My 1977 Corvette L-48, itd been sitting for 10 years when i found it. after alot of thought, we decided GM (Government Motors lol) had a decent idea, but didnt build these right.

We added a full road course suspendion with fiberglass springs front and rear, KYB road race shocks, neopreme bushings all the way thru the suspension, and ALOT of engine and trans upgrades (cuz hey, 180 hp stock was nothing but funny right??)

the motors a Dart tall deck block, 4.25 bore, with a crower crank and rods, 4.25 stroke, making a small block 454, dart 230cc raised port heads, pro comp intake, lunati cam, roller rockers, 4130 7/16" pushrods, and a 110 gal per hour pump. the side pipes are on, just not in this video, i went with patriot 3" full length chrome pipes with slotted heat sheilds, its very loud, and very deep lol (sets off car alarms across the street from the shop lmao)

the trans is a 400 turbo from TCI with a cheatah valve body, TCI blue band clutch kit, and a boss hawg 2800 stall converter.

the rear end is a stock center section with 4.11 gears and a detroit locker. the outer drive spindles are weak (rated a 347 ft lbs stock) so we upgraded them with units from ikerds, since he has a customer running these hardened units on the drag strip and doin 9s, they should work for us.

the spoke wheels look nice (especially when the car gets painted), but this set up will pretty much destroy spokes, so i have a set of drag lites to put on for racing, and the spokes will fill out the vintage corvette look on the street

it hasnt been road tested yet, and hasnt been down the track, MORE VIDS TO COME
