nope it still has its stock bottom end as well. I blew a tranny once at the track after I added the procharger, blower cam,alky meth it. that was bound to happen sooner or later it needed upgraded anyways to handle the power. but that lasted me to 160,000 miles when it blew (tranny not engine)

Thanks I always wanted a Corvette. I had 2 classics, But once I bought the c5 and put 160,000 miles on it I figured I would never sell it. So instead I had fun with it started showing it at local car shows and adding little stuff when I could afford it. I started going to bigger shows with tuff competition and found out it was not that much fun anymore a lot of backstabbing going on. But I still won a few awards from time to time. I was at a Super Chevy Show and this year ProCharger used my car as a display vehicle. And asked if we wanted to race it in their ProCharger bracket series race. Well that started the change. From there we added a blower cam package, LS2 intake,alky meth kit,Kooks headers, Borla Xr_1 pipes. car stock was 315 rwhp procharger 422 rwhp after blower cam 525. I will get a new shot of my odometer today with the 240,000 miles on her. I am very proud of this car it sure was built chevy tuff. Its my rock :)
