    Have exhausts sticking out the sides of the hood, that would look sick especially if it spits flames!

    GREY WITH ORANGE LIVERY, ORANGE RIMS, AND AN MASSIVE ORANGE WING ON THE BACK!!! that's what I'm going to do to my BR-Z when i get the cash. Orange and flat grey or grey and hi-viz yellow-green bits all over are the options. can't decide yet.

    As soon as Matt started talking about the condenser I lost my shit. I'm an HVAC service tech and my first impulse was to do an in-depth explanation of the refrigeration cycle. Then, I remembered, that doesn't matter. This is a great video! who cares!

    Also, please SUPERCHARGE THAT B****!!!

    If I had a 90s ZR1 Corvette I'd sell it and get a newer Corvette because the old C4s don't fit my tall butt (6'4" person here) my dad had an 85 C4 Corvette and my knees ate dash and head hit the roof.

    I was around when he ordered this car. Special order, he ordered this car before production. He had the first ZR1 in town. I bought a 90 chevy Silverado from the same dealership. Just cant think of the dealerships name off hand. Lone star or buckalew chevy.

    keep the engine, keep it natural aspirated, just update things, different cams, make it like a period mid 90s badarse vette... if you want to make a crazy race car use a base vette not a classic zr1

    Matt, I have a 1993 Corvette that I've been working on and autocrossing. You should definitely take a look at the Ridetech Coilover package for the C4 Corvettes! It only just came out in ~November, but looks like a much more promising package than other coilover systems. I just bought and installed the Ridetech HQ single adjustable shocks on my C4 and so far I'm loving them.

    Restore it to showroom condition. Anything else is heresy.

  • sasuke2483692
    sasuke2483692 Month ago

    I'd say restore it! It's already a great car. Upgrade suspension components and put some new tires on it and it'll be golden! No sense in going over the top. Resale value will be trash if you make it FUBAR.

    Set alarm tube headers set a nice lopy cams. Some nice bc Coilovers Maybe some wider wheels in the rear. If the block can take it. Maybe her supercharger on it. Sleeve the cylinders possibly bore it out. Nice sticky tires on a set of rims for tue track. And maybe a twin disc clutch
