I've got a 99 C5 Vette M6 and living in Paris,France. (bought it last mouth)
There's not many vettes here (I see another vette maybe one in 3 mounths).

I've just installed Borla Stingers.
here is the video (before/after) : http://www.pougnon.com/vette.wmv (***UPDATE WRONG LINK***)

Here are my plans :

VARARAM
LS6 Intake
LGM HEADERS
X PIPE

Is it a good choise before serious mods (ie cam/head) ?
How many more hp put in the ground w/ this set up? (I know it's a typical question, sorry about that)


Next question : after this setup , I know I need to tune my car.
But there's no tuners in France for Vette.
Are mail tuning (I send my pcm) a got solution?
what is the best mail tuner around?
Or should I go with a hand programmer?

Thanx for your answers

Your link does not work!

Yo may need to pop over via the Euro-link and see some tuners in England! It'd probably be worth it as u'd get a proper tune with someone actually being there with the car as oppose to mail order (no disrespect to the mail order tuners). Just My 2 Cents (Or 1.13 pence) :laughing:

Hey Brice, 1st the LGM headers come with an x-pipe. Second, go with the EFIlive and tune it yourself, lots of support from the efilive guys. Hand held tuners are not that great ( I know this from experience).
You can expect about 30-40 hp at the wheel with that setup and it is a great start to a H/C package.
As for mail tuners, you can contact LGM and buy a new PCM with the program already installed on it and just replace your PCM with the new one.

Thanx for your answers


the vararam should be packaged in a big box, shipping cost are $225 to France (arggg)...
($400 for the borla)

So Plan B : smaller intake (for shipping). I've read good thing about the halltech stringer intake, easier to install and great gain.


I think shipping should be about $70-80. Is it worth it?

(P.S : damn corvetteC5.com doesn't ship it to France)
