Feeling slow

Hi guys i have my car for about 4 months, idk why but the cars seems to feel slow, here is some of the questions i have,
1st: how do you check to see if the intercooler pump is working?
2nd: how to check IAT2?
does the outside temp and humidity effect the performance of our cars that much?

if you start the car, the heat exchanger pump should start circulating soon after. if you put your hand on the hose you should be able to feel the pump running.

for IAT and other data you can get an OBD2 reader or HP tuners or similar.

environmental conditions will affect performance slightly, but not as much as an NA car.

put good gas in it always, and try a fuse pull if your car isn't tuned.

after 4 months, you are most likely getting used to the car's acceleration.

Yep...Boosted apps. hate the heat...But you shouldn't be loosing so much performance that is feels slow...Look it over really good by the manual specs, if you put some bad gas in it, it may require the fuse pull...

Which fuse do you pull? I am about to pick up my '15 ZL1 and I'm going to assume the dealers put the cheapest possible stuff in there.

Have you taken it to a track to see how "slow" it is?

Whenever mine starts to feel slow, I just add mods until it doesn't feel slow anymore. Lol!

This cars feels slow because the power is so linear. Like Bryan said, take it to a track. It definitely likes cooler weather, I can feel a difference in cooler weather.

Was the same way, tried the fuse pull and not sure if it helped or not. Just drive it and you'll probably want to do some bolt-ons soon, like me .

BAX what part of Houston are you from? There is a local meet about to come up and if you want we can meet and talk about the ZL1's. You might have had BIG expectations and if you had past street cars with heavy modifications, you just might be use to a certain feel that the Z is not providing you with. I've had similar expectations coming from a fox body background... I'm use to a violent pull followed by a skating sensation until I let out. The Z does not do that. It is more planted and the handling is easy to keep when going from a dig. Anyways, let me know if you are up for meeting and if so, we can catch a few beers and BS a little.

These cars are dogs if the temp is above 90 degrees.
SUCKS!!
You don't even have to beat on them, soon as I leave my garage and go one mile in the 90's the car is a dog. Car behaves VERY different if its 70 degrees.
My friends Hellcat and GT500 don't suffer like I do, they have to beat on their cars in the 90's before they become dogs.

Also, if you keep putting your foot into it, you'll just get use to it more and more.

The heat is killing me too. Especially with the black convertible top! The other day my windshield temp was telling me it was 109 degrees outside! Eek!
