DD beater c5

So I finally picked up a corvette. Its a 99 hatchback ls1 6 speed with magnetic ride control. Bought the car from a guy up in forest lake this past saturday. He had for 4 years and put about 20k miles on it. The car is not perfect and needs some work but runs and drives great. So far very happy with the car. Car has a cold air intake, 80 mm bbk throttle body, and exhaust with cats deleted. Car looks great from 20 feet away anything closer you can see rock chips in the paint.

Things to fix

Oil pressure sensor
Wheel speed sensor
Tire pressure sensors
Get ecu flashed for earlier fan turn on
Figure out why the abs and traction control shut off (guessing wheel speed sensor should fix this)
Paint front bumper and touch up paint chips
Replace brake fluid

No plan on performance mods as of right now. Probably won't do any as I plan on just driving and enjoying the car. Plan is to keep it for 2 years and upgrade to something new and faster. But I have been looking and pricing stuff out like heads, cam, super charger, turbo kits but I doubt I will do anything.
