** 03 LS88 - 520 HP 520 Ft. Lb. Torque. Engine is a 427 Small block. It will be produced by LPE. The engine will be shipped to the plant and installed at the plant. The car is to be a direct threat to the 03 Dodge Viper. Look for this engine to carry over for the C6.

What do you think is the likelyhood of such an engine. I know there were rumors of 427s being seen at LPE at one time.

Would be interesting.

I have heard this too, but then I heard that if it
was going to happen it would be in 05' and all from the factory (no LPE) I know you can get a 427
after market set up from LPE now.
I would love to see a LS-88 next year though!

:D

I'm waiting for the same info. Has been tempting to take advantage of the interest rate deals. But the 427 and the H.P. estimates are even more curious. So for now I'll play and enjoy my '01.:cheers: :z: :cool:

Now are you saying the 402 CID is a 2003 rumor or a C6 rumor?

I know the 427 is a stretch but there has been enuff talk to investigate. I've seen people post sightings of 427s in LPE. Others have posted word of mouth from the factory.

My concern is that the M12, M6 or even the auto tranny is not capable of handling more than 450 (guesstimate) hp which makes the 427 unlikely unless they include changes in the tranny.

Frank; hope you are on the money. My EB02 is about 3 weeks out and I don't want to have to beg Rick to cancel the order so I can wait for an 03. If the bad boy doesn't hit the streets till C6, I'll have my piggy bank full by then. :D
