Porsche has got along just fine selling 300 - 400 hp cars for decades and no matter how much power Chevy injects into each new Vette, it always seems like a 50/50 mix of which car ends up being the...

Hope it works out! I know you've been looking at LT4s but if this car checks out and his "whine" ends up just being a belt driven accessory going south or some other component outside the engine...

Finally clawed my way into the group

Hey guys, I picked up a white 1991 ZR from across state lines a few hours away from me. I've been stalking this one for about two years as it changed hands a few times in for sale ads outside of...

I always wondered why some engines had that dark satin nickel finish vs the brighter aluminum finish. I figured it had to do with the environment underhood over the years and the quality of the...

I believe the bolts holding the door hinges holding the doors on are 10mm and there are six in all. The lower fender panel will have to come off to get to the lower hinge bolts. Try to get a pencil...

I don't know...I think I'd take the old farts calm demeanor over 717's melodramatics. I'm sure if 717 doesn't have a click bait video already, there will definitely be a, "BROKE MY ZR1!!!" with him...

I think the majority knew this wasn't a Cadillac car. More than likely, those still yelling "Cadillac!" were hoping against hope this style of Corvette was not going to happen. Change isn't always...

The iron blocks are just a nice entry level LSx engine formula to make some great numbers for a street car. There was a C5 Z06 owner who plucked out his all aluminum LS for a 5.3 junkyard motor and...

Luckily there are plenty more. More than likely, that was a problem C4 with a textbook case of never ending problems and the owner said “blow it up”. Or a flood car, you never know.

Never had problems with Zip. Of the “big three” parts suppliers: Ecklers, Corvette Central, or Zip, I’ve never had problems. Always best not to piss of your bread and butter.

1993 ZR-1 : 111 mph
1992 LT1:102 mph
1996 LT4:105 mph
LS1 C5:109 mph
LS1 Camaro SS: 107 mph

Some sweet setups. I like C409's because it fits under a stock C4 hood. I'm sure that's easy for a big cube stroker sbc setup though.

Refined, finished, unveiled car used as stance against in-development mule, with test gear, excessive camo, and extra padding all over to hide details.... Solid argument!

You can get to your goals with a gen 1 stroker. The parts don't have to be exotic, either. A 383 with lower shelf products can actually come in under the cost (and headache) of swapping an LS motor...

I agree with Greg on your options for a 3'' exhaust. You may need to start getting friendly with your local muffler shops. I "stick built" mine versus buying a multi thousand dollar set. I found a...
