hey, just bought a 1999 FRR with 18k on it. Great shape and it runs perfect. I was in however an 02, Z06 and the power is awesome. Where do I start with making my car have the same power. Please give me some ideas as I don't want a turbo, vortech, etc.
Thanks..

Affectionally the '99 were called FRC's for Fixed Roof Coupe. There are a few expensive ways to get the Z power. Some are not practical. Get a new (or used) one. NOT PRACTICAL. Change the head/cam/intake off the Z. feasible if you can find a Z owner that is upgrading. Or, if you are going to the trouble of swapping the H/C/I route get on with more potential than the Z and instead of goign from 345hp to 405 hp, you can go from 345 to 445+. Add some long tube headers and a cat-back and a tune and you will really wake that monster up

:agree:

Unfortunately, short of taking The Torch's suggestions, the only way to get Z06 power is to get a Z06.;)
