Bumping this because I don't feel like starting another thread. Picked up a bone stock 02 Z06 with 109k this week. I enjoyed the Bullitt but wanted to get into a better chassis and frankly I missed my old corvette. Plans for this car are pretty similar to my old one (bolt-ons, cam, etc). I spent the day today doing an oil change and repairing the turn signals. My hazard switch failed which caused the turn signals not to work at all. One $5 relay and a half hour of work fixed that though. I managed to talk the dealer down $2k off of their price because of that issue..

I'm gonna see about lowering it on the stock bolts for now. Future plans include a set of Forgestar F14s (see pic), C6Z brakes, ARH long tubes, Corsa Extremes, a Halltech cai, and a dyno tune. I plan on getting this out to the road course so for now I will be doing maintenance items instead of mods. I did buy an MGW today, which should arrive some time this week.

I don't have too many pictures right now but that should be changing soon.

Love it! Great color and wheels look excellent (and I usually don't like black wheels). These look soooo much better than the C7's lol. Don't know if I said it last week, but congrats! Hope you stick around like you did last time.

I haven't bought those wheels uet, but those are the wheels that I'm planning on picking up. The C5Z's are my second favorite Corvette with the first being the C6Z. I'll hang around here still, it's too much of a habit for me to browse this forum.

How does the car seem to be holding up after 15 years and 100k+ miles? Any obnoxious squeaking or rattling? Does the interior seem to be in pretty good shape?

Overall the car has been well taken care of. It's a two owner car originally out of California so the paint isn't in bad shape or anything. The drivers seat needs replaced because one of the owners would just fall into the seat. The left thigh bolster is completely destroyed because of it. There isn't any squeaks or rattles that I can find as of yet. More time may reveal some things I missed initially.

MGW came in today. Install was pretty straightforward and easier than I expected. Shifts are nice and crisp and take very little effort to switch gears. I was kind of hesitant to go with an MGW because the last two cars I've driven that had an MGW did not wow me.

Very cool. Post a video of the Z06 with them installed. I'd like to hear it.
I've been looking at C6 GS's lately might have to see what the Vette is about.


Pick your poison.

I can try but it's very quiet. I discovered that there was some sort of small rodent that called in and died. The exhaust smells like old fur and there's been a bunch of fur flying out of it.

That's an impressive feat. I've had an air intake full of dog food come in in a customer's car

Lol.
Hopefully nothing that a few good long wide open pulls won't solve.

Made a couple of those last night. I haven't gone and checked since then. Just idling it would blow fur out, so hopefully those hard pulls cleared it out.

Small update. Did the "zip tie" mod this morning. Guys on LS1Tech claim 15whp and 10wtq from doing this, so I figured I'd try it. I will admit to having my doubts about it, but we will see. The mod is basically taking off the air filter cover and zip tying the filter back onto the lower half of the air box. I'd assume that allows the filter to access more air and is where you might see gains in horsepower.

I should have more mods and updates coming in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

I would be surprised (Shocked really) if the engineers, of any of the manufacturers, left that much power in the air intake of their performance cars, built in the 21st century.
Anything is possible, though, I suppose...

What does your butt dyno results tell you?

Butt dyno wants to say that I noticed a difference, but I have a tough time telling if it's a placebo or not. I only have one benchmark but I haven't been able to test it yet. I'm skeptical that the dyno claims were combined with a tune.
