Unless its really high priced NOS OEM or High priced aftermarket stuff its junk. Even SPEC. is questionable from many experiences I've read/heard about. McLeod is good but bring $$$$.
The lack of QUALITY replacement Opti-Sparks. Lots of cheap ones, FEW quality ones.
I've heard stories about new clutches flying apart because they are now made of some inferior ChinaMetal! You can't find a flywheel that really fits except the Fidenza (sp) aluminum one that I hear is great for performance but tough to drive on the street without stalling or bucking.
I'd like to see some headers that actually bolt on a 96 that didn't cost an arm & leg or you didn't have to beat all to hell and saw up a bunch of brackets to make fit.
I know they made a million Mustangs and only a few thousand Vettes, but you would have thought somebody would have stepped up for Chevy’s Flagship performer!
Serious, fun or just venting:
What items for your C4 have been impossible for you to find?
Ill start, I have an 87 convertible and 2 items elude me
1. Retrofit kit for hardtop conversion
2. A good condition 3rd brake light lens
What's your needle in the haystack (sort of speak)?
I retrofit a hardtop to the 87 I used to own. I did a writeup and it is in the stickies.
PM me and I will be glad to tell you how to do this.
You can find good used parts and great service from Jason at www.vette2vette.com
1993-96 horn switches from inside the steering wheel
Parts been discontinued, checked Chevy dealer, told me there isn't one in any dealer in the us. Even contacted delco to see if they had one laying around. No luck
Checked all the standard after markets vendors with no luck either
Had a corvette salvage tell me he had a good one but wanted 100 bucks for it simply because he knew I couldn't get it anywhere else... I replied with "where I come from, that's simple price gouging, he could keep it"
