Hey guys, just thought I'd give everyone a long term update on what's happening with the Corvette.

I was able to do a little work on the tune over the winter and got the idle improved a bit. In fact it is running well enough that I drove the car as my daily driver from march until now while I waited for some parts for my cadillac.

I could proabbly tinker with the tune forever to get it perfect but it runs pretty good as is for now.




The plan is to enjoy the car and put some miles on it this summer, then I'm going to change things up again this fall... I've currently got these sitting on my workshop:


Stay tuned for another build thread sometime this winter or next year.

Sweet looks like a killer combo set-up. You going to stroke the LS2? Boost?

There are so many possibilities and so much potential with the LS platform its hard to decide.

However, my LS2 is super low miles (18,000km) and really clean so, my current thinking is to help keep the cost reasonable, just do a few mild upgrades to get it in the 450 chp range and get the car all sorted out then build it up at some future point if I need more hp. But to be honest nothing is written in stone at this point and I may still change my mind.

Thanks VT.

Hmmm that is a little up in the air. The 355ci L98 engine only has about 5,000km on it. My plan at the moment is to covert the L98 to a carb and put it in a 1983 trans am project I've been meaning to get started on which should be fun since its a great engine.

As far as the super ram itself goes, I'm not sure... I do really like looking at it so I Might just hang it up in my shop and smile at it (which seems like a bit of a waste) or I guess I might sell it (after the LS swap is done).

I think you probably could get to around 420-450 rwhp with the right engine mods (cam and cnc'd heads) and be very streetable. Running the T-56 and your 3.07 gears would be one fun car. Its probably going to surprise you how much more power you can drive daily. My LQ9 700r trans and 2.73 in my car I grab 4-8 feet of rubber of the lights when I floor it now. You set-up would be like crazy fast. Will be one heck of a build. Boost would add that damn scary fast fun factor to the car, if you needed to be scared every time you drive.

Thanks Mike I'm really looking forward to the swap, i love seeing LS swapped C4's like yours.

I'm actually only looking to make 450 flywheel hp, so 390-400rwhp. I already have a tony mamo ported Fast 90 intake, the plan right now is to add headers and a mild cam, nothing to crazy. As far as the rear goes I'm definietly going to do 3.73 or 4.10 rear gears. Should give it lots of low end grunt and make stop and go driving easier with a low first gear. Going to get the T56 built to take 600hp also.
