Officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS376/480 this coupe’s $8438 crate engine twists respectable 10.7 to 1 compression into 495 horsepower and 473 lb./ft. of torque. Dressed in a QuickTime bellhousing and billet flywheel the car’s tough Tremec TKO600 5-speed twists power to a 9-inch axle that’s fitted with big 3.70 gears. Under that pumpkin a Heidts Pro-G independent suspension seats modern coil-over-shocks opposite Detroit Speed mini tubs. That back-half pushes a Chris Alston’s Chassisworks front-clip which balances power rack-and-pinion steering between two more modern coil-overs. At the corners of that suspension 6-piston Wilwood calipers squeeze 14-inch Wilwood discs thanks to proven Hydratech hydraulics. And power meets the pavement through Painted Schott Velocities which spin 245/40ZR18 Michelin Pilot Super Sports in front of 295/35ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sports.
