Hello newbie

I am turning 46 tomorrow and decided to buy a corvette. Never owned one, but just put a deposit down on a 2009 CSR with 35k miles. Going to test drive it and if all is good will pay for it and pick it up probably Thursday morning. Can't wait to get it. Stuck at work 400 miles away, so can't go get it now. It already has a cam, long tube headers and intake, will probably change the shifter first. I am a helicopter mechanic for trade been doing it since 1991. Looking forward to chatting with yall.

Got her yesterday and spent most of the day on the road. She runs great, supposed to have 500 hp, but no dyno sheets. I am not to concerned by the actual numbers. I think the disconnected the dual mode exhaust, because I don't think it works. It is loud all the time. Want to see if I can get it working again to get rid of the drone at low rpm cruising. The cam has a lot of lope to it. Fun as hell, love the car.
