If the C8 is not turbocharged, and you have equal tires, and you couldn't keep up with a C8 in a ZL1 1LE... It's not the C8, it's the driver's skill vs yours.

Yeah I would put a lot of track and canyon miles on a car like that, if they could get it down to 3400 lbs it could be special. The C8 motor might save weight, but the DCT is heavy.

I hate to say this, but beyond the comments about re-engineering the car to fit it etc., I just can’t see why GM would want to dilute the impact of this motor and the Z06 by also putting it in a...

"Any brake fade? Best track pads for stock ZLE calipers?"

OEM pads are excellent, and very affordable. But for only $1000 a set f/r... Ferodo DS 1.11 are amazing. They are way too expensive, I...

I noticed the unusual size of the pads, those appear to be over 2x the thickness of my DS 1.11s. I'm curious, how much for a front set of those pads? DS 1.11 fronts from Essex are ~$620.

“I have already debunked the Dexos scam.“ I’m not clear how you define “debunk” here. Are you saying you found a way to void GM findings on a warranty claim so they will have to honor your claim?

I agree, if you still have a warranty don't install the Katech or GM won't cover damage if that fails. Use the revised pump, I bet it's great now.

Yes, it's always best to replace an oil cooler after an engine failure or you can't be certain what is stuck in there.

You can flush it, but results are uncertain.
