LS7 Engine Build option
 
Will we have the option to build our own engine for the Z/28? I'm still torn between the ZL1 and the new Z/28, but the option to build my own engine might be too much to pass up. What do you think?

I'm afraid not, this ain't the '60's anymore. :biggrin:

Did they even do that in the 60's? They do it currently, just not something they've announced for the z/28 yet. It is an option on the zr1 and z06.

Yeah I doubt that was an option in the 60's, but the Corvette program for the LS7 and LS9 always looked really cool to me.

I doubt they put the ls7 in the z/28.
If they did though, I may be trading in the ZL1 for a Z28. The forged internals will be a perfect platform to upgrade.

The LS7 is already confirmed for the Z/28.

where have you been, it was the big deal at the NY auto show 2 weeks ago, LS7 and the Z/28 where shown for the first time.

The Customer Engine Build option for LS7/LS9 for Corvette is a $5,000+ option...

No biggie...

Anyone dropping $100,000 on a new Z/28 can afford both the $5,000 engine build option and the travel expenses and time away from business to do it.

My bad, I thought you meant having engine options. :sorry: There has been no mention of a program like they have for the Corvette's for building your own engine(with the guidance of a GM engine builder)

You can also do it with the corvette grand sport if you choose a manual transmission, because the hand built ls3 that it comes with is built in the same plant as the ls7 and ls9!
