64 is done, shit. 63 is our only hope.

Funny to hear Ford cry on the radio that we have too much power when ACO basically gave them the race a couple years ago.

Necessary, no. Preferred, at least using a finishing polish, yes.

I have tried Blackfire, Kamikazi Miyabi and Kamikazi ISM coat.

As far as ease, both the Miyabi and BF are just dirt simple. Wipe on in the cross-hatch pattern, wait a minute or so, and wipe off...

To improve your current braking without upgrading to C5 or later, then best bet is just the right pads and new rotors, maybe the DRM Brake bias spring, and new fluid and the SS lines.

You would need a similar size/duration to the 88, but it needs to be hydraulic flat tappet instead of a roller cam he can use.

Unless you want to get a kit and convert the 85 to a roller setup.

Most 96s are actually made in 95, when it was actually formed was 95, the rocker is still for a 96. It is 1.6, you have nothing to worry about.

Yes it gets hot in a C4, top on or off, and is especially so when the AC isnt working. Theres not much material between you and the engine and tranny.

A lot will fit the 5 lug hub, not all of it will fit flush with the body.

56mm offset is what youre looking for on a 9.5" wide wheel. If its within a few mm of that, youre fine. 50mm on an 11"...

I would go with siamesed AS&M runners if at all possible, then attack the base manifold and try to match the plenum to the runner inlets. Theres not much meat on the stock runners

I'd talk to the painter about curing times, typically not required these days, but I'd ask the question anyway.

A month would be a minimum wait for me either way.

On early C4s, the main cat is actually a cat. 84-85 have only the one, since the two precats were introduced in 86. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

I would be happy if GM would allow other corvettes to run in GTD, so I'd have something to pull for in the class. Surely they could make money selling a de-tuned older C7R to the public for racing...

I love the Miyabi the most because I like the pure reflectivity of it. Blackfire is probably even easier to apply but not as...

If you arent making modifications to increase the air into or out of the engine, you will not get gains from a chip retune. Tell us what youre doing there, otherwise youre wasting time & money.
