    Default Modding a C5

    This may make a few cringe, but I'm a fan of those bolt-on flares that you see on Porsche (RWB), Lambo's, Ferrari's. I'm throwing around the idea of finding a set that compliments the C5 and having them installed on my 03 Z06 along with wider wheels, different tire size, etc. I've seen C7's modded with that type of fender flare. I'm also thinking of re-routing my exhaust tips. Moving them out from the center to the vents on the left and right of the rear bumper. That will have to include removing the center louver of each vent and making the opening a bit larger. Engine mod to include supercharging, headers, cam, etc. Opinions? I'm up there in age so it may be a senior moment or another mid-life crisis.
