How many miles on the car? More I drove mine the louder it got.

First mod I would try is a "fuse pull". It is free and runs the exhaust 100% of the time with the valves open.

I went from a Gen 5 ZL1 to a 2016 Z06. First the overheating crap is so overblown. Mine is one of the non-"fixed" cars and has never overheated. My Gen 5 was noticeably...

I was told it was still a requirement for Dry sump motors which the Z06 has. Unless something has changed the 500 mile service is free of charge.

I don't own a Camaro anymore but if I was to buy a gen 5 again it would be a 2012-2013 ZL1. By far the best looking Gen 5. A buddy has a Yellow 2012 ZL1 and it looks so good. The 2014+ rear end never...

Not for at least 30 years and that is not guaranteed a classic.

On your Z06 have you tried Tour for 1/4 mile runs? Lot of the fastest stock runs are in tour. The thought is the softer shock setting allows more weight transfer.

Little read about the motor.
