F the starter is not working immediately then 5 minutes is too long.Instant chargers are designed to supply the battery with 12 volts to get current flowing through the system. If the battery is faulty then nothing will happen neither will the instant charger start the car.

SOURCE: What stock transmission and rear end are on the 95

What you are thinking about doing is all "custom mods"...Nothing is impossible but what you are asking will take a huge pile of money and a lot of expertise. Corvette differentials are completely different and require extensive modifications to install, with very little benefit other than being "different" and a good conversation piece. Likely you would be better served by installing a diff made by Strange Engineering which would be far stronger. In a Camaro, you would also benefit more by using a good 350 engine (performance crate version) with a 700r4 transmission behind it (more reliable and less aggravation) The biggest problem would be getting a wiring harness and ignition system to operate the whole thing, but being a Chevy, there are a great number of suppliers of aftermarket harnesses to work with. That said, it will still take a heap of $ and experience to get it all together!!!
Good luck though!!!

SOURCE: Where is the battery located under the hood?

The terminals are on the battery, and the battery is located underneath the back seat.

The manual for my '07 M6 says to charge the battery using the posts under the hood. I have located the "+" post but it doesn't look like what I am use to seeing. Where should I connect the...

On the newer model cars they have started putting the battery under a myriad of plastic covers to make the engine compartment look cleaner. The "+" post that you have found is directly connect to the positive terminal on the battery. Put the positive cable on that post and then the negative on a bare bolt that is connected to the frame of the car, I would use the one on the sway bar if possible.

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?

Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

Turn ignition key and just get click from soliniod under front hood one white wire and one black wire and dash lights go out,new batt and starter fitted

here are a couple of quick easy thing to do to isolate what the problem is. if your battery is new and fully charged. then take a set of jumper cables and put one clamp on the negitive post of the battery and its corresponding clamp on the alternator bracket on the motor this will insure that you have a complete ground which you need to ingauge the starter. in dc current the amperage is constant and the voltage is variable. a good ground is needed.
if the charge in your battery is depleted jump the car to get it started. then remove the positive cable from the batteries possitive post if the car stays running then the altinator is charging this illiminates the alternator from being the problem. if the car stays running its good if the car dies then the altinator is bad and needs replaced.
check the wires hooked to the starter to make sure that they are not gounding out on the block or the exaust.

Where do you hook a battery charger

Under the backseat to hook directly to the battery. or under the hood hot to the fuse box should be a red cover with a + on it, ground to the exhaust.

On the big fuse / relay box there should be a red plastic surronded terminal, may have a cap. This would be the positive terminal and the ground can be any metal on the engine, not the pulleys!

Under the hood should be a Jump start /charging post that is connected to the battery. Look on the pass side for rubber caps that cover a brass post. Hook up your charger here, Red is positive, Black is the ground side or just hook the ground to any solid metal part of the engine.

Car won't start, how do i charge the battery? for a 2006 chevy cobalt

I would recommend hooking the charger up right to the battery which is located in the trunk under the carpet.
You can hook up the charger under the hood to the remote jumper postivie post and to any ground. If I remember correctly there is a strut bolt right next to the remote positive post.
Either way will work but I'd go with the first one.

Where is negative connection for battery on 2006 dodge charger srt8

Also, to add to some mild confusion, the terminals under the hood on the charger are just there for a jump, thus there is only a positive terminal. The battery is actually stored in the trunk next to the spare.
