'Muscle Cars And Trucks' is reporting an insider tip that the C8 will have an ECU that is blocked from being re-tuned or modified. They are saying that GM engineers have "super-encrypted" the program so that any attempt to modify it will cause the unit programming to "self-destruct." They expand on this saying that if it finds any coding that is not "as it came from the factory" it wipes the entire unit requiring re-installation of the stock coding.

But you've already thought of three or four ways to get around this haven't you? But wait there's more. Keep in mind that GM recently made an announcement that a completely new electrical system will be in ALL GM cars by 2023. The new digital system, we were told, will include the capability of receiving communications from GM. So GM could periodically trigger a self audit of the ECU as implied by the rumor.

Why would GM go to all the hassle of doing this? Probably Warranty repairs. Folks running an aggressive third-party tune, blow the engine, then restore the original tune then seek a new mill from Chevrolet under warranty will NOT be able to even run the aggressive tune - if this works.

The C6 was the first ECM that was, supposedly, not modifiable but it just took time to crack the code. The same is true for the C7 Z06 codes. But of course, the big difference is the possibility of the GM direct communication with the car.

So for what it's worth that's the rumor

that alone would make me strongly consider NOT PURCHASING ANY NEW G.M. products,
even if I had zero desire to re-program the cars software

just the concept that G.M. and obviously, eventually,
insurance companies the local leos, and your local dealership,
any after market maintenance companies, etc.
can real time monitor and track
not only where you go,
but the cars speed drive style ETC.
and mandate you not make any changes ,
is far too " BIG BROTHER WATCHING"
how long before the feds pull the cars ability too even start or run,
if you ever exceed a speed limit, or turn the car off entirely,
if you don,t stop by the local dealership on a cars scheduled maintenance date,
or if your 24 hours late on your insurance payments,
stop at a BAR, car won,t start for 24 hours,
got 60 k since your last brake job or 8K miles since your last oil change... car won,t start.
the potential for " BIG BROTHER WATCHING"
over sight abuse is staggering

Well Paul,ya know Angie goes thru Automatics like a bottle of water in Hell.

I always forget to check in here. We are still racing our c7z06. It blew trans number 5 on its 900th quarter mile pass. Its at right about 900whp and 850wtq.....but trans hates us for that. Lol
We have done the last 3 transmissions and are getting ready to install #6. We have two different trans experts working on our blown up ones to try to make them last longer. The last one only lasted 65 passes.
We have decided to run a lot less quarter mile passes and save it for standing half mile and mile events...and the road course. We picked up a buult 69 nova thats a full on drag car to use. It has a BBC, 871 Blower and two 850 four barrels. We are converting it to run on e85. Almost done. It ran 9.50 in the quarter and 6.04 the nextrace which was only eighth mile. We bought it on halloween and took it straight to vegas to race it...and figure out all the bugs. Hoping for low 9 or high 8. Still hoping for a 9 in the c7z too. So far the best pass is still 10.12 @144.
We still love the car a lot. No regrets!
--------------------------------------------
I would like to see her Nova.
