    Engine Upgrade Question

    I have a '98 Corvette. I'm interested in getting heads and cam, maybe exhaust. What price seems reasonable installed with a tune?

    I was considering Twin Turbo but with the 4160e I don't think the tranny can hold. Thoughts?

    i would say around 3000. for h/c another 1000 for headers and another 1000 for a catback. youre still looking into tranny issues after all of that, just depends how aggressive you go. i would start at exhaust/headers then work from there. those are cheaper/easier mods.

    I dont have any tranny work done but I have all of that on my car already. As long as your not launching the car at high rpm's then you will be fine.
