The window would'nt be so bad if the motor would be centered. I wonder which auto tranny they are running and why..........

I love that style vette though and it looks like it performs.

Isn't the ZR1 engine capable of better numbers than that? If I recall correttly, they had a package back then for the 71 Vette that they also referred to as the ZR1 package.

The automatic could be soaking up a lot of that. And it's only running around 11 psi of boost. I'm sure you could turn up the wick a lil on boost and be around 600 rwhp.

Yeah, 71 had a ZR1 and a ZR2 option I believe it was a motor and suspension package, one had a BB and one had a SB.

Yeah the auto is sucking up some power. They increased the boost by one pound. Depends on the dyno and if the had the converter locked or unlocked.
