  • New here, from Northern California

    Just wanted to say, hi, to everyone. I created an account, here, about 6-7 moths ago, but had just never posted, until this week. I kind of came back over here from watching Horse Power Obsessed videos, on YouTube. Either way, Im glad to be here. I enjoy everything Corvette. I have a 2015 C7 Z51, that I bought, about this time, last year, with 8,100 miles on it. So, it was still fairly new. I drove it quite a bit, its first year, because, it now as 26K on it. I just replaced the tires, this week with the factory Michelin Pilot SS ZPs, that came with it. I liked the tires, myself.

    Nothing special about the car, really. Alpine White, with Black Z51 wheels. Carbon flash mirrors, spoiler, upper vents. I replaced the older rotors, with the new solid style design. I also went with the Carbotech pads. They seem to be working well. I don't plan on modifying the car, although, I usually modify most of the cars I get, but I also don't usually buy naturally aspirated cars. I prefer turbo cars, myself. Looking forward to the C8 reveal, and I hope to see everyone on the forums.

    Thanks,
    Gregg

        Gregg, thanks for your backstory. It will be interesting to see how many keep their C8’s stocks, how many do light mods, and how many choose to go big. Glad you are posting!

            I appreciate the welcome, guys. I dont plan on modding this car, because of the fact that its normally aspirated, and to me, intake and exhaust to make the car louder, just isnt getting much out of an N/A car. Now, if it was a Z06, I would be messing with the boost, for sure. Same with the C8, If I hold out for the turbo version. I already know its going to get at least a tune. Hell, even my 2017 Cruze Premier, is tuned. Its also turbocharged. I just dont enjoy modding N/A cars, like I do anything forced induction. Theres something to say about tuning forced induction cars, when my Cruze gains 56 HP, and 92Lb Ft of torque from an ecu flash.

            Also, as a reminder, I keep hearing that the C8 ecu isnt going to be tunable. They said the same thing about the GTR ecu, and look where they are with that car?

              The ECU for the ZR1 was not going to be tunable, that is until recently when at least one of the top companies figured out how to do that.
