When the C8 Chevrolet Corvette was launched in April 2019, we were all impressed by its baseline performance, but as any aftermarket tuning enthusiast will tell you, there's a lot more potential to be extracted from any car that leaves a manufacturer's production line. However, just as was the case when the Nissan GT-R arrived on the scene, the electronic control unit (ECU) was locked from the factory to prevent this sort of post-production enhancement. Either you live with what performance you have or you run the risk of bricking the ECU and having nothing more than an expensive garden decoration.

In the case of the Corvette, the ECU is so well safeguarded that even Hennessey said back in 2020 that it might need GM's help to unlock it. In July of last year, GM said it would not be providing that sort of assistance to anyone, but now a company called Trifecta Performance has finally mastered the ECU on its own.
