Does anyone know if there's an ECU programmer or anything to boost the output of the XLR-V motor?

I'm not so sure Hans................I've crunched two XLR's in a little bit over one year. Granted they weren't from racing, but I dude it.

Ya - They said they wouldn't even START until next year... so it'll be awhile.

Performance Improvements

I'd start by contacting Corvette and other high performance speed shops in your area. I'm in the process of acquiring a V myself and I've talked to several of these types about "tricking up" the performance. The key, of course, is that you have to have a dyno and know how to work with the programming codes to maximize hp and torque.

For a few hundred dollars and a few simple changes you can make yourself (like changing the air intake and filters), you should be able to get a 10% improvement in hp (up to around 500). Then you'll have an expensive, but classey, Z06!
