First off i would just like to say that i am damn proud to be a part of this. And even more proud to be a part of the team at vetteXperts. here's some eye candy on an upcoming build we have. the body is a 1967 and the rolling chassis, ... well,...

Eye Candy, :thud: That's better than Porn:thumbsup:
................even us C5Z owners will be envious. :D

My first Corvette ride was in a mule 67 L88 Vert with sidepipes to a dyno test cell. I was 4. I lost the hearing in right ear as a result.

I would suspect that it will be difficult to snake pipes through that rear end..................

Sidepipes!! :cheers:

LS7 :thumbsup:
and that's a c7 suspension holding it up. i mean idk if the adjustable coilovers are but the upper and lower control arms and knuckles and sway bars n stuff are all c7. those brakes are brembo c7 upgrades i believe with 2 piece rotors. and those rims are ccw. the diff is also incredible. the welds on the frame are outstanding. this will be the only ls based c2 on the road with the a/c compressor in the original ls placement down low on the pass. side. and no oil pan swap it's keeping the dry sump oiling. and while i am not sure which way we are going with the exhaust yet, i personally would LOVE to hear what an ls7 with sidepipes sounds like. seriously.

oh gosh i didn't mean it literally like that. this is a bought kit. its just rare to see the compressor there on a c2 or c3 chassis. and i appreciate the heads up on the sidepipe thing. i hope you are wrong but to be honest i have never heard any ls engine with sidepipes that i can recall.

LS engines with side pipes do not sound that great when you stand to either side of car
That's true. I believe it has to do with the 4-7 firing order change on the LS engines. Either that or maybe the fact that they're manufactured from recycled Old Milwaukee beer cans

It has mainly to do with Camshaft Overlap and Cam Lobe Centerline angles.
Also the Rod to Stroke Ratio of the Engine Gunny.

LS Engines all have ultrawide lobe centerlines.
Rely upon the cylinder heads soley to make HP.

Did a good job but left much on table untapped Normally Aspirated.
Unfortunately it takes lots of money to make 800-2000 Hp with them also.
Unless a Big Nitrous kit is used.

I think they might really perform with old school Race cams.
But no one would be able to tune it EFI.

The Header math is pretty universal 64LS.
Its on Grumpys site.
Does not matter what engine you have its still an air pump in crude definition .

With 370-454-455-480 cubic inch cubes at roughly 500 Hp 2.000" inch primary header tubes should be used.
Longer the primary tubes the better low and midrange on the street.
28-33 Inch long tubes work nice on BB Cars.
Kills excess low end torque so its easier to hookup.
Collector length and Collector diameter tends to be engine family specific .

The camshafts usef in all GM LS & LSX & B8 & B15 Are so mild compared to traditional Race engines.
My vote why they don't sound right uncorked open exhaust.

Yep, you LS guys give me gas. I just like the looks of a LT1/LT4 engine. And that block you mention, yes it's cast from good ole' American iron. Your LS is made from recycled Old Milwaukee beer cans. The LT's have a streamlined intake and a nice oval throttle body and the LS intake looks like a Jamaican drug dealer's dreadlocks and the throttle body looks like a hooker wanting to give a BJ.

The LS1 wasn't that much of an improvement over the LT4 and we do sound better. I also don't like to pull the heads to play with the lifters and that oil pump......why. The stock SBC oil pump has worked great since 1955. If it ain't broke.....don't fix it.

Of course I'm just messin' with you guys.:laughing:
