In my case with my 1996 with Truk-Lite LED headlights, turning on the fog lights would also activate the high beams. Clicking the turn signal stalk would not produce low beams if the fogs were on,...

In your first post you say the hood release in the drivers compartment is gone. I'd give you better than even odds that it's actually there, someone just put the underdash hush panel on wrong and...

I attempted to get some pictures, kind of hard to do with the ASR module mounted right over the top of them. My LT4 actually has three of those tubular braces. One mounts pretty much vertically...

That has to be an error in the manual. My LT4 would definitely rev to redline when it was stock.

One thing to consider since you have a convertible is the under-car X Brace (assuming you still have it). It's my understanding that it's nearly impossible to do long tubes with cats and retain that...

Most of the differences are internal and not visible. The stuff that is visible is generally pretty easy to replicate on an LT1 so it's no guarantee to do a visual inspection.

Here's a good...

Are you running LED headlights? Those can cause an issue where if you turn on the fog lights it will also activate the high beams and will not switch to low beams at all. If this actually is your...

it's all about what you like but but personally I think that looks fantastic. Particularly with the blacked out halo and top.

The general consensus is that shorty headers are not worth the time and effort, the stock LT1 exhaust is really pretty efficient. I'm guessing since you don't have cats now that you're in an area...

Well, as I said I just used the ones that came with the AIP unit and they're working fine. I'm sure there are differences in materials, I've heard good things about the MSD parts but don't have...

Another vote for the 96. Aside from the better LT4 engine, think about the Optispark. The 94 still has the old non-vented Opti which is more susceptible to failure, and it's not cheap or easy to...

Those must be some really light wheels, they let you drive upside down! :)

I've always liked those wheels on a C4 and I think they go really well with the silver.

I've never done it myself but I think the bulbs actually come out the back. Batee sells a kit to replace all the DIC bulbs and all but two of them are mounted in the sockets that twist out of the...

I did their single-row direct-fit model on my 96 LT4. Dropped right in, I don't think I even had to trim the foam rubber bits. They claim it has 50% more cooling capacity than the stock unit,...

Yes, that would be the blend door. Your profile says you have a 1980 and a 2011 so I'm guessing this is a new-to-you car. Not sure what year this one is but there was a good writeup recently...

I actually asked the guy at the radiator repair shop if repairing the OE was feasible, thinking maybe I'd do that to have a known good spare in case of trouble. He said the chance of even being...

As far as parts, no matter which one you get you'll probably find the tubes aren't bent correctly. There was someone who posted recently that they put one in and had to force the tubes to get them...

And that's what it's all about in my opinion. You can't beat the C4 for sheer bang-for-the-buck.

I tend to agree with you on the opti, I think they really get more of a bum rap than they...

I don't have dyno numbers but I'd guess by seat of the pants feel that I maybe picked up 20 hp over the stock LT4. The hotcam is about as radical as you can get while still retaining the stock...

Correct, the 1996 hubs are .100" shorter to compensate for the reluctor ring.
