The new bodywork could accommodate some fierce wheels and tires. Abate decided on the iForged Avus in a 22x9.5-inch front and a healthy 22x12.5-inch in the rear. The Pirelli P Zero front tires measure 285/30R22 and the rear Pirellis are a supercar-esque 335/25R22. The correct stance was achieved using a Pedders full coilover system.The brakes are from elite UK manufacturer, AP Racing who supplied the project with a 6-piston/16-inch front and a 4-piston/15-inch for extreme stopping power.

The interior took many late nights to complete but the results speak for themselves. The team at SCAP installed a custom black suede and red stitch ensemble virtually everywhere including the Yonaka seats. The steering wheel was replaced with a Sparco carbon fiber unit and a quick release to match the Sparco shift knob sitting atop a Hurst Short Shifter.

From there the team did what they do best, audio and multimedia. At the heart of the innovative Azentek headunit pumping signals through Stinger interconnects. The mids and highs are pumped through Massive Audio NX4 into Massive Audio CK6 III speakers. The lows are powered by twin Massive Audio N3s driving their own Massive Audio DC10. The system is lit up by a trunk mounted Stinger battery, power wire and fuse block.

Abate brought his SCAP Camaro to SEMA with a load of competition and held his ground. It didn’t win any awards, but definitely won the respect of Camaro fans and the satisfaction that his V6 twin turbo is the only one of its kind
