When Matt blew up the hot little 327ci V-8 he used to run, he installed a Chevy Performance carb manifold on a ’97 Vortec 5.7L and stabbed it in place with a hillbilly fuel-injection system. That’s a Q-Jet to you and me. The exhaust manifolds are both eary driver-side Corvette ram’s horn units since the driver side uses a ball collector and not a flat gasket surface. Matt had to do some fancy machining to use the early short water pump accessory drive with the hydraulic roller cam. Ultimately, he machined the edge of the sensor wheel to fit an early timing-chain cover.
