According to 1/4 mile calculators it will be very close to the ZL1. 11.8 - 12.2

How in the world is HE trolling?????? We tried to help you understand why the Z/28 1/4 mile time was not going to be a good indicator of it's overall performance level. I see we are wasting our time....

the 427 is an option for the COPO

and from what i have seen they are in the 9s from the factory


I just wish GM would make a street legal car like this

The Z/28 was never a 1.4 mile star. Even with 500+ HP, I think that is 3.91:1 final drive will actually hurt its 1/4 mile times, being it is geared for a road course.

there is no way 3.91 will hurt its time it will only help it. it helped the 1le it will help the z/28.

the origianl z/28 sucked at the quarter mile becaue it had a 302. this one has a 427.

I think if the 1le can do 12.7 or so the z/28 whould have no problem with 12.2-12.3 at minimum.

the power difference betten the LS3 and the LS7 is night and day. the LS7 smashes it everywhere low end, top end, more rpm range. I have owned both. stock vs stock it has some much more power.

Correct the gearing will help the Z/28 in the 1/4. Calculators show it at 11.8
The 1Gen Z/28 SUPRISINGLY didn't suck. In fact it was almost as fast as the top 396.
