Never seen anything like this before! Must have some serious torque, but I can't imagine what it must sound like.

Im left with mixed feelings on this one. Seems sacraligous to strip out the stock V8, but I'll be damned if that doesn't look pretty. I wish you had a video so we could listen to er purr

The car is the creation of Ryan Lusk, a diesel mechanic in Iowa with a side business called Low Budget Diesel Performance where he converts vehicles by installing diesel engines for better fuel economy and performance. This Corvette came to him as a rear end smash up. Instead of replacing everything with factory parts, Ryan decided to make a drag racer out of it. Transmission
