This is a little over $500 but you'll be happy with the results until you can get more involved than bolt ons. If you want sources for these parts e-mail me. Don't forget a good set of ignition wires, plugs, wires & cap & rotor.
Basically you cut the front of the lid off so that it exposes the air filter. Leave just a border around the edges to keep the air filter firmly in place, but remove the face of the lid. [img]http]//www.corvetteforum.cc/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

These mods should net you about 30 HP or so, enough to feel nicely and keep you busy for a while.
Later whan you have $500-$1000 have a custom 2 1/2" front Y-pipe made up, install a Random Tech cat, install muffler elims or a TPIS Flow Master cat-back. These will get you another 30 HP or so.
If you lose the spare/jack/etc and carry a puncutre repair kit and cell phone you will be about 50 lbs lighter (similar to 5HP). Cruise with about 1/3-2/3 tank of fuel and you will be 70lbs lighter than a full tank (similar to 8HP).
