Reviving our Editor's Junker C4 Corvette, Can it be Saved?

  • Published: 12 October 2019
  • Bad things happen when you do the wrong things to a car. But you know what's even worse? Not doing anything to a car at all. This 'ol C4 Corvette that our shreditor Kyle picked up for peanuts needs a whole lot of TLC and parts to get it running strong again. But when it does, you best believe it'll be rad.

    Special Thanks to Holley!

    If it takes 3 Hoonigans to change a fuel filter, how many Hoonigans would it take to LS swap Kyle’s Scrapyard Corvette?!

      0:40 Make it Cal Legal by registering it in a California county that doesn't require bi-annual inspections. I thought you guys knew about this loop hole that most track racers have been using since the late 90's.

      Before any of them get around to working on it, they'll need to order the wrong parts first.

          Hey Kyle, great vids. Beware! the original sending unit wiring is prone to failure. I replaced my fuel pump, great, no bueno if it doesn't know it's supposed to be pumping. If your Vette stalls at low idle or dies for no reason check the fuel pressure first. Keep something with you to tap on the filler neck while a buddy cranks the engine. It should get you home.
          Ask me how I know. I'm waiting to see your wheels! Check out 5ABI VT his ZR1 is sick and no budget.

                I used to be a Kyle, but seeing his evolution with the help of the Hoons has just been magical. It's so cool to see them all chip in to help him and teach him! The Carducation of Kyle. New Series.

                                      Grease holds that PITA rubber gasket in place. you can put it on without it but have fun keeping that gasket in place.

                                          Guys PLEASE make sure you slather those coilover bodies in ANTI-SIEZE - that's critical maintenance that coilovers REQUIRE, and yet that most don't actually do.

                                          Don't ruin your nice expensive coilovers; you've gotta love on a part that you're going to abuse that much

                                                    This is influencing me to build my father's abandoned 1986 Chevy Corvette, with the Manual 4+3over drive, and indy pace car plate car. I believe it needs immisions to smog the car, so this is a major influence to change the leaking valve covers, replace sparks and wires.
                                                    I did drive the Corvette for about half a year, when my Miata was down, and I enjoyed it very much, it just needs love.
                                                    I'm suffering from depression from losing my brother who is my mentor in automotive.. taught me everything from Initial D Arcade Ver 1. To playing Gran Turismo 3 super late at night, using the likes peak Suzuki to push a 60's VW beetle to 200mph on the Nurburgring straight. RIP Ron.
