Hi everyone. Another one from the Kansas City area here. This will be my first Corvette but I have a large amount of experience in the C5 and C6 arena due to a large amount of LS1 and LS6 engine building and tuning. My 2015 is on order with a rather distressing status code of 3000. Hopefully I'll get my TPW next week.

Nice forum you all have here. Back in the day I was a frequent contributor to LS1-Tech. You seem to have a nice handle on the strife..so congrats to all involved.

Thanks,

Denzil

Welcome! Glad to have your here. Nice to have your engine knowledge and experience. Congratulations on having your car "queued for production." If you have a Z06 ordered, your TPW can not only occur at is own sweet time, but move backwards and forwards with the rest -- because it is a new model. If you have ordered a StingRay, you should be getting your TPW in the next ten days as you noted.

Good luck!

Thanks everyone. Wow..I shouldn't post while half asleep. I put way too many "large" in that into. I didn't go for a Z06 this time around. I love the car but I'm looking for something a bit less purpose-built this time around. I may regret saying that of course. :)

Pre-C7 there were some quality issues I couldn't really overlook. The engines have been fantastic for years but that wasn't enough to make me pull the trigger. The C7 changed my opinion.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Denzil, welcome aboard and congrats on your order. It reads like you've turned plenty of wrenches in your time.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I do have an update...my TPW is 10/20 so the wait shouldn't be long.

My other project that is finally back underway is a 2001 Camaro SS with a transplanted 6L iron block, forged assembly, solid roller top end, 408 CID. It had been put on hold due to a overwhelming amount of real world work. Engine is in the car, new 9" rear needs a bit of adjustment, and needs a bit of tuning. Should be fun though.

Welcome to the forum! The wait is agonizing but so well worth it. Best wishes on getting your new C7 and also with your '01 Camaro project!

Well I'm still stuck at 4B00 - Bayed according to GM. Waiting on a truck. Doesn't the trucking company have 10 days to ship after the build? It was built on 10/17 so I'm assuming it has to ship today.

Am I correct or full of crap?

I think they have 20 days? Mine was 4b for 21 days.....

According to Chevy Customer Support the average wait is 4-7 days. It looks like both of us are outliers.

My 2014 was built 4/29 and in my garage 5/7.
