Have been looking at ctsv coupe since they came out. Have been in the corvette world the last few years having owned a few C6’s. Picked up my 2013 coupe 6 speed just a few weeks ago.

Car had a corsa, airaid , and a core short shifter

Ordered a griptec 2.45 , 100mm idler, speed engineering long tubes, dsx flex fuel kit, fic 1000cc injectors, and a moroso catch can




From there car was off to AMP for a tune and put down

576 rwhp 585 rwtq on pump
614 rwhp 599 rwtq on E85

Super happy with the car right now and cooling mods are next in mind with my heat exchanger already having been ordered.

Nice numbers.

I've been stockpiling some parts getting ready to do a similar build on my 6 speed sedan.

2.4 griptec, id1050x, track attack HX, kooks to stock, mighty mouse CC, no flex yet.

How does the car drive? What boost are you seeing?

Drives amazing looks like i hit right about 14psi on the dyno. From stock to what it is now huge difference in power so really excited for what’s it’s become for really the little I’ve spent in comparison

That's awesome. Great to hear you confirm the "bang for buck" mods.

I'm hoping to hit similar numbers on pump. Up at high elevation I'm at about 6lbs haha looking forward to the increase in power/boost

I got one of those, well... When I bought the donor V it had one...I like it, but I think it's defective. Let me know if yours sometimes just shuts off.

That’s definitely not normal from my experience. Do you ever run anything else off your OBD2 port like HP Tuners? If it doesn’t intermittently lose comms as well I’d suspect the Aeroforce. If it does, it could be a damaged port.

Keep in mind there was a crook selling defective and stolen aero force gages and most of them were sold to V owners.

That looks good. How's the clearance at stock height? I've been considering a front splitter, but I like not having to be really careful entering/exiting various places.

Any issues with the headers scraping at stock ride height?

Cars looking clean.
