THATGUY


“ThatGuy” usually in the car world is never a good term, but in Abilene the name “ThatGuy” is only directed towards one person…Justin Hill. Knowing as “ThatGuy” and owning “ThatCar”. In November 2005 Justin picked up the still in stock form 2000 Camaro Z28. After rocking the all know “Stock” status this for some time the Z28 was ready to see some mods. Brian and Janice would soon get their hands on and install the baby cam of the past. Now added cam/headers/exhaust/lid “ThatCar” hit the dyno. 309whp/333wtq at half throttle was the final numbers. Being told, “That’s what a LS1 with this set-up should put down”, he took the car home and enjoyed it, knowing the numbers he was told was not correct.
Like any guy car “MORE POWER” is what Justin and his Z28 needed. After hydro locking the stock engine in the spring of 2009, a trip to Simple Quick Racing was in store. A 402ci LS2 would be the new heartbeat to “ThatCar”. To help the new heart transplant came a good support list: ETP 245cc heads, Diamond flat top pistons w/valve relief, Scat rods, Eagle crank, ported LS6 oil pump, Molling double roller timing chain, Meziere electric H2O pump, SLP under drive pulley, FTP 114mm clear lid, 95mm Black Widow throttle body, 95mm Wilson elbow, ported Victor Jr. intake, and stock alternator. To pump blood through this new heart a Walbro 255 pump, Edlebrock fuel rails and Siemens 60lbs injectors were called to do the duty. A Kooks 2” primary longtubes, Kooks 3 ½” y-pipe, Mullex Cat-back, and Spintech Muffler are what gives this monster is sound.


Now with the all engine side of the build taken care of it was time to worry about getting all that power to the ground. TH400 was installed to be the main handler of this task. TCI perssure plate, fan cooled tranny cooler, Neil Chance Nitrous Converter, B&M Ratchet shifter, and a trans brake all help beef up the transmission. Then came a Moser 9” rear end, 31 spline axles, 3:73 gears, custom driveshaft, and half inch studs.


Now to help put the power to the American Racing Rebel(18x9.5/front & 18x10.5/Rear) rims wrapped in KDW2 Drag Radials(285x35/front & 315x30/rear) comes a good suspenison. Spohn upper A-arms/lower a-arms/front sway-bars/pan hand bar, Mac sub frame connecters, Wolfe extreme rear sway-bars, Spohn lower control arms/tubular k-momper/chassis mount torque arm w/drive safety loop, Ebiach springs, Bilstein shocks, and Ground Control coilovers. A 6-point chromeoly cage brings stability and safety to the car. Rotorworks drilled and slotted rotors stop the Z28 quicker then stock parts. SLP line-lock is used for when “ThatCar” sees some track time in the future.
If the Camaro happens to find a opponent fast enough a nice nitrous set-up is on hand. Speedteck supplied a 100-500 plate kit and Dyno Tune a purge kit will handle the muscle end of things. While a NX window switch, Harris Speed Works witch panel, and a custom standalone are the brains to the madness.
With all major parts of the project complete, the attention to the exterior was next on the list. A Harwood 2.5” cowl hood, Ebay halo headlights w/Red L.E.D’s, SLP Bowtie grill, and GTS Blackout turn signals give the front end a aggressive yet functional look. A SS Spoiler, GTS Blackout Taillights, L.E.D 3rd brake light, Stainless C-A-M-A-R-O fill in letters, removed molding, debadged, cut antenna, and 35% tint give the rest of the car is nice clean custom look. The black theme continues to the interior of the Z28. Trans-am leather front and rear seats were installed. Trans-am door panels and black headliner/sun visor/carpet/seatbelts all go nicely with the black finished cage.

Finally, with the build complete and the delivery of “ThatCar” back to Justin in late 2010. The future plans are to get a new fresh coat of black paint and new tint. Along with Corbeau seats and Dynomat will be added to the interior. All this takes this estimated 500hp all motor “ThatCar” into its new “ThatGuy” status.
