now you can start the REAL upgrades. Get some HREs, heads, cam, longtube headers and drop the car (MUCH simpler on a C5, they all can be lowered with factory hardware, just twist a bolt and it lowers itself, none of this strut garbage) that should put you at about 400WHP.

I like how you say "its got to go" like its a financial thing, and then BAM! with the C5. lol. Ah well, its an awesome car, and that pushrod engine is easy to get power out of. In another year or 2 you can save to do an LS7 swap and twin turbo that! You would be getting probably about 600 at the wheels or so. Im jealous.

Tranny update- we put it in the car on sunday, and got it fully installed, however had no tranny fluid so hopefully friday or sat at the latest I'll know how good it is running. I'll update you later.

My girlfriends stepdad has a 1998 C5 that handles really well. I love driving that thing, he's putting about 470hp on the ground. But no suspension mods. Awesome car to drive, nothing like pure american muscle.

lol. Riceboy mentality there ^

Sure, a Pontiac Bonneville will handle like ****, but the Corvette is still a contender among contenders.

If not for the sheer fact that I'd kill myself if I had one right now, I'd love to have a C5. I actually like the body better than the C6.

research the lateral g's some mustangs or other american cars can handle then compare them to w/e you want. american cars used to be infamous, (just because they were big and going quick around corners wasnt the biggest of things other than nascar) for handling bad but most definately not corvettes.
i gaurantee youll be amazed when you realize that there is really no difference anymore.


EDIT: oh yeah back on topic, i was actually considering just what you did a couple months ago but im in school so i decided ill just wait and get something better. great choice, corvettes are one of my alltime favorites.
