Re: Air Cleaner Lid worth $5999 ?

I'm wondering if a 460 h.p. was ever made for a production car? and that kind of $ I'd want that whole engine under that lid

He replied yes, with the price and his email address, and we both got notification from Ebay about our "prohibited" actions and if we continued we'd be banned from Ebay.
I gave them my email address they sent me private email messages. Ebay never said anything to me and as far as I know to them either and I did buy stuff from them. One was wiring diagrams and one was clothes dryer parts, now I can't remember what the other one was, it was too long ago but I think it was a carburetor.

Their algorithms have improved over time, itís against their rules, they can and will suspend people for doing so. It may not detect every attempt at communicating outside of their system, but a seller has to decide if itís worth the risk. If ebay is more than just a way to raise a occasional extra spending money, the answer is probably no.

Wasn't the 1970 LS6 rated at 460hp in the corvette? I think GM had some rule that no car could have more hp than the corvette

BOTH the LS6 and LS7 were ORIGINALLY scheduled for 1970 Corvette production-------------NEITHER WERE EVER INSTALLED IN A PRODUCTION 1970 CORVETTE!

The ONLY PRODUCTION, repeat, PRODUCTION 454 installed in the 1970 Corvette was the LS5/390hp version (same as the 70 Chevelle LS5). Then, in 1971, the Corvette did get an LS6, but it was ONLY 425hp because of lowered compression.


The LS7 would have sorta, kinda have been a larger version of the 427 L88, with alum heads. Didn't happen. Yes a tiny quantity of LS7 engines with alum heads did get built and 1 or 2 got installed in 70 Vettes, and were driven by some members of the press ---------------------BUT THESE WERE NEVER AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC!!!!!!


Also, LS7 engines were built and sold OVER THE PARTS COUNTER-------------but with IRON heads. A dear friend of mine bought 4 of them from a Tulsa Chevy parts depts and he still has 2---------in the crate.
To me, the ultimate would have been an all aluminum 454 (ie the 69 ZL1). At one time, Chevrolet did sell bare alum blocks for those who wanted to build their own killer alum 454. Somewhere around 2003-04-05, someone had a 70 SS at Chevellabration with a "built" all alum 454 (anyone remember that car?). Pretty awesome I thought!

$20,000 air cleaner... When $6,000 isn't enough air cleaner for you.

Re: Air Cleaner Lid worth $5999 ?

You can send pii over ebay's email system you just have to be more creative.

Send them you email address surrounded by various letters.

Dont use the word AT or @

If its a common email handle like MSN, gmail, change it to geemale or some other weird spelling.

Send them the first part of your email in an email...

Then try sending them another part in a different email.

I have sent pics also, but you have to make them so they arent recognized by pic to text converters. Add colors, slashes to letters or just scribble all over them like captcha does.

Re: Air Cleaner Lid worth $5999 ?

The 1970 LS-5 (360 H.P.) in my El Camino is a bit different than the Corvette LS-5 (390 H.P.) engine. What is the difference between the two engines?
