Got the trans back in the car with the converter restalled as a 4b. This converter is what I was missing performance wise! Turned this car into a whole other animal. I can brake boost to 3000-3200. Transbrake is functional.

Added a wideband bung to the passenger header while the car was down. Just need to pick up a wideband now

Looking at getting some new tires before going back to the track.

I went with a 3b. Circle d says it's a 3800-4k converter. Most people say it's too big. My experience in my years of cars says it will be perfect.

Couldn't agree more, my car made peak torque at 4200, so it's only logical to have a converter flash to around there...

Also should add, it takes about 2500-3k rpms to get really moving. Everyone looks at me as if I'm slipping the shit out of my clutch lol

Thanks man, It takes time to get things all sorted out...

Picked up a set of oem zl1 floor mats off craigslist. Brand new in the plastic for $70

Taking my car to get my fender fixed after someone opened their car door into it as I was driving by. Going to have my door resprayed from a scratch that was on the car when I got it. Also going to have him fill the 3 trunk holes and respray it for the zl1 wing. making it a zl1 clone little by little

Oh, I'd be so pissed on that smacking the fender.

BTW, I got the 'red' version of the spark plug wire covers -- like having those...

ZL1 clone? I'm all over that ;o)...

Keep it up!

Got the car back! Guy did one hell of a job... total cost $230, what a steal!!!

I got my zl1 alternator in from the local dealership. Tail light tint will be here tomorrow. I plasti dipped my tail light bezels flat black tonight. The spoiler and zl1 emblem should be here sometime this week!

Found this great product- griots speed shine, by far the best quick detailer I've ever used!

Just a picture showing the car all cleaned up and with all the tint on it ( I know the windows need tinted lol)

Ordered, the zl1 power steering pump ( same as the ss, just wanted to keep my other accessories for another project), power steering pulley and mounting bracket, a/c compressor bracket, and alternator bracket.

Now I just need the water pump, a/c compressor and belt, idlers, and ati balancer. Leaning towards having the snout ported by new era and getting a nw 102 tb.

Progress is being made!

Got the wing on. Its the ebay prepainted one that was $149 shipped. Color match is spot on and it fit perfect.

Finally got around to changing the transmission pan gasket. Replaced the cork one for a gm gasket.

Got a set of the hoosier 18157s. Getting them mounted Saturday. Going to the track November 8th (weather permitting) excited to see what she will run.

Think I might have went too loose on the converter. Cars I was putting bus lengths on before are now door to door until I lockup the converter. Will log some pulls and calculate converter slip. Might be a dig only car now lol
