INFORMATION FROM OWNER "KROM1376":
WHEELS: The IROC wheels were temporary. They happened to be the same size as the original wheels but now there are Grand Sport Wheels on it.
ENGINE: Small black 400 bored .030 to a 406. It's out of a 1972 3/4 ton Blazer. It's only a 2 bolt but I have never had any issue with any 2 bolt build as long as you are not building an all out race car.
HEADERS: The headers are a set of 202's. I'm not sure what they are off of, only that they are late 60's to early 70's 350 heads with 76 cc chambers. I had to have the steam holes drilled for the 400.
INTAKE: Stock intake was only temporary, using a modified stealth ram now.

Hot Rod Corvette Hack - The Long Version
This is the video version of the Corvette Hack story that appeared in the Nov. '10 issue of Hot Rod magazine. You'll see the Hot Rod staff shred an '85 Corvette, cutting off parts until it was nearly a bare frame. The point? To see how much the car's performance improved as it dropped weight (into the Dumpster).

Why Cut Up a C4 Corvette?
When the fourth generation Corvette was introduced in 1984, many innovative build techniques were implemented. Early Corvette amenities were becoming standard equipment while new options filled every available inch of dash space. The 1984-1989 C4 dash had more modules and controllers to integrate behind an already tight dash area. 1990-1996 Corvettes added more modules along with airbags to the already restricted dash space.
After years of working with C4′s, it was apparent that any one without good information would have a difficult time diagnosing electrical issues. Repairing would also be difficult because many internal dash components can not be seen. For example, anyone that has had the daunting task of replacing a heater core in a C4 knows how tough the dashboard is to work on.
C4 body and chassis construction was another area that was new to the automotive industry. Stranded fiberglass body panels were no longer used, as Sheet Molded Composite (SMC) panels were implemented. The SMC panels were similar in construction with the exception of two epoxy panels sandwiched as a mat material. In this application, the epoxy panels and mat are pressed under high pressure in a mold to form body panels. Chassis and body are then integrated as uni-body construction, requiring different repair techniques for both body and chassis. We often wondered if anyone at GM had to replace a taillight bulb or service an antenna.

Corvette 1986 C4 Frankenstein
This is my 1986 Corvette. My wife named him Frankenstein. Frankie for short. I restored this car from the ground up. It was a neglected C4 Corvette. I got the car with a new built up 350 engine. I restored the entire car myself. I painted it, reupholstered the seats, new black interior, weatherstripping, air conditioning system. I changed the 700R4 trans to a 4+3 Doug nash transmission. I also rebuilt the 4+3 overdrive myself. New tires, brakes, rack & pinion. Upgraded the alternator, new digital dash. I can go on and on, but lets just say. This car is like a brand new 1986 Corvette. It has it all. You wont find one swirl in my black paint. Its black glass. I have never done so much work on a car. I am keeping it for life.

1984 Chevrolet Corvette STK # 1010
Corvette's don't get much more 80's than this! Check out this time-capsule one owner 1984 Corvette that is loaded with options! Has the Z51 performance handling package with G92 performance gear ratio (only 410 units made). Also has the 4 + 3 manual transmission with overdrive. This car is in great condition and has all original body panels, paint, equipment, and is fully numbers-matching. Had brand new Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires less than 3,000 miles ago and also has received other maintenance items as needed (the owner is very meticulous!). Because this Corvette is a one-owner it comes with some neat "extras". Extras include a custom-fit 84 Corvette car cover, original buyer's order & window sticker, owner's manual, shop manual, 84 Corvette Dealer Brochures (2), 84 Corvette "Anatomy of the New Corvette" framed poster. He had the Blaupunkt cell phone installed back in '87 and never took it out! This Corvette is a non-smoker and has always been garaged. Never seen snow and it has seen very little rain.
