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!
