Vette(s): 1982 Black, ZZ4, Hooker Side Pipes, 3.55 Rear,
Rebuilt & upgraded 700R4, All new suspension, brakes, & new Charcoal interior.
I put a GM Performance ZZ4 crate engine into my '82. Great engine! But you can go with the fuel injected models also. The GM ones are great & have that 3 yr/ 36k mile warranty. Good luck & have fun with it!
Vette(s): 1979 Black, Oyster interior purchased in March 1980
It depends on what you are looking for. If you want a modern engine in an older car, the LS is the way to go I did my 79 last year and chose to go the gen1 small block to give it the stock appearance. I just made mine the way I felt they should have been made . I chose to go with a 383. It has plenty of torque and bolts up to everything I had on my old 350. I went with better heads, cam, intake manifold, and headers. I even purchased a quadrajet from SMI to keep the stock look. It's fun when you can stay with some of the modern muscle cars,and when you go park and look at each others rides, they see a small block with a quadrajet. I stayed close to a z06 and shut down some coyotes and ls camaros. It's fun to hear the excuses on why they couldn't blow away a stock looking 79 corvette with a" quadrajunk". The c3's in my opinion has some of the nicest lines but they don't get a lot of respect. Whatever way you choose to go , make it preform like it deserves
