Thanks for posting that nine! I was pretty good with the internet acronyms, but you answered quite a few of my car related ones.

Thanks again

I'm new to the site and really impressed with this forum. I have a 1997 C5 in which i will be taking the LS1 and putting it in a kit car i've been working on. I want to pump up the power to maybe 500 hp. Can anyone recommend a site or reputable place in the South East? What type of modification would you recommend? I want to drive this car mainly for the street and limited track use. Thanks! Freytag

The ZR-1 got its model designation from the "ZR-1'' option package, which added $27,016-$31,683 to the standard Corvette hardtop's list price -- making it the most expensive auto option in Chevy history.

I have added an Automotive Glossary to my website to make it easy for people to search the following:
  • General Automotive Terms
  • RPO Codes
  • OBDII codes

If you can't find what you're looking for, or you think theres something that should belong in the glossary, you can submit an entry, and I'll have it posted for you as soon as possible.
