General Information

Corvette Coupe LT4
My youngest brothers car, he bought it for no other reason than he wanted something fast. And fast it is. It's a true LT4 with a procharger on it. I keep it at my place as he doesn't have anywhere to store it, and in exchange for storing it and doing all the work on it, I get to drive it whenever I want.

Like I said, procharged LT4. Long tube headers and louder mufflers. It ain't slow, quiet or discrete, I can vouch for that.

After having it for awhile, my brother finally got tired of it (he's notorious for that and I swear I'm not working on anything else he buys) so we came to an arrangement. I would sell the car for him, get back what he paid, and anything beyond that was mine. I also knew that he underpaid for the car (being it was procharged and that can of worms doesn't help the resell value) so I decided to keep the procharger for myself and return the car to stock form in order to increase the resell value. Hasn't sold yet, but hopefully soon.
Bone stock except a gauge pod with a couple Autometer gauges (fuel pressure and boost/vacuum). Windows are also tinted.
Bone stock, LT4 badges removed. Bought a tint kit for the exterior lights but haven't gotten around to putting those on yet.
Bone stock delco bose system. I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't suck, but I'm sure I could do better with quality aftermarket components if I were inclined.
Put brand new HD Bilsteins on it. It had the stock, soft Bilsteins which were both wore out, and way too soft. Once they settled in and got broke in a little, the HDs were perfect. The front leaf spring has been upgraded with an aftermarket unit. Unsure if the rear is stock or not. The car has also been lowered.
Wheel and Tire
Running early 00's f-body WS6 chrome, 17" 5 spokes. I don't hate them, but the only center caps available that I know will fit say WS6 on them, so we just don't have center caps on them. The car also came with the factory staggered wheels, and while they aren't perfect, would be excellent driver quality wheels. Has 275s all the way around. I had plans to upgrade wheels and tires and run 325s in the rear with Michelin Pilot Super Sports, but my brother recently decided that he wanted to sell the car, so that won't happen now.
