1976 Corvette Vettepack side pipe inserts - Thumpr cam
Classic Chambered Exhaust made a set
of vettepack inserts for me based on the ones they make for the C2
corvettes. Sound is incredible. A little quieter than the Hooker Max Flow
inserts but far better tone. Highway driving at 70 is a nice purr not
obnoxious at all.

1976 Corvette Stingray Comp Cams Thumpr - Spintech mufflers - Edelbrock E-Street heads
Here is part 3 of the restoration and now modification of the engine on my
Corvette Project. A walkaround with idle rpm at 1000 in park and around
600-650 in gear. Vacuum is 7 hg and the base timing is 25 degrees with the
vacuum advance capped off and mechanical running around 20 degrees for a
total of 44.5 on my timing light.
At 2:45 sec in the video I was trying to show the vacuum canister mounted
on the frame under the brake Booster. If you end up getting a thumpr cam
and have power brakes make sure you get a canister, with the can the brakes
work the same as with the stock 17 hg of vacuum I used to have.
The new additions are:
Edelbrock E-TEC 64cc aluminum heads (#5089)
Comp Cams - Thumpr cam and lifters (#12-600-4CL)
Comp Cams High energy pushrods
Roller Tip rockers (Summit racing)
Double roller timing Chain
Milodon high volume water pump
Milodon high volume thermostat (160 degree)
Prostreet Harmonic Balancer
Edelbrock high volume fuel pump
Maradyne Electric fan and thermostat control.
Mufflers are Spintech Sportsman Street
Comp Cam Vacuum Canister (#5200)

The rear gear is 3:08
It can really use a 2400-2600 stall converter and 3:55 to 3:70 gears.
All in all it's a good sounding cruiser with nice highway acceleration
though light hopping I haven't had a chance to try but without a convertor
there isn't much of a holeshot.
Thanks for watching and if you see anything else that I have listed feel
free to ask.
Totally Custom 1970 Corvette Stingray C3 WideBody
This is a totally custom Corvette Stingray. If you love the C3 generation
Corvette, this is the car for you! It is a widebody, it is drifting on the
track, it does burnouts, and it is fast! This is the coolest Vette ever!
This Corvette is a built car, as you can tell from the sound!
It is cammed and custom, and almost wrecks on the track several times. This
hot Corvette is the one most guys dream of owning.
First trip down the 1/4 in my custom '72 Corvette
This is my first time racing a stick shift, so still working on my launch.
The car is my '72 Corvette with a Magnuson supercharged LS6. I had four
runs that night with a best of 12.07 at 118 and a worst of 12.94. Getting
off the line was difficult with street tires, and I spun badly on two of
the runs (no video of my worst run). Can't wait to get some videos on a
road course! That's my nephew at the end.
