Hey All, my name is Blake, and I have been a long time lurker, and have had some complications in my corvette owning experience, but I own a dark red metallic 1986 corvette base, that I originally purchased for a song, and intended to flip, as it had a flattened cam lobe. I picked the wrong shop, and suffice it to say, I drove it off the trailer into their shop 3 years ago, needing only a cam change, and that was 3 years ago. Since then, I got laid off, started my own business, and am in the process of finalizing a home purchase, so since they hadn't completed the work , and they cant charge storage until the job is done, and they have been storing it inside, I haven't made any effort to get the car out of storage. Now that things are starting to settle down, I am going to go in there with a trailer and just tell them they can either give me back the car, or I will have paid book time for half of a camshaft swap into a court registry by the end of the day, have the complaint for conversion, I prepared filed by the end of the day, and return with the Sheriffs to recover the car. It has a set of Skip white NKB heads, Ram's horn manifolds, and a gm flat tappet 327 300 hp cam in it. They got the cam in, then called me to tell me the pushrod holes in the head were in the wrong place (even though they are clearly not, and the car actually ran in that configuration. Next they told me I needed to put stock c4 manifolds back on it because the sparkplugs didn't clear the rams horn manifolds, (which we already know they did, because the car ran in that configuration. That was the only 2 complaints I heard in the last 3 years, and it continues to sit, while I am sure the tires flat spot, the Battery loses its charge, and every seal in the car goes bad. My original plan was just to flip it. With C4 corvette prices all over the board, I am no longer positive I would even be able to make any money off of it, so I sold my other 2 project cars in the anticipation of getting the car back to put a turbo on. Now I am very serious about putting a Gen Vi BBC in it with EFI, and seeing if I can get it to clear the stock hood and parts with the right combination of swap parts. I have soaked up everything on this amazing site, and when I get moving (hopefully by march of this year) I aim to keep a detailed log with lots of updates to share. I think a BBC can be put in here, without having to move the steering rack, or notching anything with the right combination of parts. I believe my toughest issue will be getting everything to fit under the stock hood. I don't suppose anyone knows if the stock L29 vortec manifold would fit under the stock hood? Otherwise, I was thinking about getting an Edelbrock Victor Jr. Efi Oval port manifold, shaving down the carb bad as much as possible, and then running an Accufab low profile 4150 throttlebody on it with a drop base air cleaner. I believe I could get that to work under the stock hood, although If I could get the L29 manifold to work, it would save a boatload of money! I am also interested in doing this with as many factory GM parts as possible. Lofty goals, but I have had some fairly successful projects in the past. Happy to be here, and look forward to our future discussions!
