  1. EXCLUSIVE PROOF: The Mid-Engined Chevrolet C8 Corvette Is Happening!

    Other Cars
    Yeah I know it's an LT2, I'm just saying that the LT2 is really an upgraded LT1 with just minor changes to give it a little more power. Same block, same crank, same rods, same crappy pistons.. And yes, Motor Trend's C8 dyno numbers were super inflated . You would think a major magazine would...

    That dyno definitely seems high for a 121-122mph 1/4 mile speed at 3600lbs. And I don't think they did anything really special to the LT1 to get those kind of gains.

    Also you have to consider that the C8 rides on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S ZP tires, which from what I hear are a big improvement over the C7 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Overall, it looks like GM got most of the Corvette right. Looking forward to more comparison and long term tests.

    From everything I've been reading, it sounds like the C8 doesn't handle quiet as well as the C7. Too much understeer. I bet Chevy did that on purpose for safety. C/D also said that it isn't as fun to drive as the C7 or as engaging. I bet a big part of that is having no manual transmission.

    https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...y-the-numbers/ Definitely fast off the line. Several mags have 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds, 1/4 mile 11.2 @ 122mph
  6. Please help I’m trying to get 500whp

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Yes, you do not have timing control with the stock ECU. And you will make more power with a stand alone. I made 495rwhp on a GT35R at 17psi with my built 7M(cams/headwork) on pump gas with an AEM ECU. For a not apples to apples comparison, I made 511rwhp with a stock 7M at 25psi on a C16/93 mix...

    I definitely agree with Madison. For 500rwhp the stock ECU works great and is very easy to tune. You can go with a Lexus AFM, a MAFT-pro, or a HKS VPC to name a few. I currently use a VPC with a SAFC and it works great.
  8. MKIII takes no. 1 in 5 affordable muscle cars to own. And 5 most expensive.

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    This is why I always say to pay extra for the nicest/well kept MK3 you can find. It will be worth it in the end.

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    First you have to make sure your 7M (if that's what you have) is healthy and has a MLS headgasket torqued down properly. Way back I made 511rwhp with a PT61mm turbo/HKS manifold/40mm waste gate, full exhaust, front mount intercooler and pipes/BOV. Stock ECU/lex AFM/AFC, 550cc injectors/walbro...
  10. First Sign of BMW Reliability Issues

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    OK, so some people one here like MK2 Supras. Some people on here like MK3 Supras. Some people on here like MK4 Supras. And not many on here like BMW Supras. Now too: What will break next?
  11. First Sign of BMW Reliability Issues

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    I'm guessing you(along with 9ktt$) have never driven or even been in a low mileage mint condition MK3 Supra. I drove in a brand new turbo model in 1987 when they first came out, and eventually bought a mint condition 92 with 70K miles. They were top of the class in performance and refinement at...

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    "But, but, but PerformanceSound said that Toyota had done extensive R&D on power and reliability???????" LOL, I was about to say almost the exact thing.. I thought (according to some people here) that Toyota was going to go over every BMW part to make sure it meets Toyota reliability standards...

    I went to Carlisle this past weekend. They had several C8's that you could sit in and get a good feel for. My visual opinion on the C8: -The interior is nice, best seats yet, and best materials used. Although the center stack of buttons looks dumn(just like the pictures), and the infotainment...

    Definitely.. People who like to control clutch engagement, rather than computers, will still have plenty of choices. It's good to not be brand loyal.
  15. what can toyota do to win you back with the gr supra?

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    The C8 is a nice car, but a couple corrections: The curb weight will be closer to 3600lbs. And there's no way you are getting one for $60K, more like $70-80K with options and dealer mark-up. But still better than this joke of a Supra.

    Looks nice, but I have to have a real manual transmission. And I don't care how much faster a DCT is.

    MKIII owners will not embrace it either. All prior Supra's were real Toyota's.
  18. The 7M vs. JZ 2019 Edition: Where Are We Now?

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    The main issue I had was the tuning with the AEM EMS. The 7M ignition system did not work well with the EMS causing a low rpm stumble that I could not get rid of. After I ditched the stand alone EMS and went back to the VPC, I could not get the car to idle with the BC264 cams unless I adjusted...
  19. The 7M vs. JZ 2019 Edition: Where Are We Now?

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    I pushed my stock 7M with a MLS HG to 511rwhp at 25psi with a little race gas on a 61mm turbo. That was stock block, stock head/cams, stock ECU with piggybacks. That car was a simple reliable setup that was very easy to tune. Ran a best time of 12.0 at 120mph with that setup.. I later went with...

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    Really? And you think people are going to care about a stubby looking, lower class BMW with a Supra badge? Ford and GM have been making high performance cars in the last 21 years while Toyota has been twittling there thumbs,concentrating on how much profit they will make from there...
