Do you have one of the early Z06’s? Are you getting one soon? If so, it is very important to break it in correctly, and the miles required are different if you are running it on the road vs. the track.

The main recommendation about the engine break-in is that the vehicle should not be pushed too hard for the first 500 miles for street driving and 1,500 miles before track use. The car should be driven at varying RPMs and speeds and not pushed to the redline regularly unless necessary. To make this easier for the driver, the digital tachometer will show a 6,600 RPM redline before hitting the 500-mile threshold. Even though the tachometer will show the redline, the engine will allow the owner to push past this.

The  Z06’s eight-speed dual-clutch transmission also requires a break-in period, and as such, the onboard system reduces engine power for the first 500 miles in the first two gears.

The video below is hosted by Chevy MyWay product specialist, Billy Konsoer. He leads the viewer through the Corvette Z06 engine break-in process and why it’s so important. The video briefly looks at GM’s dyno testing procedure for the Corvette Z06 engine and the type of engine oil used.

Further guidance is included in the Corvette Z06 owner’s manual.

This Week’s Owner’s Corner

George K.

My infatuation with the Corvette brand dates back to 1953 when on a visit to Dr. Robert Pratt, our family physician in Williamsville, New York, I saw his brand-new Polo White Corvette parked on the street outside his office. I was taken by the flowing shape of the car and the mesh headlight covers and dual exhausts that gave it the look of a race car.

My dad’s good friend was the owner of a dealership named for him, Glen Campbell Chevrolet. When I caddied for him at the country club of Buffalo. I would always ask him about Corvettes and their various engines. As a young teenager, I would ride my bike to his dealership and watch new Corvettes being unloaded from the transporters. I studied the window stickers looking for the high-performance dual quad or fuel-injection engines and made mental notes of the horsepower ratings, transmission, and axle ratios. I was hooked for sure but thought I would never be able to afford America’s Sportscar.

In October 1959 my parents traveled to Europe for an extended vacation and arranged for me to stay with close family friends. I had just gotten my driver’s license, so Mom asked me to take her 1956 Chevrolet in for service while they were away. After leaving her car with the service manager, I stopped by Mr. Campbell’s office in the showroom and he asked if I would like a loaner car for the weekend. This 17-year-old car nut of course said yes and he promptly handed me the keys to a brand new 1961 triple black 315/283 Corvette fuelie with a full tank of gas. Readers will be spared the details of that humorous weekend but needless to say it was a true adventure. I have been a fuelie addict ever since, having owned and restored four of them, in addition to a couple of dozen other Corvette variants.

Tune in next week for part two of George K’s story.

Some random thoughts

Never follow anyone else’s path. Unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path. Then by all means follow that path.

Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

Any pizza can be a personal pizza if you have the right attitude.
