Different system. And they're not actively developing anything for the previous generation.

I tried to go to my dealership where I purchased my 2017 z51 to get this, but they didn't know about it. How do they look this up? They said something about a document number or PO number.


Thank You Tadge

CD just released the Ford GT results of their Lightening Lap Jan 2018 as the GT is now the ‘king’ and fastest lap at 2:43.0 on the VIR grand course. You have the math post calibration of the z06. The ZR1 put nearly 6 seconds on the ‘king’ 30 days after the GT post. Hahaha I have the pdr links if you want them.

Model Year 2014-2016 vehicles refer to Document ID 3633837, Model Year 2017-2018 vehicles refer to DocumentID 4593366.
Step 4 – Refer to installationinstructions in SI Document ID 4873206,for specific product details.
Step 5 – The labor for download and the re-flash of the module is to be chargedto labor OP code
0602448 at an allowable 0.3hr.
Step 6 – Collect MSRP $350.00 from customer which covers ALL COST, including Labor for the
download and re-flash of the module. NOTE: This upgraded suspensioncalibration is a
customer-pay transaction and should not be submitted as a warranty claim. Theonly
submission to General Motors is for 0.3hr Labor per Step 5.
Step 7 – Dealer Piece Costfor Calibration will be billed to the BARS/Open Account monthly via
Techline. Dealer Statement will include the 17-digit VIN, Part Number Reference“CORVSUSP" and

https://dealer.autopartners.net/port...US-9-4986.aspx 1/31/2018
The MRC damper system hasa built-in temperature offset correction as part of the calibration.
Chevrolet Performance recommends allowing the vehicle to sit for 8 to 10 hoursafter flash of
Calibration and prior to spirited driving. This step does not need to be done at the dealership and
can be done at the customer's convenience. Allowing the vehicle to sitwill allow the damper
temperatures to normalize, and the temperature offset in the calibration toaccurately reset. The
vehicle is still functional prior to sitting for 8-10 hours. However, thetemperature offset correction
will be less accurate, resulting in a less optimized operation until the dampertemperatures
normalize.

Tadge,

I had the MRC done on my car last week. I know that it is faster straight in corners and braking than my Lotus, but with the MRC the car feels better than the Lotus.

More specifically (I have not been to the track yet):

The feel of the steering is as good as the Lotus (which is unassisted rack and pinion).
The car feels like rotates in a corner better (better than the Lotus).
Going from a smooth surface to a rough surface is seamless.

I am sure I will discover more when I get it out on the track. Again the mod does not make the car significantly faster, but I think the ride will significantly make me more confident in the cars abilities and improve my times faster.

Thanks for the effort it is well worth the cost.

Nick

Is there any way to confirm that this tune was applied by a dealer?

Having it done today, and not sure how much difference I'll feel before and after given I have an '18.
