  • Your first MOD?

    Beside getting a tint or some cosmetic mod, what would your first MOD on the list?

    Mine would be a less restricted Exhaust to open her up.

    Thats what I'm talking about - cut some holes through the rear deck and have some chromed boat pipes firing straight out the back.

      Driver mod. Back to Spring Mountain for some track time with a mid engine. Enjoyed the C7 Z06 2 day out there and will return to get this driver more acclimated to this configuration.

        I don't know if these count as mods.

        One, plug in a DFM suppression range device in the OBD2, and second, hard wire the most current Valentine One radar/laser detector.

            I've been wondering about the viability of radar detectors these days, given that most modern vehicles emit radio signals (adaptive cruise control, anti-collision systems, blind spot monitoring systems, etc.) in the same frequency bands as radar guns and false signals are so common... Detectors seem to be going off constantly with false alarms due to surrounding vehicle radar systems...

            My first mods will be:
            • Splash guards
            • Radar Detector (maybe)
            • Ceramic coat the wheels
            • Catch Can

              Lowering and getting an alignment. Clear film after paint cleaning the first week of ownership. Since it’s under warranty and new I will keep it as is other than cosmetics.

                First thing I would get would be clear protective film on at least the front end and most likely on the side air intakes.

                  When I had mine done, it was done by Mac Mulkin's contractor, even before i took delivery. I figured if I used their contractor, mine would not be the first C7 he ever did.

                    I'm really not into the 'after market' stuff. I was into 'personalization' back when I was a kid but now I leave the designing and engineering up to the professionals at GM. My philosophy for the past couple of decades had been, order it the way you want it and just drive and enjoy it....

                    I guess I've seen too many guys spend big bucks of 'personalizing' their cars and then taking a major hit when they trade / sell it.

                      If you do factory order, I agree 100%. It's too nice of a car for going crazy with some of the after market stuff, but little touches to make it your own should not detract from the value for a trade. Anyone buying used can and should make changes to make it as if they had done factory order. I personally enjoy the negotiations process with the sales person on a lot vehicle and then make the changes I would have spec'd on a factory order. The thing to remember is that you bought it to enjoy so make it your own. It's gonna depreciate anyway but if you're smart, don't go crazy that it would further reduce the value by your pink flamingos painted on the side doors.

                        Best mod...driver skill...lol

                        sorry but these cars are so amazing out of the factory....

                        what Ive learned over the years and try and my best to remember the one crucial missing link........hehhe is my need to increase my driver skill level as being the most effective mod ...not to mention the most fun..

                        i say driver events amd experiences ...thats the smartest mod...

                        those are the most lasting and cherished mods.

                        from a material standpoint and not to be a smart @$$...sorry guys....i think a aftermarket replacement small lip spoiler incase that travesty of a rear wing we have seen on some of the camouflaged z51 models actually makes it to production ...

                        hopefully the horrible melted huge wing thing we saw on a few of the prototypes are not forced upon us...but i think z51 fe4 is a key option for me....but the huge melted wing thing if a reality would have to be replaced rather quickly...

                        but I dont think gm will make the wing that horrible looking ....so then it would be no mods for me for at least the first year?

                        over the years Ive found staying close to stock is not such a terrible thing as far as the cars go...

                        since John is travelling 2500 miles to bowling green today....I think I can get away with this ......

                        meanwhile modifying bolt ons for our ladies is never a bad idea.......(just kidding)

                          Agreed. The stock C8's limits will be far beyond my abilities to exploit as a driver. For the majority of C8 buyers HPDE is the mod the C8 will need most.

                            Alignment in my shop off of the cars centerline. Corner weights. This will correct factory alignment “tolerance” values. Then we have a base line to start from. GM engineers are pretty sharp, and we expect the car will have all the right stuff. Just maybe a few tricks we can add, cost no object.
                            Anyway, base line it and go from there. Make it handle with perfect balance and have adjustability for various conditions, then and only then, would we consider more horsepower.
