T5 in a C900 IS a BIG deal!
The consistency and off boost performance makes the car a joy to drive everyday. I'd do it again in a NY minute, but I believe my 93 will be my last gasser

What is a "big deal"?

In the absence of a consensus definition of that term, I believe asking those who have made the swap if they would do it again would be a more meaningful question.

Of course there is the risk of confirmation bias where people are hesitant to admit a mistake. I'd do it again. Anyone else?

So i need some TSL opinions

I have a friend in cali who runs pierce automotive , he has a c900 vert with a 9000 Non turbo intake coming out of the hood,

If i did it, know that i have a T5 head, with the one year only (1994) non turbo manifold, so i would pick up some real power in the process too, Big question is, do i want to cut my hood?

looks like this

The vast majority of the power gains would be from the T5 head. Cool factor is there, but having to explain to everyone that its not a supercharger would be annoying. You should probably just modify an intake manifold to have the TB in the middle instead of the very end.

There were hundreds of pictures in this thread but over the years got lost when hosting websites changed or were taken down.

Just starting out on this journey into my 99. Very interesting read but none of the pics are showing at the begining of the thread. Why cant i see them?
Because the post is 13 years old and the image host likely doesnt exist anymore.
