Question Vehicle (Corvette) Performance Help

I have a 2003 Corvette new that I want to modify a bit. Has anyone put exhausts, intake, etc. on these? I had Tri-Flo on my last C-4 but don't know on this C-5. I see Procharger vs Vortec....help! Also, the reason I posted here is that I think people are more honest and knowlegable. Any info is appreciated!

Thanks

Go to www.corvetteforum.com, C-5 section. You'll find lots of info there. I live in C-2, say hi sometime.

The motor is an LS-1.

Corvette Forum is a good idea-I'll check it out. Doug Rippie and Lingenfelter both offer Tri Flo, Borla, Corsa. I guess I could call and ask which they prefer...

Don't mess around with mail order stuff. You will be disappointed for the most part. If you want reliable go fast (real fast) call Lingenfelter Performance. Period.

Check the corvetteforum. You should find all you need there. My brother has a 1997 C-5 which I get to drive when he needs to borrow my truck. Mods include Quick Time Performance exhaust cutouts which basically open the exhaust wide open or close it so it sounds stock at the flip of a switch. He lowered it a couple of inches which makes the car look very tough but it does affect the ride and clearance is sometimes a problem. He just ordered Nitrous Express 150 shot wet system. I keep telling him he's going to blow the motor but he just says then he will have an excuse (wife) to build it up. Anyway enjoy they are really nice cars and with the supercharger and exhaust it will be one sweet ride.
