What is this Corvette engine and what kit does it come from? I bought it at a show and am considering using it but I don't know if I have all the parts or how to detail it better. If I know more I can hit up Drastic Plastic for instructions and look up references. Thanks.

LT-5 from the '90-'95 Corvette ZR-1. The one you have is from an AMT kit, which was as I recall was a '90, unless it's from the "recall" "'89" version of that kit.

That engine and trans are also in the '39 Wagon Rod kit, but it has different exhaust manifolds. That 4-cam, 32-valve "Chevy" engine was designed by Lotus and manufactured by Outboard Marine.

The good ole "Chevy" LT-5...they had to get lotus to design them, because the Turbo V6 Grand Nationals were out running the Corvettes LMAO....I also have an LT5 I plan on stuffing in a 70s Muscle car

The instructions say the trans is a Borg-Warner manual 5-speed.

Gee, I wonder why it has ZF cast into the side of it (the last model pic....)

Would AMT/ERTL lie to us? It sure does look like the ZF.

Probably Sally from accounting was tasked with identifying the gearbox or proof-reading the instructions, and she was pre-occupied planning with all her BFFs to attend an upcoming shoe-sale.

LOL  :lol:  Well that's what I hear anyway.

 

What I have to say next I pretty much only say when I'm drunk, but....  I love you guys.  Seriously, you've all been a big help. Thanks.
