Default C4 of the Year -- Performance Modifications

For Corvetteforum’s 2019 C4 Corvette of the Year competition we have some big changes in store to make the competition more inclusive and, we hope, more fun for site users.

The changes include opening the contest to site users across the globe, rather than limiting it to residents of the contiguous United States. Further, we’ll break the competition down into four categories:
  • Stock Corvettes
  • Corvettes with Appearance Modifications
  • Corvettes with Performance Modifications
  • Corvettes prepared primarily for track use

The reward in each of the categories is bragging rights and a designation under your user ID declaring your winning status.

This thread is for entries of Corvettes with Performance Modifications.

You can enter just one of the categories of competition and you do so by posting one photo of your C4 in the appropriate thread no later than 11:59 p.m. PDT, July 15. Moderators then will pick ten of their favorites as finalists and set up a poll to allow you to vote on which of those finalists is the C4 Corvette of the Year in each of the above-referenced categories. The judging, of course, is subjective and will be heavily influenced by the quality of the photographs submitted for the entries.

In subsequent months, we’ll feature other generations for Corvette of the Year with the winner in each of those generations competing for Corvetteforum Corvette of the Year.

The fine print: One entry per member. This contest is open to site users over the age of 18 who own the car they enter. Cars which have previously won are not eligible. Entry photos must have been shot by the Corvette's owner except in the track car category where the Corvette has been photographed on the track while the owner was driving it.

True C4 performance. The already awesome 205hp 1984 crossfire has been made even better. This beauty is equipped with a Dough Nash 4+3 and has been right hand drive converted for Australian roads.
Mods include:
Crane Cams Hydraulic Flat Tappet Z-256-2
Edelbrock Cylinder Heads Alloy E-Street ED5089
Comp Cams Roller Rockers High Energy Alloy 1.6 Ratio
Renegade Intake Manifold
Pacemaker Headers Primary Pipes 1 3/4 “ Collector 3"
DUI Distributor
Exhaust 2 1/4" Cat Delete
AIR Pump Delete
EGR Valve Delete
Innovate LC-2 WBO2 sensor
This won’t be the most powerful C4 but it is a very cool configuration.
