? That you can pop the trunk and also pop the gas cap cover by
pulling on metal lines hidden in the back.
● The little slotted cover on the dash behind the steering wheel is
where the inside air temperature sensor is located.
● All of the option codes are in the glove box.
● Tire inflation recommended pressures are on the driver’s door.
● The thing that looks like a little LED near the DIC buttons is a
light sensor.
● The thing that looks like a little LED near the defroster vent is
a UV sensor for determining A/C usage to compensate for the heating
effect of the sun.
● The build sheet is in the front re-bar.
● If you leave your turn signal on, in about 1 minute it will start
to ding (loud enough to hear over the stereo) to let you know you
have old timers disease.
● You can reset the oil life by pumping the gas pedal 3 times (but
not with the engine running).
● Hold down the reset button while on one of the trip odometers and
it changes that reading to the miles you’ve traveled since last
starting the engine.
● Hold down the Active Handling button for 5 sec. to engage
"Competitive Driving" on cars equipped with active handling (2000
and previous years must be stopped.)
● If you pull the seatbelts all the way out while you’re buckled in,
they ratchet back in to hold you tighter into the seat. (then move
the seat forward to make it extra snug -- Leafty)
● Simply remove fuse #2 under the hood and your DRLs will be out
permanently. Only thing affected is that when you unlock at night
using the key fob your front turn signal lights and back up lights
will not flash. Your front turn signals will operate normally,
however.
● The side-view mirrors can twist both forward and backward,
decreasing the chance of damage if struck.
● There is a release opening with a flap to let air out of the car
when the hatch is closed. It is located just above the driver side
rear compartment behind the carpet and on the side of the car. Not
that it really works well.
● Also you can ground your amp to a screw/bolt that holds the rear
middle compartment to the frame.
● If you have a 6-speed car you can pop the trunk when the car is
running by lifting the e-brake.
● There is a spot on the driver side just out of the middle
compartment under the carpet for the lug nut key. You should have a
compartment on the drivers & passenger’s side (in the trunk) and a
center compartment. On the left (drivers) side of the center
compartment, on the left side where the center cover fits, there is
an ‘indent’ that holds the wheel lock key.
● If you turn on the headlights, then go to parking light position,
the lamps remain up but the headlights are not left on.
● If you have the passive entry feature: If you lock the keys in the
car, wait a few minutes and then shake the car. That will unlock the
car.
● HUD has a shift light for the manuals.
● You can easily shift the M6 trans up or down without the clutch if
you match revs. (Not great for longevity, however.)
● You can eject the cd from the in-dash player without turning on any
power. Don’t even need key in the ignition.
● The cruise will disengage if you purposely make sharp side to side
turns while cruising at say 60-80 mph.
● When the engine is shut off, you can get the odometer reading by
turning on the parking lights.
● You can program setting #3 (both memory buttons at once) in the
seat memory to run the seat back and steering wheel forward for
getting in/out of the car with the engine running.
● If you hate DRLs you can pull the e-brake ONE click and they go off.


Power
First you need to know how your car is doing. A trip to the dyno can
give you quick answers.

Tuning software can diagnose and tune your car. LS1Tech and HPTuners
are two popular tuning packages. At some point in the future, both
packages will be able to do scanning with incorporated wideband
sensor support. At this time, December 2004, only HPTuners can do
both.

Popular upgrades:
Cold air intakes: Vararam, Halltech, Blackwing, zip-tie
Intake manifolds: LS6, LS2, LSX, Wiend, sheetmetal
Cat-back exhausts: B&B, Borla, Z06 Ti, Corsa
Long tube headers: LG, Kooks, TPIS, Stainless Works, Breathless,
Jet-Hot, GHL, QTP
Superchargers: ATI (go to A&A), Vortech, Magnacharger
Turbochargers
Stroke & bore
Head & cam packages: TEA, AFR, TSP, Patriot, Cartek
Tires: Kumho Ecsta MX, Nitto Extreme RII

Quote:
The convertible and coupe (it's really a targa) come with run-flat
tires, with 17" wheels in the front, and 18" in the rear, with tire
pressure sensors. The Z06 comes with non run-flat tire, but has a
tire repair kit. Switching from run-flat tires to regular tires
typically allows the C5 to ride softer, accelerate faster, and corner
harder, but if you use the tire repair kit (goo) on wheels with the
unobtainium tire pressure sensors, you'll destroy the sensors. No C5
has a spare tire. The best way to improve the handling of any car is
usually thru the tires.



Aerodynamics, gearing and top speed
The hardtops and Z06 have shorter rear windows, are less aerodynamic,
noisier, and weigh less than the standard C5 couple like mine. Even
though the Z06 has more hp than standard C5’s, they have a lower top
speed than manual Z51 C5 coupes. This is due to both aerodynamics
and gearing. All C5’s top out at redline in 5th gear, so a taller
5th gear, or much shorter 6th gear, or taller redline is required to
go faster. All else being equal, a Z51 coupe will still go faster
than a Z06. Above 190 mph, air builds up under the front of the car.
This can be solved with a vented hood like the ACP C5-R or MCM hoods.

Weight reduction
You can achieve substantial weight reduction with the following
modifications, while still having a car that's very comfortable to
drive. Most of these modifications will directly increase (and
decrease in a few cases) the safety of the car, while safety is
indirectly improved due to the better handling and limits of a
lighter car. Fighter pilots say "speed is life". Acceleration,
deceleration, and lateral acceleration are all forms of acceleration,
and lighter cars accelerate better in each of these ways because the
tires have less mass to control....thus a lighter car is a safer car.
Lighter cars have better moments of inertia which allows them to
turn in more easily and roll less. Lighter cars are also easier on
the tires and gas.

C5 HUD asennus

Lisään tähänkin ketjuun tietoa HUD asennuksesta C5seen, jossa ei HUDia alkujaan ole.
Kojelauta pitää irroittaa asennusta varten, siihen hyvät ohjeet tästä linkistä.
97, 98 ja osassa 99 mallien mittaristoissa ei ole HUD projektorin liitintä, joten autoon pitää vaihtaa myös mittaristo sellaiseen jossa liitin löytyy.
Liitin projektorille on mittariston päällä olevassa kolossa.
Lisäksi tarvitaan itse projektori, asennuskehys kojelautaan, sekä HUDin kytkimet mittariston vasempaan reunaan ja johtosarja kytkimiltä mittaristoon.

Huomioitavaa ainakin 97 ja 98 mallien kanssa on se että airbag valon polttimo pitää siirtää mittariston sisällä eri paikkaan.
Uudemmissa malleissa se on oikeassa alanurkassa ja 97-98 malleissa se on kierroslukumittarissa turvavyön merkkivalon vieressä.

Tarkista airbag valon paikka vanhasta mittaristosta ennen purkua!

Jos polttimo pitää siirtää, niin sille on paikka uudemmassa mittaristossa.
Polttimon paikan vaihto vaatii mittariston purkamisen.
Mittaristo purkuu takapuolelta ruuvit avaamalla ja purkamalla UV valojen ohjauksen edestä pois.
Polttimo vaan siirretään oikeasta alanurkasta kierroslukumittarissa olevaan airbag valon paikkaan.

Kun tarkistat vikakoodeja uudemman mallin mittariston kautta, niin huomaat että siellä on uutena kohtana SDM modulin diagnostiikka.
Mittaristo ei saa siihen yhteyttä ja ilmoittaa NO COMM. se on täysin normaalia!
Koska airbag järjestelmä on erilainen 97 ja 98 malleissa, eikä kommunikoi mittariston diagnostiikan kanssa.
