Your car looks BEAUTIFUL!! :cheers:

The parts in the garage will make you grin. :D

Have you thought about doing a torque converter and gears?
First: ragvatte, no I didn't do all the work myself, just some.

Second: War Machine, I hope they make me grin, and yes I am going with 3.73 gears. I don't know about a torque converter, I heard I should go with a 2800 stall. What do you think?

Thanks for the compliments guy's, I do the best I can with what I have.

2800 sounds good to me but I'm a little bias. :laughing:

I have a 2800 stall w/ 3.54 gears. From my experience w/ that I'd have to also recommend a trans cooler. You'll be running much higher rpm's. I don't see exhaust on your list so I assume you don't have any mods to that. If you plan to install headers in the near future, maybe look into an oil/trans combo cooler. The headers will cook the oil in the oil filter. I'm looking at oil/trans combo's and I'm probably going to relocate the oil filter too.

I have one problem, I live in Cali. I have yet to find headers for my car that are smog legal. I do however plan on getting flowmasters 50 series.:thumbsup:

Tony, One day we will hook-up, soon I hope.:buhbye:

You know, I really don't know what makes them illegal, but everytime I call anyone about headers they tell me they don't sell headers for the 84 Vette. The closest I came was hedman 68447. Don't know if I should chance it or not. Can you check them out and let me know what you think?.

That depends on where your EGR is connected to the exhaust. I uploaded a picture to the gallery of an exploded view cross fire and I see the EGR valve on it but I don't see where the EGR connects to the exhaust. The 68477 headers have the EGR connection on the passenger side. If yours is on the same side then these headers should work. They have AIR too so they should be emission friendly.

WOW!!!:surprised Good job!:thumbsup: I want to bring somthing to your attention about the 373's you plan on installing....I have them & love them however when I had the x-ram setup on I ran into a wall at 4000 rpm's....felt like a rev limiter....I wat told thet I had too tall of gears for my setup!:surprised As soon as I yanked the old engine & did away with the crossfire/x-ram I can go to 6000 rpm with ease! I just want top warn you....I hope you dont have the same problem I did (yes I had a new distributer & 85 fuel pump). Also 2800 stall is what I am running & I love it...just remember that a 84 has 27 spline not 30....I ordered the wrong one the first time...Good luck!:cheers:

I'm so happy to see these 84's being worked on. I always see the advise to people to "buy the newest you can afford" but someone needs to be buying and modding these older Vettes. Keeep up the good work.

For some the newest is the best way....alot of people are not that good at working on cars......I cant wait to get a c-3 to restore...of course a non origional modded version!:smokin:
