I just hope you didn't do anything that's not reversable.
I too have an '84 and all my mods are staying within the, "I can bolt it on" back stock range. Including keeping/rebuilding the orig. #'s matching 700R4 trans (that I just replaced with a super hard hitter from Mad Dog Lou, out of Tarpon Springs, Fla.).
Just keep in mind that the '84 is the first production year for the C-4, and even though it came with the down in HP Crossfire engine, that's part of the uniqueness of it. It's also the only C-4 with that intake configuration......for better, or for worse......lol!
I found that with a few tweaks here and there, plus custom/Flowmaster exhaust, I'm putting out 288 HP on the dyno, so I won't complain too loudly!
Save the wave!

I wouldnt worry about a 84 ever being a collectors edition(unless its all origional with little to no miles!). 1984's were the 2nd highest production Corvette ever made!:surprised They made 51,547 of them!:surprised That is why a 1984 is the perfect car to mod!:thumbsup:

Welllll..........y'all go ahead and do the mods to your 84's and do LOTS of 'em.......lol.............maybe it'll eventually make my stocker more valuable.
I guess it's just a personal preference I have, that a car that's first or last in a production run has more chance of maintaining any value over a middle year car. I guess that's why I've kept my 83 280ZX 2+2 Turbo car. Last year for the 280 and all.
Oh well, the main thing is to enjoy!
