We'd really like your input on this one, so put your thinking caps on and warm up your keyboards.
Let's just say that you're a big C4 guy and you've got a C4 that is getting a bit tired in the old engine/transmission department. You've looked into buying a newer C5 but it was just out of the budget. Your body/interior are mint and you love the car but the cost of the motor/tranny rebuild to have the same old stock power level don't interest you. So what should you do? We've got a project brewing, we've decided on a 285 hp 5.3 LS-truck motor for our '87 C4 (45 more hp than stock) with a bevy of other goodies slated for this car. So now that you've got a little bit of teaser information, we're in need of your opinion on a few things. Here is the part where you and your opinion come in:
If you had a total budget of $15,000, ($11,800 remaining) what components would you choose? Specifically, we’d like you to indicate type and brand of headers, camshaft, intake manifold, clutch/flywheel, shifter, brakes, suspension, wheels, tires and anything else you care to mention.
So there it is. We'd love to hear from you. Feel free to post a comment here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be looking forward to your suggestions and comments.
