  1. Hotrodding Basics
    Hi, I'm new here but I was just wondering what the difference of power loss of a corvette over any other car? I know you kinda lose 10% to 15% of your Hp as it travels to the rear end but with Corvette, I wouldn't think would lose that much Hp since the transmission and rear-end are one unit so...
  2. Hotrodding Basics
    Evening guys, greenhorn here. I have a project 1969 corvette with a small block 350 in it. Engine was in the car when I bought it. This detail will become relevant later. I'm running 461 heads, 2.02/ 1.60 valves. The ports in the heads appear to be unmodified but slag free, but I'll admit it...
  3. Hotrodding Basics
    I am new to the forum. Just starting my first street rod. I am disassebling a 1996 Corvette and intend to use the engine, trans and suspension in my 1948 Chevy truck. What relays, modules, etc do I need to save from the Corvette? I know to save the ECU and the engine wiring harness.
  4. Hotrodding Basics
    Hey guys, new hotrodder here. I bought my first classic car, a 69 corvette. Total project car. Has a 350 in it, don't know much about how it's built internally but it's a 010 block that's pushin about 140-150 psi compression w/ 461 heads. Somewhat of a ways down the road but I'd like to put...
  5. Suspension - Brakes - Steering
    Was at a Goodguys car show one day and took a picture of this guy's setup. Dude was really friendly, and held first place at the autocross for a while. The other day I ran across it again and was wondering a) What kind of suspension setup is this called, and b) Where one can obtain one. This is...
  6. Hotrodding Basics
    I was wondering if anyone has heard of this being done before or not? If I had to pick a company to be loyal to it would definitely be GM but I like stuff from just about every corner of the industry and that includes the Tuner cars. I think it would be interesting to put an old Corvette Inline...
  7. Suspension - Brakes - Steering
    Does anybody still make a kit to install the 'vette rear in a fat Ford frame? It looks to have been discontinued in favor of a C4. I have the complete rear frame section from the 'vette, & was considering grafting that to the '40 frame, but mounting it to the stock frame makes the body...
  8. Transmission - Rearend
    Hi folks, I just picked up an all aluminum T-10 with a 7D case and a tail piece date code of 12/22/61. ON the main case next to the mid-plate (also aluminum) are the following numbers which I assume are VIN and build code. These are: S187225 and WM2913 (plant and date). Anyone know where I can...

  10. Engine
    Hi all, my engine is confirmed 350. The back side casting code says it's a 350 but the front passenger side head casting number can't be seen. I'll I see is the number "22." I know that crate engines don't usually have the casting code so I'm thinking its a crate? I was told when I first bought...
