So after doing a cost/benefit analysis of hp gained vs cost, I came up with a supercharger kit as the project to do. It would provide a big bump in hp and I wouldn't have to do anything else to the car. Just one project.
A short time later I decided to add a cam. It actually had a little better cost/hp ratio, and I "really needed" it for the s/c kit anyway...
A short while later I decided exhaust headers were needed too. And an intake. And with all that extra power I was going to need a bigger better radiator. And oil cooler.
And while I was going to be in there anyway, I should change the water pump, oil pump, timing chain, all hoses and belts, etc.
So the budget got stretched a little bit.
Most of the parts are here. Still waiting on the s/c kit. It is from a company called A&A and s/c kits for Corvettes is their specialty.
Going to tackle the job in phases:
Phase 1 - headers, and trans/diff bracing while the exhaust is off.
Phase 2 - cam, intake, misc parts.
Phase 3 - supercharger kit.
