Bump. Any news? Another C7 Z51 customer who melted the Actuators doing a charity ride at a Race Track.

Edit: Apologies. I missed this link: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...actuators.html

Hopefully Tadge and his engineering team can read through my thread on this issue.

Z06 does not have AFM actuators, so that is the model not affected.

Base model too. Just not Z06. But apparently '17+ Z51 & GS manuals will not have the AFM actuators

Are the AFM Actuators covered under the powertrain warranty? Emissions Warranty? Basic warranty?

Bump. I have a 2017 GS A8. It burps a P12F0 after a track day. Been to the dealer thrice now for warranty repair and replacement. Very interested in the answer here.

Guys, check the dates, this was already answered a long time ago:

The answer might not be what you're looking for, though.

Silly me. I saw this as "ASKED", and another post that stated the answer was deferred due to introducing the GS. I did not see the ANSWERED, but thanks to your link I now have.

As you stated, the answer was... underwhelming. It appears that without voiding my warranty, I will continue to have warranty issues. Perhaps the Fuse 32 hack is in my future.
