A reader of the site, Keith, let us know about this 1992 Corvette which had it's 300 horsepower LT1 smallblock V8 yanked out and replaced with a 350 horsepower 4 cylinder engine. I don't have any good details on the engine currently sitting under the Vette's hood, other than the facts stated in the headling, namely it being a 4 cylinder engine making 350 horses on E85.

The vehicle was created by students from North Carolina State University, with collaboration from the Advanced Vehicle Research Center. Grants from FreedomCAR and NetLogic Microsystems Inc. helped finance the vehicle. Richard Dell, executive director of the Advanced Vehicle Research Center, said, "If you are going to go green, you might as well look good doing it".

Thanks for the tip, Keith!
