    The C8 Corvette is here and now we can start looking forward to what these things will do in the hands of the aftermarket. GM decided to give the C8 Corvette the same E99 ECU that the C7 ZR1 is equipped with and that gave tuners plenty of trouble before being cracked. No doubt Chevy adjusted encryption or made changes to again make the Corvette tough to tune. Most of us though are salivating at the prospect of tuning the C8 which is just begging for some boost. Should tuners get in the C8 becomes an even greater performance value and frankly the best bargain in the business. The LT2 itself does not differ too much from the LT1. The main difference is that it is dry sump by default. The compression ratio and bore x stroke are the exact same as are the engine internals. The LT2 is rated higher though by 35 horses. Where do the extra horses come from? Redesigned intake and exhaust manifolds along with changes to the exhaust portion of the camshaft. Beyond that, even the 6600 rpm redline remains the same. The aftermarket will get more top end out of it with an aggressive cam and a ported set of heads. Hopefully revving the motor out more will not pose a problem for the TCU or ECU.
