1985 Corvette Coupe - Custom Blue Metallic
383 TPI - TCI 700r4


The '85 is my cruiser and weekend project. I have learned a ton about automotive work and problem solving with it. Building the '85 to fit my vision has been quite the roller coaster ride but I wouldn't have it any other way!

  • Transmission - TCI StreetFighter 700r4 w/ Stage 1 Shift Kit
  • Engine - 383 4 bolt w/ forged pistons, aluminum 170cc - 62cc chamber heads, 1.5 aluminum roller rockers, Crane Cam 114132, High Flow TPI base, TPiS large tube runners, Ported Plenum, 7 qt road race oil pan.
  • Suspension - Bilstein shocks, Pfadt front sway bar, Poly bushings, VB&P front & rear springs, advanced street alignment
  • Exhaust - Hedmen 1 5/8" Headers thermal coated, High Flow cat converter, all stainless pipes.
  • Fuel System - Accel 24# injectors, Walbro GSS242M 190L/Hr pump, BBK regulator.

Now that I've learned how to take Ego Check from you, it won't be an issue. Just plow right through until you reach the pavement on the other side.

:devil:

Nice write up Dan. Wanna do one on my car now?
Sure, but since half your '87s original parts are on my car, it shouldn't take too long.

:laughing:
