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.
