Default 1991 Corvette w/ LQ4/LS6 hybrid is ALIVE

And she sounds angry!

She has a 6.0 truck block and bottom end
ARE ported LS1 heads (300 cfm flow)
CC 232/238 114 LSA .600 lift camshaft
LS6 intake
Z06 Exhaust manifolds and oil pan
4L60E that fully built
Dana 44 rear diff

The car's been down since November... and I changed my mind on the L98 rebuild in January. Started amassing parts for the project then. On June 21st at about 10:00 am she was alive. You can read about the build here:

Many vendors contributed to this project-

Speed Secrets -Thanks Ellis!

Nelson Performance Wiring Harnesses- Thanks Allen!

Speartech- Thanks John!

Fred Beans- Thanks for the best prices around on new parts!

KARSHOP- Thanks Gene!

Corvetteforum.com C5 Used Parts- Some of the best people around and the best deals on used parts!
The tech and performance sections here are great, too!

LS1tech.com- Some of the most most knowledgeable engine swap guys reside there. Priceless info!
They have a huge resource for used parts as well. Several of my components came from there!

PerformanceTrucks.net - Another great source for parts!

I can't even start to name all the individuals that helped either passively or actively! I poured over this section and internet nightly for hours doing the research and tracking down the parts. Every post in here has merit!

THANKS to everyone!

I fixed the link...

CCC is not in the cards for this one. Not as a participant anyway. As a Convertible with no rollbar... she's really not gonna pass tech as capable as she should be.
