If everything on your Corvette is working correctly, you can try Redline Water Wetter or a similar product. It will help with heat transfer by reducing the surface tension of the water, which means that much smaller vapor bubbles will be formed. Vapor bubbles on the metal surface create an insulating layer, which impedes heat transfer. Good luck.
