ZL1-LSA-MR+LS7+Pedders Coilovers = Z28?
 
What are your thoughts?

I'd buy one factory built now!

lol so the car is going to have 2 engines? ooops read to fast corrected....ps the ls7 is to expensive for them to mass produce it probably aint going to happen

LS7 is going to stop being mass produced as soon as the next gen Corvette comes

I thought people wanted a lightweight Z28?

The LS7 is pretty heavy, and it's more expensive to produce than it's worth.

agree

I really think the gen 5 Z28, if one is made, will be the SS + "track pack" + Z28 badging...no new engine. I think the gen 6 Z28 has more potential as rumors indicate a possible 5.5L V8 in the lineup. That could leave the SS with a new 6.2L and the Z28 with the race insprired 5.5L V8.

Why not just do it for the 5Gen? One last BIG hurrah!!!
Then 6Gen can be what it has to be.
The LS7 is not much more in weight than an LS3. I think we understand the weight is what it is. So now how do we manage what we got? Power and handling!!!
This combo would tear the Boss a new one or two!

I'm going to play along and agree with LS7 and a Track Pack (Pedders or Pfadt work with GM, so...), but leave the MR and a similar wheel and tire package. I don't know if I believe it would be in the ball park $$$ of the Supervisor 5.0, but I also don't expect them to be built in as many numbers as ZL1.

Its not that heavy, I'm thinking 440 lbs for the LS7 vs 420 lbs for the LS3. It is expensive though, costing about the same as an LSA.

I thought MR replaced coilovers. You can't have both, can you?

Are we going to stick with dry sump or switch over? Maybe he was thinking about that too :iono: All I know is, I think that'd be a super send-off to an iconic Chevy engine displacement. :headbang:
