    It actually makes me think more of an Audi R8 than a Camaro. There have been a lot of uglier concept pics of what the rear might look like so I don't mind it.

    Just about all nameplates lost money and the whole worlds sale's were in the crapper. It isn't a Vette specific issue. Bad cars and no interest doesn't happen over night. Stock market crashes do. The...
  3. How can I temporarily raise the ride height of a lowered car?

    I am looking at buying a C5 from about 2000 miles away. It has ride adjustable QA1s, 19" wheels, and has been lowered. I am really worried about it being damaged in shipping. Other than overinflating...

    Thanks Jeff. I think I must be close to that. I am sure I could still squeeze out high 20s with a 60 mph cruise but I don't usually drive that slowly.:) I find the Hotcam drives pretty close to the...
  5. What kind of mileage are you getting with LT4 and Hotcam?

    I don't really care for myself but will be selling her this year and a lot of people ask. I have gears and headers/catback as well. And Merry Christmas:beer

    I don't think you need to do a head swap to get 450 crank hp from an LT4. Just a mild port and a lumpy enough cam.
    The tranny is not as beefy in the LT4 as the earlier LT1 cars. The ZF is rated for...

    Where do you shift with the hotcam?

    With stock valvetrain, headers and CAI. I have only ever seen dyno sheets on LT1s with this cam and they seem to fall off pretty fast after 6000rpm but it seems like my curve doesn't dive quite as...

    Front tire height and rubbing on 2001 C5

    I am going with a 255 45 Sumitomo on the stock 17" front rims and it is about 1/2" taller than the runflats, although no wider. The tire shop says I will have rubbing issues. They are not a...

    It looks like ZF says every 30,000 miles so you are right on there. It also looks like the recommended product is actually an engine oil rather than a gear oil:confused

    When does the ZF tranny oil need to be changed?

    I don't recall ever doing it in the old 4 speed cars but the technology has changed obviously. In a sealed unit does age of the fluid matter, or should you be looking strictly at mileage? My 96 has...

    I paid 18k for mine with 23,000 miles. Very nice BUT mods(hotcam, headers, gears etc). This would have really narrowed the market for the seller but was worth more to me so I consider it a huge...

    I think an LT4 would hand it to an L71 car unless the older car had slicks. I remember one of the car mags ran a stock early C5 against a restored 427-435 and the big block got destroyed, even with...
