Joining the darkside?

Well ladies and gents after a lot of consideration and contemplation I think I have decided instead of putting ridiculous amounts of money to make this 3v perform the way I want it to, I'm going to find a junkyard 5.3, pull the heads and have them ported and polished, gets some bigger comp cams, and get a short runner intake on a good tune. Down the line I'll look into a turbo setup or beef it up with some spray. The cost to build this motor is just way to much and it would be ridiculously cheaper to build a 5.3 AND buy a good t56 to match it. The saving has already begun so wish me luck on my adventure!

5.4's are just as weak when it comes to the rods and everything. Idk what I'm doing yet tho . I just landed a great job making a lot more money than I was so I'm contemplating just trading it in and getting a Z06

Fixing the vette up will cost more than the 3v.

Go with the 5.3 option and drop it in your current car.

How nice of an interior do you want? I went the base C6 route but kind of regretted not going with a C5Z
