A year removed from C3 ownership and I am itching to get back. Don't get me wrong, the ZR1 is an amazing car and a bargain at its current market value and a total gas to drive, but I think it needs a stable mate. I have always wanted to do a resto-rod chrome bumper big block shark. Has anyone ever tried to shoehorn the above referenced engine in a C3. I am concerned about clearance issues regarding the relatively high rise manifold and wonder whether it would clear a stock L-88 hood. Any help?
