||My 2001 Convertible Corvette
Yes, this is my 2001 bright, shiny, new,red, Corvette convertible. Having waited three months for delivery, it didn't give me much time to enjoy until I had to cover it up for the winter.
You see, this car will never see snow or ice. Now, every once and awhile, I pull off the cover and fire it up in the garage and listen to the sweet sound of the exhausts.
Soon we will be able to pop the top and cruise the countryside. Come on Summer!
* 2001 Corvette Convertible
* Torch Red
* black interior
* 12 disc changer
* Body Side Moldings
The beautiful color you see is "Torch Red", with the Black interior. In stock form it came with the 4-speed, sport seats. I had the dealer add the factory 12 CD changer, and immediately I upgraded the suspension to the Z51 sport package with take-off parts from Mallet, and bodyside moldings. After that -- the mod addiction began.
* Z51 suspension
* Donaldson LS6 Air Intake
* Ported MAF Sensor
* Valentine 1 Radar Detector
* Corsa "Pace Car" Exhaust
* Vette Doctors X-Pipe
* Shock/Proximity Sensor Alarm Upgrade
* Center console C5 Emblem
* Door Sill Protectors
* CAGS disabler
* Custom Lloyd Mats Floor Mats/Deck Mat
* Breathless Performance Exhaust Plate
* Headlight Upgrade with Sylvania "Cool Blues" and * NAPA 885 fog lamps
* Stock shifter shortened 1"
* Zanio and some TLC
All of the mods that I've done (except for the x-pipe) are "bolt-on". I'm a warrantee nut and didn't want to do anything that would void it. All the upgrades are completely reversible if I needed to, so it's going to be 5yrs/75,000 before I consider the Lingenfelter Twin Turbo setup ;)
What does all that mean ?
Check out the results of my Dyno runs. With just the intake and ported MAF, I'm putting out 323 RWHP! Can't wait to see if the Corsa system added anything.
