    400 Dyno Data (with Holley & Q-Jet Comparison)

    In a reply I did in the Topic Post “Rochester Q-Jet Setup” (http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/c3-technical-performance/130172-rochester-qj-set-up.html) tracksnblades1 had some doubts about the Q-Jet’s abilities compared to Holley-based designs: I just finished up another dyno test...

    Photos of The Viking Lounge & Corvette Workshop

    With some of the posts and comments I’ve put up, I’ve had a few people asking if I have a “real workshop” or “just a garage”.

Could someone post or e-mail me some photos of the...

    Need Help & Opinions on Engine Swap

    I’m wanting to upgrade my ’64 Vette to be more like a European Sports Car, and what better way to do that than to install a 4-cylinder engine! The 496-horse engine is just too much, and flaunts the American excess that the World hates us for. We should be more sensitive to other Nations’...

    We took the 383 Small Block (see previous thread http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/c3-technical-performance/125743-383-dyno-results.html ) back to the dyno Friday to see if there was a little more horsepower to get out of it using a new mix of parts… Previous dyno results indicated...

On the dyno...

    Photos of my 3-1/2-year'64 Restoration & Rebuild Process

    I just completed a 3-1/2 year ordeal with the resto-mod of my ’64. This was a very rough car, and it probably couldn’t have been parted out since there weren’t any parts on the car good enough to sell… I ended up disassembling the car and every component assembly down to the lowest possible...
