Default Not a Subaru But still fun

Recently I had a chance out in Spokane, WA to tune a 2007 C6 Corvette, Automatic with a Header and CAI. The results were pretty impressive for an N/A car.

We did the tuning at the drag strip, it was crazy how soft the stock settings are for performance shifting once we changed that it made the car that much better...but here are some of the numbers.

the car started going to 12.8's at roughly 112 on the previous tune. by the time we were done remapping the car it went 12.55 at 116. On a better tire i'm sure the car can pick up even more time down the track, and I have to say he couldn't of been happier with the results... neither could I

Lets compare an average vette to the fastest stock STi? I bet the average STi 1/4 mile time is closer to 14

hehe, well what about that 10+ mph gap there...vs the sti's just over 100 trap
those 08 vettes are even better with 436 hp...and put down close to 400...few more months of depreciation and it'll be cheaper then a used sti

get a manual trans (or even auto) vette w/drag radials and it's a whole 'nother story...very respectable

i have not heard of many bone stock STis breaking into the 12's...for every one that does- there are probably a thousand vettes running deep into the 12's. but, it's still an old man's car

+1 on wanting to know if you tune with the stock ECU (if so what program) or use some sort of chip / piggy back unit.

More details please.

It was the stock ECU, it was tuned using HP Tuners. It allows me to tune all parameters of the ECM as well as the TCM which is great when you have weak shifting automatic to start with

Yep exactly, even when I had my stock turbo STi running with an intake, exhaust and TGV' deletes going 12.30's I was only trapping 112-113 MPH. This vette was moving very nice for minimal mods. With a good drag radials on the corvette and a 1.8-1.9 60' it would have probably gone low 12's and a little more mph

congrats on improving your customers results!

at other tracks (diff elevation/DA) with different drivers, bone stock c6's are running as fast as high 11's at 119mph. here's the official list...

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c6-t...lenge-203.html

STi's are just hard to run in the qtr mile, topend kills them. although, they can be very competitive in the 1/8 mile.

anyway..


nice car, tell us more about the tune and the car if you have time..how can you change the shifting, never heard of that type of tuning..especially with the stock ecu(i doubt he has such few mods and a stand alone, but i've been wrong before )

No sense in comparing STI vs Corvette at different tracks, conditions, weather, etc . The new Vettes are no joke; very capable machines to say the least. Congrats on shaving off 3/10's with just a tune .

Thanks Austin, you bring up a good point the car was at 2200 ft above sea level

These corvettes definitely MPH compared to a Subaru but that is all in design and application...so it really comes down to what you want to do with the car

The engine management like stated above is the stock ECU. HP Tuners allows me to tune both the ECM (engine management) and TCM (transmission control unit). So by using that I can adjust shift points, how hard the car shifts and many other factors including turning off traction control and torque management.

HP Tuners is pretty impressive software!!, but it's not cheap we are lucky our stock ECU tuning software is open source can't beat the price of buying a cable

I would like to pick up a used C6 Vette in 5-8 years and twin turbo that sucker for high 9 sec 1/4 mile passes.

The best part about HP Tuners for the customer is, that it is essentially the same as open source on subarus. The customer doesn't have to buy any sort of hardware, I can just plug in and tune the stock ECU.
