I count my motorcycle as a DD for the summer. better mileage then the vert and still fun to ride. in the end the Z28 would end up at the track, vir, road atlanta etc. But the Z28 doesn't need the seat removed from the factory, just make it easy to remove. lol. you know how drag racers take stuff out before they go to the track and put it back in when they go home. same thought process.

either way I look at the Z28 as the boss 302 competitor and the ZL1 as the GT500. the 1LE as the SS track pack. just like the GT has a track pack. still have a gap.
I agree. Z28 definitely=boss 302 killer. I also see GM going the smaller displacement route in the near future.

I see them doing that when the DI Gen V v8 hits the streets. Same power out of a smaller engine. But I'm not sure how small they will go. rumor mills says 5.5 for the base vette. wonder if they will make the Z06 a 6.2. then I will say the z28 should have the 6.2. Because the Z06 is the road course car for the vette. the LSA is the baby brother of the LS9. so I can see that not happening also. but we will see in time.

Here's a link to my project thread:

I've basically done my car to essentially be a Z/28. Of course I started with an SS but if GM builds it that way from the factory it would be better and cheaper.
