’68 Nova

Kent Salmen
Kensington, OH

No matter how you slice it, modern power in an older muscle car is just plain cool. In Kent Salmen's case, he yanked the original drivetrain in favor of a low-mileage 5.3L LS out of a 1/2-ton Silverado. He's even running the truck transmission, converter, and exhaust manifolds, but added a Corvette LS6 intake. Suspension and wheels are still factory. Kent upgraded the rear with a 3.73:1 gear set and posi unitto hold the new found power. Better yet, Kent claims to get thee time the fuel mileage!
