Friend has $10k to spend...

This is a discussion on Friend has $10k to spend... within the Corvette forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; Not sure, haven't done too much research yet. What's the big difference?...

    Get the procharger. Upgrade your clutch, get a good set of headers, and have it professionally tuned. Your car will be like stock until you smash the go pedal and you should have around 450-475 hp at the wheels. Get a decent guage package and monitor your a/f ratio and fuel pressure. You will be fine. I went with a A&A Procharger system along with a blower head/cam package and I'm at 560hp at the wheels. The cam isn't too radical and the wife can drive it anywhere. Very fun and conservatively tuned. I upgraded my suspension with Z06 pieces and went with Hotchkis swaybars. Whatever you do, have fun! Good luck!

    A man with a plan right here. I'd follow it word for word.

    Yep. People on the Corvette Forum have several with a supercharger and no problems.

    What psi are you putting out? A procharger with the right heads/cam will make a lot more than 560 to the wheels. Im making 460rwhp with just a heads/cam package, obviously I also have a full exhaust and CAI as well but no FAST intake. I have a friend with a '03 Z06 that had a procharger on it and he was making around 520rwhp with just it and LG longtubes.

    8psi and its conservatively tuned. It was in the 590s with more timing. This has a modest blower cam/cnc head package.

    is a cam required w/ a blower or can you get by with just headers and a tune like some1 mentioned before?

    No you don't need a cam, just like we don't need sports cars

    Cam isn't needed, stock is fine and should put you at 475-500 rwhp.
