Default Re: December feature car ...... COPO PETE's Nova

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="">quote:</font><HR>This is the current NHRA rating of the LT-1. It lists the 355hp rating for the Corvette and the Camaro, in more than 1 place, so it doesn't look to be a misprint.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I believe you... It's just very surprising. I've owned a 1970 L-46 Corvette as well as several 1970 LT-1 Corvettes and in truly stock form, the LT-1 definitely has the advantage (especially above 3500 rpm). The NHRA factored horsepower ratings certainly have changed over time... Heck, look at the L-88s rating from the 1972 source; it's less than the L-71/L-89. You can't even run an L-88 in stock eliminator anymore... It's super stock only now. Of course, NHRA's goal is to make the racing competitive... Not have the "fast" cars win all the time.

I'm really anxious to see how Pete does with his COPO 9010 Nova when he decides to get serious with it. Should be a real runner!

Regards,

Stan
