Member gets time w/ Black C7 Corvette Stingray Prototype, Showing Dual Boost Gauges
 
10 Attachment(s)
A site member recently got some hands on personal time with a black C7 Corvette Stingray prototype (#37). He has shared some of his photos with us :clap::high5:

Oh, and dual PSI boost gauges are shown in the dashboard gauge, pointing to potential forced induction soon?

Dual psi gauges in the LCD cluster?

Dual boost gauges?

Do they actually do anything? I'd imagine they just sit there on the cluster at zero.

Thats kind of my question as well. Do they read vacuum at all?

What is the negative 12 on the boost gauge? 12inHG? No one says -12psi hahaha. Its called vacuum. Even so 12inHG is low for a healthy car idling. They must have just thrown some numbers on the dash for the heck of it and figured they will deal with it later.





I really like the center console and and ****pit look to the drivers seat. :thumb:

But that's how boost gauges work. So -12 psi converts to about 6.5 inHG (gauge). That seems about right for idle. Not sure how they will display it when it's really pulling some vaccum. Maybe the scale changes???

Ive never seen a negative number on a boost gauge unless you are dealing with BAR. 15-20inHg is normal for idling in my experiences. I've never heard anyone talk about negative PSI, its always vacuum(inHg).



Sorry for double posting on C7.com I figured it would get more traffic over there then here.

My boost gauge shows -PSI when idling and driving until I hit it hard. Remember, they are putting more and more electric stuff on cars so less is driven off vacuum I think. I don't think they have to run the same kind of vaccum they did 10 years ago.
