    I heard a rumor that the delay is due to changes in some of the parts used for cooling the car.

    News first shared by jagamajajaran several weeks ago, is that the reason the 2017 Z-51 and GS manuals are not yet being accepted for orders, is the additional/revised cooling components.

    GM in now going through either engineering or manufacturing validation of those new components.

    Glad GM is being thorough before bringing out this 2017 improvement, though understand the frustration of this delay for those who have 2017, 7M orders pending. Hopefully 7M orders will start to be accepted soon.

    John - (nice to see you, btw) why do you think the manual would be affected by the additional cooling components? I thought that only automatic's had issues with overheating?

    There have been very few manuals which have had overheating issues, and of those, probably 90% were while on the track. This is going to reduce much further even that small amount of manuals which have overheating issues.

    The 2017 MEL constraint logjam is now broken, though as is typical for such changes, in a small amount. Thanks to Jag for giving us the heads up earlier this morning that this would be happening.

    Thanks to Mike Furman@Criswell for letting us additionally know that the specific number of 2017 MEL's that will be order-accepted today is 61.

    While the official form below lists 0% allocation, Mike contacted Detroit this morning and confirmed that 61, 2017 manuals will be accepted this consensus.

    Note that the TPW is August 22nd for those 61 MEL's, and for all other non-constrained 2017 StingRay and GS's being accepted this consensus. However, as a reminder to those new to the process, TPW standards for TARGET production week, and it is a "current best estimate," and schedules often changes, especially when a logjam is being broken.

    Now that shipping of 2017 Corvettes has commenced, the following information regarding Z51 Stingray and Grand Sport transmission and cooling upgrades has been authorized for public release:

    - 2017 manual transmission equipped vehicles are equipped with the front auxiliary engine coolant radiator.

    - 2017 8-speed automatic equipped vehicles are equipped with the additional front auxiliary transmission cooler.

    - There are no engine cooling changes for the 8-speed vehicles.


    I started a new thread for discussion of these changes here: http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/...n-release.html

    MEL is the option code for the 7-speed manual transmission.

    Thanks to Mike Furman@Criswell Corvette, we have today's August 11th, 2017 Corvette constraints. Most notable is that there is no contraint on manual transmissions, that the percentage of accepted Black Rose cars has doubled, though at 8% still has a way to go. Also interesting is that orders accepted this consensus have an August 29th TPW (just over two weeks from now).
