    Lt1 Exhaust recommendations ?

    After driving my 1995 6 speed a few hundred miles, I've decided I want a little more bark to go along with the bite. I want a muffler (or chambered pipe) that lets me hear the LT1's music but doesn't resonate inside the car. I want a sound that is healthy but isn't obnoxious like Bubbas truck...

    I have been to 2 GM dealers in search of touch up paint for my Dark Red 1995 convertable. One dealer advised the paint is no longer available.:confused The other dealer brought out something that was obviously ancient. It had the consistency of cold syrup (after I brushed off like 5 layers...

    1995 6 speed Transmission Oil ?

    ok. I just got back from the GM dealer and purchased 4 quarts of what I "think" is supposed to go in the transmission of my 1995 6 speed. The guy that sold it to me wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. He made me very nervous. In the end we had like 5 differerent bottles of oil on the...

    Question: C4 Rear End Types ?

    In the past I've read about 2 different C-4 rear differential carriers in the C4 corvette. The 6 speed seems to have a more heavy duty rearend. A Dana 66 ? I think. ;shrug I'm familiar with the 10 bolt and 12 bolt Chevy as well as the 8 inch 8.8 and 9 inch Ford rearend designs, as well as the...

    I have removed the interior of my 1995 convertable for refurbishing and floor repair. I have noticed VERY little insulation exist under the carpet. I understand that GM was trying to save weight but Im willing to add a pound or two. Are the sound deadener kits I see for sale worth the money ...

    Help! Gear shift knob removal.

    I'm stripping the interior on my 1995 Convertable and am down to the console part. How does the six speed gear shift knob come off ? Is it pressed on or does it screw off ? It's REALLY on there tight and I don't want to break it. I'm going to have to exert a LOT of force either way. .

    I have noticed when turning the lights off on my 1995 Convertable, the right hand headlight continues to " bounce " after it is all the way down. It seems as if the motor is still trying to pull the headlight down even after it's at rest. It bounces 4 times then stops. Everytime. I have...
