The only other viable alternative, for Gen-5?

Premier the coming LT1 engine as a "going away present" in the Gen-5 1LE/Z28...run some mighty fine times in the 3900 lb. version...then show just how incredibly improved the Gen-6 ZEE is, with a 3-400 lb. diet and enhanced Alpha underpinnings...

Direct injected, all aluminum, and higher reving (due, at least in part, to a cam mounted higher in the valley of the block). And a 4.4" bore spacing

Beyond that? There isn't much. Its expected that they'll come in 2 displacements: 5.3L and 6.2L. I wouldn't be surprised if VVT is used on all versions of it, and I'm sure they'll make a few improvements to the AFM system too.

I don't think there are any more facts or solid rumours about them.

And we'll see them at C5FEST, right?

However, I have no clue which C5Fest we'll see them at.


(you didn't think I'd be that clear did you? )

Thats what the rumour is

So the block won't have pressed in cylinder liners?

Could have liners, could have that new-fangled plasma deposition thingy-ma-do, could have something else.


Such specific details are not yet known.

That's what I figured.

I still feel that an LS7 Z28 is the most likely for this gen. Or maybe I'm just overly hopeful.
