CORVETTE RESTORATION HOW-TO AND TECHNICAL ARTICLES

 

 

   

Here are some great technical articles that I've found incredibly helpful in my restoration project so far. Some are Corvette specific, while others are fairly general.

For more articles like these I recommending checking out corvettefaq.com. Also, Comp Cams has a great tech page on their sight with lots of great engine articles. I referenced many of them while building my motor.
