How to Add 30hp to the Corvette Z06 w/o Opening the Hood

The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 delivers 650hp and 650lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful Corvette of all time, but those C7 Z06 owners who want a bunch more power without having to open the hood, Diablosport has you covered – with a plug-n-play tuning setup that adds 30 horsepower and 20lb-ft of torque.

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been billed by General Motors since day 1 as the most track-capable Corvette of all time and a big part of those performance capabilities is the supercharged LT4 V8, delivering 650 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque – also making the new Z06 the most powerful factory Corvette of all time. However, while the new Z06 is, in theory, the best-performance Corvette of all time in a variety of venues ranging from the quarter mile to the Nürburgring, some owners are going to want improved performance.

That is where the folks at Diablosport come into play, as their new tuning package adds power to the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 while also sharpening up the throttle response of the big, bad C7 Z06. This is all achieved simply by plugging the Diablosport product into the OBDII port under the dash of the new Corvette.

Diablosport Tunes the Corvette Z06
The new Diablosport tuning package for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is available with their Trinity and InTune tuning devices. The Corvette Z06 tuning package comes with a trio of preset engine control unit programs that adjust things like fuel flow, air flow and spark timing to squeeze more power out of the supercharged LT4 without risking damage to the engine. The preset tunes are the 91 Octane and 93 Octane packages, with the lower octane tune adding 25 horsepower and 20lb-ft of torque while the 93 Octane tune adds 30 horsepower and 20lb-ft of torque. The third tuning option is a modified stock tune, which allows the owner to adjust the variable parameters as they see fit – a feature which can be very useful when having a shop create custom tunes.

In addition to adding power, the Diablosport Corvette Z06 tuning packages sharpen throttle response out of the package, while the “Throttle Booster” option allows drivers to fine tune the throttle crispness based on their preferences.

Finally, the Diablosport products allow Corvette Z06 owners to make adjustments to their speedometer for different tires sizes or gear ratios, along with all of the adjustable parameters included in the tuning suite.

The Diablosport Trinity with the Corvette Z06 tune starts at $599 while the InTune costs just $389, so for as little as $389, your 2015 Corvette Z06 can pack 680 horsepower and 670lb-ft of torque without opening the hood.

ya that's what it needed alright....more power heheheh
OR... you could get it dyno tuned. As in, for your car and pick up way more. How are people still buying these handheld tuners in 2015?? Shit's garbage. I'll pay the same price and get HP Tuners and the ability to tune four cars.. Nice "news" article by the way.
