| | Help me figure out my C4 swap
So recently I decided to put a carb on my 84 corvette and really like it, The stock longblock has 150k miles on it and too save you a long story iv been wanting too cheaply put a Ls based motor in the car, and I want too stick with the carb because I think it would be unique.
this is a cheap as I can do it type build, not because I am cheap but because I find it fun.
So for now 4.8/5.3.. long term goal is a aluminum block with a destroked crank such as LS1 block with 4.8 crank.
I want to keep my stock hood, is the LS1 setup going too be taller then a SBC? the carb setup on there now is a tight fit already.
I have a dana 36 rear end with 3.07 gears, for that reason I would really like too swap a superT10 into the car and eliminate the 4+3, the overdrive unit is weak and will probably not last with my goals, I know its possible too mount a T10 too a ls1 but can I make it strong enough for a 500hp motor thats not super torquey?
