Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

MURICA! great pics!

interesting the C6 is not as wide.. im sure color plays a bit into how they look in these pictures. Would be interesting to see a C6Z next to your car for comparison. The Z is much more agressive looking than the C6.

Also it looks like the they reduced the rear overhang on each model.

Indeed you were! The C6 was the lightest of the three too. The C6 was a big step up from the C5, it just didn't really look like it. Interesting fact though, C5 owners can upgrade to C6 suspension components (shocks & swaybars).

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

UH OH!!! I couldn't resist! AFE just came out with their new Momentum Cold Air Intake System for the C7 that has shown great results (+18whp/+22wtq) and offered it at a group-buy price below dealer-cost, plus threw in a 2nd filter and cleaning kit for me.

I'm unsure when I want to install it, and which filter to use first. I'm leaning towards the Pro5R (blue oiled cotton filter) first then the ProDryS (white dry synthetic filter) once the 5R gets dirty and needs a cleaning.





It's tough to tell from the pictures, but the filters are HUGE! This is probably the nicest intake kit I've ever seen for a car, you can definitely tell a lot of engineering and R&D went into the design of it.

It all starts with an innocent little intake mod... So whens the cam install and bolt-on turbo?.

Wow, that's a lot more of a gain then I would expect on a well-tuned factory car. Apparently they left plenty on the table.

Tell that to Scheides...he keeps sending me links for supercharger kits, and I just happened to drive past East Coast Superchargers last weekend.

It appears that Chevy did dial the cars back pretty far as lots of gains are already being found with intakes, headers, ported throttle bodies, tunes, etc. I've actually looked at the Diablo InTune a bit too which is basically the Accessport for domestics...20+ whp from the 93-octane tune, plus it also has a 91-octane flash available so it would be safe for my roadtrips.

The dealership had my car while I was in Chicago for a few days...long story short, I got a new air filter and an alignment covered under warranty

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

Still sitting in the box, wanted to get everything sorted out with the dealership first! I'll likely install it sometime soon. I am tempted to order the Diablo InTune soon too.

The dry-sump system basically purged oil into the intake pipe and that oil then drained out through the air filter. Chevy initially over-stated the oil capacity so the oil being over-filled is what caused that issue. Since the OEM paper air filter was drenched in oil they replaced it under warranty while only filling the oil to halfway between the min & max mark; I expect a revised dipstick will be made. Luckily I hadn't installed an aftermarket filter or intake yet otherwise it would have been ruined All should be well now though!

How does something like that get through testing? Sheesh! Glad you got it sorted out under warranty.

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

I think like any other first-year model, there are always things that don't pop up until more real-world miles occur. Chevy is aware of it now though and has released two TSB's pertaining to it (with the 2nd being released just a week ago). I think the initial test/prototype cars have tighter controls with only the factory techs touching them rather than the factory-certified dealer techs.

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

How many quarts does the engine take - originally from the factory, and after the new TSBs?
