If you dont mind me asking how much did the head swap improve the performance of the motor. Did you do the cam too? i have a 98 coupe with 38,000 miles on it and i was thinking about doing the head swap and ls6 intake but i really didnt want to go into doing a cam swap. Then you get into having to do a converter swap....... just wondering if doing the heads and intake was worth doing. i have the 3.42 rear too. Thanks for your time bud and good luck with your sale. Thats a beautiful 98!!

Not the old bf but I have driven the car and from what I have experienced this car is quite a bit quicker than my bone stock '01 (not that Shar ever tested that)....no measurable cam lope, so I would say no on that. Hope this helps

Surprised you are letting the ole girl go Shar.

I am the previous (2nd) owner of this car. It was an excellent car for me. I would assume Shar would say the same. Was sold with@45k mi. on it,and haven't seen it since except photos.

I did or had most mechanical work you see done to the car from bone stock. I know Shar has every receipt I had for it,plus hers no doubt. Shar has changed the intake from the vararam which I had on it. But I will say this, with that intake it was just as quick as any early stock c-6and pretty close to c5 Z06 performance through an automatic.

337rwhp 342tq through that gearing was pretty darn nice. The baseline before upgrades was 304 rwhp for comparison.
Car still has baby ls1 cam and stock torque convertor to my knowledge. I doubt Shar ever stepped on the gas much

I owned the car for @ 2 years before the c6 came out,and was tired of being underpowered at meets. Mission accomplished for that time WITH reliability and legality in Ca,which was the goal.

The only reason it was ever sold in the first place was wife's medical issues. The car HAD to go. Wish I could buy it back actually,but that won't happen right now. I do miss it though,you will too Shar.

GLWS!

Oh,and btw,this car sounds friggin' awesome!

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the post. I had fun while I had it for 2 1/2 years, things come and things go..... Other priorities in my life right now. Going to buy a house for my daughter....

Hope all is well with your wife. I will let you know when I sell it. Maybe it will make its way back down to your area and will you be able to see it.

Please let me know if you know of anyone that would be interested in it.

Stay safe and have fun!!

Shar...

Not sure on backspacing. Contact John there if you need that info.

It is the standard backspacing he uses for the c-5
