what is special about the l82 motor
what was different about the L82 MOTOR from the other motor horsepower, etc how can you tell them apart and was there many vettes with the L82 motor in them
Hello Lilarden-- The L82 was one of three engines available for the 1974 Chevrolet Corvette. The L82 was a 350 cubic inch V8 giving off 250-hp with a 4-barrel carb. The ZQ3 also was 350 cubic inches but only generated 195 horsepower. The LS4 was 454 cubic inches and was listed at 270 horsepower. Looking at the VIN on your car, the fifth digit indicates engine type. If it is the L82, the letter designation is T. I got all this information from one of my favorite sites for Corvettes. Someone has done an awfulk lot of homework at http//www.100megsfree4.com/corvette/1970/vet74.htm. Take a look for yourself. Good luck from Bovan.
72 the engines were low compression , a BB chevy engine was pushing about 200 hp compared to 71 at about 375 hp.
