Factory intercooler Z06 2016 v 2017

I have seen adds for the taller "lid" and the needed matching under-hood pad that came on the 2017 Z06 to 2019. I read that the cooling efficiency was improved by 50%. This didn't make sense to me...

LS1 - Additional Horsepower

I currently own a C7 Z06 and am not looking for additional power! My question is about my wife's 2002 "standard" Vette with 2:73 (I believe) gears and an automatic. I've read that there are "kits"...

Re: C5 Key Fob Quit

I ended up calling a local dealer (that sold me my C6 Z06) and he had the #1 Key Fob in stock. They programed the new fob and I was on my way in less than one hour. Yes my pocketbook was a bit...

C5 Key Fob Quit

The #1 Key Fob on my wife's 2002 C5 finally gave up the ghost. Tried a new battery and no luck. If I can get my hands on a functioning used fob what then? Do I take the car to the dealer to have the...

Re: New Shock valving

I read about this in one of the many magazines I read. My dealer had not heard of the update but looked into it when I was there for an oil change. It turned out that my 2016 Z06 had the latest...

Re: Curb Weight

Jub Jub, by performance I mean much more than hauling in a straight line. I was thinking of cornering and braking too. It's easy to turn up the wick on the current supercharged Vettes. I'm thinking...

Re: Default Can a stock z07 c7 2lt automatic hit 200 mph without the z07 package?

If my 2008 Z06 could hit 198 with 505 horsepower I don't see why my 2016 Z06 with stage 1 areo wouldn't hit 200+. Just not with me in it!

Curb Weight

The story goes something like (back in around 2008) what could the Corvette look like if we turned it into a 100-120k car? And in 2009 the ZR1 was born. My question is, What if we could spend an...

Re: Ron Fellows Corvette School

My experience mirrored yours in every way (chjw). Two days is not enough to extract the awesome performance from the new C7 Z06...but it's a good start! If you are on the fence, attend! It will be...

Re: Top Speed and 0-60 of Stingray,Ray z51, GS and z06 auto?

Most tests I read have top speed at about 180 - 185. The Z06 with the Stage Three aero package was drag limited at 185. JMO but a Z06 with the Stage One aero (like the Z51) should be faster...maybe...

Re: Need stereo recommendations

I replaced the radio in my wife's 2002. It has Bluetooth, XM, aux port, HD radio, Pandora, Heart, pretty much everything. Works with the Bose amps and speakers. Not sure if I can mention brands and...

Re: Alignment on GS & Z06

IM4A2Z

My Z06 has the Pilot Sport tires. It does not have the Z07 option. I will probably have my alignment checked and the Camber backed off a bit.

Re: Test drove Stingray then Z. Z too much to handle for me

You might want to try a GrandSport. Turning a Z06 to Track Mode on the street is not recommended (stated in the manual, agreed by instructors at Spring Mountain, and by owners). Like jub jub, I like...

Re: Alignment on GS & Z06

Re: 2017-18 z06 auto overheating issues are completely gone or still haunting owners?

I think there could be a happy medium on the cooling issue. At Spring Mountain I drove as hard as I could (automatic car - Z07- 4 laps) and on a 65+ day the oil and water temps were around 240. The...

Re: Automatic Cylinder dropping

I tried the Eco mode ("E" on the dial) for the first time. You have to be on the level as the slightest hill will send the car back into V8 mode. As with a few others above I see ZERO reason to mess...

Re: Z06 Binding or Rubbing Problems

I try not to turn to sharp until I get some heat into the tires. That helps. The feel and sound kind of remind me of the Detroit Locker in my 66 GT-350!

Upgrade to 2017 Supercharger Lid and Underhood Insulation

Have any 2015-16 Z06 owners upgraded their supercharger lids to the 2017 version? It is claimed to be a power upgrade. Curious as to whether or not you noticed a difference.

Re: Which Z06 2008 and 2011.

An advantage the 2011 has over the 2008 is that they went (2009 on) to a 10 quart oil sump/tank up from 8 quarts in the 2006-08. It was my understanding that the 8 quart tank was not enough capacity...
