Default Countach Replica with LT1

Guys new to the forum, have some issues with my LT1 (out of a 93 Camaro). Not sure if I have a main seal leak or oil pan. I also get some unusual surging of revs with the ac on coming to a stop. Hear are some pics I'll post the questions in the appropriate place.

you actually did a swap and plumbed in the a/c??

consider me impressed it works at all, i would have thrown all that stuff out

i'm sure we can figure that out, though, if you tell us exactly how you did the wiring

Thanks for the koodoo's guys but let me explain. I wanted to build it when I was in my 20's, didn't work out so I kept with the kit industry until I could buy a complete one. This was pro. built in Canada. He's a link to my website on the car. It has the full story of how I got hooked and, spec,s photo's and videos so you can hear a wide open exhaust note from the LT1.

pretty cool for a kit car!

thinking about your a/c problem; it's kind of a weird one, if it's just on decel. i wonder if it's possible that the builder didn't connect a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) from your trans to your ecm, perhaps just hooked it right up to whatever speedo he used..

Thanks, I've had the car for 3 years and each years a little worse. About 25,000miles on the engine, wondering if its a vacuum leak?

doubt it, but never hurts to get a bottle of propane and wave it around the engine while it's running, that finds vac leaks pretty quickly

The transmission is custom built (Richmond Transaxle), no sensors on it. It's progressively gotten worse. It is after decel say to a stop, through the clutch in and it starts to rev, from 500-1800rpm. Turn of the ac and blower and it calms down. Don't recall seeing anything hooked up to the speedo but could be wrong.

I'm getting caught up Steveo, behind on you messages, its actually a vintage air system on the ac, not the camaro unit.
