    who needs a turbo (or two) when one has cubic inches?

    and

    Sidepipes. that said, the evil part of me wants to see someone put sidepipes on a C4 and then get out of the car without burning themselves to death... I also left that one off - don't have to climb over and out of a C3.

    still - I was recommending a C5 instead of a C4, not a C3 instead of a C4.

      My issue with the attorney's list is the assumption that you somehow "need" an LS. Not saying that the LS isn't a great engine, just that a top end kit (or a 383 traditional SBC) would get enough HP to make you happy for a lot less hassle. And maybe a Holley or EZ-EFI or some such. I suppose that at some point an aftermarket ECU might be needed but I haven't researched it enough t5o have a valid opinion on that.

        Browsing the classifieds on a daily basis for a C6 Grand Sport to replace the Challenger - lease is up next month. Lighter weight, better aero, room for a bigger (wider) tire and lots of tuning options available ......

            What is this "LS" you speak of? Is it a hemi?

              While you seem to think this some how turned into some competition between a 3 and a 4 , it's not on my part . There really aren't to many vettes I don't like . My point is I just ended up with a running carbed 85 with a super 10 and a non shifting Doug Nash overdrive with a dana 44 for $2000 my kid owed me . He wanted to move on to a fiero in spite of my trying to talk him out of it . So I may have over paid . But if you find one with a dead motor or some electrical gremlins you could get down to 1500 or 2000 . My point is its a good cheap platform. I do like side exhausts as far as looking at them but I really want the noise behind me . Unless the decibel level is around 80 . I've lost enough hearing to this habit .

                    Sloppy LS in a SN95 already has a recipe, but a twin turbo Gen 3 hemi in a C5 'vette? I'm thinking kevlar underoos would be the order of the day. That's gonna get heated. Sounds okay to me, you guys work it out...

                    /edited, of course...

                    Wait, a 351w in the S10, manual please. I think the old cop car Crown Vic oil pan should fit...
