Time to say goodbye- Another V6 moves up

Well, looks as if the funding has taken place and Sycrafts Hot Blown Six is moving on to another lucky owner. I will still come by and check on everyone and it has been great to be part of the V6 Forced Induction test team. The car has performed flawlessly and I am sure it will give the new owner as much joy as it has given me. So what do I replace it with..... How about a 2015 3LT Z51 Stingray with Competition Seats and 7 Speed Trans...Hopefully will know if it works out soon.

Ok I see how it is, a V6 camaro isn't good enough for ya so you go and get a Corvette? I thought V6 to ZL1 was a big step, but damn. Good choice!!!

Do most of you guys who go from a V6 to V8, ZL1, Corvette roll your remaining balance over to the new car or do you guys wait until your car is completly paid off?

sycraft,

Congrats buddy!

It's well deserved and I know you'll enjoy the C7. It feel some of the best drivers on the track started with the V6 cars and moved up. I also wanted to says thank you for all the help you've given me when I was upgrading my V6. It helped me a ton.

Just curious...did you get the performance track data option?

My wife and I considered the C7 as it is a bad ass car but we have 4 kids and the ZL1 was just a better fit for our family. I got such a great deal on this ZL1 that I couldn't pass it up.

Congrats again and enjoy.

Be sure to let us know when to check out the C7 forums for pics.

Nice!

From a highly modified forced induction, track oriented V6 with over 400rwhp, to a C7 Z51.

Sweet upgrade for sure, but I'd love to see your old car and the new go at it in a roll and see how close they are lol (just for sh!ts and giggles)

Congrats!
