  • 67 lt1 powered chevy II nova

    hadnt posted in a while. i thought i had already posted a thread on this car a couple yrs ago. maybe it was on carjunkies.
    i recently did a cheap ($41 in krylon rattle can and $12 scotchbrite and about $9 in sandpaper) paint job on it. lol turned out decent. lol

          Damn, that's hauling the mail for a 3.08 geared, stock LT1. Way to go.

            well, you would think a gear would help it. but, i doubt it. it runs out of steam quick with the stock cam. i think more gear would slow it down. lol

                    Nice! You don't see too many LT1 builds, but they seem to me like they're quite a bargain motor now with everyone overlooking them for LSxs.

                      havent posted in awhile. swapped out the 10" converter for a stock reman. to see what kinda mpg i could get. drove it to the track this past weekend made 5 passes and drove home. as well as around town. averaged 22.5 mpg. no overdrive!
                      while the tight converter slowed the car down on the motor. its faster with nitrous. ive also added 235/60 m/t drag radials (so no tire swaps) and added a cheap piece of rubber hose in the tank to prevent fuel slosh. went a new best of 6.59 @ 103 in the 8th mile.
                      drive it to work all the time too.
