- Color: Dark Maroon Metallic (factory)
- Drivetrain: RWD
My car is an LS, special ordered from the factory with an SS interior (bucket seats, console, gauges and tach instead of idiot lights) as well as SS suspension. Everything I wanted that I thought I'd have to assemble myself from a donor SS, but already done straight from GM! I eplaced the factory 4.3 efi V6 with a 4 bolt main SBC. All machine work and assembly done by James Vignogna @ Vignogna Performance in Wappingers Falls NY. Slight overbore, Eagle H-beam rods, Silvolite coated hypereutectic pistons, custom Bullet cam shaft, Melling hydraulic roller lifters, bare aluminum Pro Comp Electronic angle plug heads (slightly massaged), filled with oversized Liberty Performance stainless steel valves, 1.5 ratio Liberty full roller rockers, all ARP hardware, and an ex NASCAR set of PSI springs. A standard pressure/high volume Melling oil pump and hardened oil pump driveshaft, combined with a 7 quart oil pan, and a Fel-Pro one piece oil pan gasket keep oil flowing. An MSD ready-to-run billet distributor and Blaster 2 coil sends the fire through a set of custom fit MSD 8.5mm wires, into MSD platinum spark plugs. Exhaust gasses exit through a custom fit set of Flowtec headers ceramic coated in black. From there a custom built 2-1/2" full stainless exhaust runs through an X-pipe, through full stainless Flowmaster mufflers, and out polished 3" tips in stock location. More details to come as time permits. Just finished full repaint in original factory color.
