LS9 Gets Dropped into a Warbonnet Yellow 1971 Corvette

It seems our new favorite tuners in Houston have a thing for LS9 crate motors. We featured Fastlane last week as wicked photos of a Chevy Silverado with an LS9 surfaced on their facebook page. Now we’ve got some photos of another LS9 install, this one more appropriate as the supercharged 6.2 liter V8 finds a new home in a classic 1971 Corvette.

Nicknamed “Golden Rod”, the Warbonnet Yellow C3 Shark will also be getting an upgraded suspension, brakes and other components necessary to handle the power unleashed by the ZR1′s 638-hp supercharged V8. Here are some additional photos of the engine swap from Fastlane:
