Is this for real or what? Are they already doing the testing?

It looks sick.

Thanks
james

ps. I have used this shop before and they know what they're talking about. Good guys to deal with. True gear heads!
The same picka-boo-glass that the ZR-1 has on it's hood? Holy cow that would really blow the GT 500 out of the water when it comes to unique styling.

I'm sure it's already been posted somewhere, but it occured to me that the orientation of the humps on the upper plenum suggest, to me, that those might be for the intercooler bricks, much like LS9 has in ZR1; which leads me to believe the 2300 might be stuck on LSA in Z28.

Hmm... I'm definately thinking 580+ horse' now

Below is an common image of the upper plenum with intercooler bricks on LS9:
