I just got a 1987 C4. It's in good shape totally stock with 87,000 miles on it. I know this year only has 240 horsepower. I'd like to pep it up a little bit & am asking for some advice on what to do & where to start. Thanks

I'm not sure about the 87 but I was always told headers and exhaust, to start there. Guess a lot depends on displacement. I'm sure others will help you out with this. Good luck in your project.

First thing i'd think about would be get the various components of the car in shape before adding any power to it. Things like get the brakes in shape, do the suspension bushings or consider something like the Banski suspension package. Once those things are in place, then maybe consider increasing the HP of the vehicle. My thoughts.
