The brakes are upgraded to C6 calipers and rotors with Stoptech stainless brake lines. The car has brand-new 18x8 and 18x9 Special Edition Torq Thrust American Racing wheels with Sumitomo tires. The drive train is a 1998 Corvette engine with ProCharger supercharger kit and integrated custom 3" front-mount intercooler system. The car sports a brand-new flywheel and upgraded clutch to handle the power, a T56 6-speed transmission that shifts flawlessly through a new short-throw shifter and had a custom driveshaft crafted and balanced. The whole fuel system is brand-new, including the gas tank, stainless braided fuel lines, MSD high-flow fuel pump and 42-lb injectors. All the chrome pieces have been replaced or replated, including front and rear bumpers, windshield posts, door posts, grab-bar hold-downs, taillights, etc. The motor mounts, air conditioning compressor, slave cylinder, Wilwood master cylinder, chrome brake booster and starter are all brand-new. Ice-cold air conditioning and heat are provided by a custom Vintage Air system mated with the new GM air conditioning compressor. The interior has also been customized with a chrome steering column with tilt, smaller but original-looking steering wheel, new chrome horn cap, black seats with Alcantara inserts and red stitching on original seat frames with new foam. A one-off center console, painted and clear-coated black, which houses the Billet A/C controls, vent, touchscreen stereo system with GPS, CD player, back-up camera and iPod hook up. A custom center rear console was modified in place of the glove box and two speakers were installed. The stereo sounds excellent, with two larger speakers installed in the side kick panels. The exhaust has new 4-into-1 headers that flow exhaust gas out the head and into Flowmaster 3" pipe and dual mufflers into 3" tips.
