I am still a proponent for a small displacement (like a 5.3) said many times or the mythical 5.5 DI revving machine. LS7 sounds cool, but I don't think that it would do the trick. Sure, 427 sounds cool but the not so cool part is the 7.4L and all the gas it would suck and the cafe standards. I know for a fact, a 5.3L with 450-475 HP would certainly do the trick wether reaching the goal is by DI or agressive cam. The tech is there, just search the internet on some of these 5.3(327CU IN) screamers that are out there. The bores on the block are much thicker for all the abuse for a "track car". I guess that I will say it til lI am blue in the face or I get booed off the stage. it is the little engine that can.
