About

This is one of my dream cars. I really wanted a C3 style vette until I drove one. I liked the C4 a lot better. I have owned this vette since 1991.Originally it was a plain jane, white corvette with a weak 350 cross fire injection engine.

Specs

I would say the engine makes around 400/400. The last time I had it on the chassis dyno the engine was running out of juice at 4K based on the TPI set up. I have to put it back on the dyno now that I swapped to a TPIS mini ram and changed my cam to something a little more aggressive.

Mods

I pulled the factory 350 and put it in another car. I installed a 406 small block built for the street. Forged flat top pistons, aluminum trick flow heads, 36 lb injectors, hooker 3/4 headers, TPIS mini ram, Haltech fully programmable computer, beefed up t56 transmission, Dana 44 rear with 4:11 gears. I just swapped in a Doug Herbert roller cam and haven't fired up the engine yet. Still have a little more work to do to get it back on the road.
