Item description for High-Performance C-5 Corvette Builder's Guide (S-A Design) by Walt Thurn...
The magnificent-looking C5 Corvette was a huge improvement over the previous Corvette, and offers a great platform for performance modifications. Almost 250,000 LS1 and LS6-powered C5s were sold between 1997 and 2004, and with buy-in prices dropping as a result of the introduction of the new C6, there has never been a better time to buy and modify a C5 Corvette. Author Walt Thurn shows you how to upgrade your Corvette's engine, from basic bolt-ons to serious engine modifications. There are also chapters on tweaking your suspension, drivetrain, brakes, and wheels and tires. This book features tables, charts, color pictures, and build sequences to explain how to correctly modify your C5 for drag racing, road racing, autocross, or simply to heads turn on cruise nights. Author Walt Thurn has been involved with Corvettes since 1963. He has covered Corvette racing and written many how-to articles on C3, C4, C5, and C6 Corvettes for VETTE, Corvette Fever, Corvette Quarterly, Corvette Enthusiast, and Corvette Magazine.com.
