    Hi all, new to the forum. I own a 1989 white Corvette. Just had a new 383 put in but don't have it home yet. It was in the process of being finished but Covid got in the way. A one man shop and his kid's schools closed. The engine is a two bolt main block with ARP studs, Scat stroker crank, 6" rods, Keith Black pistons, Comp Cam and roller rockers, AFR heads, Superram, Melrose headers, Borla mufflers and a Canton pan. I look forward to learning new things here. I've owned my vette a little over five years now. It's a daily driver and I love driving it. The photo is from last summer. The mufflers are now Borlas. I haven't a recent photo.

    Thanks for the welcome! The car is near finished. A couple things left. I put a Superram on the car. Didn't get the throttle cable bracket when I bought it off ebay. A friend helped me fab up a bracket to use. As a result the cable are a bit too close to the throttle body. We have tried slotting the bracket bolt holes but not enough. A 1/4" spacer is being made to move the throttle body forward just a smidgen. Going to bump the idle up a bit because the car is not liking 800 rpm when being pulled into drive or reverse. Not all the time but off and on. Then I can bring it home.

    Couple pictures of my engine in the car. The 383 is night and day difference compared to the L98 that inhabited the engine bay.
