    Plastic Fantastic tew

    I know you hate Corvettes, get over it or don't.... I hinted this was coming, I bought it today

    ut oh, there's an anti-theft device there


    My friend has a scoop... mine is bigger (where the 'ew' came from)


    the motor and trans don't come with it, but it comes with its stock motor (a 350) and trans (a ST-10). This motor sounds good, very, very good. It's a 400 with the larger B&M blower (177 iirc)....




    I paid less for this then for PF 1

    Like a glove


    with the fan

    and worked on the throttle cable

    some disassembly


    headed to the Reno Air Races - so no updates for a bit...

    I made an executive decision.... not using this one


    mostly because if you look in the hole, you'll see the cooler tube takes 2/3rds of the tank.... so I got to looking for options and it appears a C5/C6 Z06 (7.0 liter) radiator is just what the doctor ordered.... so I ordered it anyway and didn't tell them I wasn't a doctor.....

    I'm looking forward to how that empty box performs

    empty box is good

    yeah not so much.... the list was right, just didn't have enough sub-parts

    the biggest one....

    That's quite an issue.... I'm sure you can resolve it!

    didn't get a lot done on this today - but got started with a cooling mod



    see the problem?


    I need to close this gap up a bit, but ultimately I'll simply move the intake up and put a shade on the top so it draws first from the bottom...

    it does look good

    shuffled cars, figured I'd snap a shot of it outside


    my goal this weekend is do burnouts with it.... lots on the list, but it's doable....

    Very nice!
    definition of corvette. n. 1. A fast, lightly armed warship, .
    MY idea of a Fat Bottomed Girl Making the Rockin' World Go Round:
    Top:Corvette
    Bottom:Battleship Iowa

    These ears - are the problem. I think they're a GM demanded anti-squeal or anti-chatter device. All replacements I've seen do not have them on it


    chop em off

    and voila 18s fit

    fat bottom vettes make the rocking world go round


    and it clears.. no need to move the flares
