The End of the V8 in the Corvette is Nigh?
With reports of Ford nixing the V8 altogether, it didn’t take long for “Corvette Forum” members to start imagining a Corvette world without the familiar rumble of the V8.

In the world of custom Corvette’s, there seems to be no such thing as too high of a price, even when the Corvette in question is probably not worth a tenth of what the seller is actually asking for. Take this 1969 Corvette “prototype showcar,” for example.
All 2015 Corvette Z06 engines are “blown”, as in supercharged, but we only know of one so far that has blown up, and it belongs to Corvette Forum member “lawdogg149″. Here’s how it all happened.
We have been tipped off to a possible fix for the Z06 ECU’s power-robbing tendencies, and best of all, it’s a solution that won’t void the 650-horsepower beast’s warranty. Let the car break in.
