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).
1984 Corvette Acceleration Run
Took the rarely driven 'Vette out for a spin! Great running '84! This car
is lots of fun to drive. It has nearly 300 lb-ft of torque at low rpm and
nearly 1g of grip, which equals lots of fun on a curvy road.

I have always wanted to do a 0-60mph. run. I set the car up with my old
Canon Elura on the roll bar. It worked in the garage, but died. So all the
incar prep work with the iPhone Stopwatch failed. It was fun anyway .. I
used the computer and the iPhone Stopwatch. The car shifts into 3d. gear at
62mph. Anyway, I was disappointed, I thought the car was much faster. Next time I won't focus on the
iPhone. But hook up the car'

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.
