Camaro "big block" Zl1 vs. Nissan GT-R

How much can you trust an article like this when they think the ZL1 has a big block in it?

information on this car is funny. I have now heard "big block" "de-tuned Ls-9" "supercharged version of the 6.2 in the SS"

In reality it is just it own alumimum small black motor with a blower.

The average person is clueless about motors so all of those statments will work forthe masses.

Compared to the GT-R's motor it is a big block. I believe that comment wasn't intended to be taken as fact as much as was used to compare the much larger displacement of the Camaro's motor to the GT-R's power plant.

I have had serveral people ask me when they see my ZL1, if it has a 427.

I suspect that they just associate ZL1 with a 427 from the old days.
