Unfortunately, the value of a car cannot be determined accurately without a visual inspection at the minimum.

I generally discourage buying a project car. You will usually spend more on a project car than buying one that has already been restored.

If you want more horsepower I recommend long tube headers. After market mufflers affect mostly sound and appearance.

We prefer the Vararam air intake system. This system pulls fresh air from the grille area. This has a ram air effect.

A gear swap makes the biggest difference in acceleration. If you have a C5 automatic with a 2.72 axle ratio and swap to a 3.73 ratio you could reduce a 1/4-mile multiplied by as much as a full second.

Older Corvettes have a tendency to overheat. If your radiator is a brass/copper radiator then you should switch to an aluminum radiator. Aluminum radiators are much more efficient and will usually drop engine temperatures considerably.
