Hi all. I'm new here...as in 10 minutes...I did a Google of Corvette Forums and found this. I just bought my first Corvette...a 1997. It is white w/ red leather and red/black trim. It is completely stock...bought it from the second owner (another Air Force guy) and it has 13,640 miles on it...and is in perfect shape.
I am looking for advice on what to do for good power gains? Exhaust, headers, intake, ignition, programmer? I have a supercharged Tahoe and it really moves...I want to wait at least 3 years before I put any sort of blower on it. I am going to take it and Dyno my starting point next week. I'll post what she does bone stock and after a few mods I will take it back to see what it did.
I obviously don't want to waste my money with things that don't work..but I want to get MORE POWER!!!
I've seen a couple guys that say don't waste your time with exhaust.....or intakes....and just go with a supercharger....and not waste your time with the "little things" that don't do much good. I've also seen twin turbo kits out there for C5s...which are like 8 or 9K.....maybe someday...but not right now.
Also, anyone know where I can get a good maintenance manual for my vette? I see Haynes and Chilton's don't make them for the C5s.
Any recommended exterior mods? or handling mods? Aftermarket brakes? anti sway bars? aftermarket suspension?
