1982 Corvette
Drivetrain choices unfortunately hit a new low in 1982. Basically there were no choices. Only one engine was possible: 350 cu. in., 200 hp. Mated to it was a four speed automatic transmission new that year to Corvettes. It featured a new fuel saving torque convertor clutch in gears two, three and four. A manual transmission was not available. California Corvettes were the same as those sold elsewhere. The last year that the Corvette was similarly restricted was 1954.

The 1982 Corvette engine bay did offer a glimpse into the future. A new fuel delivery system called "Cross-Fire Injection" made it's debut. Sometimes called "Throttle Body Injection", it can be thought of as a combination of a carburetor and fuel injection. The new system enabled the engine to be rated at 200 hp and still satisfied the increasingly stringent anti-smog regulations. A new electrical fuel pump integral to the gas tank was part of the system. Click here for a system overview diagram.
