My Corvette Life: 1990 Callaway Twin Turbo Project

Post by My Corvette Life »

Hello! My Name is Chris and I have a YouTube channel called My Corvette Life. I primarily produce videos showing "How-To" maintenance and restoration projects. My next project will be a 1990 Callaway Twin Turbo (B2K). This is #34 of 58 for 1990.

YouTube: My Corvette Life - https://www.youtube.com/chrisdraper2007

This car has been sitting in a storage garage, being neglected, for 15 years (since 2006). It truly is a modern barn find.

I hope you guys will join me on the long journey to bring this car back to it's former glory. I've already read so much helpful information on this forum. It's an incredible resource!

I left you some answers on the Kooloff windshield.

This is the forum where you can grab the most knowledge about getting the car back on the road.

I took and 88 that hadn't been driven in a decade and made over 510hp and 700lbft of torque with simple bolt-ons

Wow, sat 15 years

I can see a replacement alternator, possible R134 conversion on AC, and the exhaust was changed. Later Brakes w/ added drilled rotors.

Is the one front wheel bent? Maybe just the camera angle??

The Kooloff glass is a rare option (similar to what was used on ZR-1). You should see LOF Kooloff on the glass.

From the AIR Pump, missing a hose, and the EGR crossover pipe is missing the cover and be CAREFUL what you replace it with - I saw a velcro (closure) one burn once. Be careful!!!

Looks like a fun project.

So Chris, what's the plan for the car going forward? You have a bit of work in front of you, but what's the game plan?

What will you start on first? Cosmetics? Mechanical? How about the fluids, including fuel? Does it have the factory greenish/gray RP Injectors, still? I've replaced many sets of these on L98-based cars and can help point you in the right direction, as can others here on the Callaway Owners Group site. We are here to help, and more knowledge than anywhere, including the factory. We live and breathe these cars :thumbs
