I thought people wanted a lightweight Z28?

The LS7 is pretty heavy, and it's more expensive to produce than it's worth.
Have you ever owned and LS7? I have, and now have owned an LSA and to date the LS7 is still my favorite engine. Maybe its just the idea of a 427 small block that intriques me.

I would buy that combination, but would suggest you keep the MR.

With more stats having been released for the ZL1, where do you think our (on paper design) Z28 would fit in regarding: skidpad, slalom, 60-0, 0-60 & 1/4 mile?
