Yup, just curious if 69MyWay had been considering any specific parts since he's trying to keep it on a DIY budget. Figured there'd be some good grabs on used or older style heads that could be picked up for a good deal. Just curious if he'd been looking around since he'll definitely need to do it for a top end build.
Nope, no plans for head/cam - none at all. That just brings a whole world of other headaches that are not worth the time and trouble for a car my wife is using.
The C4 is a fine machine, but due to the lack up higher RPM thrill...is feels well past its prime.
With the values of the cars in the tank - it is hard to justify spending any real coin on them as well unless it is just a labor of love. So, this is all about getting that upper RPM thrill (especially because this is a stick shift car) without killing the bank or making the car problematic with tuning/cam/head...vacuum...idle...etc.etc. issues that ALWAYS follow. Been there done that many times.
My last C4 we did for the magazine with the crate LS2 was PERFECT - however, if I were to duplicate that car today - just the MOTOR would cost more than the car - and that won't suit where I want to go with this.
