@Mongo - Spend the money on a 6l80e powertrain over the 4l60e. It's a much better driving trans that's several decades newer in design. Plus, the spark cut during the clutch to clutch shift...

Listen to these guys as they aren't steering you wrong. Those cars you are looking at need tons of money thrown at them. Spending $5000 on something that runs and looks decent will pay dividends...

It would be very difficult to get the factory traction control active. We do the stability control on the GM cars (and all the super cars). You would have to make it think it's still a Corvette. ...

Drive the car really hard on the way to smog station. Hope for a short line. Key off when you get there. Push the car through line. Hope for the best.

Another option for insurance is State Farm. I have an agreed value policy on my 84 for $12,000. I'd guess that's about what it's worth. It's $150/6 months on the road and $70/6 months of storage. ...

Eventually you might want to think about doubling up on the thickness of the plenum. I don't think that would survive an intake backfire and will also flex a lot with load. Very cool project though....

Since we had kids I don't work on any of our cars unless something is in danger of falling off. Prior to children Michelle was happy to catch up on her couple of TV shows or do Sudoku.

What diameter is the rotor? 330mm will barely clear a few 16" wheels. Generally 323 is safe with a 16". 345mm barely fits under 17" wheels.

I'd guess you need 17" wheels.

I would think pretty strongly about doing a C5/C6 trans swap. Up front cost will be more, but should be stronger and a lot more replacement parts are easily sourced.

For anyone on the fence, buy the parts. They make a huge improvement to US engines.

I'd definitely believe 310hp. No, the Euro motors don't make any more torque compared to the US engines. When I put the Euro parts on top of my US 4.7L I dynoed that car again on the same dynapac. ...

Having been inside a 928 engine and a Buick (Rover) V8 I can tell you they share nothing except for both being made out of aluminum.

It does that so when you are at WOT it's retarding timing. My car sounds pretty similar to yours. I have a 84 US 4.7 with Euro heads/cams and a US distributor. I think my timing is set at 33*...

Go for it. Learn as much as you can before you buy a car. It will help you find the right one and possibly save you thousands of dollars by not buying the wrong one.

I guess what I wrote could be confusing. What I meant was I'll sell the engine and exhaust for $3000. Not the car with the engine.
