Mounted behind the LS7 is Jake’s favorite modification in the entire build – the Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed transmission. Designed to handle 700 lb-ft of torque, Tremec’s Magnum 6-speed transmission features a double overdrive function in a reasonably lightweight package.
The transmission’s short, crisp, and precise shifts make it a very popular choice with Pro-Touring and road racing enthusiasts. An aluminum driveshaft transmits the power back to a Speedway Engineering full floater Ford 9-inch rearend.
The Rozelle team added Kook’s headers and a Magnaflow 3-inch exhaust system to boost the performance. The bone stock LS7 and the drivetrain combination measured 505 hp on a chassis dyno.
This retro beast with a modern twist Camaro is rolling on a set of 18-inch Forgeline GA3R wheels. These are three-piece competition wheels that are designed with strength and light weight in mine.
Forged 6061-T6 aluminum centers with heat-treated rim shells, these wheels have a 2100 pound street tire load rating. Like most of the wheels in the Forgeline arsenal, these wheels have a generous brake clearance and customizable fitment and finish options.
Team Rozelle uses Falken Azenis RT615K tires for street and track use. Known for their strong grip in dry conditions, they are rated 200 A-A by the Uniform Tire Quality Grade Standards (UTQG). This means that these tires have one of the highest traction ratings and fall in the highest grade in temperature rating.
A Detroit Speed dash insert highlights the interior and allowed the Rozelle’s to select any set of gauges, up to 5-inch, for their cockpit. It also gave the crew the option of determining their own personal layout for the gauge positions. AutoMeter Ultra Lite II gauges were selected to display the critical information for the driver.
Ultra-Lite II gauges have a silver face and black accents during the day, with an LED pointer and through-the-dial lighting, which give them a classic look that adds to the vintage nature of the Camera.
At night these gauges show their unique reverse lighting effect that alters the face of the gauge to dark with illuminated accents. These gauges work well for the daytime auto crossing events and have the added benefit of being easy to read at night on the way back home.
Rozelle added Recaro seats for the driver and passenger’s comfort. In the back, a classic houndstooth rear seat was added for that sporty vintage appearance.
The entire interior of the car is surrounded by a custom cage fabricated by JCG Restorations and Customs. The cage was built with full knowledge that this car would be competing in auto-cross events around the nation.
The added support and safety features without interference make this custom roll cage a “must-have” item for the ultimate street car.
