The engine would be very high strung. At least 8000rpm redline (M3 is 8400rpm). Basically a engine that screams like a racing engine.
Not the greatest for daily driving, but isn't the Z/28 supposed to be the road track car?
What's wrong with 420lbs of torque from the ls3? The LS3 is physically smaller, lighter and more powerful than BMW 4.0 V8 which weighs 450lbs. (LS3 weighs about 420lbs). For the cost I'd rather have a LS7 which rapes BMW V8
