I've decided to sell my 1991 Corvette M6. This is going to be a little long, but here's the scoop...
I had a 1992 Z28 autocross car and I decided I wanted a street car. I pulled the engine out of the Z28 (approximately 1,200 miles on it since it was built) and bought a Corvette. I put a set of Trick Flow 175 heads on it and a TPIS Miniram II as well as a TPIS throttle body and did a complete teardown and refresh before putting it in the Corvette (rod/main bearings, had the crank polished, new cam bearings, all gaskets and seals, new heads, new intake, new throttle body). I bought a Canton road race pan for it, stainless works long tube headers and a Dewitt radiator and started putting it together. The transmission was converted to crash through and a Hurst shifter was installed. I also ordered all the weather stripping for it and changed some (the rest is in a box) as I had time. It also has a new center console lid and new sun visors. The heads, intake, clutch, flywheel and distributor have about 40 miles on them, the throttle body and injectors are less than that and I installed the Borla kit last weekend....it's brand new). I've paid for two proms from two reputable places and I've been working on cleaning up the tune and some driveablility issues and I'm finally tired of spending my time and money tuning it and not driving it. So...I'm listing it for sale. I have a pile of money in this car, I'm asking far less than I have in it and I'm not looking to go much lower on it. I don't have to get rid of it, but I think I'm going to go C6 shopping and send this to a good home. I'm selling the car and the collection of parts I have for it as a lot.
It's red with black leather and has 117 k miles on the chassis and a 6 speed with 3.45 gears (dual power seats, electronic climate controls).
I'll save time and just start a parts list:

AC has been converted to R134 (but I was planning to change it back to R12).
I'm sure there's more and I'll go through the garage and update this. I'd rather find someone who wants to finish the tune and enjoy it instead of parting it out.
So, in a nutshell, if you like tuning these cars and want a car with a lot of nice stuff in it and a bonus shortblock as well as 3 sets of wheels....look me up.
Pics on request. And I own the F-body road race autocross forums (www.frrax.com), there is a thread on there about the Camaro (that I had this engine in) and a thread about building the Corvette with some pics where you can see what's where and what's in the car, etc.
helping a member out, he emailed me a bunch of pics of his 91 vette,
just uploading them for him. mainly learning for myself for the future. but enjoy the pics. not all of them, but a sampling of what he sent to me.
good luck! enjoy
I wanted to update this to say that it's no longer for sale, I have a complete FAST XFI 2.0 kit for it and I'm going to convert it over to a FAST system and go from there. That should fix the tuning issues. I'm going to rewire the engine and try to adapt the rest.
