1981 Chevrolet Corvette ('04 GM "Blue Ice Metallic")

Modifications

Drivetrain
'05 5.3 L33 bored out and converted to '02-'04 Z06 5.7 LS6 specs. Tremec TKO500 5 spd. w/upgraded carbon fiber syncros. LS7 clutch hydraulically operated. Dana 44 IRS w/3.54 gears and C4 carrier built by tracdogg.
Interior
Changed the interior from Grey to Black. I will be installing new seats this winter. Mid America did this seat project for me this summer. I wanted my new seats to be made out of the new "suede" material that is used in the new C6's. This material is called "Alcantara." I can say I have the first ever made C3 seats made with this material.
Exterior
L88 style hood. Ghost flames down the side.
1969 style N11 side exhaust. 2.25" OEM style mufflers by "Sweet Thunder Exhaust." I even incorporated catalytic converters to keep the emission police happy.
Audio
Custom Audio Model 2 w/amp.
Suspension
PST poly bushings through out. Pretty much stock. 7 leaf HD spring. I will be putting a Borgeson power steering box in this winter.
Wheel and Tire
Stock size 15X8 chromed Corvette rally's.
P255/60R15 Firestone Firehawk's.
