    look in ecklers corvette catalog,and others and you will find the part you need to use. it's called a cags disconnect plug. it will eliminate the 1st to 4th skip shift by disconnecting the computer aided gear selection [cags] system. simple plug-in install requires no modifications to your wireing. it costs $19.95 .a easy job to do too. now you can SMOKE EM !!

    I have had many cars,z-28s,GTOs 64,65 and a 66,all kinds of hand built hot rods,ect. and 2 1969 corvettes,one with a 350/350 and a big block 427. My best car of all time is my 1999 c-5 coupe. What a machine !!!!.Just turned 40 k and i've done some power mods and cosmedics. It has a great body style,the interior is wonderfull and very comfortable.And verry fast. It also gets 25.2 mpg in overdrive at 75 mph and about 20 mpg city. This is a car that you can go to the grocery store and then go raceing at the drag strip or tracK......I would buy one and you should too. You will never be disappointed. Wayne

    buy a c-5 corvette coupe from a private source. A dealer will screw you.

    "At least four-dozen concept and new production vehicles will debut at Cobo Center during the show, which is open to the public from Jan. 19 to 27.

    But the much-anticipated, seventh-generation Corvette is like the Blue Man Group showing up at Sunday school. Everybody wants to see it."

    I want to put the Mild to Wild on my c-6. What all will I have to do? And where to get it?
  • ndmike88ndmike88 Posts: 155
    The Corvette Museum sells the M2W switch as do many Corvette Forum sponsors. Its a matter of pulling out the #10(?) fuse and plugging in the M2W wire in the empty slot. Should take 5 minutes.
  • I cant put mild to wild on C-6 factory exhaust can I?
  • ndmike88ndmike88 Posts: 155
    Must have the NPP exhaust. The M2W switch allows you to open or close the baffles on the NPP exhaust. If you don't have the baffles you have nothing to open or close. Make sense?

    "General Motors has produced almost 1.4 million Corvettes over the past 60 years. Most are still around and each Corvette is a small economy unto itself. A Corvette isn't an appliance like a Malibu or a tool like a pickup. It's a car built for people who love cars. Or at least for people who love the Corvette.

    And because they love it they'll pamper that Corvette with exotic waxes, fancy embroidered floor mats, a tough-sounding exhaust system and shiny custom wheels. And, when it's finally all worn out, they'll restore it back to new and start the process all over again. It's a never-ending life cycle supported by companies, shops and dealerships that make, modify, restore and recycle virtually every part of these iconic machines."

    I am thinking of buying a new Corvette or perhaps waiting until the new model comes out. I need to be able to fit 2 sets of golf clubs/bags in it. Is it possible and is there room for anything else?
  • bolivarbolivar Posts: 2,316
    I just saw some stats. It has 22 cu feet of storage space. You will be astonished at the amount of stuff you can pack.

    Of course I'm talking about the coupe. A convertible will have much less.
  • ndmike88ndmike88 Posts: 155
    2 golf bags will fit along with a fair amount of luggage. Why not take the 2 golf bags with you to a dealer and see for yourself?
    Now remember we are talking about the coupe. In a vert you are limited.
