1980 was good news for the Camaro. The Z28 was at 190HP, a jump of
25hp from 1979. Part of the horsepower increase came from the new
Cowl Induction hood, returning to the Camaro the first time since
1969. This time, the hood door was operated by an electric solenoid.
Also, the front fender louvers were revised from the 1978-79 version,
and they, too, were now functional to let heat out of the engine
compartment. New bold 3 color graphics announced the changes. The
Z28 was lowered for better handling. While the 1970 Z28 was the 
performance leader of the second generation, the 1980 Z28 was the
handling leader.

California emission Z28s were only available in 305-165hp automatic 
configurations.  All 1980 Camaros sold in California had the Computer 
Controlled Catalytic Converter System (C-4).  This is a electronically 
controlled exhaust emissions system whose purpose is to maintain the 
ideal air/fuel ratio where the catalytic converter is most effective.  
It also triggers the check engine light when the oxygen sensor needs 
to be changed.  These cars got Rochester Dualjet E2ME and E4ME 
carburetors.  

The same basic 350 cam was used 1957-1980.  This is the same cam as 
used in the 300hp 327 and 350.  It has the following specs:
