What is the best game plan to get the most hp out of this car? It has 60,000 miles, should I rebuild the engine first? I dont want it to become a money pit but my goal is to at least keep up with my friends viper. Is that possible out of this vette?

You will surely be able to beat a Viper if money is no object. There are motors you can buy that will make the Viper look sick. Then you will need the drivetrain to handle the motor.
What is your budget?? If you plan on doing this with a few thousand better park it.
