Diablosport Introduces 2017 Camaro SS, Corvette Stingray and Z06 Tuning Packages
The Camaro SS, the Corvette Stingray, the Corvette Grand Sport and the Corvette Z06 are all the most powerful cars to wear each of those names while also being among the most powerful cars in each of their respective segments. However, we all know that customization and modification is a huge part of performance car ownership, so the aftermarket is chock full of components which will increase the output of the new LT1 and LT4.
One of the simplest ways to add a noticeable amount of power to all new vehicles is a good engine tune and for those 2017 Camaro and Corvette owners who want a touch more power without making any actual modifications, the folks at Diablosport have just rolled out their pre-loaded performance packages for the newest Camaro SS and the entire Corvette lineup.
Diablosport Tunes the 2017 Corvette, Camaro SS
The tuning experts at Diablosport announced earlier this week that their inTune i2 and Trinity tuners can now be ordered with pre-loaded performance tunes for the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport and the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these tuning devices will allow the owner to adjust the speedometer for different tire sizes or gear ratios, turn off active fuel management, adjust the cooling fan settings, adjust the idle RPM, adjust the rev limiter, eliminate the speed limiter, adjust throttle sensitivity, sharpen automatic transmission shifts and – most importantly – add horsepower by adjusting the fuel flow and spark timing.
Each tuning device for the 2017 Chevrolet performance models comes with three pre-loaded performance settings – a modified stock tune, a 91 octane performance tune and a 93+ octane performance tune. The modified stock tune maintains the same power levels as the stock specs, but it sharpens throttle response and, when applicable, the shift characteristics of the automatic transmission.
In the case of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS, the 91 octane performance tune adds 11 horsepower and 16lb-ft of torque while the 93+ performance tune adds 15 horsepower and 20lb-ft of torque – for total output levels in the area of 470 horsepower and 475lb-ft of torque.
With the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Grand Sport, which rely on the same LT1 as the Camaro SS, the 91 octane tune adds 15 horsepower and 22lb-ft of torque while the 93+ tune adds 20 horsepower and 30lb-ft of torque. This raises the peak output of the 2017 Stingray and Grand Sport to 480 horsepower and 495lb-ft of torque.
Finally, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with the supercharged LT4 benefits the most from this new lineup of Diablosport tuning packages, with the 91 octane tune adding 25 horsepower and 20lb-ft of torque while the 93+ tune adds 30 horsepower and 30lb-ft of torque. With this package, 2017 Corvette Z06 owners will enjoy somewhere in the area of 680 horsepower and 680lb-ft of torque.
Doing a quick web search, it looks like the Diablosport inTune costs around $360 while the Trinity costs around $500, but considering the power increase coupled with the other advantages of these tuning devices, a hand tuner is really one of the best performance gadgets on the market today.
