums “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” Ralph Nader’s book Unsafe at Any Speed set in motion the U.S.government to implement mandated safety standards for new automobiles, and Karl Jones’ fresh little Nova came off the assembly line. Back then, the Chevy II Nova was considered a budget-priced compact car. While the “big dog” SS Nova came with plenty of visual attitude backed up by a 275hp 327ci engine, it was considered a street beast for the time. No telling if Karl’s Nova began life with a 194ci, 250ci inline-six, or the 283ci V-8, but today it sports a supercharged LSA underhood cranking out over 700 hp. Nader would have totally lost it if he had any idea…

installing fitech’s new ultra ram efi system

In our modern times, upgrading a classic car with electronic fuel injection has become standard in the hot rodding world. There are a number of different throttle body EFI systems available designed to bolt in place of your carburetor, and while these systems are certainly worthwhile investments that do deliver driveability benefits, your engine still looks like an old carbureted engine. FiTech Fuel Injection is one company that has made it easy and affordable to make the EFI swap and offers quite a few different throttle body systems. One newer system that caught our attention is their Ultra Ram EFI, which is a complete port fuel injection system with a slick sheetmetal intake system as a foundation. The Ultra Ram places the throttle body vertically at the front of the engine, similar…

detroit speed–inspired third-gen f-body

Let’s jump back to the ’80s for a second. Some might remember the hairspray crisis, or TV shows like Knight Rider, but everyone should remember their first third-gen Camaro experience. For a while, third-gens seemed to be synonymous with throwback Halloween costumes (think Joe Dirt), but times are changing; F-bodies have solid bones. They are quick, fun to drive, and with the right upgrades, they can cut cones like a Corvette. The built or bought thread is a common one. Mainly because it answers the why. Some might prefer the latter, but like a child, your own creation has more of a permanent feeling, doesn’t it? As car builders, we evolve in our experiences—call them growing pains. Jay Hahn is proud to say that he built his Camaro. He’s been a…
