Here is my current build. 1992 Corvette that I picked up in September of last year. This will be an all around street strip car. AC, heat, stock converter 80e, full exhaust so the wife and jump in and grab groceries if she wants. But also going to be the weekend toy to have fun at the strip and hopefully run Rocky Mountain Race Week next year or the following. Fun build with a very low budget. Plan for it is to look 100% stock on the outside but party on the inside and under the hood. In the middle of finishing cooling system and trying to adapt for the IRS 8.8 to the Dana 36 batwing cover with a little help with @flynfrog on the discord server. Here are a few as she sits!
Hoping to get it painted and rolling down the road by spring 2021.
Here is just a few item I can think at the top of my head. Ask questions if you want! 2003 LM4 5.3, Decapped injectors, 340 lph fuel pump, Twin ebay t04e turbos, dual 38mm wastegates, trailblazer flipped manifold on passenger side, Grand Prix GXP straight manifold on driver side, 7" brake booster to clear manifold, China Speedmaster intake manifold and fuel rails, 2002 Buick regal brake fluid reservoir (fittings on outside to clear manifold), 2002 S10 blazer radiator fans, 2001 Chrystler Sebring dual fans (fits like a GLOVE), 2002 blazer cruise control module, and P01 PCM with 2 bar flex OS. Battery in back

Full on ramble video on latest update and plans. Cold side almost fully mocked up. Need to work on air inlet filter ideas for turbos and tidy up wiring. Once this is done then it’s on to the 4l80e and rear diff setup. 80e will be the easiest as it just fits the way it is. Just going through it and add the parts to handle the power. Rear diff I explain right away. I think for ease of fitment and all around cost this will be best as parts for it are off shelf stuff.

Fantastic. I had to go look up how well a 4L80E fits into a C4. It's not as near bad a swap as I would have thought quite honestly. Certainly seems easier than the 8.8 stuff I'm seeing.

Update time. Did even more today. Video was recorded yesterday but I did get the rest of the Tbolt clamps done for the cold side and turbo inlets. Got the Dana 44 rear diff and will begin to get the 80e sorted out. Once that it is done it's time to start slapping those in. TPS sensors still needs addressed.
