    With those mods its possible. I seen it happen with a few less mods. Sounds like a bad ass car, I love the LT4s, how much is he selling it for and for how much?
    Please post pix if possible.

    needs a few things like tune up ,vacum line,new clutch. but asking $4000

    to me it doesnt seem that bad 400+ rwhp for 4000 bucks and its a 1996

    also has ghost flames which im not crazy about and vette rims gun metal gray with chrome lips.

    If he's running a stock LT4 cam, no way 400rwhp. With an LT4 hotcam, it is possible, but 400rwhp is probably near the limit with that cam.

    i'd be willing to bet "lt4 cam" refers to Hotcam, based on the fact that it is even stated in the mods list. Some people don't even really know what they have. The car looks nice otherwise, but for that price I would look very carefully at the entire picture. Seems pretty cheap, but otherwise a great looking car.

    the kits from gm or any other vendor do claim 400hp+ with the kit...intake, hotcam kit and all. plus p/p heads does wonders! its one of the best things to do to a hiper engine....i guarantee that it is at least 400hp WITH those mods.
