Well I bought this car 4-5 months ago and it was pretty modded then, but I can't leave anything alone so I changed a few things. I went with a different intake system, added Pfadt Racing 16 way adjustable coilovers, Iforged 19x10, 20x11 Aero II wheels custom made to house C6 Z06 brakes(which I added as well with stainless steel lines), rear polished "Corvette" lettering, some frame savers and rocker rails, a black catch can, and HID's. I also added 400 miles to the odometer :)
Here are before pics when I purchased the car:




Now here are the afters:









Future plans are undecided, I'm pretty happy with the car as it is now performance wise and looks wise. Has heads/cam/ported intake manifold and throttle body, pulley, hardened pushrods, dual valve springs, ported oil pump, Long tube headers, running catless, H pipe connecting to the stock Titanium rear exhaust section for noise/weight reduction,3.73 gears, Cartek stage 7 clutch, e.t.c.
Props to Brian(chevyeater for making this possible)

Beautiful car; the wheels and brakes (especially) look great! I don't see enough millenium yellow z06s. I can't say I'm a fan of the fuel rail covers, but thats it. The only thing I would add is a painted lower-rear bumper? What head/cam combo are you running? Also did I miss it, or are you running stock exhaust?

Thanks! The specs on the cam have escaped my mind, I have it written down somewhere. The heads are stock ported/polished heads. The exhaust rear muffler sections are the stock titaniums. Anything aftermarket adds weight and unnecessary noise. Car is catless with long tubes and a bigger H pipe. I want to see one of those rear black lower pieces in person before I give it a shot, but I might do something like that in the future.

Are those stock brakes or are they C6 Z06 brakes?
C6 Z06 brakes

Thank you!

If you get them make sure to pay extra to get the Aero II's so you get a much larger lip front/back and specify whether or not a big brake upgrade is one of your future planned mods as these wheels in Aero or Aero II would not fit over these brakes.

I like that a lot. The modifications are very tasteful and add to the car. Well done.

The car looks incredible, but be careful with those I-forged rims... I had a set that lasted about three weeks before they were bent to hell. If you have good roads where you live you should be fine. I never understood why they went with a forged center and a cast barrel.

VERY nice work and very tasteful mods. It's rare to see a lowered Vette. They look so bad ass when dropped properly, you wonder why more owners don't do it.

that looks awesome. The c6 z brakes look perfect as do the wheels. A perfect example of a tastefully modded c5 z.
