About “Matt's AirocZ”

My project for 3yrs. Started as 305 TPI, 700r4 car. I stripped it completely down, cleaned n painted everything. I put in an 8pt cage, subframes, shaved the firewall on the heater box side, and tried to get rid of as much under hood garbage as possible!
Suspension is air ride tech bags, and some stuff my minitruckin buddy had layin around. 3/8" SMC valvess, viar 450 compressor, 5gallon tank. Shocks are Tokico 5-ways in front, and rear KYB for now. Stock iroc sway bars, powdercoated. All polyurethane bushings. Hotchkis trailing arms and panhard. Rear axle is from an 98' LS1 Z, 4.11 gears, stud girdle cover. Rear brakes are 98's with drilled rotors. Front brakes are 6piston Wilwoods for an LS1 car modified brackets n spindles to make some contraption that works! All flex lines are braided ss.
I built the 388ci stroker(4.06 x 3.75) motor. Eagle forged crank and 5.7 H beams, clevite bearings, forged pistons, gapless top rings. Canton kickout "road race" pan. AFR 195 heads w/ kick butt springs(200# seat/ 498# @ full lift), Custom grind solid roller cam. Tpis miniram, 30lb injectors, run off a 730ECM.
T56 "bulletproof" 6spd, hurst shifter, fidanza aluminum flywheel, spec stage 3 clutch. Edelbrock torque arm.
Exhaust im still tryin to figure out. Ive been rollin straight hookers to turn downs. Theres a bit of a ground clearance issue so the exhaust was a month long fab project this summer. Even through the baffles its way loud. haha. Open the cutouts and it sounds like the end of the world. The local authorities frown upon it right now.
Interiors not really extensive. Dont have any pics cause ive just been finishin it. Changed it from grey to black, red "type R" seats, haha. Racing belts. Still figurin some arm rest/door pullers that clear the cage door bars. Made some polished aluminum plates for a manual shift plate, and one to replace the ash tray with switches. Alpine cd player, stock speakers, ha(cant hear it anyways).
The bodys not too extensive. I did a lot of the prep work before takin it to paint. 2 base coats, 3 clear, still need to wet sand, but it looks pretty nice still. No side moldings. Newer Z front and side skirts. Shaved antenna. I layed a couple red pinstripes along the grey in the hood for some contrast. Had to take a little outta the rear flares to clear the 295's. Headlights are H4 conversion with HID 6000Ks for the lows.
