According to Torque News while the mid-engine C8 Corvette will have an extremely intricate engine computer encryption system, GMís intent isnít to prevent extra power. See Patrick Rall's story titled "C8 Corvette Might Be Tunable After All."

While speaking with Muscle Cars and Trucks at the debut of the Cadillac CT4 and CT5, Reuss explained that the encryption system and supporting security measures of the C8 Corvette arenít intended to prevent performance upgrades so much as they are to prevent hackers from gaining access to the vehicle.
