Try pricing an LS7 crate motor and drop it into your SS or 1LE...and be prepared for sticker shock...lol...

Believe it or not, it is actually more expensive and time-consuming to delete items off the assembly line, than to just include them...Different times, different mind-set these days...

I would love to see engine options in less expensive models, but it's not gonna happen at the factory...I say give it a few years, get a cheap used SS, strip it down, put in an LS7...then you'll have a more streetable car "similar" to the Z/28...

I think it's a miracle they even built a car like this in today's world, but hang on...perhaps "demand" just might get us an LS7 in an SS before it's all over...

Nothing can come close to the true factory Z/28 they built, but we may see the benefits of it somehow in other models...
