If you start with the 1SS + 1LE + ZL1 brakes then add the LS7 maybe you have a shot at say $47K.
(Complete wild guess, but I am getting the spirit of this forum )

There is something magic about 427 cubic inches. If ditching the dry sump saves a good chunk of dough, maybe we can live without it.

Then step up to a set of coil overs from one of our helpful vendors. There is not complete agreement on this but most think MRC does not belong on the Z28. So make it an option.

Of course others have said just about exactly this. (edit: Just above here. Doh.)
