Champion Cooling met Erich Heinig through his Vette Kart that he brought out to LS Fest. When he embarked on a new build, we were there to be a part of it – right from the start.
The stock brakes were just fine for a typical family sedan, but for a car that is driven hard and occasionally raced, we were on the search for better brakes. We found them in an odd place.
Going faster is one thing, but you still have to be able to slow down without overcooking your brakes. Master Power Brakes helped in that area.
We make another upgrade to the Camaro to replace some of the non-functioning gauges, and install the new RTX Series from Dakota Digital.
We can’t have a project car without having our complete system installed, so the Camaro got an upgrade and we cover the complete install step by step.
Sometimes having one of the more popular vehicles means you have too many choices when it comes to parts. Hedman Hedders helped narrow it down for us with SBC headers.
