Got the motor out and torn down. Everything looks super clean. It still has the Callies crank in it, TRW pistons unsure if those were stock, and a set of h beam rods that I don't think they ever left Callaway with. I posted pic of cam if anyone know if that is stock too.

#90-005 was the test car and demo for Callaway Cars in 1990/1991 and as I recall, had around 44k miles when it was listed for sale in 1999 with two new turbos.. The broker had that car, and the red 1989 coupe w/ 1,600 miles. I bought the coupe.

So a Callies crank was standard, at least for a -90? (Or -91 since your car seems to have been updated?) I've read that somewhere but couldn't find the source when I was writing my article for Club Corvette Sweden.
Thanks’ for posting a lot of pictures, it's very interesting to see what later cars look like when disassembled :)

John, Nope. Black coupe is now on it's 3rd owner after me. I think that's 7 owners, total, over 31 years.
