Since you obviously like modded cars, the starting point doesn't have to be a Z06. All the stuff you've done to the F--D can also be done to any C5 'Vette. There are a number of blown C5s out there making 750+ RWHP, as well as NA cars around 600.

98 Silver M6, C5R 427, LS7 Heads, F1C Procharger. 788 RWHP at 8 PSI, no methanol.

Mario,

You will find a ton of information on this site, I recommend you use the search function and get up-to-speed that way first.

600 RWHP can be achieved N/A with a 427, depending on how much you care about street manners. Or with a 383 and some nitrous. Or with stock ci and a lot of nitrous. Or with a blower. What works best "for you" would depend on how you plan to use the car (street, drag racing, road racing etc).

And C5's come with lowering bolts front and rear, I suspect you have seen many lowered Vette's - we just don't slam them ... that is not our way

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

this is one nice vette!!! what do you do to the bolts to lower a vette? a free mod? i know i dont need to start with a zo6 for my plans but i like the thought of modding one just because i wanted to mod a cobra and ended up with a gt, i ordered a c5r block yesterday to start building my 427 and i think im going to buy the guy down the streets car for 30,000, its a 02 with 37,000mi BONE STOCK!!

Try our vendor section,you will find more goodies than one man can afford.Go to one of the preferred tuners like Lingenfelter or LG Motorsport,they have whole bolt on packages,for whatever you want to do.Blowers,Turbos,TT,NOS,Headers.Comes with everything to do it yourself or they will install and tune it for you.
BTW The RED Z06s are bit faster.

CCW 18,19 chrome Z06 rims,Yokohama tires,ceramic pads,MA partition,shorty antenea,CAGS defeat,harness bar w/camera mount,saving up for LG long tube headers.
Just when you think they can't get any stupider,they keep talking.

it appeared to be stock. they only keep a few used cars on the lot so it is in good shape. hendrick is the place to buy a vette in eastern NC. i did not check the price.
919-380-8821 Hendrick Chevrolet-Hummer. good luck.

fyi, i have purchased 3 vehicles from them.
