Under the hood sits a 5.7 L LS1 V8 which produces 380 horsepower thanks to stainless steel long tube headers and cold air intake. Behind the engine sits the Corvette torque tube, T-56 six-speed transmission and C5 rear end.

    Nice looking build. Even the extended fender flares look appropriate when stuffed full of big meats..
    Nice choice of engine also. I can’t get to the Hardcore site, but assume the engine was pulled from a donor vehicle, It really seems to make a good daily driver..

    • Yes the engine did look used. I can’t get to their site now either. I hope they get it back up soon. There were a lot of nice projects they had worked on.
