You don't need to do anything but drive it. :excited:

Oh, I forgot. Change the transmission fluid and spark plugs at 100K.

I saw articles on water pumps and AC compressor replacement so I wondered if they were a 100 k mile thing or just go like anything else the question being not if but when? Thanks all!

No. The only thing you change at 100K are the spark plugs and transmission fluid and filter. The water pump and AC compressor are a fix ONLY if it is broke thing.

woa. If you are near 100k on the odometer than you are dangerously overdue for a blower. All these years and miles have past by and all the power levels of everything else rolling off the lot have steadily increased all this time. To the point of now you are like that one guy still using windows xp. Well don't fret. With this kit right here:

Your 100k car can maintain current day corvette power levels for the next 100k.:D

Thanks for all the input and the supercharger suggestion. We made the 1600+ miles with no problems. Averaged right at 27 mpg with the performance axle ratio. These roads are terrible which the Michelin Pilot Sports magnify. I think it is time to check their balance also. Any tire suggestions? Always enjoy the gas station conversations that happen, people saying nice Vette, love that color, and etc. Had a kid in a Dodge diesel pickup try to mess with me on I-29 just north of Sioux City. He thought he was cool. I just let him think that. Thanks again.

Junkman cool video. My youngest son and I went around the Indianapolis 500 track in my 94 triple black Corvette during the NCC convention around 2002 or so. We were limited to parade speed though.

ya that price is why I still don't have one. But if you can afford it, There are no regrets. I mean boost before 3k rpm just has a certain feel to it.

That's why I have never went to Indianapolis. If I can't "get some", it ain't worth my time. Here's a night run:

100k? You're just getting going. Spoke to some folks at the Tonowanda Engine Assembly Plant when I toured there...the expected service life of your motor is 300k miles. Take care of it. Do general maintenance and you'll be good to go.
