Hey guys, over the next fall/winter I'm going to finally take the jump and beast out my 2008 GT (auto). I've already done all the standard first mods such as a SCT tuner with JLT CAI, MBRP axlebacks and a tint job but I want more power
The goal is to make a car that will destroy my fathers 2006 corvette
yet still be decent fuel wise as the car is my DD.
I've priced out a N/A build which will include: VSR Comp Cams Stage 2, new heads (Either FR or mill mine out) FR Throttle Body, LT Headers (BBK with Cats), Intake Manifold and a Torque Converter. This will come to somewhere around $5000 plus the install.
This route seems overall more expensive then just slapping on a S/C such as a Vortech or a Paxton but also seems more practical fuel wise to my knowledge (remember my DD car). However a S/C is better bang for the buck and I don't want to waste money.
Furthermore, I really want to get gears. The 4:10's seem to be the best for Auto Trans
but I'm concerned it will be too much with new mods and further destroy what little fuel economy I will have left.
Any feedback on which route I should take would be VERY helpful as I'm totally dead locked in which to do. Thanks AFM!
