It was a tease, albeit a small one...just sayin....I wanna hear the LS7 as given with the tri Y headers and dual mode exhaust sound off under WOT....
Guess they have not gotten past the break-in period.

I would really like to actually be able to see the car sitting there at a distance far enough to gauge how it sounds and looks compared to the LS3/L99 Camaros. Didn't get much out that video.

To hear how fabulous the LS7 REALLY sounds, listen to THIS clip. I've even cued it up for you:

I wonder if they've fixed the valve problem on 427 engines? I've read a lot of expensive engine failures on Z06s from the Corvetteforum guys. I sure hope so.

I am sitting here thinking about how in the world I'm going to afford one of these!!!

This is probably the most ignorant thing I've read in the Z/28 threads. Ever.

No lift shift like the ZL1?

Z/28 sounds

IMO, The Zl1 sounds quite a bit better than the Z/28, especially when you back off the throttle. The Zl1 of course sounds better exhaust wise than most all cars that I have heard lately. My Opinion, Of course. Mine will be here next week, CRT, 6M.
