Another One Bites The Dust: The Auction Corvette’s Second Mill Simply Stops Playing!


Another One Bites The Dust: The Auction Corvette’s Second Mill Simply Stops Playing!

The Auction Corvette that Cleetus has been messing with this year has been a fun watch for us…he has been trying to keep this C6 together ever since he first saw it in person. How has that gone? Well….not well. The entire running gear has, at some point or another, proven to be problematic. The transmission gave up the ghost, so a Powerglide build that was radical overkill was installed. The first iron-block truck engine died a noble death, so they pirated a different block from a junkyard SUV and apparently, feeding a truck mill a steady diet of nothing but boost doesn’t work out well in the end for a truck block, because ol’ Ruby isn’t feeling well. With barely any oil pressure on the gauge, it’s decided that a Viking funeral for engine number two is the only way to go. One rip down the strip, come whatever may. But, a question: will the poor Corvette make it even that far? A grand total of three PSI of oil pressure is a bad, bad sign…this is a late-model GM engine, not a Chrysler Slant Six. This engine is picky!

    I know some people don’t agree with the Cleetus antics….BUT, if I was in my late 20’s & had all of that at my disposal…? I’d be doing the exact same things!!!

    Seems like they are doing a great job at dispelling the myth of “just grab a junkyard LS, slap on a turbo and make 1000hp all day long”
    The “all day long” part seems to be pretty tricky!

    So, the question of the hour is : Who’s footing the bill for all the big buck fixes for their bone yard red neck engineering ? Who’s the sugar daddy and where can I get a piece of the action ? My ’95 T-Bird could use a few more ponies ….
