Engine swap

Postby danstern » Mon Mar 07, 2011 11:59 am

While this car is pretty cool, it really isn't up to modern speed standards.
So, I thought I'd do an engine swap.
The old 3.3 liter 4 cam engine is coming out and I'm putting a 7 liter (505 hp) Z06 engine in.
I figure it will be the fastest 275 NART Spyder at the Monterey Historics.
I know you'll all approve of my improvement.

The above was at a local shop, Tillacks.
Also they had this sitting around.
It makes a Spyder look absolutely huge!

BTW, the little guy is for sale at $6-750K.

I like you approach to the yellow car. May I suggest ABS disc brakes, flared fenders with wider modern wheels and low profile tires, along with a hood scoop or two to keep the z06 power plant sufficiently chilled?

How about hydraulics so you can slam it to the ground? Oh, and don't forget the fuzzy dice

Just got back from PEP Boys with the fender flares, wing, Neon lights, NOS kit, great hydraulic shocks, sheet metal scissor, etc.
You'd be amazed how easy it is to cut up the Aluminum body to prepare it for my improvements.

Hey, as long as you're cutting up the body why don't you take out those ugly headlights and put in pop-ups!

Finally, it would be much easier to turn if you put a 9\" chain steering wheel on it.

Well, along that vein, how about a nice set of spinners and some under-body neon lights...
