    I didn't think anybody except hot rod guys knew about the LT1 All my buddies were sad that I bought a 5.0 for my FC project instead of something out of a Chevy but I still can't justify the cost of a T56 (guess I'm cheap). Good luck with the build!

    This is so me. The only difference is that you are actually getting stuff done.

    Car looks very promising so far, impatient to see it finished.

    Its true, T-56's are hard to find, and when you do find them, they're expensive. I paid $1,500 for mine, but I just wanted it that bad. Hope its in good shape, its going to suck if it turns out to be trashed.

    It looks like I'm getting things done, but that's three years of progress right there. That's pathetic. Just keep moving forward. When I decided I was going to do this build, I vowed to myself that I would see it through, or shut up about it forever, and never attempt something this big again. The greatest failure for me, would be to not finish the car. That's the goal this far. Just finish what I've started. Nothing is more discouraging to me, than giving up on something.

    About this time in the build, I discovered StanceWorks. I was so impressed with the site. I didn’t read the blog, or look in the showroom, the only section I knew, was “Builds”. There were so many amazing builds to look at! I’ve never seen such a variety of beautiful wheels, on cars as low as the ones I saw on here. It changed me. I knew there was a lot for me to learn. The things I knew about car modifying, were the things I saw my cousins do in my uncle’s bodyshop in the 90’s. Huge bodykits, 7” wide chrome wheels, miles of wheelgap, horrible exhaust cans, and ridiculous sound systems. We’ve all seen it, we all know it. I pored over a lot of the builds on here, and realized that I was doing a few things very, very wrong. But we’ll get to that.

    Time went on and wiring made no progress. I kept looking for upgrades in other areas. Since the RX7 was not a TurboII, it did not have a LSD. I found a TurboII differential and axles.

    This was entertaining. Would read again. Sub'd.

    Nice progress! The chevy computer can run that motor just fine!


    I love how people are always like "is it done yet?" You're like "no." They're like "huh, why not? Its been a week!" You're like "I need about three billion dollars and ten thousand hours to finish it."

    To feel good, you’ve got to look good. And to look good, you’ve got to have a corvette engine.


    So that’s what I got;

    A CORVETTE engine.













    Here is what I am going for:





    Also picked up some Borla mufflers.

    If this isn't a PSA against dual-drilling wheels, I don't know what is.

    A brand we all know.

    So I have a few odds and ends to put into the car this weekend to bring it a step closer to start-up. Put a new oil and fuel filter in it, fresh oil in the engine, stare at the wires some more... See if I can get it to crank. Should have an update next week...
