That makes sense. I made 290 whp on Shane's dyno on pump, and if I remember right, the RWD's make closer to Dynojet numbers on a DD compared to AWD's. Now if I can make 400 whp with the Green on pump at Shane's, I'll be a happy man.

For comparison, C7's are putting down around 420whp Dynojet in stock form.

The C6 is now safely in MN! My dad flew down Friday and we drove it up Sunday. The cruise was set between 80-85 MPH the whole way and it averaged 26 MPG so pretty impressive in my opinion.

Awesome sauce.
What are your thoughts on C6 vs C7, now that you have some time in both? (Just curious)

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

Sort of like comparing an Evo IX to Evo X; the 7 is more refined and overall improved/better with more technology packed into it, but the 6 is still a very fun car and more of a raw sports car (no where near as raw as a IX though, still can be a comfortable touring car). The C6 does have a slightly roomier cabin than the C7 too. The engines are very strong in both and the cornering grip impressive.

Nice, thanks for that.
Did you see the article about the "final 638" Chevy is going to bring back a few C6 ZR1 cars that weigh 29xxlbs and make a bit more power.

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

After bombing around in my dad's C6 I was thought, "Damn, why didn't I buy a used one of these instead of the Evo X back in 2010?!"

PlanoEvo's father recently passed and in his will gave his Corvette, with only 12k miles on it, to Andrew.

Wow, crappy to hear about Andrew's dad, my condolences.

Great photoshoot though, red/white/blue, murican in Texas!

Is it just me or does the C6 look quite a bit narrower than the c5/c7? Also, the c5 still doesn't look as dated as the c4 (i hate the c4) but its started to look less sexy unfortunately, just because the c6/c7 look solid. All great cars though.

Likely just the angle, but let me dig into the dimensions...I do know the C6 is 5" shorter than the C5 though.
