I went with the Corsa. Their products are known to be OEM-quality fit/finish. No issues with mine. Nice bump in volume with no need to tune the car and still completely quiet in touring mode.

I think unveiling it in at the 25th anniversary caravan event would be epic... do it in the car's home town among the Corvette faithful. With social media why do you need a big auto show?

Shoot...

I would... I want the simplest 500 hp ME car I could get. LT2 + stick and I'd be very happy.

Dude... college costs $20K a year for a cheap one these days. I was advised to save $200K to send my kid to school if she chooses to go that route (she's almost 3).

My neighbors just did a kitchen...

Make sure the installer has done a C7 before. You have to take apart a lot of trim to do the glass.

Not saying $20K is nothing, but it's not going to materially affect my life. If you gave me $20K right now, I'd go buy the Nassau Blue C5 vert Iv'e been eyeing. I'd still all my bills and have to go...

An engine replacement shouldn't be rocket science for a GM tech, normally it's not. My father bought a 2004 Z06 that had a new motor from a dropped valve after a spring broke. Car was 100%...

Jesus dude... I've read about the bad torque tube swaps in the auto causing the crank to have improper runout and destroying the engine so that's not terribly uncommon. Apparently there's a very...

Exactly... it's a nice windfall, but you're not materially changing your station in life with $20K w/o pure luck investing it in something.

Maybe being a vert with the bottom mounted cooler it warms up faster. My coupe with Z06 inlet scoops added doesn't even move the gauge on my 20-30 minute drive to and from work.

Fox Business says "Majority of Americans" see $19,800 as "life changing" sum of money

it's a vague story, but making the rounds. $19K would barely cover a year of day-care, wouldn't even pay for the new floors in my house. Pretty surprising that "majority" feels $20K would be a life...

The Tremecs are fine once warmed up. Notchy as heck when cold. The C7's trans cooler exacerbates the issue as the trans doesn't come up to temp in normal drive cycles. Takes 30+ minutes and some...

They aren't... and it's a shame given how easy the C5/6 are to work on. There's no reason they couldn't have designed some kind of bulb access panel in the wheel well.

The ME is not a Cadillac; period.

Will they limp along the Z06/ZR1 to fill the gap with the C8 delay? Plausible, but not intended. What I don't get is if they're going to make the Z06/ZR1, why not...
