    13 grand plus installation and this kit sets check engine light.



    just sell current corvette stingray and pony up for the factory hotrod Z06.

    the warranty on the z06 even for track work males it a better deal.

    slip a belt on the pro charger has to be a *****..

      My concern about +200 HP is what about the reliability of all related powertrain parts, e.g., DCT, half shafts, bearings, eLSD, etc.

        I think we've seen how that goes on Emelia's car. One of the first things she did was change out the axles and her clutches were slipping somewhere in the neighborhood of 700ish ponies until she got the new clutch packs from Cicio.

          I know that nobody is able to properly tune this beast yet, and the aftermarket will eventually get there like it always has, but no way in hell I'm paying $13,000 to turn on my check engine light!

          That's unacceptable to me unless I only plan on tracking the car and don't car about streetability, warranty, etc.

            I think Speed Wrenches will alway look for things add on for more HP.

            Those days are over for me, if I want a 700 HP Car, I’ll start off by buying a 700 HP Car.

              This makes no sense. Sure do some mods to personalize or add 30 HP. Then save up for the ZO6 or ZR1. Add 200 HP and you need suspension,brakes,transmission,cooling,axles,..... .. And you end up with a car that is at most worth a stock price or likely a hard sell and worth less. Yes it is an interesting hobby but a financial mistake.

                When a powertrain part goes south and dealer requests warranty approval, while the Service Manager used to be able to make those decisions alone, now everything over a certain amount ( $100?) needs a review and approval first of the Regional Warranty Approval Approval (RWAS). Part of the two pieces of information the RWAS must receive from the dealer prior to making that determination, is the measurement from the ECU as to the maximum horsepower and torque that powertrain has ever been subjected to, and, how many times the ECU has been flashed (beyond GM’s software updates).

                So after seeing that ECU data the RWAS says to the dealership Service Manager and in turn to the customer, so you want the eLSD replaced and we see this powertrain has been subjected to 650 HP where it is rated to 570 HP maximum? “Sorry Charlie.”

                As our Busa Dave correctly IMO repeatedly states, “if you play, you need to be prepared to pay. The days of roughly 2 1/2+ years ago where the dealership could go wink, wink when a customer known to drag race every weekend on nitrous would blow a motor and get it warranty replaced, especially with that customer annually buying three new pick ups yearly from that dealership, since the new RWAS approval standards were implemented including those two ECU measurements being now required to be reviewed, once again, “Sorry Charlie” is a term heard much more frequently since.

                  $20k kit with installation and the trans upgrade. The lack of a real tune is a problem at that price level.

                      On one hand, doing the “wink, wink” the dealer was satisfying their customer. Money that’s not coming out of the customers pockets, helps to satisfy said customer and make a return customer. Multiply this by every dealer in the country and by every multiple car purchase return customer, and one can easily see how many millions of $$ are being lost by GM. In turn, this loss of revenue must be recaptured. One way to recapture said lost revenue is an increase in cost of replacement OEM parts coupled with having a RWAS. Unfortunately, too many people had taken advantage of the warranty system right, wrong or indifferent, leading us to where we are. In the final analysis, it will end up saving consumers $$ on one hand while concomitantly forcing us to spend more $$ on the other. But, in the end, big Corporations such as GM, are really the only winner in situations such as these.

                        Wow, interesting response to the Procharger kit. Kinda funny, guys here spend $5,000 for ceramic coatings, and film protection , $4,500 for
                        “ ground effects” add on’s which are not effective. But, jump all over the guys that love to mod their cars with more horsepower.
                        just sayin, Your opinion counts also.

                          Don't sweat it, it's your car, Mod it anyway you want. Sounds like you know what you're doing anyway. 👍

                            True dat,, we are not doing any horsepower mods to our C8. But we have done a scan of the pickup points of the suspension to see what camber, caster, and toe are doing in bump and rebound. We have a few ideas to try on the front suspension . We are more interested in making handling upgrades then adding horsepower right now.

                              Just why I bought two C7 Z06's. Complete Magnuson blower kit , 95 mm tb ported snout and 2 inch American Racing headers, Choice of intakes. Tune and complete stock like dependability. Only better runs cooler and power is in another league. less then 8k DIY plus the Engine is the most robust. Safe to over 1000 hp tranny included.
                              Should have no problem pulling away front the C8 z06 as well!
                              I wouldn't modify a car that cannot be tuned!
