The Tune Time Performance 2014 Stingray was the first C7 your author was able to see in pe
After the introduction of 2014 Corvette Stingray, we couldn’t wait to finally see a new C7 out on the road. The 2014 Stingray has to be the most exciting car the automotive world has seen in recent years. The C7 is the biggest leap forward in the evolution of the Vette since the introduction of the C4 in 1983.
Matt Hauffe, owner of Tune Time Performance, in Lakewood, New Jersey, put in an order for a new Stingray as soon as GM announced they would accept orders. Once Matt’s new Vette was delivered, he drove and enjoyed it until it had roughly 400 break-in miles before baseline dyno and strip testing began. This also enabled Matt to accustom himself with his new world class supercar. For this story, we bolted on American Racing Headers’ new long-tube headers and stainless X-pipe. These exhaust upgrades would enable the Gen-V LT-1 to exhale more efficiently and will begin the groundwork for future mods.
