  • So WHAT is the one item.......

    What's the ONE carry over part from the C7 that is used on the C8? I've seen it mentioned that there is only 1 item, but never heard anyone mention WHAT that item is. Just curious.

    I had a chance to ask Tadge this question at the NCM recently, and he informed me that the part was the muffler bearing.

      Thanks Mobius; I had heard earlier, obviously now erroneously, that it was the door latch mounted onto the back edge of the door.

        Thanks for that info John, as I too have been wondering about which part was retained.

          I am going with the muffler bearing information that Mobius got when he was talking to Tadge at NCM.

              Well, Tadge is known for his sense of humor, but I don't think he would kid about a part as critical as the muffler bearing...

                    OK, so back to what's the one REAL part retained from the C7? Perhaps the door latch that John mentioned ???

                      Yep, when it comes to Corvette knowledge, I'll put my money on John every time.

                      Plus, in the rare instance he doesn't know the answer, he'll know who to ask.

                          I heard it was the high pressure blinker fluid valve.

                          It was on the internet so it must be true!

                              I can’t believe none of you know that it’s the left-handed crescent wrench that comes in the tool kit.
