Many Chevelle owners are not content to keep their cars strictly stock. In the time since these cars were built in the 1960s and 1970s, suspension, steering, brake, and engine technology have taken giant leaps forward. Many Chevelle owners want to enjoy all the benefits of modern technology as well as the pleasure of driving a classic muscle car. But for many owners, completing a coil-over shock install, bolting on aftermarket disc brakes, or installing sub-frame connectors is something they've never done before and seems daunting.

InChevelle Performance Projects, author Cole Quinnell provides comprehensive instruction on upgrades to every component group of the car including chassis, suspension, brakes, transmission, driveline, engine, interior, and electrics. Examples of component installs include HEI ignition, upgrading steering system, tubular A-arms, a 5-speed transmission swap, stiffer coil-over and leaf springs, and much more. Installing a modern GM LS engine is a popular project, and Quinnell covers this complex install from start to finish as well.

This book offers a full range of performance projects from mild to wild, so owners can perform minor to extensive modifications.
