Greatest Camaro Ever Built? 8500rpm LS7 DSE-Z 3rd Gen

  • Published on Apr 17, 2019
  • Detroit Speed’s DSE-Z is one of those rare anomalies of a build - pretty much what we’d consider perfect. Built with unreal detail, BUT it’s built to shred too. And shred it does. Detroit Speed’s owner Kyle Tucker gave this very car a serious rip in our yard, as you’ll see in this video. Can we take this thing home already?

    Absolutely SICK! I have a 67’ Camaro convertible currently but I had, in my youth, an 85’ Z-28 that I dropped a GM Goodwrench 350/375 HP crate motor in with lots of suspension upgrades and it handled like it was on rails.....nothing like this though but I absolutely loved driving. Great job on a great car!!!!

    I had a 1986 or 87 dont recall exactly but it was a Z28 iroc Z. I don't agree with the best ever the 2012 stage 3 SS Ls3 Camaro is way better faster than the 396 ss chevelle 1969 model we had. 2012 ss is top dog in affordable sports cars OBVIOUS there are better like the Corvette.

    Oh my God!!! I know it's little and just aesthetic, but I'm in love with the green ring that lights up around the tachometer for a shift-light!!!! Every little detail of this car is on-FUCKING-point!!!!!

    Very nice and I had 295's on 17" Centerlines 20 years ago and it looked and worked great, so while 315's are big with mild modifications believable.

    What I love about the 3rd Generation Camaro is that it looks like it could be a supercar, but it doesn’t have a screeching V12, and sounds like a proper Muscle Car.

    I love when you guys give the older cars that were built with the blood sweat and tears of hard working americans!!! Vinny, Hert and the other guys that are always riding the Japanese nuts could learn a lot from this build!!! I have an appreciation for Japanese cars but TVclip has an over saturation of guys fan boying Japanese cars and know nothing american made!!! My dream was to build a 3rd gen drift build so you know who my pick is in build and battle!!!

    Ahhhhh the torque arms don’t break !!
    I built in early 2000 what became the fastest street legal drag car in the world on. a 315 drag radial and it was a 426 cubic inch twin turbo 87 RS Third Gen Camaro and we ran a modified torque arm and it was seeing 2300 hp through the rear end.Car ran 7:20 @190 plus MPH.
    The misinformation on these subjects is just for seeking parts to uninformed customers who know no better !!

    Damn that's gorgeous. I'll never forget the day I picked up my '89 Iroc Convertible, soon after I graduated high school. Greatest day of my life.

    You losing 70hp through the intake? What? Saldy flat plane cranks don't have a place in a car like that, flat plane cranks are for generally reserved for lightweight racing cars HP is kept high and torque low, all to reduce drivetrain mass in the quest for reducing overall car mass.
    Flat plane cranks have become a marketers dream, there disadvantages are not worth it IMO.
