My Vette....



This is my 1999 $8K Vette.



This is after cleaning the engine and replacing all the sensors, plugs, and new MSD wires. It still needs a new clutch but after replacing the leaking EOP it has stopped chatering almost completely. It will also need new seat cushions for the drivers seat and some other small details but it has been a dream come true.

Thanks for looking. Look for more pics when all the goodies get installed.

My wish list...

Monster stage one clutch with billet fly wheel up to 450HP
VaraRam Cold air intake
BB polished intake with polished throttle body
Billet fuel rails
BB Long tube headers with cats and X-pipe
Corsa muffs
Custom paint

Thanks! I am tearing it down now again to finish the long tube headers and the high flow cats with the x-pipe. Then I am pulling the front of the engine down to replace the timing chain and put a under drive pulley on. I am also going to pin the pulley in preperation for the super charger.

Its been so much fun! I can't stop.......

You have the horsepower flowing threw the veins. If you plan on a supercharger, I would not put a under drive pulley on. Under drive pulleys slow down all the accessories. It will also slow down your supercharger. Even if you ran the smallest pulley on your supercharger, it would not make up for the under drive pulley.

You know what! Thats a darn fine point! I will have to think on it and weigh the time before the super charger can be baught against the gains from the under drive and then have to swapp the other back in........ thinking hurts my brain.
