I'm currently working a deal to swap the motor for an LT1 blower setup, either a procharger remote or something that will require a new hood and a trailer. It's time to do something interesting to the Corvette.
Well, I guess that will eliminate the possibility of passing an emission test! :lol:

Heh - unfortunately, I'm being stupidly sentimental about the LT-1 in the 'Vette. I want to keep the numbers-matching block since that was Mom's car - that's the reason it doesn't have a certain 4-bolt-main-pre-smog-race-motor-with-a-lumpy-cam in it right now... :D

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Just cause you take the motor out doesn't mean you have to get rid of it you know? It can occupy the space currently utilized by the built motor...

To a woman who wanted a 911 and likes changing her own oil (not a euphemism you asshats!), yes.

Oh yeah. She uses her cleavage to hold her phone while driving said 911. I forgot that part. Sorry.

My wife likes the idea of a garage that DOESN'T have a engine on an engine stand in it. And since she pretty much tolerates massive amounts of my lunacy on an ongoing basis, who am I to refuse this one request?
