New Vette Owner!!! 85 C4, Have Questions!
Hey fellow Corvette owners (that feels pretty good to say). I've always been a huge Vette fan and finally got the opportunity to purchase one yesterday. She's a fixer upper but I wouldn't have it any other way!
My questions are mostly pertaining to the engine rebuild I have in front of me:
-I want a good mild cam. Any suggestions? I was eyeing the Comp 12-364-4 "XFI" cam. Thoughts?
-How beneficial would it be to upgrade to aluminum heads? I found a pair of 58cc recently machined heads locally that I can get for a pretty good price from a guy. Should I go for it or would the stock cast iron heads be fine after a trip to the machine shop?
-Intake manifold...upgrade or port the stock one?
-Do I need to upgrade the stock fuel injectors? If so, need suggestions I have no clue what lbs/hr and PSI would be needed.
-With the above mentioned mods, do I have to do anything to the CPU? If so, how complicated is that process? I've heard the CPU and intake are kind of restrictive on this model year so I want to make sure I'm checking all of the right boxes to optimize my mods.
My goal is to get it to about 300-325 hp (not at rear wheel) so nothing too extreme. I'll have all of the necessary bolt-ons to help me get there (headers, exhaust system, intake). Just need some guidance on some of the internals. Thanks!
