Are you at least going to tell us the specs on the Vette??? I believe in SOME cases the cobalt, or srt would be faster (with just a Few goodies), I know I waxed an 89 with an SRT, But I dont think that was on to brag on seeing how I had more hp/tq, so what does yours have???

there was a lot involved in it. he wanted to sell it but he won't be able to get over 13-14k from it, so it was given away for advertising purposes to claim on taxes. that way i get me rwd car that i wanted and he gets some $$$ off his taxes this year.

as for the specs i haven't really looked anything up yet, i know it has 300hp, but that's all. but the engine and suspension are being rebuilt. it's got about 50k miles on it so it's still in good shape, but jmc007 showed me the procharger for the mustangs, and it so happens they build a kit for the corvette's, so i'm going to spend the car money on the procharger kit.(which will put it up to between 465-480hp) hopefully i will be able to order all the parts within a month, because i plan on starting the breakdown in a couple of days

So many mods out for the C4 it's ridiculous.

You just may have a devil in your electrical system, though. A buddy of mine had a C4 for a little less than a year. He had so many electrical problems that it spent most of that time in his garage. He was happy to get rid of it, especially for the C5 he has now (which has brake problems).

Still a sweet car, congrats on the new addition to the family
