Power from a 77-79 small block Corvette?
I'm getting closer to finding my project/weekend car. It looks like there is a fair amount of later C3 corvettes (1977-1979) in the paper so before I actually buy one, I wanna know if I can get affordable performance to back up the Corvette name. The 350ci engines those years came with a measily 190hp and 220hp. I'm obviously gonna need more power than that. The car is gonna cost about 5 grand. I'd like to know what, where and how much some performance parts will be. I'm not sure exactly where to start, but I have an idea of starting with, performance: camshafts, transmission (racing/street application), headers, rear end, pistons, heads, etc. Plus eventually I would like to put on a supercharger, but I'm not sure if I should put one on right away. Can I get performance more quicker from rebuilding the engine or putting on a supercharger. I'm somewhat confused because I know I can do both, I'm just not sure of what order. Please let me know any and all information on the subject if you have any knowledge on it. Thanks a million.
