Holley EFI to Power Ridetech’s 48-Hour Corvette

A typical eBay purchased 1972 Corvette will roll into the 48-Hour build center to be transformed into a fully equipped track monster. The build will feature Holley EFI, Hooker Headers, and Earl's Performance Plumbing. In addition to live wrenching, manufacturer-specific question & answer sessions and interviews will be held throughout.

5a9e18e4-348e-4bdb-91fd-5fe354f3944aRideTech made history four years ago by building a first generation Camaro in 48 hours. Now they’re doing it again, this time with a 1972 Corvette and you can watch every second of the build here! It will take place over three 16-hour work days starting at 8:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday, March 10th.

A typical eBay purchased 1972 Corvette will roll into the 48-Hour build center to be transformed into a fully equipped track monster. The build will feature Holley EFI, Hooker Headers, and Earl’s Performance Plumbing. In addition to live wrenching, manufacturer-specific question & answer sessions and interviews will be held throughout. As the C3 is disassembled, the parts that are not being reused will be available for purchase on eBay. How should the RideTech team finish off a build of this nature? They’ll be taking the car straight to the track after its completion, that’s how. And we think that’s a great way to finish!

The RideTech crew successfully built the 48-Hour Camaro back in 2011 and that ’67 Camaro has been on the road competing in events across the country ever since. Transforming a car or truck into something better, no matter what its shape, is what hot rodding is all about.

The Holley, Hooker, and Earl’s parts that will be used in the build are as follows:

  • Holley EFI Dominator ECU
  • Main Power Harness
  • LS2 Main Harness
  • LS Injector Harness
  • GM Drive-By-Wire Harness
  • J1A/B Input/Output Aux Harness
  • J2A Connector & Harness
  • NTK Wideband oxygen sensor
  • Coolant temperature sensor
  • Air temperature sensor
  • 100 psi stainless steel pressure sensor
  • Hooker engine mount plates
  • Hooker Competition mid-length headers
  • Earl’s Ultra Flex plumbing products
