Welcome! Nice to see a Vette owner on the forums. While you may not be able to make the Z a speed demon with performance mods, you can make it handle like a dream on the twisties with a full suspension overhaul. I also own a Mustang I4 turbo. While it may not be a V8 monster, it still has over 300 HP and is plenty fun to drive on weekends.
