to be honest, with the computer issues, you would be better off building an L98 for the car...

the LT1 has all sorts of wacky computer controls for the fuel injection - optispark not withstanding...

The L98 is more than capable of performing to the level you wish...

Infact, I would simply rebuild, with performance adders, to the L83 that already exists in the "83".

First you have to disable the Corvette Museum security guards to get to the 1983. I don't know why you'd want to pull off such an expensive prank, though.

Must be one of those '83 owners on the "what year is your C4" poll.

Wish I had an 83, they rocked, especially the 83 LT4 ZR1 LS6 roadster A4 with the 4+3 gear splitter.

You forgot the MN6 and L88... just to be accurate.

You are correct of course, but I was speaking of the early 83's, not the late 83's that offered the MN6 L88; however that required the HUD VATS CAGS and runflats with DIC and the insueing oil consumption problems, so I always coveted the early model.

Thank you! Man, you type a 3 and not a 4 and people just go on and on.
So does anyone know how to do this and what the cost would be?

You could do a 383 in your 84, it's gonna be expensive anyway you look at it. Jim's Performance made a conversion wiring harness for me so I could use a 7730 ECM and a DFI (only one plugged at a time). He may be able to help you with a special harness and other stock TPI items. Good Luck, it's a long road my friend.

There is a guy on this forum who did an LT1 in a 76. Very sweet install. I think as long as you get the LT1 with the computer and harness it would be a pretty staight forward operation.

For a minute there I thought the museum had gotten low on funds and decided to auction of this one of a kind. Thank goodness it is still in its stock form in Bowling Green!

It has been done. Used to be a link off the Corvette Idaho page I think. I looked for it, but could not find it. I think I printed it and saved a copy. I will look for it. Can't find copy on my hard drive, will look for printed copy
