    Ok, so I'm driving it finally

    So I decided to change my frame last year. The old one had some cracks. It could have been repaired but my buddy Dan had a real nice one that he had perimiter welded and powder coated so I bought it to use. I had wanted to install an lsx style engine for some time. So I figured that it...

So if I put power to it, turn on the key, should the throttle valve in the throttle body operate with the foot feed even if the thing isn't running? It would be interesting to see if...

    Battery Cold Cranking Amps

The battery placement in my '65 Corvette is quite compact so I need the smallest battery that will work. Of course the smaller the batt, the less available cca's. The car will not be run in too cold of...

    Rear Trailing arm bolt

    About to drop my body back on my '65. Does the rear trailing arm bolt insert from the outside of the frame or the inside? I'm sure it is installed from the outside but my friend who used to work at a Corvette shop disagrees... Thanks, Frank

    LSX mounts to C2-C3

    For anyone thats interested I have decided that pretty much all suppliers of of adaptor plate are copying each other, wrongly. Every adapting mount that I see advertised places the engine about 1.5 inches too far ahead. Including the Scoggins Dickey super fancy billet adaptors I bought. Th...
