Tic tic boom not at all . For the most part the cars that go boom are a result of abuse from the owner . You can do alot performance work to a vette and not hurt anything so long as you your not bouncing the rev limiter at every stop light or doing 6500 rpm drop launches .
I would forsure say tinker .......most people that I have come in contact with and have done work for are always looking to do a little more ,
after all it is for alot of us a hobby . There are a whole wack of tasteful cosmetic and performance mods you can do . Enjoy your vette
