    trust me m8 the the most cost effictive mod for your car would be nos.

    chips are only a few extra horses and if your car has one i bet its about 350 - 400 quid

    turbos are very expensive too fit and youll need two if its a v8

    i would get a nice axhaust and air filter though.

    It will take a lot more than NOS to get a corvette to do a 10 sec quarter mile

    Cam
    Pistons
    Heads
    Headers
    Exhaust
    Carb
    NOS
    Better diff gearing

    If its 85on then a blower (supercharger) is the best bet

    All = LOTS of cash !!! & probably still not a 10 sec quater !!

    When did NOX change to NOS I wonder? I musta missed a chapter. Anyway............... Nox Rox! (fast+furious speak guv!) You want a corvette to do a SUB 10 sec Qrt mile? Dream on! If you had ANY idea how quick an engine would have to be to touch those standards you wouldn't embarass yourself by asking such a foolish question. I assume you reckon BIG is best? yeah? I don't recall EVER seein a monster engine like that in ANY rally\hillclimb\motocross or any other recognised event, maybe you should wonder WHY? BIG may be beautiful, but it sure as fock ain't FAST. I'll give you a clue right? Power to weight ratio, work it out.
