FORGOTTEN C3 Corvette Gets Supercharged - PART 1 (preparing for burnout competition!)

In a two-part series, and In preparation for a burnout show, I'm installing a Weiand/Holley 142 blower, Holley carburetor, and other goodies on my 1980 Chevrolet corvette. With the pulleys provided, I should get around 5-6 PSI and turn this 4 speed into a tire fryer! I've got an idea for brakes to give me a little advantage, as well as special colored smoke tires. You can't miss this behind the scenes style video
If you'd like to try some colored smoke tires for yourself, search their huge selection at www.highwaymax.com and use code "ViceGripGarage" for 10% OFF! I don't make a penny from sales, but instead, want to pass a discount down to my channel fans.

    How much HP is that going to pump out once the supercharger and carb is installed? A guy just needs to know this type of stuff.

    if the accelerator pump works good, you can often fuel flood them out when they wont shut off from dieseling/run on condition. But obviously one of the best ways is shut off in gear or stall it with clutch since its manual.

    Kinda worried for the slivers of gasket between the runners of the intake that have nothing but a little RTV holding it on vs. even moderate boost. A guy would have trimmed those off, but that would have been the "right thing to do" I suppose.

    use a torque strap I "wide by 3/8" thick stainless steel strap. Measure from the front of the frame to a larger bolt on the front of the block. bolt to frame on the torque side, you can do both but mat not need to problem solved. An old drag race mod good luck
