Corvette ECUs and Computer Tuning
Corvette ECUs and Electronic Tuning Parts and Accessories for 1997-2019 C5, C6 and C7
In the 1980s, Corvette enthusiasts – all car geeks, actually – were concerned that the rise of computer-controlled engines would mark the end of backyard tuning. Turns out just the opposite has happened. Electronic spark and fuel injection has provided the tuner with an almost limitless number of options for extracting more horsepower from his or her Corvette. Proper computer tuning is essential for getting the most out of upgrades like supercharging, cold-air intakes and injection/ignition modifications.
Of course, it takes more than a flat-blade screwdriver to make adjustments these days. That’s where a Corvette performance tuner comes in. Tuning boxes interface with the car’s electronics and electronic control unit (ECU) to display settings and permit modifications. Best of all a computer science degree isn’t necessary. Modern tuners are easy to use for the knowledgable Corvette DIYer willing to explore a little bit. For those gun-shy about diving into automotive computers, complete ECU modules are also available to suit specific upgrade combinations.
