Convertible and Davenport

I own a 2017 SS convertible and I'm seriously considering doing some upgrades with Davenport. I'm debating between stage 2 and 3 and wondering if anybody on here has done it with a convertible and if so what I should be aware of.

Off the top I want to keep the strut tower brace and make sure that the car maintains it's everyday drive-ability. Next up because we have the rear brace that impacts the exhaust is it even worth replacing it with the Kooks headers?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Steve at Davenport is really great to work with and should be able to relay their customer experiences to you.

Finally chatted with Steve a few weeks ago. Planning to send the car to them in February so I have it ready for the spring.

Good news! What did you decide to get done while it's there? My friend's C7 ZR1 is at their shop right now.

Going with the stage 3, plus the 2 extra cooling upgrades, HP tuner and because I have the A8 transmission some transmission reprogramming.

Ok, I just got the car back yesterday and while the roads aren't perfect yet, it was still warm enough to take it out for a bit around town. The power difference is amazing. It is so so so much quicker and faster. I can't wait until the we get some warmer weather and the street sweepers get the sand off the roads.

Did they give you a dyno sheet of baseline vs completed mods?

Glad to hear you have it back and love the difference

Yeah they did. Ended up making another 200hp to the wheels. I can't figure out how to post a link to the dyno or I would
