^Same for me with the BMW, a few more months = 2 years for the DSM.

Re: Project Corvette

That sucks, but I'm guessing you bought it with a worst case scenario in mind price-wise. Should be a lot of fun when it's done though.

Re: Project Corvette

Yea it was bought knowing the engine could be 80-90% toast, was just hoping to get lucky haha. Didnt think it would need a new clutch being only 13k miles old. I talked to Monster and they said their C7 twin disk they pulled off a high HP car with 40k miles and still looked great. So that is promising.

Re: Project Corvette

Picture update. Shortblock is being assembled after they finally received all the parts, rotating assembly was balanced and the old crank was polished.

Twin Disk C7 clutch arrives tomorrow.

Re: Project Corvette

Glad to see progress is being made! I'm sure you'll love the C7 twin-disc. Did you go with the OEM flywheel, or the lightweight aftermarket?

Re: Project Corvette

More progress! Motor is in and bolted up. I plan to work on it when I can this week, getting things slowly buttoned up. Lots of little things to do still.
